Combative Man Arrested in Rochester Is Moved to Bridgewater State Correctional Facility

On the morning of 3/31/, officers Brenden Emberg and Christopher Zutaut responded to a noise disturbance call. After initially resolving the issue, they were dispatched back because the original subject had violated probation by cutting off his ankle monitoring device after the officers left.

He was subsequently arrested and brought to the Rochester Police Department. The subject has a history of violence and mental health issues and soon became extremely combative. Due to the Covid crisis, many facilities are closed which created more urgency and fewer options.

The Plymouth County Sheriff's Department provided a team equipped for extraction of violent offenders and removed the man from his jail cell without injuries to him or any officers. He was then transported to the Bridgewater State Correctional Facility.

Plymouth County Outreach to Receive $, Federal Grant

Plymouth County Outreach

The Police Chiefs of Plymouth County are pleased to announce that Plymouth County Outreach (PCO) has been awarded a federal grant that will significantly improve the services provided by the group in the coming years.

PCO will receive the $, grant as part of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) Program through the U.S. Department of Justice.

The award is among the first major federal funding grants to go toward substance use disorder treatment and recovery legislation, with the aim of addressing the ongoing opioid epidemic.

"We are incredibly fortunate to have been selected by the DOJ for the CARA grant and these funds will hopefully go a long way toward helping our Plymouth County residents who have been impacted by the opioid crisis and their families," East Bridgewater Police Chief Scott Allen said.

The funds, which will be dispersed over the next two years, will allow PCO to hire two full-time staff members, a Project Coordinator and an Operations Supervisor. Those positions will allow PCO to offer better resources to individuals who are in need of treatment in a more streamlined and effective fashion.

"We will be looking to hire two full-time staff members who are dedicated to working with Plymouth County residents each and every day and can represent Plymouth County Outreach in all of our communities," Middleborough Police Chief Joseph Perkins said.

In addition, the money will allow PCO to improve their Critical Incident Management System database, which tracks the number of overdoses in the region and allows for research and detailed analysis of the data collected to be studied by PCO's treatment and healthcare partners.

"In receiving this grant from the federal government this shows, I believe, that our program and approach is on the forefront of combining the efforts of law enforcement, healthcare providers and treatment professionals in providing care to those opioid users in our communities who are in need," Plymouth Police Chief Michael Botieri said.

In addition to Plymouth County Outreach, 11 other Massachusetts programs will receive a total of $ million in grant funding:

  • Plymouth County District Attorney's Office awarded $,
  • Middlesex District Attorney's Office awarded one grant of $, and one of $,
  • Boston Police Department awarded $,
  • City of Holyoke Police Department awarded $,
  • Massachusetts Administrative Office of the Trial Court awarded $ million
  • Advocates for Human Potential awarded $ million
  • City of Worcester awarded $,
  • Franklin County Sheriff's Office awarded $1 million
  • LUK Crisis Center awarded $,

"In , over 2, Massachusetts residents died from drug overdoses," said United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling. "The opioid crisis is an unprecedented public health crisis in the United States, but we are committed to the President's plan to end the epidemic through prevention, treatment and enforcement. With over $8 million in federal grant funding, programs in Massachusetts can expand to serve larger populations, increase services, and support those who are most impacted by this deadly epidemic. I applaud the grant recipients for their commitment to serve their communities in this way."

Plymouth County Outreach is an opioid prevention and recovery coalition made up of 27 municipal police departments in Plymouth County, along with the Bridgewater State University Police. The chiefs have partnered with the offices of District Attorney Timothy Cruz and Sheriff Joseph McDonald to take a multi-jurisdictional approach to dealing with the opioid epidemic.

Today, several member chiefs met this morning to discuss the announcement of the grant.

"The work being done by our partners in law enforcement and the treatment and healthcare industries is vital to combating this deadly epidemic. In Plymouth County and everywhere else, one overdose death is one too many," Hanover Police Chief Walter Sweeney said.

The Republican governor signed

Sours: https://www.nbcboston.com/tag/massachusetts-state-police/

Now discussing:

Three State Police officers have resigned rather than buck the governor&#;s vaccine mandate as the agency reports a new class of recruit graduates today just in time.

The agency did not respond to a Herald request for a tally of others who may have quit &#; in what is labeled as an &#;ordinary discharge&#; &#; as the vaccine mandate rolled out this week.

Sgt. Michael Cherven, president of the State Police Association of Massachusetts, said earlier this week that nearly troopers had yet to get the vax. He said labor organizations are asking for masking and testing for unvaccinated members who don’t qualify for exemptions and who remain vaccine-hesitant.

“That’s all we’re asking for — a mask and weekly testing,” Cherven said Monday, adding he fears State Police could be left severely understaffed otherwise.

The State Police announced Wednesday that trainees of the Massachusetts State Police 86th Recruit Training Troop are set to graduate and get to work by Friday.

&#;The graduates will report to barracks across the state to begin service as Troopers in the MSP’s Field Division, patrolling state highways and roads and performing other patrol duties from Cape Cod to the Berkshires,&#; agency spokesman Dave Procopio wrote in a statement.

Gov. Charlie Baker will preside over the graduation today at the DCU Center in Worcester.

Ironically, the State Police are already asking for overtime shifts to be filled for this weekend&#;s Head of the Charles Regatta.

The administration has said it “does not anticipate any significant staffing shortages in the immediate future,” in a statement provided to the Herald.

Roughly 95% of the 42, executive-branch employees — including 90% of State Police staff — are in compliance with the COVID vaccine mandate, Baker’s office has said. Less than 4% of branch employees have failed to submit vaccine status or exemption paperwork.

The new recruits, the Herald has been told, still need to ride with a veteran trooper to learn the ropes while on the job.

The recruits, the agency added, have already been drilled in &#;criminal law, patrol procedures, physical fitness, marksmanship, defensive tactics, ethics, de-escalation training, fair and impartial policing, emergency vehicle operation, water safety&#; and more.
