FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham City Council last Tuesday unanimously approved the Mayor’s nominees for the newly-created Framingham Police Advisory Committee.
Mayor Yvonne Spicer had nominated three two women and a former Framingham Police detective to the Committee.
The new City Charter called for the creation of a Police Advisory Committee.
The Police Advisory Committee acts in an advisory capacity to the Police Department by bringing to its attention feed-back from the community concerning public safety issues.
Approved by the City Council in an 11-0 vote were:
- Lawrence Hendry – District 6 for a 3-year term
- Nicole Doak – District 7 for a 2-year term
- Susan Santone – District 1 for a 1-year term.
Hendry is a retired Framingham Police detective and a former Framingham Town Meeting member.
Doak is active with the Framingham League of Women Voters.
Santone is a member of the Framingham Disability Commission.
The Mayor’s office did not release how many applicants there were for the Committee.
“The Police Advisory Committee is devoted to facilitating the flow of ideas relative to police services for the Framingham community,” according to the City.
