Maynard Police Department Receives Prestigious State Certification Status


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.

Paving Scam Season is Upon Us

It is the season when the gypsy pavers appear.  This article is from last year but it is just as applicable today as then.

“A man knocks on your door and says he has extra asphalt and is willing to pave your driveway at a discounted price.  His high pressure approach confuses and intimidates.  You are not getting a deal, you are being scammed.

If you agree, here is what likely happens.  Men and equipment suddenly appear and begin “working” on your driveway.  At some point, the conman claims a mistake was made and you owe thousands more than the original price.  He threatens that if you refuse to pay, the “work” will cease.  You may be escorted to the bank, to withdraw money.  When you realize the scam you try to cancel the check only to learn it was cashed within minutes of it being written.

Paving scams like this occur regularly in Massachusetts and increase during spring and summer.  The perpetrators target senior citizens and are well known to police across the country.  Criminal charges vary by state but are commonly filed.

Avoid victimization and consider the following suggestions:

–          Beware of unsolicited offers to do paving work.

–          Do not let the solicitors inside your home.

–          Calmly but firmly tell the solicitors you are not interested and tell them to leave your property.  If they refuse your instructions call the police.

–          Educate yourself and your family.  Search the internet for “paving scams.”

–          Ask to see proof of the solicitors’ insurance. Conmen rarely have worker’s compensation insurance and if one of them is injured at your home, the claim could be made against your homeowner’s insurance.

–          Call the police if they begin “working” without your consent for service.

–          Be a good neighbor.  Paving scams target senior citizens.

–          Call the police if you have questions, or if unfamiliar people or companies appear at your door or in your neighborhood.

This article is intended as a public service announcement.  It is a warning that joins numerous similar warnings that have appeared in newspapers, on television and been sent out by the AARP.  Your vigilance will help police in their effort to keep Massachusetts safe and secure.  When faced with one of these scammers remember, there is no such thing as extra asphalt.”
