The 27-year-old Londonderry man has been a steady fixture at the Mammoth Road police station over the past 11 years, having spent almost every Tuesday helping out with various tasks.
“We have a pretty large volunteer force here, but Joe’s definitely our longest-serving volunteer,” Police Chief Bill Hart said. “Joe takes on all kinds of projects at the station and completes them in a timely fashion. He’s become a friend to so many of us.”
Hart said he plans to further celebrate Ramsay’s milestone in the coming days: the two men share a love of hockey and will attend a Manchester Monarchs game together sometime soon.Asked what he likes best about his job at the police department, Ramsay didn’t hesitate to reply. “Everything,” he declared.
Melcher’s interest in law enforcement began in the early 1970s, when she was involved in the school district’s Police Explorer program.
Things have changed quite a bit over that time period.
Sgt. Jason Breen, a 13-year veteran of the Londonderry police force, was assigned to a newly created position, services sergeant. Breen’s new duties include overseeing the records department, dispatch and training divisions, as well as overseeing the department’s field training program.
Detective Daniel Hurley III and Sgt. Nicholas Pinardi were both recognized for their recent promotions from police officer positions. Recent hires Officer Michael Tufo and Officer Ryan Buker were sworn in to the Londonderry Police Department. Tufo previously worked for the Milford Police Department, while Buker was a police officer in Goffstown.
