Arthur Boisseau Obituary, Death – The Ayer Police Department Wishes to Inform Everyone of Some Extremely Upsetting News.
We must break the news to everyone with a heavy heart that Arthur J. Boisseau, a retired chief who had spent his whole life in Ayer, passed away recently. Our condolences go out to his family and friends. More than 35 years of service were provided by Chief Boisseau to the Town of Ayer throughout the course of his career, which began in 1961 when he was taken on as a Special Officer for the department.

In the later part of that year, he was appointed as a Full Time Officer for the Town, and the following year, in 1974, he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant within the department. In 1976, Chief Boisseau was awarded the position of Lieutenant / Investigator, and in 1982, he was promoted once again to the position of Lieutenant of the Department, making him the highest-ranking officer in the department at the time. In 1992, he was promoted to the position of Chief of Police, and he remained in that role until 1996.

During the Korean War (1952–1956), Chief Boisseau served his nation in the United States Navy as a Quartermaster 3rd Class Petty Officer on the USS Silverstein. This service took place between 1952 and 1956. This took place before he was given the position of Chief of Police for the Town of Ayer. In addition, Chief Boisseau was the main force behind moving the Police Department out of the first floor of the town hall and into the current site. This move was made possible because of Chief Boisseau.

To bring the Ayer Police Department into the 21st century, he worked in concert with the elected officials and residents of the town to gain the resources and support that were essential to accomplishing this goal. On the day of the interment, which will take place on Saturday, December 10, officers of the Police Department will wear black mourning bands until the sun goes down, and flags will be flown at half-staff at all municipal buildings. The interment will take place.
