State House Honorees 2017

Governor Charlie Baker honored Massachusetts State Police Troopers Merrick and Cain, along with our Somerville Police detectives Kilsarys Leguisamon and Derrick Dottin yesterday.  After an around-the-clock manhunt for fugitive James Morales in January, the escapee was finally captured in the Somerville/Cambridge area. Both Somerville Detectives were on their way to a funeral when they saw James Morales walk by their car. Both detectives quickly called into dispatch to check the descriptions for the fugitive Morales. State Trooper Merrick who had been in his cruiser also spotted Morales, jumped out of his cruiser and proceed on foot in pursuit of the fugitive. On Monday, Governor C. Baker publicly recognized these officers bravery and honored them for their work in apprehending the fugitive.  Congratulations!

Visiting ELL D

This season our Deputy Chief Stephen Carrabino's visit to ELL D sparks new insights and perspectives about law enforcement from students. ELL D students describe their initial reaction to Deputy Carrabino's visit and how their feelings towards police have now changed. Over the past summer, the Somerville Police Department has been working more closely with community groups to change the negative views around law enforcement and establish positive encounters within the community.
