for the fitchburg police and CITY HALL to label you when you come forth to report crimes. Many of victims and concerned citizens have been turned away from both City Hall and The Police Station to report serious Public safety issues,only to be LABELED! You see, the complaints that do not cast a good light on the department and or city hall will always be treated so! This is why the Fitchburg Alliance for Public Safety and Awareness was created. WE ARE the citizens who have reported crimes only to be turned away. WE ARE the Victims and business owners that called 911 and no officer responded to the emergency! We, like you, have personally gone to the police station only to be turned away. The CHIEF OF POLICE AND THE MAYOR are well aware of this fact, and have no compassion to do anything about this increasing problem. We were told with a laugh, by the Fitchburg's DA office, that we would not be the first to have said so, and would not be the last. Martha Cloakley's office is the same way,when it comes to bringing Police and City corruption to light. One of these days the State and City will have to answer to this lack of REAL PUBLIC SAFETY.

Shame on City Hall and Fitchburg Police Department and the Local Da's office, they would rather promote and support the Coalition to save Fitchburg's aggressive illegal tactics to rid the city of people they target, by the same aggressive means they want to stop. You will get city and Police support if you join the City Supported GANG at the Tatoo shop located across from City Hall. GO FIGURE!

wah wah wah I can't get my way soo everyone has to be corrupt. Why don't you give a specific incident where you called 911 and no one came. 911 calls are recorded thru the state get the facts and print them until then stop making false allegations. I am soo tired of people making blank allegations without any proof. This site has become an endless bitc$ session. You want real public safety hire more police to make up for the 25 or so officers this city has lost in the last few years.

Did NOT respond to a 911 call back on 9/24th of 2009. Which was reported and complaint filed. It should be on record if asked for at city hall. It was filed two weeks after. Also another business owner has filed a grivance with the city over the same situation,called 911 and no one showed up, the grivance is on record. You may come down and read the complaint and talk with the DOZENS of VICTIMS that the lack of Fitchburg's Public safety policies have produced. Our meetings are located at 238 Bemis Rd Fitchburg, and is opened to all who have fell victims to lack of public safety policies and or concerned businesses and or residents.

Thank you from the concerned Victims,Citizens and Business owners that make up the Fitchburg Alliance for public safety and awareness.

If you would like to see the written complaints,we as victims, do not have to prove a thing, just go city hall and ask for the complaints and the greivances about the 911 calls that were filed. It was filed by the former mayors assistant ken. Feel free to ask, as it should be public record as well as the 911 calls as you stated are recorded public record. You are welcome to come ANYTIME to 238 bemis rd Fitchburg where our offices and meetings are located. We would be more than happy to share information with you. But If you do not have anything positive to offer the group as per your statements, you can go join the Coalition to save Fitchburg group GANG across the street from city hall. Thank you

Feel free to email us at Fitchburgalliance4publicsafety @live.com anytime. We as Victims do not have to disclose the information you request in this forum. As you have stated, it is on public record for all to see and is not false allegations as you state them to be. Our address is 238 bemis rd and you are welcome to visit anytime.If you are truly concerned about this issue, please take the time to go to City Hall and request under the Freedom of Information Act the Grievance and complaint that was formally filed by several citizens on the 911 calls that were not responded to. We think this has answered all what you have said on the matter. Thank you for your concerns and false accusations.

Well glad to hear that fitchburg alliance 4 public safety is out there for everyone. There is a thing though when a person continously calls 911 for non-emergency calls. As this complaint said he called on Drug dealers, prostitutes heck the people are probably not even there when the police drive by. I know that this complainer is just that everyone else is wrong. He is mean spirited, intimidates his neighbors, threatens people, has intimidated the elderly. He is a problem in his neighborhood now. He is invincible. You know the type. So FPD calls them like they see him. I wish they would do a section 12 on this 4300!

WOW! I just read the article and when I saw the name, I chuckled to myself...I knew this kid years ago and he was a fruitcake! It's not surprising to me that they labeled him a 4300! Also, he makes it sound as if he repeatedly calls the police...I mean come on..Do you have nothing better to do with your day than to call and call and call?? They are probably sick of hearing from him and don't want to deal with it...
I thought police had to respond to all 911 calls, whether they hang up or not...I sometimes listen to the scanner for Leominster and it sounds like they do a check on all of them...Aren't they suppose to?

IT IS PROVED by PUBLIC RECORD FOR ALL TO SEE! You stated this yourself! You would be not satisfied if I typed it word for word,so go across the street to city hall and read the complaints or stop by our offices at 238 Bemis Rd. Thank you.

