O’Malley has a B.A. in Political Science from Providence College and attended the Command Training Program at Roger Williams University. He has advanced training certifications in Crisis Negotiation and Practical Homicide Investigations and is a certified Civil Rights Officer. He has received numerous departmental commendations and citations, as well as the Colonel Award from the Maine State Police, the New Hampshire Congressional Law Enforcement Award, and the Community Advocate Award from Androscoggin County Sexual Assault Prevention and Response. He has actively supported Special Olympics of Maine for over 20 years and was inducted as a volunteer into the Special Olympics Hall of Fame.

“Brian O’Malley is a consummate professional and is well respected both inside and outside of the law enforcement community,” said Chief Bussiere. “I have every confidence that he will excel in this new role as he helps lead the dedicated men and women of the Lewiston Police Department in service to our community.”

“I am deeply appreciative of the confidence shown in me by the Chief, the members of the Lewiston Police Department and the City of Lewiston,” said O’Malley. “Working with Chief Bussiere and the men and women of the Department, I know that we will continue to proudly and effectively serve the citizens of Lewiston by providing a professional and caring police department.”
