"SAFETYNET" PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT
The Norwell Police Department is pleased to announce that we have received $5,000 in grant funding from the Edwin Phillips Foundation, a charitable trust whose focus is on the needs of mentally and physically handicapped children. The grant funds are available to aid children and adults up to the age of 22.
The Norwell Police Department will use the funds to assist families who have a child or young adult with a cognitive or developmental disability by providing the SafetyNet program for families that cannot afford the monthly fees and equipment maintenance associated with the program. The LoJack SafetyNet program is technology that uses specialized radio frequency search and rescue equipment to assist law enforcement in helping to locate a person who has wandered. The equipment detects radio frequency signals that are emitted from a bracelet worn by an individual enrolled in the SafetyNet service.
If we can be of any assistance to a family, or if you would like more information about our program, please contact Detective William Pasteris or Deputy Chief Carol Brzuszek at (781) 659-7979.
Norwell Police Department’s participation in The Designated Driver Program
The Norwell Police Department is pleased to announce our participation in The Designated Driver Program. This program is a cooperative effort between the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office, local Police Departments, and licensed alcohol servers across Plymouth County. It is a cooperative effort aimed at reducing the number of impaired drivers on the road.
Participation is voluntary and controlled by the private business. Each business agrees to provide free non-alcoholic beverages to patrons who identify themselves as the designated driver to their server. The Designated Driver agrees not to drink any alcoholic beverages during their evening out. The Designated Driver accepts the responsibility to ensure the other members in their party are transported home safely.
We would like to acknowledge the efforts of Sgt. Timothy O’Brien who coordinated this program with the area businesses. Sgt. O’Brien reached out to all businesses in Norwell who are licensed alcohol servers. The following are the participating establishments: The Fours, Not Your Average Joes, Strawberry Fair, Tinker’s Son, Trattoria San Pietro, McGreal’s Tavern, and Beijing House.
Congratulations To Our Participating Norwell Restaurants That Support Our Designated Driver Program
