CLINTON — Officer Michael J. Sayers, 25, a reserve police officer for the Winslow Police Department since 2011, was recently hired full-time by the Clinton Police Department.

He attended the Maine Criminal Justice Basic Law Enforcement Training Program.

While attending the academy, Sayers earned the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course award for being the top driver in his class.

He was also one of seven cadets who earned the Sid Bridges Firearms Proficiency Award. He shot consistent perfect scores while attending the firearms range.

Sayers was formally welcomed back to work at the Clinton Town Council meeting by Chief Craig R. Johnson after attending the academy for 18 weeks. Sayers was presented with a plaque for being the first full-time police officer to attend and graduate from the academy on behalf of the Clinton Police Department.

The blue pin on the plaque is issued by the academy when a full-time officer graduates from the full-time course. A smaller version of the plaque was hung in the Town Office after the presentation.
