State Trooper Ray Burton, III


My favorite Medfield Day memory was seeing State Trooper Ray Burton, III, son of Medfield Police Department’s Sgt. Ray Burton, Jr.,  for the first time in his uniform, taking charge to direct the picking up.  I first met Ray when I was a new selectman in 2000 and he filmed the meetings of the Board while still a student at Medfield High School.   I later became aware that Ray had put himself through the Police Academy on his own dime, to make himself a better candidate for a law enforcement job.  It was great to see that he landed a job with the Massachusetts State Police.  English: A Ford Massachusetts State Police cru...

It is nice to now see his state police cruiser around town.

Great story, great ending.
