FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Police Officer Brian Conner joined the Framingham Police Department yesterday, October 3, after five years serving the Framingham community as a member of the Public Works Department.
Officer Conner was one of four new officers sworn in on Monday morning at a ceremony in Nevins Hall in the Memorial Building.
