Fitchburg Police Chief Robert DeMoura and the entire Fitchburg Police Department should be commended for the strides they have made to reduce violent crime in the city.

Front and center when considering the livability of a city is whether its streets are safe, and while DeMoura and his police force will be the first to admit that their work is far from over, their efforts have made a difference.

Although the number of murders or non-negligent manslaughters doubled from one to two from 2010 to 2011, there has been a 17 percent decline in homicides from the average of the last five years, according to the 2011 annual report released by the department late last month. Incidences of rape declined 29 percent from 2010 to 2011, and by 37 percent from the five-year average. There was a 52 percent decrease in statutory rapes. Aggravated assaults were down by 2 percent year over year, and robberies were down 19 percent.

There is no quick fix to reducing crime in any community. Often it takes a multifaceted strategy, and so the city has attacked the problem on several fronts:

* DeMoura hailed the partnerships the force has developed with the Massachusetts State Police Gang Unit and the North Worcester County Drug Task Force.

* Stepped up license enforcement and patrols at businesses that serve alcohol has led to a drop in barroom violence, police say.

* Traffic citations increased by nearly 44 percent from 2010 to 2011. Traffic Specialist Paul

McNamara says traffic enforcement has targeted historically high-crime areas. "When we stop these cars, we're getting the drugs, the guns and getting unlicensed and uninsured drivers off the road," McNamara told us. Police cars are also being stationed at intersections where accidents occur most often, to help prevent people from speeding through them.
* Police are encouraging residents to report suspicious activity in their neighborhoods, and to participate in or start neighborhood crime watches. Residents shouldn't put up with crime in their neighborhoods, and the first three steps are report, report and report.

The crime picture isn't completely rosy. DeMoura and his officers are frustrated with a 17 percent rise in domestic violence cases from the five-year average, and a dramatic increase in the number of larcenies (up 31 percent from 2010 to 2011) and incidences of shoplifting (up 91 percent).

These crimes are especially pernicious. Domestic violence not only injures its direct victims -- wives, girlfriends, husbands and boyfriends -- it often affects children, who carry emotional scars with them to their school settings and later in their own relationships. In the case of break-ins, victims must cope not only with financial loss but the feeling that their personal space has been violated. They no longer feel safe in their own homes. The spike in both crimes can be attributed in part to the lagging economy. North Central Massachusetts' climb from the Great Recession has been longer and steeper than most other areas of the state. Again, as with other crimes, extra vigilance is needed. Abused partners must not be afraid to escape the cycle of domestic violence. Homeowners and tenants must take action to better secure their homes and vehicles, and to report suspicious activity.

A police department's work is never done, but Chief DeMoura and all of the the men and women in blue in the Fitchburg Police Department should take pride in the fact they are getting real results, and making the city a better place in which to live.

I feel that the FPD has done a much better job all around. I encourage all Fitchburg citizens to get involved with this department to assist them in investigations.

We must all work on building a better and safer Fitchburg. There is a lot to be proud of in Fitchburg.

I have always said it and I will say it again; there are many great people within Fitchburg. Times are tough for everyone in one way or another. We must all assist the FPD efforts and other positive efforts being made by others in Fitchburg.

I pray for the safety of all FPD members. I encourage all citizens to assist the FPD especially when these officers safety is in jeopardy. Be proactive as a better and safer Fitchburg is in all of our interests.

There is a lot to address within Fitchburg as crack cocaine has begun an insurgence bigger than any other time in Fitchburg.

What are you talking about? You have issues. You really believe that you are a good person? You truly believe that you are not a criminal?

When karma comes to collect from you tell them that it is the governments job as they allowed you to commit crimes. Hey, it may be a legit argument as Whitey is trying out a similar defense.

You are the loser!

Lynch,... 2 years back you were commending the fitchburg police dept. now in the Charlie Baker for governor thread post #14 your accusing the Fitchburg Police dept of being corrupt
quote",.."The word on the street is that there is a fued brewing that has already brought about gun shots. I am hearing that it is a clash between a cop who oversees most of Fitchburgs drug trade and a certain supplier who is actually a son of a Leominister cop. If true then I beleive that this situation will trump all other corruption within the FPD"

A common trait among jailbirds, felons and career criminals is the inability to tell or understand the truth. Lynch, like any pathological liar, can't keep track of all his lies and so after a while he actually believes them. If you read his stuff, he's a perfect sociopath, refusing to accept any responsibility for any of his crimes or anti-social actions (i.e., the death of Andrew McDonough, his road rage incident). Or blames everything on a delusional political conspiracy against him (The Lynch North Street Riot, his banishment from the college, et cetera.). Quite extraordinary. And completely nuts.

