HPD Came to Coffee Haven to Meet Residents

November 16, 2013

November 16, 2013. Several of Holliston's Finest made themselves available to anyone who stopped by Coffee Haven with a question, comment or suggestion.

Starting at 9:00 AM, police officers offered coffee and spoke to residents until 11:00 AM.

At the start, Sergeant Craig Denman, above left, seated with Officer Matt Stone, were available along with Detective David Gatchell and Chief John Moore, right.

Resident Charles Collie, above left and below, came in to discuss ways to protect his home since it was broken into last year, after Detective Ciara Ryan joined the group.

Detective Gatchell told Collie that the best protection is neighbors watching after neighbors. He related the events of a recent robbery he investigated. A neighbor had seen a van parked in the driveway and watched as two men took items from the house and drove off with them in the van. The neighbor thought that the items were being removed in order to make it easier to work in the house. No vehicle make or license number and no description of the theives.

Auxilliary Officer Jeff Oteri, standing above in the white sweat shirt, stopped in as did Holliston's newest sergeant, Matt Waugh, above right. Most of the officers were off duty but made themselves available this morning.

Representative Carolyn Dykema, above left, met with police and residents including members of the rail trail who had just completed marking the trail in preparation for the final layer of stone to be applied next week. Pictured above are Ken Henderson speaking to Carolyn and Herb Brockert standing next to Robert Weidknecht, far right. Martha Ellis also worked on the trail this morning.
