Maynard Town Hall Open as Cooling Center for Maynard Residents Today

MAYNARD — Fire Chief Anthony Stowers, Police Chief Mark Dubois and Town Administrator Kevin Sweet announce that the lower level of the Maynard Town Hall will be open as a cooling center for Maynard residents today.

The Town Hall cooling center, 195 Main St., is open to all Maynard residents until 4 p.m. today and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. tomorrow to provide relief to those who may not have access to air conditioning or other ways to escape the heat. Water will be provided to residents who visit the cooling center.

Additionally, the Maynard Public Library, 77 Nason St., will be available as a cooling center from 2-9 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow.

With temperatures reaching dangerously high levels, Chief Stowers, Chief Dubois and Town Administrator Sweet would like to remind residents to follow safety precautions outlined by the American Red Cross:

• Never leave children or pets alone in enclosed vehicles.
• Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.
• Eat small meals and eat more often.
• Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light colored clothing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays.
• Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day.
• Postpone outdoor games and activities and take frequent breaks if you must work outdoors.
• Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat. Don’t forget to monitor your pets to ensure they are not suffering from the heat.

If you see anyone who may be suffering from heat-related conditions such as heat cramps, heat stroke or heat exhaustion, move the person indoors or a cooler place and hydrate. Call 911 if the person needs medical attention.

Maynard Police Department Awarded Full State Accreditation Status

MAYNARD — Chief Mark Dubois is pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department has achieved full State Accreditation from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission (MPAC) at an awards ceremony on Thursday, May 5 at the Connors Center in Dover.

Accreditation is a self-initiated evaluation process by which police departments strive to meet and maintain the highest standards of law enforcement practice. It is considered the best measure of a police department against the established best practices around the country and region.

“It has taken a tremendous amount of hard work to get to this point, but we are honored to be recognized as one of the most professional policing agencies in the Commonwealth,” Chief Dubois said. “I am extremely proud of the Maynard Police Department and know that we could not have achieved the level of Accreditation without the dedication of our officers and staff.”

The process includes an intense self-review and an external assessment by the commission’s external team of subject matter experts.

The MPAC program includes 257 mandatory police department standards and 125 optional standards. In order to achieve accreditation, a department must meet all required standards and at least 60 percent of the optional ones.

Standards that are reviewed include: Jurisdiction and Mutual Aid, Collection and Preservation of Evidence, Communications, Working Conditions, Crime Analysis, Community Involvement, Financial Management, Internal Affairs, Juvenile Operations, Patrol, Administration, Public Information, Records, Traffic, Training, Drug Enforcement, Use of Force and Victim/Witness Assistance.

“Going through the process initially requires intense self-scrutiny, and ultimately provides a quality assurance review of the agency,” said Donna Taylor Mooers, Executive Director of MPAC. “Achieving Accreditation from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission is a very significant accomplishment and a recognition highly regarded by the law enforcement community.”

To conduct an initial self-assessment and prepare for the on-site review, Chief Dubois appointed Lt. Michael Noble to serve as the department’s Accreditation Manager. The Department was assessed in December by a team of commission-appointed assessors. The Assessment Team found the Department to be in full compliance with all applicable standards for Accreditation.

The commission offers two program awards: Certification and Accreditation, with Accreditation being the higher of the two. Accreditation has been granted for a period of three years. Participation in the program is strictly voluntary.

THOMAS MADDEN, AGE 43, OF MAYNARD, is charged with:

  • OUI Liquor (Fourth Offense)
  • OUI Related Offense While License Suspended for OUI
  • Operating a Motor Vehicle While License Suspended for OUI
  • Speeding
  • Failure to Display Headlights at Nighttime
  • Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle

On Thursday, May 5, at approximately 8 p.m., an officer working a patrol shift observed a sedan traveling at a high rate of speed in the area of 57 Powdermill Road without its headlights on. The officer recognized that the vehicle belonged to MADDEN, who had been seen by police earlier that day operating the same car with a suspended license.

Police initiated a motor vehicle stop on Powdermill Circle, and after an initial investigation, placed MADDEN under arrest without incident.

“Fortunately, no one was injured as a result of this individual’s reckless decision to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and with a suspended license,” Chief Dubois said. “We have zero tolerance for this behavior and I want to remind residents to never, under any circumstances, get behind the wheel if you have been drinking.”

MADDEN was held on $10,000 bail pending his arraignment at Concord District Court.

These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.

MAYNARD — Chief Mark Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department arrested a man over the weekend for his fifth Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol offense.

JOSEPH P. LYNSKY, AGE 74, OF MAYNARD, is charged with:

  • OUI Liquor (Fifth Offense)
  • Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle
  • Operating With a Defective Tire (cut over 1 inch in length)

On Saturday, March 12, at approximately 10:50 a.m., Officer Shawn Corrigan was on Main Street when several pedestrians alerted him to a vehicle driving on its rim farther down the road. After continuing to travel down Main Street, Officer Corrigan observed that the front right tire was almost completely missing from a vehicle as it made a right turn onto River Street.

He then observed the operator, later identified as LYNSKY, exit the driver’s seat of the vehicle. Officer Corrigan stopped to assist LYNSKY and immediately noticed that he was very unsteady on his feet and smelled of alcohol.

After an investigation, LYNSKY was placed under arrest. He was released on bail later that day and arraigned at Concord District Court this morning.

“The actions of this individual were extremely reckless as he put his own life and the lives of all other motorists and pedestrians in danger,” Chief Dubois said. “Thanks to the swift action of residents and the quick response by police, this man was taken into custody without incident.”

These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.

Maynard Police Provide Child Seat Safety Tips

MAYNARD — Police Chief Mark W. Dubois and the Maynard Police Department are working to ensure children stay safe while in the car with family or friends by reminding the community about correctly securing young passengers in car seats or boosters.

The Massachusetts Child Passenger Safety Law requires that all children sit in a federally approved car seat or booster, which must be properly fastened and secured, until they are 8 years old or over 57 inches tall. It is recommended that children under the age of 13 ride in the back seat.

All infants and toddlers should be in rear-facing car seats until they reach the age of 2 years old, or the weight and height limit issued by the manufacturer. Toddlers and preschoolers should be placed in convertible and forward-facing seats equipped with a harness. Once school-aged children outgrow their forward-facing seats, they should sit in a booster until they are old enough to wear a seat belt.

“It is imperative that residents take the time to properly install a car seat or booster to ensure their children remain safe while in the car,” Chief Dubois said. “Please also remember that the safest place for your children is the back seat of a vehicle.”

According to the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, 75 percent of child safety seats are installed incorrectly, and motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of death and injury for all children. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 638 children 12 years old and younger were killed in motor vehicle accidents in 2013, and that more than 127,250 were injured.

Properly securing your child in an age and size appropriate car seat greatly lowers the risk of serious and fatal injuries. The CDC reports that:

  • Car seats reduce the risk of death to infants by 71 percent, and to toddlers between ages 1 to 4 by 54 percent.
  • Booster seats decrease the risk for serious injury by 45 percent for children 4 to 8 years old when compared with solely seat belt use.

For more information on child car seat safety or need help with installation please contact the Maynard Police Department at 978-897-1011 or to find a checkup event, visit www.mass.gov/childsafetyseats.
