Meet Bedford’s Newest Police Officers
BEDFORD — Police Chief Robert Bongiorno is proud to announce that he has appointed two new police recruits to the department, after a lengthy search.
Town Manager Richard T. Reed has approved the appointment of Farron Lomot, 22 of Bedford, and Timothy Barry, 22, of Bedford to the department. Both are Bedford Natives and Bedford High School graduates.
“I am pleased to welcome Ms. Lomot and Mr. Barry to our department. We have high hopes and expectations for them, as this was an extremely competitive process, with many excellent candidates,” Chief Bongiorno said. “I could not be more impressed with their backgrounds, depth of experience, and moral fiber. They are joining a professional police agency with a proud tradition of excellence, and I am sure that they will take us even further.”
The new recruits will be assigned to the Lowell Police Department Basic Recruit Training Academy for a rigorous, 22-week training that includes Community Policing strategy, investigation, traffic enforcement, and creative problem solving. The Academy training will also include approximately 50 classes in police science and other relevant subject areas, taught over the course of nearly 900 hours.
When they complete the academy, they will be partnered with a veteran Bedford Police Officer for a Field Training Officer Program. After that, they will be assigned to regular duty.
