New Woonsocket officers sworn in

December 20, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Nearly all of them speak at least a little Spanish, one’s learning sign language and another’s been patrolling the corridors of a federal penitentiary a couple of miles away.
They’re five new members of the Woonsocket Police Department, sworn in yesterday at police headquarters after graduating from the state Municipal Police Academy in Lincoln.
“They’re very special people,” said Police Chief Thomas Carey. “Hundreds of people apply for these jobs. We try to get the best people we possibly can.”
