Chief Michael Lyle

Mike Lyle joined MAAV’s Board of Directors in 2006. He has been working in law enforcement for more than 30 years and currently serves as the Chief of Police for the Melrose Police Department. He has been with the MPD since 1986 and became Chief in 2007.

In 1996, the MPD shifted from a traditional police force to community policing. Chief Lyle realized that the police department and the citizens of Melrose needed to work together towards making the City a safe place to live and work. He knew that the police could not do it alone and needed the public’s support. To this day he still follows that philosophy.

In his role on the MAAV Board of Directors, Chief Lyle lends tremendous support to the organization. The MPD works hand in hand with MAAV to support victims of abuse, provide educational programming in the schools, and provide awareness events in the community. Chief Lyle is highly committed to the cause and to doing whatever is necessary to assist victims and help break the cycle of domestic violence.

Chief Lyle has been married since 1992 to his wife Eileen.
