Aroostook County has a brand new sheriff

A 15-year legislation enforcement veteran is Aroostook County’s new sheriff.

Peter A. Johnson of Presque Isle, most not too long ago the legislation enforcement division commander for the sheriff’s workplace, took the helm on Sept. 1 when former Sheriff Shawn Gillen retired.

Gov. Janet Mills appointed him as sheriff on Aug. 31 to complete Gillen’s elected time period.
