The Brookline Community Foundation has announced Brookline Police Officer Casey Hatchett as the winner of its Unsung Hero Award.
The Foundation is honoring Hatchett for her work as the crime analyst for the police department, as well as her services as the treasurer for the Jennifer A. Lynch Committee Against Domestic Violence and as the co-chair of the Brookline Commission for Women.
Hatchett also coordinates the Brookline Community Emergency Response Team Program, is a Brookline Town Meeting member and is vice president of the Massachusetts Association of Crime Analysts.
“Casey is a unsung heroine in so many ways as she works tirelessly for the town as an officer of the police department as well as in numerous leadership and volunteer positions while also being a great friend to many and mother of four children,” said past Foundation Trustee Hsiu-Lan Chang, in a statement announcing the award.
The Unsung Hero Award celebrates community members who work to make Brookline better without calling attention to himself or herself. Brookline residents are nominated by friends, colleagues or peers for the award and the winner is selected by a committee of Foundation trustees.
Hatchett said in a press release announcing the award that she is honored to be recognized and that she couldn’t do her work without her family, friends and co-workers.
