Island police responded to a car driving into a tennis court, a malfunction at the Lagoon Pond drawbridge and a bike accident over the long Columbus Day weekend.

Tisbury selectmen voted to offer the job of police chief to Sturbridge administrative lieutenant Mark Saloio following a public interview and forum Thursday.

An administrative lieutenant from Sturbridge is the lone finalist among five applicants for Tisbury police chief. Mark Saloio of Brimfield will be invited for a public interview on Sept. 19.

The search for a new Tisbury police chief has been narrowed to five candidates from a field of 16.

Tisbury police and the Martha’s Vineyard tactical response team were called to a Daggett avenue home in Vineyard Haven Wednesday morning.

Tisbury is set to begin the process of searching for a new police chief, and as part of the search the town hopes to recruit candidates from on and off-Island.
