“The New Bedford Police Department grieves the passing of retired Capt. Richard M. Spirlet of Westport.

He was the beloved husband of Lois (Shea) Spirlet, father of Susan Spirlet, Troy Spirlet (Donna), and Tara Spirlet Johnsons (Steven) and brother of Anne Spirlet.

Capt. Spirlet’s contributions to the NBPD and the City of New Bedford are historic and deeply respected. He served as Commander of the north end station, PIO, and as the Coty’s first K-9 officer along with a host of other outstading and memorable achievements. Capt. Spirlet was also a veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard.

“Capt. Spirlet’s contributions to the department and community remain significant to this day. He left a positive impression wherever he went, and for me personally, he was a rare and irreplaceable friend.”-Chief Cordeiro.

Our deepest sympathy is extended to his wife, children, ad entire family. We will remember and honor him always. Our hearts are collectively broken with the loss of this amazing man. #RIP.”
