LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – The longtime spokesperson for the Ludlow Police Department has been named the new leader of the force.

Lieutenant Daniel Valadas has just been named the new chief of police in Ludlow.

Valadas is one of two lieutenants on the force, and has served as the department’s public information officer for many years.

He replaces Chief Pablo Madera, who retired in January after a 38-year career with the department.

Valadas will be sworn in as chief on Wednesday, June 3 at 9:30 a.m. on the front steps of the Ludlow Town Hall.  Town Clerk Kim Batista will swear him in. 

Family members will be attending but we have to stay outside as the Town Hall remains closed.
