Franklin Police: New Patrol Officers Hired

Chief of Police Stephan H. Semerjian is pleased to announce the hire of two new Franklin Police Officer Candidates bringing the Departments sworn police officer number to 45.  After extensive background investigations which included education, financial and personal character components of all potential candidates Michael R. Bolze and Michael J. Colecchi have been offered employment as police officers by the Town of Franklin.   
Michael Bolze is a graduate of Penn State University and brings with him police experience as a special police officer with the Cohasset, Massachusetts Police Department.   Michael Colecchi is a graduate of the University of South Carolina, a United States Air Force veteran who was employed by the Douglas, Massachusetts Police Department. 
Bolze and Colecchi will be the first brand new Academy trained recruits for the department since 2004.  Both men took the first non‐civil service department administered entrance examination in January of 2014.  Some 270 potential candidates took this examination; Bolze and Colecchi were in the top tier of passing scores.    
They will begin their rigorous 26 week Basic Police Recruit Training at the Massachusetts Police Training Council’s Randolph facility in May of 2015.  Upon successful completion of all required courses of study they will then report to Franklin for the beginning of a 10 week on‐the‐job Field Officer Training component with veteran Franklin Police Officers as their mentors and teachers.   
After successful completion of their Field Training Bolze and Colecchi will be given their duty assignments as full‐time Franklin Police Officers and begin the start of what I expect to be a very rewarding and beneficial career of police work for them both and the Town of Franklin.
