Hamilton Police Officer Kent Richards received the “Superintendent’s Commendation” at State Police Headquarters in Framingham on Nov. 10. He was recognized for his contribution to the State Police joint investigation, arrest and ultimate conviction of Abigail Hanna.

In receiving the commendation, Richards was joined by his wife Rachel, mother Shireen, father Jim and Hamilton Police Chief Russ Stevens, Hamilton Police Lt. Scott Janes and Hamilton Police Sgt. Stephen Trepanier.

“The Hamilton police have always enjoyed a positive working relationship with the Massachusetts State Police and the results of this investigation are a testament to that fact,” Stevens said in announcing the commendation this week. “I am extremely proud of Officer Richards and all of the good work that the Hamilton Police do on a daily basis.”
