Maynard Police Department Hosts Successful Summer Youth Academy

MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois is pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department hosted another successful Youth Police Academy this week.

The third annual summer academy took place from July 16-20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Each of the 18 participants — referred to as cadets — received a uniform which included a hat, shirt and water bottle, as the program included physical training every day.

Throughout the week, cadets learned about various aspects of law enforcement, including firearm safety and defensive tactics, criminal law and procedure, investigations and narcotics, CPR and first aid, as well as 911 dispatch procedures.

Additionally, the NEMLEC SWAT and K-9 units gave demonstrations, Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan spoke with the group, and cadets visited the Massachusetts State Police Mounted Unit facility in Acton.

“Our youth academy has grown over the years and continues to be successful thanks to the hard work of our officers,” Chief Dubois said. “It is so great to see the youth of our community have positive interactions with our department at such a young age and to learn about the ins and outs of police work in a fun way.”

In instances like this, every second counts,” Chief Solomon said. “Receiving letters like this one is always a great part of the job. It was great to hear back from this resident and I am glad he is feeling better.”

Rowley Police Arrest Man after Child Pornography Investigation 

ROWLEY — Chief Scott A. Dumas reports that after an aggressive and thorough investigation, the Rowley Police Department arrested a man today who allegedly viewed, possessed and distributed child pornography.

DARRYL MOORE, AGE 37, OF LYNN AND ROWLEY was arrested and charged with Possession of Child Pornography and Dissemination of Child Pornography.

Rowley Police opened an investigation after detectives received information from a state task force and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children indicating that child pornography distributed over the internet may have come from a computer in Rowley.

As the investigation unfolded, Rowley Police conducted a search warrant at MOORE’S Boxford Road residence earlier today, along with a search of his person at his place of employment in Danvers. He was then placed under arrest in Danvers.

Rowley Police received assistance from West Newbury Police, Georgetown Police, Newbury Police, Lynn Police and the Massachusetts State Police in conducting the investigation.

MOORE is being held on $100,000 cash bail at the Middleton House of Correction pending arraignment Wednesday at Newburyport District Court.

These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
