Maynard Police Department and Communications Team Become Missing Kids Readiness Program Members

First Law Enforcement Agency in the State to Become Member

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois is pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department and its Public Safety Communications team have completed the necessary criteria to become members of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC) Missing Kids Readiness Program.

The Maynard Police Department is the first law enforcement agency in the Commonwealth to achieve this status, and the communications team, which oversees the town’s dispatch center, is just the sixth public safety answering point to become a member in the state.

The program was developed by NCMEC to promote best practices for responding to calls of missing, abducted and sexually exploited children. To meet the requirements of the program, Maynard Police and the Public Safety Communications team worked with NCMEC on the department’s missing child policy to ensure it met the critical elements of the model policy for call center agencies.

Sarah Finnerty, Maynard’s Communications Supervisor, traveled to NCMEC headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia last May to complete the necessary classroom training for the program. Since then, she has ensured that all department members have completed the necessary online training required for membership. Additionally, Maynard had to create a department policy and procedure for responding to missing children, which had to be approved by NCMEC.

“I am so proud to be the first law enforcement agency in Massachusetts to achieve this status and for our dispatch center to be one of the few 911 call centers to accomplish this training,” Chief Dubois said. “I would like to specifically thank Sarah for all of her hard work in making this possible. We are now equipped to respond more quickly, comprehensively and effectively when a child’s life may be at stake.”

Membership to the Missing Kids Readiness Program is valid for five years.

Maynard Police Call Attention to Recovery Resources after Three Residents Overdose, Two Fatally, in Three Separate Incidents

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois and the Maynard Police Department are urgently seeking to call attention to resources in town available for those suffering from substance use disorders, particularly those using opioids, as a recent spike in overdoses has taken two lives and left a third resident in critical condition after an overdose incident in another community.

Two 26-year-old men died in Maynard on Feb. 23 and March 24, in separate incidents after they allegedly overdosed on heroin. A third resident, a 35-year-old Maynard woman overdosed on March 24 in another city and is currently fighting for her life at a hospital in Central Massachusetts.

Chief Dubois is getting the word out to inform people about the dangers of opioids and the risk of overdose and to remind everyone about the resources available to prevent overdose death.

The Maynard Police Department is a member of the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.) and is part of the Central Middlesex Police Partnership. The Department has retained the services of recovery coach Coretta McGill, and she is available free of charge to those in need of substance abuse services and their families. McGill can be reached at 978-216-9863 or via email at corettaamericorps@paariusa.org.

Again, there are NO COSTS associated with McGill’s recovery coach services, and her salary and compensation are paid by P.A.A.R.I. through its AmeriCorps program. There are no fees and no insurance is needed.

The Maynard Police Department can also assist families needing nasal narcan, which is available at pharmacies and can be acquired without a prescription in Massachusetts.

“We are not simply alerting our residents about this spate of overdoses. We have resources available to help those who are suffering from the disease of addiction,” Chief Dubois said. “One overdose death is too many, especially for that person’s friends and family and for our community to endure the senseless loss of life.”

Anyone with any questions or concerns can also contact the Maynard Police Department at 978-897-1011 or 978-897-1012 anytime.

ABOUT THE CENTRAL MIDDLESEX POLICE PARTNERSHIP

The CMPP was formed in 2016 by the police departments of Acton, Bedford, Concord, Carlisle, Lincoln, Lexington, Stow, Maynard and the Hanscom Air Force Base. Through partnerships with the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health, Eliot Community Human Services, the Domestic Violence Services Network and Concord District Court, CMPP works to address growing concerns around substance abuse issues through targeted and ongoing substance use prevention, intervention and educational programming.

ABOUT P.A.A.R.I.:

The Police Assisted Addiction & Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to help law enforcement agencies establish pre-arrest programs that create immediate and stigma-free entry points to treatment and recovery programs.

P.A.A.R.I. works across sectors to provide training, coaching and support; program models, policies and procedures and templates; seed grants; connections to more than 300 vetted treatment centers; a network of like-minded law enforcement agencies; a unified voice with media and legislators; and capacity building through AmeriCorps.

P.A.A.R.I. is free to join and open to any law enforcement agency that believes in treatment over arrest and views addiction as a disease, not a crime. Since June 2015, P.A.A.R.I. has launched more than 375 law enforcement programs in 32 states, distributed 10,000 4mg doses of life-saving nasal naloxone and helped more than 12,000 people into treatment.

Maynard Police Investigating Series of Anti-Police Graffiti Messages Found in Town

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department is investigating a series of threatening graffiti images found throughout town overnight.

Sometime between 11 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 17 and 6 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 18, three anti-police messages were spray painted in town.

One, located at CVS on Main Street, read “Down to Die.” Another, left behind The Paper Store on Nason Street, said “Kill Pigs,” and the third, “Kill Cops Now,” was left at the Mill and Main complex on Main Street.

“These are extremely disturbing messages that we are taking very seriously,” Chief Dubois said. “This is no simple prank. It’s a threat not only to this department, but to the community as a whole. We will investigate and hold the person or persons involved responsible to the fullest extent of the law.”

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Maynard Detective Daniel Bodwell at 978-897-1011 ext. 1029.

William O’Neil

WILLIAM C. O’NEIL, AGE 51, OF MAYNARD is charged with:

  • Placing an Explosive Device
  • Possessing an Explosive Device

On Monday, Feb. 20, police responded to 7 Demars St. after a homeowner called 911 reporting a suspicious package on his front porch. Following an on-scene assessment, the Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad rendered the device safe.

