“He’s a rock in this place,” said Commissioner Haas, “I respect him very deeply.”

Mrs. Mary Hogan, Lt. Hogan’s wife, spoke about her husband’s career, saying, “This guy loved the job from the very first day.” 

Noting that before he joined the department in 1974 he was struck with a grenade in Vietnam, Mrs. Hogan said, “They told him he’d never use his arm again, but the chief agreed to let him take the physical exam and Tim said, ‘If you let me take it, you won’t be disappointed.’” 

Receiving several standing ovations from his current and former colleagues, Lieutenant Hogan praised them, remarking, “This is probably the best department in Massachusetts, and I truly believe that.  There’s so much talent and we’re so ahead of the curve.”
