“Community Crime Fighters”

 

In two recent cases being investigated by the Detective Division of the Holliston Police Department keen observations and the timely actions of citizens have led to the crucial links that were needed to charge the appropriate offenders. 

In early May of this year a house was broken into and valuable items were taken. At the time of the crime a resident noticed suspicious activity in the general vicinity of that house and reported it to Fire Chief Michael Cassidy. Chief Cassidy then passed this information on to our department. This became the lead that ultimately led our detective unit to those we feel are responsible, and the filing of criminal charges. 

In June of this year a business on Washington Street became the victim of an offender that stole numerous items from their property. Video cameras installed by the owner proved to be the key piece of evidence that led to an identification of the suspect by one of our officers, and a follow up investigation by our detective unit resulting in the recovery of the stolen items and the filing of a criminal complaint. 

Police Officers today have many tools and their own experience and expertise that aid them in carrying out their law enforcement function. But even with these advantages they can always use the information of those that observe what took place, suspect what might have taken place, or make available what did take place. 

We extend a sincere thanks to those that did get involved, and going forward we encourage people to report what appears unusual or suspicious. If you see something, say something. Together, law enforcement and those they protect can work together to make the community safer for all.
