Jesse LabossiereIt's a sad world. These men and women are the last line of defense as citizens to protect citizens. They deserve a tremendous applied and what they do. We all know of what some police officers have done to get the distrust of people because of their actions, not all police officers are like that most of them are good cops. Keep up the good work1 month ago
Turbide RussThe people doing the ridiculing of the police and the hero worship of criminals, should really experience life without the police to call for help.
Let's give them what they want. Their neighborhoods void of police protections for, say, a year. See if they like life better having to defend themselves against the "HEROES" they hold so dear.
I mean if they want to make heroes out of criminals, and criminals out of cops, let's show them the world they're saying they really want.1 month ago · 1
Bernice GeroI personally have great respect for all Law Enforcement. What is happening with respect to the lack of respect and scrutinizing of our sisters and brothers in blue is down right disgusting. God Bless everyone of you...I stand behind you 100%.1 month ago
Just want to let people know what we saw today.. about 230 this after noon, we saw a car pulled over by a cruiser. However not what you think. The officer was helping the older gentleman change a flat tire. In a world where there is nothing but negative remakes and videos of police officers. I think the world needs to know there are plenty of good people out in the world.. ... See MoreSee Less

RACCOON UPDATE! Please be aware we know about the raccoon on top of the telephone pole on Pleasant St. We have been on top of this situation since it was reported to us. There are live wires involved which makes it dangerous to work around. Boston animal rescue has been involved throughout monitoring the situation and will be taking appropriate actions if needed. The raccoon is showing no signs of distress and on the midnight shift last night I personally checked on it several times and it was always in a different position. Please refrain from calling the police station regarding this matter as we are more then aware of it and the high call volume for the raccoon is impeding with the normal calls. ... See MoreSee Less

Sondra Picarello PendergastIt's happened to us a few times. How do you contact the drivers to ask them not to leave them on the mailbox?2 months ago
Jillianne CaspersonI had packages stolen in October- I reported it. It would be helpful though if the post office didn't leave packages in or about the mailbox by the road- I had to ask that they either bring to the door or leave a note and I would pick up at post office2 months ago

Mark McConnellSue I ran into a Berlin police officer at the Market Basket and he told me that George was not doing too well.
He was often an apartment through the city and I don't know if he'll except it or not but the police are trying to encourage him to move into it.
The officer tells me that they stop by several times throughout the week with coffeeand checking on him.
Just thought I'd let you know!3 months ago

Thank you to everyone who was praying for him and sending positive thoughts our way. Thank you for helping with the search. Thank you especially to Helen, the dog officer and the Berlin police.

My fiance found him walking down Highland St. At 3am. He was hungry and tired but seems to be ok overall. We will give him a bath & have the vet check him out tomorrow.
