Tewksbury Police Officer Kayla Sheehan received high honors from the Massachusetts Association of Women in Law enforcement at this year’s The Spirit of MAWLE Award Ceremony hosted by Babson College on the evening of Thursday, May 30, 2019.
Officer Sheehan received a Special Recognition Certificate after being nominated for the Excellence in Performance Award by her direct supervisor, Sgt. Brian Farnum. Sgt. Farnum recognized Officer Sheehan as one of his top performers as well as for being a mentor to officers working alongside her on the midnight-8 am shift with less experience. He identified Officer Sheehan as a highly motivated police officer who has distinguished herself through her attention to duty, her proactive police work, and self-initiated investigations.
Officer Kayla Sheehan has been a Tewksbury Police Officer since May of 2018. She came to the Department after serving as a police officer for three years with the Acton and University of Massachusetts/Lowell Police Departments. She also worked for the Westford Police Department for three years as a public safety dispatcher.
We are extremely proud of Officer Sheehan as she represents the highest standards of modern law enforcement and the finest traditions of the Tewksbury Police Department.
