WAYLAND — The Town of Wayland has come to terms on an employment settlement agreement with Police Chief Sean Gibbons.
Gibbons has agreed to submit his resignation to the Town of Wayland, effective December 20.
Ed Burman has been serving as acting Wayland Police Chief since March 31.
Gibbons has been on administrative leave since March 31.
The terms of the agreement have been signed off on by both the Select Board and Gibbons, according to a press release issued tonight, November 26 after 5 p.m.
By law, Gibbons has seven (7) days to revoke his acceptance, during which time it would be inappropriate for the Town to comment further on the agreement. Following the expiration of the revocation period, the Select Board intends to release the agreement and the investigative report to the public, said the release.
“The Select Board and Town Administration wish to thank the members of the Wayland Police Department for their patience during this challenging period and would also like to thank the residents for their understanding throughout this process. It is the Town’s sincere belief that the course taken was done in the best interests of the Town, the Police Department and the residents of Wayland,” said the press release.
Gibbons was appointed in December 2021.
With the Wayland Police Department since 2002, Gibbons holds a bachelor of science degree from Western New England College and a Master’s degree in criminal justice administration from Western New England.
