MacLeod Joins Framingham Police Force
FRAMINGHAM – The City of Framingham added five new police officers to the department on Thursday, February 2, in a ceremony at the Memorial Building.
One of the five new officers was Connor MacLeod, who joins the Framingham Police Department after six years working for the TJX Companies.
He was administered the oath of office by City Clerk Lisa Ferguson.
“Connor advanced through TJX holding multiple positions within Loss Prevention. Officer MacLeod’s dedication to work is exemplified by his long hours in Loss Prevention addressing internal and external investigations,” said Framingham Police Chief Lester Baker.
“Throughout his time with TJX, Connor has developed great ties with local Law Enforcement agencies and other loss prevention departments. His continued work with local police departments assisting in organized retail crime and larceny investigations prompted him to make the switch to a career in law enforcement,” said Chief Baker.
Officer MacLeod grew up in Burlington, and is a Nichols College graduate with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in criminal justice.
He is first in his very family to enter law enforcement.
His father Glenn MacLeod pinned his badge on his uniform during the ceremony.
During yesterday’s police ceremony, more than 100 people witnessed five new officers were sworn in, two officers promoted to sergeant, and one officer promoted to lieutenant.
Framingham Mayor Charlie Sisitsky spoke. City Council Chair Phil Ottaviani Jr., Vice Chair Janet Leombruno, and District 4 City Councilor Michael Cannon also attended the ceremony.
