National Public Safety Telecommunicators week, April 9-15

In honor of it being National Public Safety Telecommunicators week we want to thank our dispatchers for the work they do every day to keep our community and police officers safe.  Our dispatchers do much more than just answer business line calls & 911;  They dispatch fire, police, ambulance, paramedics and coordinate med-flight when requested.  They assist thousands of people each year who come into the station for everything from seeking directions, requesting forms or needing police assistance.   A critical and stressful part of their job is performing Emergency Medical Dispatch when someone calls with a life threatening medical emergency such as a person choking.  We appreciate what you do, thank you!

Press release; Charges to be filed against student for drug distribution

Police Chief Richard D. Howe reports that the Tyngsborough Police Department will summons a student at the Greater Lowell Technical High School after he was found to be allegedly selling desserts laced with marijuana to other students at the school.

The suspect, a JUVENILE MALE, AGE 16, OF DRACUT will appear in Middlesex County Juvenile Court-Lowell at a later date, charged with:

• Distribution of a Class D Substance

• Juvenile in Possession of a Class D Substance (Citation)

Police were notified by administrators at Greater Lowell Technical High School that a student was found be allegedly selling marijuana-laced brownies to other students. Police initiated an investigation, which led to the 16-year-old suspect being charged.

Tyngsborough Police Department School Resource Sgt. Steve Manning worked closely with Greater Lowell Superintendent/Director Roger Bourgeois and school faculty in the investigation. 

“Marijuana is not legal for children to buy, possess, or sell, and the Tyngsborough Police Department will not tolerate its presence or distribution in our schools,” Chief Howe said. “The town of Tyngsborough is home to four secondary schools, and we are proud of the strong teamwork and collaboration that exists among our organizations. The safety, security, and welfare of our students is our first priority at all times.”
