First Annual NPD Retiree Luncheon

On June 27th Chief Brooks hosted a luncheon to which our 28 living retired members were invited. Over 20 were able to attend and were able to visit with each other as well as several active members. Collectively, the retired members represented 581 years of service to the Norwood Police Department.

Chief Brooks addressed the gathering and delivered a talk on the recent activities and the planned future of the Norwood Police Department. One of the highlights of the afternoon was the presentation of a 17 and a half minute slide show produced for the occasion by Patrolman Andrew Jurewich and Lieutenant Brian Murphy. The video covers the years from 1896 to today.
