A change of culture at Fitchburg Police Dept. - Sentinel & Enterprise

Full story: Sentinel & Enterprise

A cultural sea change has taken place at the Fitchburg Police Department over the past few years, thanks in large part to Chief Robert DeMoura's steady leadership and Mayor Lisa Wong's firm resolve and vision to bring about broader change in Fitchburg.

HI KEVIN!
What is wrong with you dude? And you are a cop? You must be the class act down at JRs! Again tonight,parked in the fire lane! While two marked cruisers are parked next door!

I swear this FPD is a class act itself! Imagine on a Staurday night we have two FPD cruisers standing by JRs as their fellow cops park in the fire lane. This is their daily routine as they are just daring now!

It would be nice to see someone throw a molly top at the car in the fire lane but then they would probably like that as the have big insurance on those cars! Maybe one of the cruisers will smash into it!

Now they will burn out there tires and the pavement in front of the fire station tonight at closing, drunk as boot owls!

Well Chief, you have a class act group of officers displaying themselves as rogue,renegade and rude display of who they are in life for real!

Oh, I pray that a fire engine smashes the car into the front of JRs! I will toast a drink out front of JRs tomorrow if they smash this car into JRs!

Can you imagine,two marked cruisers again displaying their allegiance to the rogue clique! Fitchburg has no chance as long as these bumbling idiots are running the show! They are probably drinking in the cruisers again!

Chief are you ever going to do anything with this group? Or do they run the show? Drinking and driving is supported by FPD members should be the new bumber sticker issued by JRs management! F it post them on the cruisers also! Class act!!!

Kevin Lynch goes by the names Lynch for Mayor and Fitchburg resident. And when he gets mad at you, he will post under your screen name. He is a trouble maker who constantly makes up lies about police officers trying to discredit them.

if Kevin is aware of the new harassment laws, ch 258E. You should check it out Kevin, because there are alot of people that could file a complaint against you.

Please seek help. You are in need of serious mental health treatment.

No, I'm not a cop, nor are my family members. I'm a social worker.

But of course these new harrassment laws do not pertain to members of the FPD? No laws pertain to the members of the fpd! They break the law freely!

Have you read the remarks that zing has made? And you are ok with that? If you co sign his remarks then you are just as bad as that puke!

And Yes, I believe that zing is a cop! They post this address of this guy over and over on every blog. Where is there addresses and names?

Certain cops belong off the force but unless they r.a.pe someone then they will not be held accountable for their actions! If you are a social worker then people must tell you all the time about police harrassment!

You have issues with this Stephen Lynch,huh? Why don't you post about the article? Lets hear your synopsis of how the FPD is running and the Mayors office!

Once again, My Mother was in Stephen Lynch's district. He was doing his job when he called the acting police Chief as there were CLEAR evidence and facts that members of the FPD had seriously mistreated my mother!

What does the probation department have to do with any of this anyhow? If you look in any Fitchburg department there has been nepatism involved at some point! Look at all the school boards,look at all the city boards.

Mayor Wong has seriously failed the city in reference to the FPD as she refused to persue certain officers termination and refused to bring charges against them.Lights are off across the city for years now, areas where they are off muggings are up!

The Chief has not implemented a just Internal Affairs, he has not placed camerras inside of the police station and he has not implemented any community programs in an effort to better police and citizen relations!

Now the rude and illegal conduct of members of the FPD on duty and off has risen greatly. He has not addressed the issue at JRs at all! Two cruisers were there last night again showing a blind eye to law breakers! This is seen by all residents and it is disgraceful!

I am wondering who owns the plate on the red pick up that has been seen at JRs and the police station recently? If anyone knows, please post this info.

This same driver parked in the LEFT lane on main st arrogantly and blatently without care during rush hour! My guess was that only an off duty cop would do something as brazin and dangerous without careing! I was right,I think. Well anyways his plate is V5X or V5W. This is close if not exact!

This is the head of the clique in Fitchburg! We need this person addressed by the gang unit!

The city needs to re negotiate the contract with the police union! We need to serious reduce the number of days off that fpd members currently recieve. All OT must be cut off besides the OT that is paid for through private business!

After this is done then we need to hire more police detectives. We must state in the new contract that promotions will be done through a merit based system! The current Seniority system is seriously flawed!

Then install a non associated Internal Affairs as I will ask for this job! Internal Affairs needs to be deputized to be able to issue tickets to the patrons at JRs and other rogue police within the FPD.

