The seven new officers, five men and two women, were selected from 158 applicants, and after an intensive process, which included examinations, a polygraph test and background checks, Police Chief David Mara said.
Promoted to captain were Shawn G. Fournier, a 22½-year veteran who has received several awards over his career including the Life Saving Medal in 1993 for entering a burning building and rescuing a child hiding under bed covers, and James M. Flanagan, also a 22½-year veteran, who earned the department's Honorable Service Medal for his efforts in preventing a woman from committing suicide by jumping off the ledge of a city parking garage.
Mara also recognized Kieran L. Ramsay, previously supervisory FBI agent for New Hampshire, for the work he did with the department. The chief presented a plaque to Ramsay, who was appointed assistant special agent in charge of the Boston office where he oversees counter terrorism, the Joint Terrorism Task Force and the agency's New Hampshire and Maine offices.
