MAYNARD — Police Chief Mark W. Dubois and Fire Chief Anthony Stowers are pleased to announce that The Town of Maynard is in the final stages of combining police and fire dispatch into one joint, civilian emergency communications center.
The communications center is scheduled to open by July 27. It will be overseen by Chief Dubois and Chief Stowers and managed by Anne Camaro, who, along with representatives from both departments, has hired a set of full-time dispatchers trained in both fire and police dispatch procedures.
“It is our hope that the communications center will increase efficiency and decrease response time,” Chief Dubois said. “It will also allow more police officers and firefighters to be in the community serving residents and responding to calls for service.”
The Police and Fire Departments will have an auto attendant phone system for general business calls, where residents can reach specific police or fire officials or divisions. Emergency dispatchers are always available but should only be contacted during emergency situations.
Residents are asked not to call dispatch to schedule inspections, issue permits or to inquire about an emergency situation in progress. Fire department inspections and permits can still be arraigned through the fire department. If you need a permit signed or an inspection scheduled, call the Maynard Fire Department business line at 978-897-1014 and choose the correct option from the menu.
Many inspections and permits can also be obtained or scheduled using the town website.
With the new dispatch center opening in a different location, citizens may notice that if the fire trucks are out of the station on a call, the fire house may not be manned at all times.
The phone numbers for the department will remain the same, and there will be an option to talk with a dispatcher, but there may not be a firefighter in the building 24 hours a day, seven days a week to set up appointments or inspections, or to answer a code compliance questions. Anyone who arrives at the Fire Station with an emergency and cannot locate an official should immediately call 911.
“We are extremely excited about having this project come to fruition,” Chief Stowers said. “The dispatch center will increase efficiency by streamlining department communications and will also allow us to better serve the public.”
We urge members of the public to, as always, dial 911 in case of an emergency!

MAYNARD – Police Chief Mark Dubois and Town Administrator Kevin Sweet are pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department has achieved State Certification from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission (MPAC) at an awards ceremony on Thursday, June 4 at the Connors Center in Dover.
Certification is a self-initiated evaluation process by which police departments strive to meet and maintain the highest standards of law enforcement, and is considered the best measure of a police department against the established best practices around the country and region.
“Receiving Certification acknowledges the Maynard Police Department is in line with the highest possible standards of law enforcement,” Chief Dubois said. “I am incredibly proud of our entire department and all of the hard work that has gone into this process, we are now one step closer to receiving the Commission’s highest award of Accreditation.”
Chief Dubois also singled out Lt. Michael Noble, the department’s Accreditation Manager.
“Lt. Noble did an incredible job,” Dubois said. “I am very proud of him, and he should be very proud of the results we saw this week.”
The certification process is long and vigorous. It involves both an internal self-review and an external assessment by the Commission’s team of subject matter experts.
The MPAC program requires that departments meet all of the 257 mandatory standards and 60 percent of the 125 optional ones. These carefully selected standards 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, 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, the MPAC Executive Director. “Achieving Certification from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission is a very significant accomplishment and a recognition highly regarded by the law enforcement community.”
Earlier this year, the Department was evaluated by a team of Commission-appointed assessors who found the Department to be in full compliance with all of the necessary standards required for Certification.
“On behalf of the town of Maynard I am honored to congratulate our police department on such an outstanding accomplishment,” Town Administrator Sweet said. “We have always known what an excellent job our officers do, but receiving Certification is another level of recognition. Well done.”
Certification has been granted for a period of three years. Participation in the program is strictly voluntary.