You stated if it is so, it will be public record and yes you are right, IT IS ON PUBLIC RECORD FOR who wants to see can, AT CITY HALL or Police station. It is quite clear you are not satisfied with the date of incident and or what is typed, so in order for YOU to be satisfied,please go to City Hall and request the complaints and grievance that are currently on file. Your ramblings on this blog issue is considered laughable at the least. You sound just like the Coalition to Save fitchburg who wants a list with all the names of the volunteers in town, and their functions, They state"this will provide stability". You most definitely have us confused with the Taking back our street group, which would loosely do what you are asking. Unlike the Save Fitchburg Gang at the Tatoo shop, we have not broken any BYLAWS by violating Mass Law 225 section 2. We would NEVER disclose information of Victims the lack of Fitchburg Public safety policies have produced. Thank you.

I listen to the scanner all the time the fpd answers 911 calls for stupid things why would they not go to yours. must be a reason? or it never took place.

This is the tip of the iceburg. The FPD are rude by nature! They are nasty, very unfriendly,threatening and rude.

This city needs a completely new force; it is so poluted and their sense of entitlement has made them all "4300". They are disrespectful always!

The Mayor has started an investigation that she needs to finish or elect me for Mayor next time around and I will hire an attorney specificaly to contact the FBI for assistance as the FPD is saturated with pure ignorance!

If the new Chief doesn't fix the departments many issues then he has to go!

Well after the second time when the perp came back as he stated he would, 911 was called a third time,they came,and he was arrested and plead guilty on January 7th,which is also on public court records. Based upon your last posts on this subject, don't think you care about the subject matter and your babbling is making no sense at all, as you obviously do not care about Fitchburg's Public Safety issues and have other agendas on this subject. No matter how you spin it, you cannot change what has happened and cannot hide the truth. Since you have all day to listen to the police scanner, you should have the time to verify the facts given. The 911 call was on 9/24 on or around 2pm several calls were made by several witnesses and victims. Spin this off as you see fit. We welcome any and all people who genuinely care about Fitchburg's Public Safety. We have answered Mayor Wong call and Officers Mark Jackson's Plea for Citizens to get involved and report illegal activities. Wong has stated it is our responsibility for crime prevention if we want to make Fitchburg a better place. We will not though, cross legal and moral lines as the Save Fitchburg Gang at the tattoo shop does. You would be a perfect addition the their group and sure they would welcome your ignorance. You are also welcome to come down to 238 Bemis Rd. and make a fool of yourself at one of our meetings as we could use the entertainment your take on thing would bring. We have the proof and copies of the complaints,come on down and take a peek! Our meetings are open to the public and we welcome everyone's opinion. Thank you.

We agree, BUT there is times when it is called for as you would expect a response if you or family needed emergency services and called 911. Maybe the Mayor should retract her position of pleading with the general public that it is their responsibility for Fitchburg's Public Safety. The Fitchburg Alliance for Public safety and awareness has always felt this Taking Back the Street Save Fitchburg Gang as well as good intended citizens may not know there is a line that cannot be crossed. If City Hall is promoting that crime prevention is our responsibility (untrained Citizens)the Fitchburg Police (trained in Law)should have a obligation to respond to any and all 911 calls. Especially if they are relying on such programs to promote Public safety. People are answering the call to make Fitchburg a better place and safer one. It is the REAL BACKING of calls and responses that will be the difference of City Hall promoting REAL PUBLIC SAFETY or just playing politics for a someday future if it come grants. We cannot afford this lack of general public safety services to be promoted to the public and then NEGLECTED when people take a stand against crime in Fitchburg. We know some good citizens because of how they were treated by City Hall and the Fitchburg police department will NEVER report any future crimes because of how they were treated as witnesses and victims. There is more problems than comp time going on in FPD. When you can selectively decide not to respond to REAL dire emergencies we feel lives of our citizens can be immediate danger. Lets hope it does not happen to you. The imitation Public Safety Package that was passed, was transparent and was just to slow the growing Concerns and complaints City hall has received. Over a third of the 97K funds were not used directly to establish any meaningful Programs that would directly help the cities GENERAL public's safety. Funds could of been used for the almost year old promise to reestablish the badly needed foot patrols as well as the idea proposed at the Day Street meeting when funds were supposed to be already received for such badly needed police support. Hopefully the 100+K they save from the resent release of the capt., they could hire 2 or 3 Police officers to establish the foot patrols.

Never stop calling 911. Do not get detered! On the first shift, they are over staffed. Most of the crime is on thurs,fri,and saturday nights!They only have 4 cruisers on these nights!

I have had personal experiences with the Fitchburg police where I submitted complaints with the Mayors office and the police station! There were totally ignorant!!

I would rather deal with a latin king drug dealer than these rude, ignorant cops!! It is that bad in Fitchburg;YES!

They have ZERO controls; They were taking so long one night that I had it as I told them I will handle it as there were elderly people in jeopardy of gettinh hurt!

There response time is so bad that the criminals usually get away!
