OK, I know this forum is dedicated to talking trash about everyone and everything but I want to know if any of you have had similar expierences with Massena Police Department.

A while back, while shopping in the Harte Haven Plaze, someone(s) broke the antenna off my vehicle. Granted, my vehicle is older but in good shape and it does not give anyone the right to damage my belongings. Becuase I had to get my child off the bus, I drove home and called the State Police. The guy that answered said that although he would like to help, it occurred in the village and they would need to investigate it. No big deal, I understand.

So I called the PD and the guy that answered listened to what happened. After we talked he started to take down my information and as soon as I told him where I lived (Brasher Center area), he told me becuase I live outside the village that it would be hard to investigate and that they would simply "take a report for insurance purposes".

Are you kidding me????? Just becuase I live outside the village, the police are not going to help me. I took it upon myself to check businesses for security cameras and they all told me that I would have to have the police do it for me.

Being absolutely pissed off, I search Massena PD on topix and some other complaints sound quite similar. This PD needs a serious change or a possible study to dissolve them. Anytime I have needed the police (less than three for theft complaints) the sheriffs and state polce have always been good. They may not have found the person, but they took their time and put effort into it.

Anyone else with similar issues?

You left the scene and then called the cops. How can you prove it was done there when you removed evidence and called from the comfort of your home? Be real. You really expect them to comb security cameras to find out who broke your 25 dollar antenna? Then trash them on here? Come on now.. If it was that important to you, you should have had an officer look at it before you drove off. Removing evidence from the scene makes it hearsay.

If they told you they would have to have the police do it for you then tell the police to do it for you. They are getting paid to do it. Go down to the station and explain what the stores told you in person. It's too easy to blow a person off on the telephone. I hope you get some satisfaction and the person who did it is caught. Have a good rest of the day!

What are they there to do if not investigate a crime? Granted, it is a petty one, but a quick check of the camera and a few interviews, and if they didn't have a lead, close it. On the other hand, they did a great job on the vandals last week. Obviously different officers must have been working. Great job!

Ok folks...why don't you just ask Walmart security how many times a day someone from Massena pd comes in to view the camera's. They will tell you...TOO MANY! Then ask them how many times a week people say they had a hit and run in the parking lot only to have security go thru the "couple minutes" (that ends up taking our security an hour because the stated 15 minutes turns into 45)of video footage to find out, low and behold....nobody even came close to the damaged vehicle. Hmmmm do I suspect insurance fraud? Well, when the questions start happening, all of a sudden....the person that swears the damage happened at Walmart because that was the only possible place it could have happened...they come out with the forgotten fact that they just came from the mall or ALDIs!! So just because someone notices damage at that certain time does not mean it absolutely had to happen right then. So it's not only the officers time this is wasting but also the people that have to sift thru the several hours of video footage. All for a $25 antenna that probably was broken off in the car wash to begin with!

LIKE I said earlier this would just turn into a bash fest. They ARE NOT at sunoco 24/7. So quit exaggerating. They might stop in for a drink or a snack. You go and work 12 hours without eating or drinking! What....they can't stop for a drink? Get over yourself. I stand behind the MPD. I think they do a great job. They never get enough credit for what they do. Its a thankless job!!!!! You people are all cop bashers. It so sad. This community should stand behind them. Instead you come on her nameless spouting off. Put your name on here!
To all the GREAT officers THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR THIS COMMUNITY!!!!!! These crazy people who bash are just jealous they pump gas for a living.

Yes the Massena Police are incompetent and useless, My car got keyed in 08, still waitin for them to come fill out the report, my car got rear ended, the other driver knew the officer who came so i got a ticket for unsafe stopping.

Massena police don't do anything unless its indiscrimanatly harrassing their neighbors to the east.
