Tri-County Metal Fabrication Students Build Battering Rams for the Massachusetts State Police

When a hostile situation occurs, speed of entry may be the most important aspect to gain control and ensure optimal safety. Tactical entry equipment, also known as Battering Rams, allow police to quickly gain access to both criminals and to victims during rescue operations. Yesterday, the Massachusetts State Police Special Operations - STOP Team received thirteen one-man Battering Rams designed and fabricated by students in the Metal Fabrication career program at Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School.

The initial project was to design a lighter and smaller Battering Ram that could be used by a single police officer and could be easily transferred via a police vehicle. Under the direction of Robert Pierangeli, Tri-County Metal Fabrication Instructor, students Robert Corcoran, a senior from North Attleboro and two juniors, Trevor Walsh of Plainville and Bruce Farrand of Wrentham, were asked to work on the project as they are American Welding Society (AWS) Certified Welders.

“We are pleased to have partnered with the Massachusetts State Police to design and fabricate the Battering Rams,” said Cathie Rebelo, Director of Vocational Programs. “This project has given our metal fabrication students valuable hands-on experience in reinforcing their existing skills while working with new technology with the added value of helping the community.”

The students began the project by making an initial prototype according to the specifications and measurements provided. Once it was finished, they sent photos to their contact at the Massachusetts State Police for feedback. Updated specifications were sent back to the students who then made it to the dimensions required including adding special hand guards. 

The students used a CNC Plasma Cutter to cut the half-inch steel plates for the face of the Ram and quarter-inch steel plates for the back of the Ram to seal it off. They had to cut out the hand guards to match the type of handles that were needed. Then they tack welded the prototype. Once approved, the students moved forward with producing the Battering Rams.

“The Tri-County School District would like to thank the Massachusetts State Police for providing our students with such a rich and innovative project,” said Stephen Dockray, Superintendent-Director. “We continue to look for opportunities from our state and municipal agencies that will give students the valuable real-world experience in their curriculum.”

Tri-County RVTHS, located at 147 Pond Street in Franklin, is a recipient of the High Schools That Work Gold Achievement Award and serves the communities of Franklin, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, North Attleboro, Plainville, Seekonk, Sherborn, Walpole, and Wrentham.

"citizens of Massachusetts depend on state and federal agencies to work together"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"Massachusetts State Police, US Coast Guard, local police and fire departments, federal public safety officials, private sector partners such as Gillette Stadium and Boston Harbor Cruises, the Massachusetts National Guard and representatives from other states prepare for a training exercise that will test the procedures and processes of these agencies by stressing them with large scale disaster and domestic threat scenarios. 
To keep the integrity of the scenarios for the first responders and those involved in the exercise, the times, locations and type of disaster or threat have not been disclosed to the public. The responders will need to react as they would in a real-life situation - with no prior notice. 
“This type of stress test is what we need to be prepared to support government and private entities during a real world disaster,” said Col. Margaret C. White, the director of military support for the Massachusetts National Guard, in a press release. “I am confident that this exercise will make us collectively stronger, more focused and more effective than ever before.” 
The National Guard said there will be five training locations statewide."

Franklin Saving Lives During "Click It or Ticket"

The Franklin Police Department, in partnership with the Highway Safety Division of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, the Massachusetts State Police, and more than 200 Massachusetts police departments, will take part in the national Click It or Ticket campaign between May 9th and May 23rd. This high-visibility enforcement campaign will promote seat belt use through increased traffic enforcement. The campaign is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

“Our goal is to save lives,” said Deputy Chief Thomas Lynch. “As we kick-off the busy summer driving season, it is crucial that all motorists buckle up every time they go out, day and night – no excuses. Our officers are prepared to ticket anyone who is not wearing their seat belt, including drivers who have neglected to properly buckle their children.”

The national seat belt usage rate is 88.5% (NHTSA). Massachusetts is falling behind at 74%, with a 3% reduction in usage rate between 2014 and 2015.

In Massachusetts, many fatally injured occupants are unbuckled. According to NHTSA, in 2014, nearly half of the 21,022 passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes across the country were unrestrained.

“While these may just sound like statistics, local police know from personal experience that those numbers represent mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and friends in Franklin,” said Jeff Larason, Director of the Highway Safety Division. “If we increase our seat belt usage rate, we save lives, and that’s why the police are out enforcing this important law.”

As part of the Click It or Ticket mobilization, at 6:00 pm on May 23rd, state and local police departments including Franklin will join law enforcement agencies across the East Coast in mobilizing the “Border to Border” Operation. This initiative provides increased seat belt enforcement at state borders, sending a ‘zero tolerance’ message to the public: driving or riding unbuckled will result in a ticket, no matter what state, no matter what time.
