WPD Welcomes New Officer: Stephen Gaffney
The Wellesley Police Department is excited to welcome aboard Officer Stephen Gaffney. Officer Gaffney is a graduate of the Randolph Police Academy. Notably, Officer Gaffney put himself through the Police Academy at his own expense, which is a tremendous undertaking. Officer Gaffney also went through a lengthy hiring process due to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Officer Gaffney will spend the coming months working with, and shadowing, veteran Field Training Officers to learn what the department values and expectations are in the Wellesley community.
Two additional new officers are currently in the police academy and will join Wellesley this fall.