Following an investigation, the Bomb Squad was able to obtain evidence that tied O’NEIL to the suspicious device.

The Maynard Police Department obtained an arrest warrant for O’NEIL and a search warrant for his home late last night.

Maynard Police Investigate After Construction Nail Gun Shells Are Found in Fowler School Bathroom

No Danger to Community

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department is investigating after shell casings from a construction nail gun were found in a girls bathroom at the Fowler School on Thursday.

During the morning, a student in a physical education class found what appeared to be empty shell casings in a plastic clip. She immediately reported the findings to her teacher and said that the casings were inside the holes of a cinder block at the top of a wall in the bathroom.

The teacher notified Principal Sharon Seyller who called Maynard Police Detective Christopher Sweeney, the department’s school liaison. Detective Sweeney determined that the shells were not from any kind of firearm but rather originated in a powder actuated nail gun commonly used by construction workers to fasten items to concrete.

The shells were spent, and there was no explosive powder remaining in the shells.

While there has not been any recent construction work in the building, officials believe that the shells may have been left in the cinder block holes 15 years ago when the building was constructed.

The shells were removed, and school and police officials do not believe there is any danger to the community or any criminal intent in this instance.

“The safety and security of children at school is paramount for the Maynard Police Department,” Chief Dubois said. “Thankfully, this appears to be nothing more than the careless disposal of construction debris. We are grateful to the student who immediately came forward upon making this discovery.”

Chief Dubois and Superintendent Dr. Robert J. Gerardi, Jr. have also been in contact about the incident.

There was no disruption to the school day, and classes went on as scheduled Thursday.

Maynard Police to Co-host Screening of Film About Youth Prescription Drug Use

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois is pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department is partnering with Maynard High School and the Central Middlesex Police Partnership to host a community viewing of the film “If Only” later this month.

The free movie screening will take place on Jan. 26 at Maynard High School from 7-8:30 p.m. Co-written and produced by James Wahlberg, the short film was created to initiate a meaningful dialogue between parents and children, and within communities, about prescription drug use and opioid addiction.

Maynard High School students will view the film in school during the day on Jan. 26 and hear from James Wahlberg and Melissa Weiksnar, a Carlisle resident whose daughter died from an overdose.

“This film addresses one of the most serious health issues facing our society today. Addiction touches every culture, every family, and ultimately every one of us,” Wahlberg said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to create a project that informs, educates and leads viewers to recognize the warning signs of opioid use and to participate in a solution.”

The Jan. 26 screening is open to the public, and supportive resources will be available as part of the event. Additionally, an accompanying display, called “Hidden in Plain Sight,” invites attendees to explore and interact with a mockup of a teenager’s bedroom, which illustrates signs and items that may indicate that a teen is involved in high-risk behaviors like substance abuse, underage drinking and more.

“No community has gone untouched by the opioid epidemic and that includes Maynard,” Chief Dubois said. “This event will be a great opportunity to come ask questions and talk about addiction in a safe and supportive environment. I would encourage all who are able to attend this screening.”

Audience members are invited to stay after the film and hear from Dr. Brian O’Connor of Middlesex Recovery, Chief Dubois, Weiksnar, a local person in recovery and MHS personnel.

For more information about the film, including a trailer, visit www.IfOnlyMovie.org. For additional information regarding the Jan. 26 viewing, contact Jennifer Gaudet, Curriculum Director of Maynard Public Schools, at jgaudet@maynard.k12.ma.us.

The film was made possible in part by Millennium Health, Recovery Centers of America and The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation.

Maynard Police Host Tourniquet Training Developed by MGH Surgeon

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois is pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department hosted a “Stop the Bleed” tourniquet training last week.

The program, created by Dr. David King, LTC, was hosted at the Maynard Public Library, 77 Nason St., on Friday, Jan. 6.

Dr. King — a surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, an assistant professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School and a combat surgeon in the military for 14 years — is well known for completing the Boston Marathon just before the two bombs went off in 2013 and then immediately treating those who were injured.

The hour-long course, which was taught by Col. Richard L. Bailey and members of the 804th Medical Brigade based out of Fort Devens, focused on the importance of training both emergency responders and civilians alike on how to properly apply a tourniquet.

Col. Bailey began the session with a short video explaining appropriate situations to use a tourniquet and how to correctly apply one. The video also provided information about Dr. King and how his program has been proven to work. Just days after receiving this same training, two Boston Police Officers were shot in the line of duty and doctors credited the proper application of a tourniquet for saving one officer’s life.

Following the video, attendees broke out into small groups to practice applying the tourniquets. In each group, a member of the 804th Medical Brigade demonstrated proper technique and had participants practice applying the tourniquet three times on a prop — a trick that Dr. King believes help commit the skill to memory.

Col. Bailey stressed that civilians and bystanders are more likely to need this type of training for injuries and accidents that occur on the job site, at school or at home, where immediate treatment is required.

“This is not just for an active shooter or mass casualty event,” Colonel Bailey said during the program.

Members from Maynard Police, Fire and the Department of Public Works were present for the training, as well as representatives from the Concord, Acton, Bedford, Sudbury and Stow Police Departments.

“We were honored to host this training here in Maynard,” Chief Dubois said. “This information is important for all public safety officials and civilians to learn, as they may encounter a life-threatening situation or accident in their jobs or everyday lives that calls for emergency treatment before first responders arrive on scene.”

For more information about Dr. King’s Stop the Bleed program, or to schedule a training in your community, contact Col. Richard Bailey at COLRICKB@aol.com or 508-456-1881.
