Methuen Police Chief Gives Ride-Alongs to Contest and Raffle Winners
METHUEN — Chief Joseph Solomon and the Methuen Police Department would like to congratulate the winner of the Department’s Open House Social Media Contest and the winner of a Silent Auction at the Marsh Grammar School’s Fall Festival, who both received a ride to school with Chief Solomon.
“These contests are such a great way for us to engage with our community on social media,” Chief Solomon said. “I love having the opportunity to interact with the kids and other residents and show them they should feel safe and comfortable around the police.”
Annamaria Getman, of Methuen, won the social media contest at the Methuen Police Department’s Open House on Oct. 10. Residents entered the contest by taking photos at the Open House and then posting them on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #Methuen, #MethuenPolice, and #ChiefSolomon.
Getman posted a photo of her son Cameron saluting the American Flag in the Methuen Police boat on Twitter. In addition to getting a ride to school from Chief Solomon in a police cruiser, Cameron also received a Methuen Police Department Challenge Coin.
Melissa Ansara-Burns, of Methuen, won a “Ride to School with the Chief” at the Silent Auction for her daughter Brooke during the Marsh Grammar School’s Fall Festival. Chief Solomon picked Brooke up at her house and drove her to school, also awarding her with a Methuen Police Challenge Coin.
Both contest winners want to be police officers when they grow up.
