Francis Oliver "Frank" Haddock was an American police officer who, along with fellow patrolman Forbes McLeod, was killed in the line of duty while responding to a bank robbery. They were the first two officers in Massachusetts state history to be murdered by an assailant using a sub-machine gun, and the crime attracted attention across the northeastern United States. Their sacrifices are commemorated by the city of Needham, Massachusetts through its Haddock-McLeod Plaza.
