Haverhill Police Patrolman Wayne Tracy Becomes Sergeant

Haverhill Police Patrolman Wayne Tracy was promoted to provisional sergeant yesterday at a ceremony in Mayor James J. Fiorentini’s office.

Fiorentini swore in Tracy, saying he is “proud to promote from within the department.”

Tracy was one of seven Haverhill police officers to share the distinction of being named “Police Officers of the Year” during a ceremony late last year.

Tracy along with officers Nicholas Brown, Dana Burrill Jr. and Rick Welch were nominated for their collective actions, making approximately 400 arrests, responding to citizen complaints, issuing more than 200 motor vehicle citations and tending to numerous city ordinance violations, particularly possession of marijuana.

“Their saturation of public parks and playgrounds on mountain bikes or foot patrol in areas such as GAR Park and the Bradford Rail Trial led to numerous arrests and citations for offenses such as drinking in public, loitering and narcotics violations. These officers were also involved in many investigations, leading to the arrests of violent offenders, gang members and the seizure of firearms and narcotics, including heroin, marijuana and prescription pills,” Lieutenant William Leeman said.
