Melrose Police Chief Michael Lyle Receives Hector J. Pelletier Award for Work with Jimmy Fund

MELROSE — The Melrose Police Department is pleased to announce that Chief Michael Lyle received the Hector J. Pelletier Award from the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association last week.

The award is named after former Cohasset Police Chief and former Massachusetts Chiefs of Police President Hector J. Pelletier. It is given annually to a member of the association who best exemplifies Chief Pelletier’s dedication to the Jimmy Fund, which supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Members from the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police presented Chief Lyle with the award on Dec. 15 during an executive board meeting in Middleton.

Chief Lyle was recognized for supporting the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police and the Jimmy Fund — through the annual Jimmy Fund Golf Tournament, which he’s co-chaired for the last three years, raising more than $100,000. Chief Lyle also participated in the Jimmy Fund Walk in 2015 and 2016, where he and his wife walked the entire 26.2 miles to raise money for cancer research.

“I was completely taken aback when I was announced as the recipient of the award,” Chief Lyle said. “I’m very humbled by the recognition and honored to represent the association’s commitment to the Jimmy Fund.”

Chief Pelletier was responsible for making the Jimmy Fund the official charity of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association in 1953. In 2016, the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police raised just over $250,000 for the Jimmy Fund through various fundraising events.

About the Jimmy Fund:

Founded in 1948, the Jimmy Fund supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute by raising money for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. The Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of community fundraising events.

Melrose Police Chief Walks Marathon Route to Raise Money for Jimmy Fund

MELROSE — Chief Michael L. Lyle reports that he completed the 26.2-mile Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk last weekend to raise money for patients receiving treatment through the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Chief Lyle raised $250 as part of Team Police Chiefs, which as of Wednesday afternoon, is giving over $57,000 to the fund.

The 77 members of Team Police Chiefs walked in honor of Lucas St. Onge, a 4-year-old from Lowell who is part of Dana-Farber’s Hero Program. Volunteer hero participants, whose pictures and bios line the marathon course, serve as a symbol of what the donations made to the Jimmy Fund go to support.

Along with hundreds of other participants walking for the same cause, Chief Lyle started at Hopkinton at 6 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27.

Seven hours and 51 minutes later, he completed the course, tired but accomplished.

“My aches and pains for a couple days are a far cry from what these patients and families are going through day in and day out,” Chief Lyle said. “I was honored to be a part of this important endeavor to support Lucas and the Jimmy Fund.”

Donations to the Jimmy Fund on behalf of Team Police Chiefs can be made until Oct. 31. Visit their page here.
