Braintree's deputy police chief, Russell Jenkins, was named police chief Wednesday night after a search that lasted nearly two months.

Jenkins has been a Braintree police officer since 1983, serving as the deputy chief since 2004. He was one of three finalists for the Braintree chief's job, beating out Craig W. Davis, deputy dhief in Framingham, and Richard Rudolph, a commanding cfficer and lieutenant in the Detective Bureau of the New York City Police Department.

"The fact that [Jenkins] knows and understands the department; the fact that he's very passionate about the department, about the town, about his work, and that he gives a daily effort, that he's performing well, I think these are some of the positive differences," said Mayor Joseph Sullivan, who made the final decision on the appointment.
