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.

THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS

MIDDLESEX DISTRICT ATTORNEY

15 COMMONWEALTH AVE. WOBURN, MA 01801

Domestic Violence Training Held for Students at Assabet Regional Technical High School

MARLBOROUGH – Today, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan spoke to more than 60 cosmetology and health assisting students, faculty and school administrators at Assabet Regional Technical High School in Marlborough as part of the Cut It Out Middlesex program.

Participants in the training learned how to spot signs of domestic violence and how to safely refer clients to local community service providers. This training is part of the public-private partnership started by District Attorney Ryan in 2009 to bring the national domestic violence prevention program Cut It Out to high school vocational programs, professional training academies and private salons across Middlesex County. The program also introduces and aligns participants with domestic violence service agencies, as well as specialized domestic violence officers from local police departments.

Following the program students provided salon services and free lunch to local survivors of domestic violence.

In an effort to expand Cut It Out training across the Commonwealth, District Attorney Ryan has partnered with State Representative Christine Barber to spearhead legislation that would require licensed aestheticians, barbers, cosmetologists, electrologists, hairdressers, manicurists, and massage therapists to complete one hour of domestic violence and sexual assault awareness training upon receiving or renewing their license to practice.

Domestic violence is a major public safety and public health issue. The World Health Organization estimates that one in three women experience sexual or physical violence. This new bill recognizes the value of expanding education about domestic violence and sexual assault in a community setting. Under the new bill licensed practitioners would be protected from any criminal or civil liability.

Cut It Out Middlesex started at local vocational and technical high school training programs to create awareness around the issue of domestic violence at the earliest stage of students’ professional development. The Cut It Out program was conceived and first implemented in 2002 in Alabama and has become the national program of the Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund, which is dedicated to mobilizing salon professionals and others to recognize signs of abuse and to fight the epidemic of domestic violence in communities across the United States. To date, District Attorney Ryan has trained over 2,000 individuals through the Cut It Out Program.
