The Northville Police Department has hired a new police officer: Ken Delano.
Delano is the son of a local businessman and grew up in Northville. He is a graduate of Northville High School, and he earned a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from Eastern Michigan University. Delano has previously worked for the Mackinac Island Police Department and the Portage Police Department.
Delano said he is happy to be able to move home and work in the community that he grew up in.
"I look forward to serving the citizens of Northville and following in my parents' footsteps of being involved in the community," he said.
Delano replaces Glen Stewart, who retired from the department this past May. He will undergo a three-month field training before he takes his place in the schedule.
