National Night Out 2017

National Night Out 

August 1, 2017, Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, The Somerville Police Department and Somerville Cares About Prevention hosted Somerville’s 14th Annual National Night Out. This national event brings together community-police awareness against crime in the United States. Held every first Tuesday of August, cities across the country host this event and invite community programs for drug prevention, mental health, and other support groups to participate and raise awareness for individuals in their community. Live music, poetry performances, and safety demonstrations from Police, Fire, and Ambulatory services are just some of the activities held at the event. The Somerville Police would like to thank all the participants and sponsors of the event who helped make the National Night Out event in Somerville, MA such a success. We hope to see more people and performers next year!

Massachusetts Elder Protective Services Hotline

eahotline

Beginning July 1st, 2017 the Executive Office of Elder Affairs will centralize the Elder Protective Services abuse reporting system (elder abuse hotline) to a single phone number.

The 24/7 single phone number will simplify the process for elder abuse reporting. All calls (day or night, 7 days a week) will go directly to the Massachusetts-based call center at 1-800-922-2275, regardless of the location of the reporter or the elder.

While the initial report intake will be centralized, all reports will continue to be referred to and handled by local Protective Services Agencies for screening, investigation, and service planning.

To report suspected elder abuse, please call the statewide 24-hour hotline at 1-800-922-2275.

 

Click It or Ticket Campaign 2017

clickitcampaignSomerville, MA,      – Somerville Police have joined the 2017 Click It or Ticket Campaign and will begin enforcing seat belt use as part of the national awareness to spread the importance of buckling up. The SPD aims to mobilize specific traffic units to increase the maximum visibility of seat belt enforcement in the Somerville area. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there is at least 1 fatality as a result of a crash every 15 minutes. In Massachusetts, the NHTSA conducted a study that showed that the belt use rate is at 74.1% the second lowest rate nationwide to that of South Dakota at 73.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that nearly half of the 22,441 passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2015 were unrestrained. At night, between the hours of 6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m., that number soared to 57 percent of those killed.

That’s why one focus of the Click It or Ticket campaign is nighttime enforcement. For this reason, the Somerville Police and other police departments nationwide will join together to crack down on seat belt violations. We also ask our residents to encourage others to use their seat belts. Please, help the Somerville Police Dept. spread this life-saving message before one more friend or family member is killed as a result of this senseless inaction. Seat belts save lives, and everyone—child and adult—needs to remember to buckle up every time. The Somerville Police Department will continue to enforce this law and count on community support for driver safety because “in real life, you don’t get a second chance.”
