GREENFIELD — Police Chief Robert Haigh Jr. has been sworn in as president of the Western Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association.

The organization, composed of police chiefs from Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden counties, holds monthly meetings and trainings, and gives members the opportunity to exchange ideas and information.

“It’s where we share ideas, it’s where we get our training, and it gives us the ability to keep up on everything that’s going on in the state,” Haigh said, adding, “I think it’s a good recognition of where Greenfield is trying to go, that we’re being recognized by our peers.”

Haigh has been a member of the association since 2012, and served as the organization’s first vice president for the past two years. He will now serve two years as president.

Haigh was sworn into the position last week.

“I had a great amount of support from my department, we had 16 people come down between family and the department, so it was a nice day,” he said.

In the role, he will be responsible for running the association’s monthly meetings, organizing trainings, bringing in guest speakers and more.
