Sgt. Patrick Boucher
While the recent changes in the Westland Police Department will not be announced at the regular meeting of the city council members due to the COVID-19 pandemic, officials have offered their congratulations online to Sgt. Patrick Boucher and newly-promoted Sgt. Cale Furney.
Boucher has had a long and respected 29-year police career, including working 3 years with the Detroit Police Department, 3 years with the Huron Police Department and then 23 years with the Westland Police Department.
Boucher's retirement, provided the opportunity for a department promotion and Ofc. Cale Furney was sworn in as the newest sergeant of Westland Police Department.

Furney and his family later this summer, as well as a celebration in honor of Sgt. Boucher's years of service to the community,” noted a prepared statement from the department.
“Congratulations Sergeant Boucher on his well earned retirement, and also to new Sergeant Furney on his promotion,” noted the post on the department Facebook page.