Jeff who? There are very good police within the FPD. Unfortunately there are straight out criminals within the FPD as well. The FBI had to give the fpd a tip that there lt was working with drug king pins in Fitchburg. Ask the chief if anyone told him of the certain drug dealing and drug dealing collaborating fpd members before the FBI told demoura about the situation. But you will show a blind eye to it because you are a very scared ass kisser in this city. Grow some and stand up for what is right.

Lynch your vison your insight amazes me, good idea I'll go over and talk to the Police chief, and He'll think I'm as kookoo as you, sorry Lynch but I agree with Sigmund Freud's analyisis of you. You may find of interest Sigmund freud's ego and super ego theories interesting as well as Freud's theories and analyisis of Defense mechanism's, Maybe just Maybe Lynch you can understand your behaviors.

But I doubt it , your in lifelong denial,...

but it was worth a try.

So you are a beleiver in the theories of Sigmund freuds? Apply your argument to a criminal cop and one who defends the criminal cop. Now that is what Freud is exploring in his theories. Corruption is usually comitted by an example of freuds studies. And then even further proven when FSU ego typical Gods are friends of corrupt officials. It is a vicous cycle. And to your surprise you need to get out more often away from your little isolated ego typical world and join in the conversation with the majority of Fitchburg. The three amigos being FSU, FPD AND THE Sentinel, each covering for the other .

Drugs, gangs, corruption, poor management, nepotism,anti business ,ego and power trip is what is ailing Fitchburg. This year we have seen a blood bath at KCs pub, we have more reports of gunfire, there is an increase in home invasions and ghetto participation. What business or family would want to move into Fotchburg? But as 84% of registered voters refuse to vote anymore, 50% of the 16% is still voting who they were coached by in highschool and for the same old. In order to rid Fitchburg of corruption, in order for our elders to be respected instead of gouged with high cost of services, fees and high taxes we need to stand up and vote. What happened concerning Market Basket is a great example what can be done when community stands up for what is right.

How about the bloodbath in front of 113 L Street in South Boston on the night of July 13th 1992? The one in which you and your thug friends kicked, stabbed and beat a man, causing his death? Where a golf club was used as a weapon?

You have no business being critical of any person or institution. You have been a plague on society and your criminal record has more pages than War and Peace. No one will ever take you seriously because they know you're a crank.

You're such an idiot. Just because you hate cops and have been blathering this crap incessantly you automatically conclude that Freud must have hated the police of the Hapsburg Empire?

And no one is fooled by your criminal cop references. In your twisted world any cop who has arrested you (and there are dozens), any DA who has prosecuted you, any judge who has sentenced you and any sheriff or warden who has incarcerated you is a criminal.

But the thing is that you had opportunities to prove your case in each instance. And every time the state was right and you were wrong. Your arrests, jail time , losing your license, these things were all your fault. There were no criminal cops, no conspiracies. Just you. That's what happens when you spend most of your life acting like a jerk. Get over it.

Jeff unlike you and a hand full of others out here who also hide their identity, i am not a coward. If you have something to say to another person and it is negative then you should stand by such accusations. Jeff it is you who have thrown out the name frued and attempted to misalign his theories on human behavior. I studied phycology which is NOT a.science. if you really knew me then you would know that i am the opposite of what you attempt to label me.

Sorry, but your post is far too coherent and free of spelling and grammatical errors for it to have been created by Lynch the Loon.

Nice try but here's some advice. Next time, dumb it up. A lot.

I agree 100% as it is obvious that you have allot to lose if exposed.lol. Cowards. I never held a weapon. You just continue to place a bat and or a golf club into my hand. You continue to imply that I am violent which I am not.
You have absolutely no clue concerning what type of person I am. Everyone around states that I need to get mad at people as they all state that I am too passive.

But you will continue to lie. I fight with a pen as I will file ethics violation, criminal complaints and civil action against people such as.you. and if i am right to who you may be you already know this to be fact.
Abusing the judicial system and your authoriry is all you have as without your ability to abuse your authority you have nothing. You are a dishonest person and you know it. You have no integrity.
