Wellesley Police Chief Jack Pilecki regrets to announce the death of retired Wellesley Police Sergeant James V. Maccini.  Sergeant Maccini passed away on Sunday, January 13, 2019 in Florida where he resided. 

Sgt. Maccini, a Wellesley resident, began working for the Wellesley Police Department in 1960 as a temporary patrolman when needed.  In 1961 he entered military service, and specifically worked as a Military Police Officer until 1964, when he rejoined the department as a temporary patrolman. 

Sgt. Maccini was appointed a permanent patrolman to the Wellesley Police Department in November of 1966.  Sgt. Maccini worked as a patrolman and photographer for the department until 1976, when he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant.  Sergeant Maccini served as a shift commander and supervisor until his retirement.  He attended numerous trainings and classes as a sergeant, and became an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) working on the Wellesley Police Department run ambulance.  He also attended command school run by the New England Institute of Law Enforcement Management, which at the time was often referred to as “Babson Command School” for new sergeants.

Sergeant Maccini retired from the Wellesley Police Department in July of 1986.
