May 24, 2022

The Wareham Police Association recently awarded an “Outstanding Citizen Award” to one resident and also donated a bike to a girl who was recently hit while riding hers.

Resident Geoffrey Worrell was awarded a plaque for “his donations and personal time, taking part in most every event hosted by WPD and the association members,” the police department said in a Facebook post.

“He really deserves all the recognition,” association president Calib LaRue said of Worrell on Wednesday.

In a separate event, an officer delivered a new bike to a girl who was recently hit by a car while she was riding her bike last week, the department said.

According to scanner traffic, a child riding her bike was struck by a woman driving a white Honda Civic in the Woods at Wareham plaza on May 17.
