Traffic enforcement grant “drive sober or get pulled over”

Tyngsborough Police Department Receives Traffic Enforcement Grant For “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” Campaign

TYNGSBOROUGH — The Tyngsborough Police Department is increasing patrols throughout town to prevent drunk driving fatalities this holiday season as part of the National “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.

The initiative is funded through a grant from the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s Highway Safety Division and runs through Jan.2.

Tyngsborough Police will have extra patrols on the lookout for impaired and reckless driving. Residents are reminded to never get behind the wheel if they have been drinking and to never get into a vehicle if the driver is impaired.

Be safe and be smart. Don’t drink and drive, if you are planning to attend any parties or meeting with family and friends over the holidays, have a designated sober driver or find alternative means to get to and from your destination.

The National Center for Statistics and Analysis of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2014 in Massachusetts, 133 people were killed in crashes that involved drivers with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher.

If you are charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, you will lose your license and could face jail time, along with incurring the cost of additional fines and expenses.

The Tyngsborough Police Department is one of 202 local law enforcement agencies running extra patrols through the New Year as part of the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over mobilization.

message from school superintendent Ciampa

Good Morning,

Please be advised that I have been in contact with Tyngsborough Police Chief Howe regarding the school threat in Nashua.  We spoke last night about the situation and again this morning. The threat in Nashua was a specific threat towards their high schools. I appreciate the concern that we all share as a community, however, the Tyngsborough Public Schools will operate uninterrupted today and going forward.
Should the need arise to modify our operations or programming, I will be in immediate contact with you.

We are fortunate to have an outstanding partnership with our local police department and I will be speaking with Chief Howe throughout the day for updates on the situation.  The rise of social media has increased access and information about this issue. I am aware of the concerns that exist in our community, and I want to assure you that we are monitoring the situation.  Thank you for your understanding and support.

Sincerely,

Don Ciampa

Threats at Nashua schools

The Tyngsborough police and schools have received numerous calls from concerned parents regarding the threats at Nashua Public schools which resulted in Nashua closing their schools for the day.  The threats were specific to Nashua, however we will continue our vigilance with our close working relationship with all Tyngsborough Schools.  I spoke with Superintendent Ciampa on Sunday and again this morning, the Tyngsborough Police Department is already active in the schools and will remain so.  There will also be an additional presence of our officers for the remainder of the week at the schools and we will continue to work closely with school administration.

 

Chief Richard Howe
