The Mansfield Board of Selectmen recognized the retirement of officer Lance Lawson.
Affectionately nicknamed “No Chance” Lance, selectmen said he was a valuable asset to the department for decades.
“Lance was very well-versed on traffic and he gave us a lot of good advice at the time,” said selectman George Dentino. “He spent a great number of years adding the [traffic] tickets."
Selectmen agreed Lawson’s contributions extended beyond an officer’s call of duty and really set himself apart in his knowledge for the town.
“Lance was a great asset to the planning board too,” said selectman Doug Annino.
