Franklin Police provide good reminder to lock your cars at night!

"If you’re debating on whether you should lock your car tonight please reference this flow chart…

Last night we had a few cars gone through throughout town and officers recovered a stolen vehicle from a nearby community. It’s typical for stolen vehicles to be used in these crimes. 
So…if you don’t want your vehicle being used to steal someone else’s belongings…lock your car!"

Spring ahead!! And lock your car(s)

"Here’s your friendly reminder to lock your cars. When you turn in for the night…lock your cars. 
When you run into a store…lock your cars. 
When your car is parked in your driveway or your neighborhood and you think, my car will never be broken into…lock your cars. 
When your car is unattended for any amount of time…lock your cars.

Communities across Massachusetts are experiencing larcenies from motor vehicles believed to be conducted by the “Felony Lane Gang.” Their MO is simple. They check for unlocked and unattended cars, IDs, purses, debit cards, and checkbooks. 
They’ll then try to cash or withdraw large amounts of money from these accounts. 
Prevent yourself from being their next victim by…locking your cars."

Franklin Police Dept shares this important scam alert

"SCAM ALERT (picture of Frankie and Ben to grab your attention) 
Special attention to early to mid-20-year-olds. Parents, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share this with your adult children 
The FPD has seen an increase in a particular scam involving the Snapchat App and Instagram. Users (typically male) are being friended by random users of the apps (typically females), and strike up a conversation with the users. 
After some time the scammer will engage in explicit conversation and send explicit photographs of themselves through the app. In return, they ask for explicit photographs back. 
Once they have these photographs they blackmail the user into sending them money via a payment app (typically in the hundredths of dollars) or else they will send the victim's pictures to their social media friends or contact list. 
The scammer WILL send these pictures out if they don’t get their money. When these incidents occur they are investigated by the FPD. It’s our goal to prevent these scams from occurring in the first place.  
If you find yourself in this situation and think it might be a scam… IT’S A SCAM!"

She will also be trained as a “friendly find” search dog to assist with searches for missing people.

Upon completion of her training, she will participate in an intensive field training program with Ben and the rest of the FPD Community Services Unit. Once all of  her training is completed, she will be ready to meet the public while serving the students and residents of Franklin.

For now, she has been getting to know her surroundings and meeting all of her new co-workers who are ecstatic to have a new member of the team. Frankie is thrilled for the opportunity to work with Ben and Officer Gove.

Ben Franklin Is excited to train and work with Frankie. He has already started to show her the ropes and they bonded immediately. He is excited to share some of the workload and to work with Frankie.

We are looking forward to having two highly trained therapy dogs here in the
Department/community to serve the public.

Did you read the SAFE Coalition message on e-cigarettes?

"E-cigarettes are devices that heat a liquid into an aerosol that the user inhales. The liquid usually has nicotine and flavoring in it, and other additives. The nicotine in e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes is addictive. E-cigarettes are considered tobacco products because most of them contain nicotine, which comes from tobacco.

Besides nicotine, e-cigarettes can contain harmful and potentially harmful ingredients, including: ultrafine particles that can be inhaled deep into the lungs; flavorants such as diacetyl, a chemical linked to serious lung disease; volatile compounds; heavy metals, such as nickel, tin, and lead.

Adolescent years are times of important brain development. Brain development begins during the growth of the fetus in the womb and continues through childhood and to about age 25. Nicotine exposure during adolescence and young adulthood can cause addiction and harm the developing brain.

E-cigarettes are very popular with young people. Their use has grown dramatically in the last five years. Today, more high school students use e-cigarettes than regular cigarettes. The use of e-cigarettes is higher among high school students than adults.

No matter how it’s delivered, nicotine is harmful for youth and young adults. E-cigarettes typically contain nicotine as well as other chemicals that are known to damage health. For example, users risk exposing their respiratory systems to potentially harmful chemicals in e-cigarettes. Read about these and other risks young people face if they use e-cigarettes."

Franklin Police gym makeover helps with fitness efforts

"The year was 1991. The Franklin Police Department was dedicated and with it came a state-of-the-art gym. As the years passed many components of the gym were frozen in time. More time passed and we realized that the gym equipment was probably older than most of our newer officers.

This fall the FPD started making a push in addressing a major factor in officer wellness, physical fitness. As they say, out with the old and in with the new. The gym was given a facelift and outfitted with new modern gym equipment that allows officers to have a great workout in a short time if needed. 
We replaced old equipment with box jumps, new flooring, kettlebells, an assault bike, a rower, new bumper plates, and bars, with more equipment to come. In addition to the equipment, we’ve also implemented a new officer fitness policy and a new officer-run workout
program for the entire department. 
A big thank you to Chief Lynch, Sgt. Bob MacQuarrie, Officer Eric Cusson, Officer Andressa Rosa, and everyone"

Good things take time...

"What dream of yours are you nurturing right now? 🌷

Making quick progress or getting fast results certainly sounds nice, and in our fast-paced world, it can seem like things must be completed in an instant.

But taking things step by step and making progress daily is what generates real results. So if a goal seems too large right now, the thing to do isn’t to speed up.

👉🏽Instead, embrace the power of slow and work towards your finish line with patience and discipline. Let all the good things you’ve been chasing come and catch you, and remember that no matter how small your efforts may feel, things will come together sooner than later."

Bernheart family thank Franklin Police/Franklin Fire for emergency response

"On 12/31/2021 around 10 pm, Officer Kal Koblick, Officer Jon Giron, and Sergeant Mike Colecchi responded to a residential address for an unresponsive man who was not breathing. The man was David Bernheart. While responding to the call, dispatchers from the Metacomet Emergency Communications Center provided CPR instructions via the phone to David’s family.

Once on scene, Sergeant Colecchi began chest compressions while Officer Koblick set up the AED. David was administered a successful shock with the AED and the team of Sgt. Colecchi, Officer Koblick, and Officer Giron continued chest compressions and rescue breaths. The Franklin Fire Department arrived and began their advanced life-saving skills and transported David to the hospital. Later at the hospital, David began breathing on his own and made a recovery weeks later. He was able to return home to his family.

Yesterday, the Bernheart family met with each of the officers from that night and expressed their gratitude. Medical calls like this involve a great deal of privacy and are not often publicized but the Bernhearts were insistent on sharing their story and the amazing life-saving work done by the FPD and the FFD. This is just one example of the GREAT work performed by the FPD and the FFD. Great work that is performed 24/7 365.

Pictured below are Officer Kal Koblick, the Bernheart family, Officer Jon Giron, and Sgt. Mike Colecchi. Great job guys and thank you to the Bernheart family for letting us share their story."
