Imagine having to call Fitchburg home? What a scary thought...I live in Leominster...nyaa nyaa...the Burg is really coming apart at the seams in every way. Crazy drivers crashing into meters, policeman off duty, cars out of control. City government in shatters and so is the library and police department. Everyone is jealous of everyone else and oh, so much hatred....and the heroin...it's almost the entire economy of fitchburg, moving dope done by dopes....that's why they call it dope....

That's funny, someone from Leominster throwing stones. Talk to some of the guidance counselors at LHS, they'll let you know just how good the heroin problem is in beautiful Leominster.

Good job weeding out the former top brass, remember some people were born to be captains and some people were born to be janitors

Great job of cleaning house at FPD, long overdue.

The patrol officers have always worked hard despite the evil empire, now maybe more will be accomplished with new leadership.

Only sorry the 3 heads were not fired!

The one thing I'd question is why the city will let drug dealers get off, if they provide the city with all their drug earnings, instead of throwing the book at them.
Then again, the drug sales cash is Fitchburg's only means of revenue, so I'm sure that'll never be stopped.

Clark and Joseph show they understand the role of a city councilor.

Councilor West Fitchburg wants to be big man on campus, get over yourself.

The chief of Police runs the department councilor so SHUT your big mouth.

Sad state of affairs.Bergeron couldn't handle the day shift.Talked on his cell all day long,told stories and had difficulty telling the truth.Attended ghost meetings all the time.Ask dave Bishop about the jenkins hearings,that never got done and ask chris erban about the thirty thousand he stole from her,or the priest from cleghorn that he ripped off,Great Choice Chief you really did your homework on this promotion.Take a survey of all the officers and see what they really have to say about this.

The Chief now has a, lying, backstabbing, kiss ass to be his yes man. The purpose of an administrator is help manage the department.

With all due respect to Bergeron he should retire. Bergeron is incompetent and unfit for duty. He cant even handle the most basic tasks. On top of that, no one at the department respects him.

The chief made this appointment based on ass kissing ability, not on experience or ability. What a morale booster.

I hope for the Chief's sake that the council does not question Bergeron's character, because if they do he's in a load of trouble.

She also happens to be LouneysG/F,shes also up for felony charges so get it right.This goes much deeper the anyone knows.More at 11:00.
No, I think you need to get it right! The Chief's Secretary was not Louney's G/F. It's two totally different people we're talking about here. The G/F did for a while work there (didn't start out all cozy but through the years got real warm & snuggly) but has since been bumped out of her job (because of the other secretarial lay offs) & then one day she was back - Louney Tunes bumped a perfectly good candidate for the position he needed for the G/F (which has lasted all of what 3mos). For those of you that are all up in arms over the city car business you may be interested to know that this "civilian" woman was given a city "police" vehicle (yes with lights & sirens) to go about her business.

However, yes you are right Louney's G/F lost her job & it was just last week & yes it was because of her baby daddy drama.

P- your right on the money. He swindled, those people out of money. He has duped the Chief into thinking that he is some type of savior to the department.

He has gone his whole career screwing things up.

He is not a cop and has never done a stich of police work. The only reason some guys like him, or tolerate him. He lets them slide. For the guy working in the trenches it sets a bad example.

If your reading this and your a city councilor or citizen, ask an Officer at FPD what they think about the "Lier".

I can understand Kaddy wanting to suck up to his old buddies, but his present position would hopefully put him above that kind of fray. He should have kept quiet unless he had a "valid" reason to interject negativity.

Another one trying to look good and comes out looking self centered and stupid

I think Fitchburg should be happy Chief Demoura promoted from within. I knew Bob Demoura from the Lowell P.D. and he's an excellent officer. He hasn't fallen into the "Lowell Politics As Usual" and brought a Lowell cronie in for the job. Keep up the good work. As for Councilor Kaddy, let the Chief do the job he was hired to do. Just my opinion.
You are a D i l d o. Stay out of our business.

If DeMoura promotes Bergeron then the other 6 officers that were demoted should get their rank back. I would also like to know how he is going to do the job of the other Captains if he never did the job. Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. It still bothers me that DeMoura has never taken the steps to move here, to me he said what everyone wanted to hear during his interview.
Absolutely!

The Chief has been here for such a short period of time, and he chooses this guy. Hum... I guess the word around town has been correct,: There is one BS artist at the Station that soars above ALL, and he just made it pay off. I hope the new Deputy doesn't have signing privilidges with the Department Check Book. Maybe if the Chief asked around town about his golden child's personal and "Business" dealings he wouldn't be so quick to make him the face of law enforcement. I used to think new blood in these departments was good for the city, now I think it just makes it easier to brown nose to get what you want before the new blood gets a whif of your rotten baggage. I'm Just Sayin. Maybe Mr Kaddy should tell us all what he REALLY knows about the chief's new best buddy so we can ALL better understand his well justified reservations. Just a thought.
Maybe he is setting up one of our own as a scapegoat. He needs someone to take the fall for him when he's out of town in his cushy little (wrong)HOME.