On the state level the State Police payroll is out of control! There are state troopers who recieve a base salary of $75,000 and then an additional $123,000 in OT. Here is the link to this fact!

Along with that link that I have left for you to check out concerning State Trooper pay. Here is a story for you, my friend the cop!
I was wondering that you may like my other post. Let me give you a break down. I was stating that my friend recieved a speeding ticket for doing 65 in a 55 at the lowell connector where it splits off. They had three cruisers that had six cars pulled over that day at this spot.

My friends score went from a 99 (perfect) to an 02. Under a 99 he would pay from $750-$1,100 for full coverage in one year. Under the 02, he has to pay $1,400 minimum for the same coverage.So he will spend an extra $4000 plus the cost of the ticket over six years. Now his insurance company that he had for roughly five years would not reinstate him due to this ticket! LMAO.

That isn't bad, my nephew they want $4,500 from him for insurance this year. He is 20 and had one accident. He slid on ice and hit a pole as many had to be towed out of the ditch on 495 that day. Well he recieved $2,600 for his totaled car which $600 he just spent for brand new tires at Sears! So since then he has spent roughly $4,400 for insurance and he has 4 more years of paying top rate.So he will pay $18,000 plus the $4,400 which totals $22,400 over six years if he doesn't cost them anymore money!

I need to add of course. Now if any of us were cops then we could of easily had the speeding ticket fixed and the accident! So for one ticket a cop saves $4,000 if he gets it fixed. Now let me ask you, over the last six years how many tickets did you have taken care of or wasn't given one because of who you know or who you are? Man, if it's only two tickets your benefit would be $8,000! Not bad; maybe I should get one of those state police support stickers,HUH?

Oh my points are at 02 also as I had an inspection violation. I lent my brother my truck on the conditions that he would get an inspection sticker as I had just paid $650 for the needed repair to pass. Well, he got pulled over and the statie stated, "so, you don't like cops ..." and he stated that he just borrowed my truck! I got a sticker the very next day! So now I have to pay that extra $4000 because the statie thought I didn't like cops! Nice huh? LMAO!!

I scored a 99 on the state police exam but wasn't excepted as there was an equal opportunity law in place where an hispanic woman could score a 85 and get accepted before me. I am not complaining as I agree with this law. An average score of an FPD member on this test would be a 97, I believe? They ask you questions like if an elderly lady was crossing the street outside of the crosswalk do you A) Run her over B) Shoot her C) Yell at her and splash her with water or D) Allow her to cross safetly, by putting on the flashers and then pull over and give her a citation for jay walking? I wonder if this is one of the three questions that the fpd member got wrong??

I just figure it out! We have roughly 3000 State troopers in Massachusetts. There are roughly 7,000 square miles of land. So we have roughly 1 trooper for every two square miles including farm land and mountains ect. So we could allow the mountains less protection!

Fitchburg is 27 square miles of land. We have roughly 80 FPD members. So we have roughly 2.9 officers per square mile.

So, between state Police and Fitchburg police there are roughly a total of 4 cops for every square mile in Fitchburg! HMMMM

Do you know that Fitchburg is the hilliest land in the US after san fran?

Hey Mayor, can we get a government grant for NEW CHARGES for the FPD as Fitchburg is the hilliest city in the US outside of San Fran?

Just thinking because I know that these suped up charges are good for hills. For instance, if McNamarra had a super charged charger as a cruiser then he wouldn't have blown the motor pulling that horse trailer!

Gerry Martell? Thanks! So what do you think of this guys driving behaviors? I just did an insurance example. Under this guys violations; if the fpd had ticketed this guy for just the two violations that I seen him commit then he would have to pay roughly $8,000 extra in insurance under the new point system as he would be like an 04 with two violations!

If the city calculates the amount of violations that they could issue to JRs patrons alone then this would be roughly(8 burnouts in front of the station),(6 firelane violations) on a good night at JRs this would be roughly $56,000 in fees over six years in surcharges(14 tickets times $4,000). Wow! So each night that JRs is open the state could draw in roughly $9,000 a year! So if you go by on say 4 different times throughout the year the state could collect $36,000 a year!!

How can I get one of them, I am a patron of JRs stickers??

What connection does he have to be parked at the police station? Does he have a son working there. This isn't the same Gerry Martel who ran over Captain Louney on Main street?

I know that the person that I seen driving that truck was not 80 years old! I can't believe that this guy ran Captain Louney over!

So who else drives this truck? Whoever was driving that truck was at the police station in the front row. You have to be up on the ladder to have a parking spot in the second row! I believe it was second shift!
