Hingham has two new police officers.
Mark Bologna and Terrance Low were sworn in on Tuesday morning by Town Clerk Eileen McCracken at the Hingham Town Hall.
Bologna is a U.S Marine Corps Veteran and Low is a U.S. Army Veteran.
Bologna, a long-time Hingham resident, attended Hingham Schools and then went to Maine to attend school. He joined the Marine Corps in 2001 and served for eight years, in Japan and Iraq. The achievement Bologna said he is most proud of is graduating boot camp.
At a selectmen’s meeting last August, the Hingham native said he enjoys triathlons which require discipline and determination which are also necessary for a police officer.
Low, also a Hingham resident, graduated from the Shore Vocational Technical School. At a selectmen’s meeting in August, Low said he wanted to be a police officer since he was 5- years-old. Low completed eight years in the military and said he was most proud of achieving the rank of sergeant after four years. After getting out of the Reserves he began attending Quincy College and is halfway to a behavioral science degree.
Both new officers were first appointed to the Hingham Police Department last August. The two new officers also received bullet resistant vests on Tuesday, donated by generous Hingham resident Keith Rutherford and his wife.
