Declan Vail Joins HPD at Age 3
To say that young Declan is a police groupie would be an understatement. He proudly wears his uniform several days each week – even when he is receiving treatment at the Dana Farber Institute.
Declan met Bentley University Police Officer Ryan Hanley when their two lives intersected thanks to the Pan-Mass Challenge. Officer Hanley is part of Team Kermit which raises money for brain cancer research / treatment. Declan became Ryan’s ‘Bike Buddy’ and their friendship has grown ever since.
Holliston Police heard about Declan’s love of law enforcement and made arrangements to swear him in as an officer. Officer Hanley, joined officers from Holliston, Hopkinton, Franklin, Westborough, Springfield College, and Monson to witness this auspicious event.
Declan received a personal message from the HPD that acknowledged how proud they are to know such a courageous young man.
Publishers’ Note: These are the things that make Holliston such a special place and our police force is at the center of the caring. Thank you!
