WOONSOCKET – Friends and family members watched as the Woonsocket Police Department promoted three officers Friday in a ceremony at Harris Hall.
Edward Cunanan, a law enforcement professional since 1990, was promoted to the rank of lieutenant, while Sean Carpenter and John Raymond were bumped up from officers to sergeants.
During his career at the Woonsocket Police Department, Cunanan has done stints in the juvenile division, the tactical unit and the gang unit. He’s also a member of the Special Reaction Team (SRT), the Honor Guard, and the detective division, where he currently serves.
Cunanan has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and is working toward his masters. He’s widely known as the chief coordinator of the department’s annual COPS Walk, a fundraiser for the national non-profit group Concerns of Police Survivors. The organization raises funds for counseling, retreats and other support for families of police officers killed in the line of duty. COPS Walk participants are all police officers who receive pledges by walking from Woonsocket to Washington, D.C. every May to raise money for the organization.
