While it searches for a new police chief, North Adams, Massachusetts has designated the department’s official number two.

Jason Wood was formally sworn in as a permanent lieutenant of the North Adams Police Department February 26th.

“It was formalizing the role that he has held for a couple of years anyway," said Mayor Tom Bernard. "He had been serving in an acting lieutenant capacity.”

Chief Michael Cozzaglio officially retired in early February, but continues to run the department in what the mayor calls a “post-retirement role” while the city looks for his replacement.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
