On June 16, 2010, Sergeant Doug Weddleton was killed in the line of duty. Sgt. Weddleton was working a construction detail on Rt. 95 in Mansfield when he encountered a vehicle that had blocked the ramp. While speaking with the operator of this vehicle a second vehicle struck the first vehicle, which ultimately caused the death of Sgt. Weddleton.
Today, members of the State Police gathered at SP Foxboro to participate in a wreath laying ceremony remembering Doug. Present were Doug’s wife Judith, Doug’s family, friends, and co-workers. Presently three of Doug’s children have followed in their dad’s footsteps and have become troopers. Mark, Stephen and Ross are now wearing the French and Electric Blue and serving the citizens of the commonwealth. We all know how proud Doug is of you as you continue his legacy of serving.
