Police Officer Michael Tremblay recognized for service
The City of Saco celebrates the recognition of police officer Michael "Mike" Tremblay's achievement of 40 years of service to the City.
Mike started working for the City as a dispatcher in October 1973. By 1974 Mike had become a patrol officer and has worked tirelessly since that time serving the public and making sure that Saco remained the safe community its citizens have come to expect.
Mike might easily be the most recognized police officer in the City. He was a fixture in the schools long before it was fashionable or necessary to do so, and he adopted Notre Dame School - or was it the other way around? - decades ago.
Mike has been recognized twice over the years with life-saving awards, and has received numerous other awards as well. He has also received countless letters of thanks from citizens he aided in times of distress.
Mike has always been an active member of the Saco community. Whether he'd be doing service as a call firefighter, or driving his personal fire truck in a parade, or helping with a Masonic kids fingerprinting program, Mike is always pitching in. It's no surprise that the Rotary Club of Saco Bay awarded Mike a Paul Harris Fellowship more than a dozen years ago.
And when Saco held its sesquibicentennial parade last year, Mike served as a primary City Liaison to make sure that things went smoothly.
Mike is an outstanding police officer and sets a very positive example for others to follow, and he has earned our highest praise for his long career.
