Norwood PD Mourns Retired Officer

Chief Brooks regretfully announced the passing of Sgt. Bob Doucette (ret.) who passed away March 14 at a Boston hospital. Doucette had retired just three and a half years ago following his dedication of 34 years of service with the Norwood Police Department.
His police career followed his proud service in the United States Coast Guard. Sgt. Doucette was active in the Circle of Hope and for many years in the NPD Honor Guard, marching in most town parades and attending services for deceased police officers.
Sgt. Doucette, fondly known as "Douce" to his friends and co-workers, was well liked and admired by all who knew him.
The Department observed a seven-day period of mourning with all officers  wearing a horizontal mourning band on all shields.
