NORWOOD — The Norwood Police Department announced the passing of retired Officer Albert “Al” Lane, who dedicated over 26 years of service to the town.

Officer Lane joined the Norwood Police force as a patrolman on May 2, 1967, and remained a steadfast and diligent member of the department until his retirement on July 16, 1993.

Known for his commitment to community policing, Lane played a key role in securing the talking Volkswagen “Police Bug,” a novelty vehicle that became a cornerstone of the department’s community outreach efforts through the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s.

Respected and well-liked, Lane’s impact on the community and the police department was profound, leaving behind a legacy of service and camaraderie.

A Celebration of Life for Officer Lane is scheduled for Thursday, March 28, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Kraw-Kornack Funeral Home, located at 1248 Washington Street in Norwood.

To honor his memory, the Norwood Police Department will enter into a seven-day period of mourning, with officers wearing horizontal mourning bands on their shields.

The Norwood Police Department extends its deepest condolences to the Lane family during this difficult time and invites the community to join in remembering the life and contributions of Officer Albert Lane.
