Officer given state sentiment
In 2002, House Legislative Sentiment 852 was entered into the appendix of the legislative record, commending Gaudette for his service as a police officer: “Captain Norman Gaudette, of Biddeford, on the occasion of his retirement after 28 years with the Biddeford Police Department. We extend our appreciation to Captain Gaudette for his dedication to the people of his community and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
According to Rule 213 of the Joint Rules of the Legislature, “Each expression of legislative sentiment must contain the residency of the recipient and must, at a minimum, be cosponsored by the Senator and Representative who represent the recipient unless the Senator or Representative affirmatively declines.”
The sentiment was supported by Biddeford’s entire legislative delegation.
Gaudette worked for the Biddeford Police Department from 1973 to 2001.
