A well-respected police sergeant has skipped the ranks of lieutenant and captain to secure the position of top cop in the Raynham Police Department, where he will encounter challenges usually found in far more urban settings.

The Board of Selectmen on Dec. 21 appointed 42-year-old James Donovan, a 23-year-veteran of Raynham’s police force, to the position of police chief, which he’ll take over on Jan. 1, when Louis Pacheco retires.

“Jumping from a sergeant’s rank to chief speaks to his intelligence,’’ Selectman Donald McKinnon said.

Pacheco, who recommended Donovan as his replacement, said Donovan is both well liked and top-notch when it comes to police work.

“If your kid was missing, you’d want this guy on the investigation,’’ Pacheco said.
