69th ROC Colors

Due to the world we live in right now, the 69th R.O.C. will not have the traditional Graduation as in years past.

I can still remember the bagpipes from my father’s graduation from the 24th PPAC in 1997.  This year however, the Plymouth Police Academy will be sending off recruits with a modified ceremony. Because of this, the usual expenses of graduation will be donated to give back to a greater good.

The first is the Bates Elementary School, suggested by Student Officer Nicholas Frasso of the Quincy Police Department.  The Bates School runs a Holiday Donation Program.  Each year, the program supplies over 30 children with warm clothing, school supplies, and holiday gifts.

The second is the Yarmouth Police Foundation.  The Yarmouth Police Department is currently raising funds for the Sergeant Sean M. Gannon K9 / Police Officer Training Facility.  Sergeant Gannon was killed in the line of duty on April 12, 2018 while assisting with a warrant service in the Town of Barnstable.  The donation will be presented to the Yarmouth Police Department by Student Officers from the Barnstable Police Department.
