The Wareham Police Department is the fifth titleholder in our First Responder of the Month program.

WBSM named the Wareham Police Department the First Responder of the Month for July of 2019.

Nichcha Tansakul is a law student at Thammasat University back in Thailand, but she participated in a student-based “work-and-travel” program, bringing her to Wareham over the summer.

She was working at the Dunkin Donuts on Cranberry Highway one day in early July when she noticed her bike was stolen from the property. The Wareham Police Department was notified and officers went above and beyond the call of duty. Not only did Traffic Enforcement Officer Jamie White buy a new bike for Tansakul, but School Resource Officer Karl Baptiste got her a locking device for Tansakul to wrap around the bike and hopefully prevent another incident.

This act of kindness was made possible by the Wareham Police Association’s fund and WPD encourages the community to donate to the fun in order to keep generous acts like this possible in the future.

ProGroup Contracting is a sponsor of the program with FUN 107 and they donated $200 to Cops for Kids with Cancer in honor of the Wareham Police Department.

If you know someone who deserves to be recognized for their hard work and commitment as a first responder, nominate them below so we can honor them for their selfless acts of courage, compassion, and loyalty to the job force they signed up for, knowing that there would and will be challenging days ahead of them.
