Congratulations goes out to retired Maine State Police Chief Malcolm T. Dow for earning this prestigious award. Col. Dow is a Houlton native and began his career with the Aroostook County Sheriff's Office in the early 1970's. Dow would later join the Maine State Police, and rise through the ranks and eventually become Chief.

He retired in 1999 and is now the Director of Corporate Security for Irving Oil.

The Aroostook County Sherriff's Department says "Mac is a true gentleman as well as a credit to his family, Aroostook County and the law enforcement profession."

Thank you for all of you hard work and dedication over the years and a big congratulations from all of us here at Townsquare Media.
