Norfolk Juvenile Probation Officer II Paul Nwokeji was presented with an Award of Appreciation by the Randolph Police Department during a ceremony held at Belcher Park in Randolph during National Night Out. National Night Out, held on the first Tuesday in August, is a recognition of community partnerships.
“You’ve been a very proactive member of the Randolph community, especially in your role as the Probation Officer for our town,” said Randolph Police Detective Kristen Gagnon.
Mr. Nwokeji, a 25-year employee of the Massachusetts Probation Service (MPS), has supervised and worked with juveniles and their families in Norfolk and Middlesex counties. He first joined MPS as a Middlesex Juvenile Probation Officer where he served for 19 years. Mr. Nwokeji is currently a Norfolk Juvenile Probation Officer II in the Quincy office. He is also a six-year member of MPS’ Defensive Tactics Team.
“I’m overwhelmed by the support of the community, MPS, and judges. I enjoy going out into the community and helping juveniles and their families as well as seeing the impact we in probation have,” Mr. Nwokeji said.
“It was an honor to join CPO Vibert, Judge Joseph Johnston, Paul’s wife and son at the Randolph Police Department’s National Night Out event and celebrate Paul’s well-deserved award. His commitment to the community and the children and families he serves is outstanding,” said Acting Probation Commissioner Dianne Fasano.
