April 23, 2019

If we have a few more weeks like last week and the one before, then ten officers will be reassigned to the Animal Control Office.

Road sign of the times:

April 14, 2019:

00:36AM, Erratic driver earns a summons, 702 Washington; Marcos Desousamartinslima of Framingham. A licensed driver was called to take all five in the car home.

Animal incident, 67 Jeffrey; meduim-sized Beagle reported on the loose. Owner contacted.

K 9 training, Boynton.

April 15:

Animal incident, 370 Hollis; small terrier on the loose. GOA.

Animal incident, Cross; report that two German Shepards bit a small dog on the rail trail. Owners described as "younger couple operating a tan SUV or hatchback."

B & E, Hanlon; report of break-in via the back door.

April 16:

Animal incident, 146 Holly; report of sick raccoon. GOA.

April 17:

Eleven traffic stops and one erratic driver reported. No loose dogs today.

April 18:

Walk-in complaint, HPD; resident alarmed over alarm bill.

Suspicious motor vehicle, Courtland; caller observed the same car around town over the previous few days taking pictures of houses. Person told officer that "he has been picking up scraps". (Oh, OK).

April 19:

Animal incident, Mellen; resident reports a lost pit bull dog named Savannah. Same dog reported lost fours days prior. ACO notified.

Animal incident, 81 Railroad; report of two dogs in a pickup truck and caller concerned about their welfare. HPD determined that the windows were opened enough and the dogs were not in danger (it is a good thing that the concerned citizen didn't open the door of that pickup truck).

K 9 training, Boynton.

Erratic driver issued a warning, Highland; grey sedan with RI plates crossing the center line and speeding up and slowing down. Operator checked OK - unfamiliar with the area (have to remember that one).

April 20:

K 9 training, 79 Lowland.

10:19 PM, Temi; caller asked for a check of the area for someone walking around the house. Other than HPD no signs of anyone walking around the house.

During the reporting period, 24 citations and 35 warnings were issued. Four erratic drivers were reported.

Raccoon's need betters maners. then to get sick and run off before help comes

How can a dog lover not train there dogs not to go out whith out a leash. That is one law not to be broken IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR DOG. TRAINING WORKS!!!
