FRAMINGHAM – Framingham added a new female police officer to the force on Monday, October 3.
Officer Madolyn Dyke was one of four new police officers sworn in yesterday, by City Clerk Lisa Ferguson in a ceremony at Nevins Hall inside the Memorial Building.
She graduated from the Lowell Police Academy on Friday, September 30.
“Officer Dyke grew up in the City of Worcester for most of her life and moved to the quieter Town of Boylston in recent years. Today, she joins the Framingham community to feel a little more at home in a busy city,” said Lt. Jorge Ruiz on Monday.
Officer Dyke earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Johnson & Wales University, Providence, RI. She finished her academic
career a semester early with a 3.8 GPA earning Magna Cum Laude and as a member of the Criminal Justice Honor Society.
Prior to joining Framingham Police, she was a full-time student, an intern at North Smithfield Police Department in Rhode Island, and also worked at
UMass Memorial Medical Center as a part of food services and dietary.
During the oral board interview Officer Dyke made the remark of not only wanting to work for the community, but wanting to be a part of the community. She wants to be a part of building the bridge that fills in the gap between law enforcement and the people who live in this city to recreate an even stronger bond.
During Monday’s ceremony, she was pinned by her parents Mitchell and Laura Dyke.
The short ceremony was attended by Framingham Police Chief Lester Baker, Mayor Charlie Sisitsky, and City Council Chair Phil Ottaviani Jr.
