Officers were dispatched to Necco parking lot on Monday, Mary 1, for a report of a larceny from a motor vehicle. Apparently a security guard called when he saw a suspicious party stealing tires. Officers went off but simultaneously another officer was on his way there  when the security guard, who was following the suspect vehicle, pointed the suspect car out. The vehicle immediately accelerated at a high rate of speed westbound on American Legion Highway down Squire Road to Copeland Circle toward the exit going to the Mystic/Tobin Bridge. The suspect vehicle failed to stop for the officer who activated his blue light and sirens. A short time later the vehicle was found unoccupied in Chelsea. The vehicle was towed back to the station. Several tires were seen in the vehicle. One vehicle was already observed to have all four tires missing at Necco.

Revere Police launch effort to reduce motor vehicle injuries and fatalities by increasing seat belt use

Mayor Brian Arrigo and Chief of Police Joseph Cafarelli recently announced that the Revere Police Department, in partnership with the Highway Safety Division of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, the Massachusetts State Police, and up to 200 other Massachusetts local police departments, will take part in the national Click It or Ticket campaign through May 29. This high-visibility mobilization will promote seat belt use through increased traffic enforcement in an effort to reduce motor vehicle deaths and injuries.

“More people buckling up means more lives saved,” said Chief Cafarelli. “Our officers will be out enforcing the seat belt and child passenger safety laws so that fewer people are needlessly injured or killed in crashes in Revere.”

Massachusetts seat belt usage is significantly lower than the national average – 78 percent compared to 90 percent, according to the state’s annual seat belt observation study.

Sixty-four percent of the 172 people killed in motor vehicle crashes on Massachusetts roads in 2015 were known to be unrestrained, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Seatbelts saved an estimated 72 lives in Massachusetts in 2015, according to NHTSA, and an additional 41 deaths could have been prevented if seatbelt usage was at 100 percent.

“The simple act of buckling up will give you a fighting chance in the event of a crash – increasing your chances of surviving by at least fifty percent,” said Jeff Larason, Director of the Highway Safety Division. “We’re asking all drivers to protect themselves by wearing a seatbelt on every trip – short or long, day and night – and to keep their eyes on the road.”

SUDI members and Mayor Arrigo hold opioid abuse forum

By Sue Ellen Woodcock

City officials held a community forum to address opioid abuse last Wednesday night at Revere High School.

Attendees heard from Mayor Brian Arrigo and members of the city’s Substance Use Disorder Initiatives (SUDI) office.

“This has been an important issue for my office,” Arrigo said.

A year ago the city opened the SUDI office at 437 Revere St. and Arrigo admits there was a little push back.

“At the end of the day that offices is saving lives,” Arrigo said, noting that they have looked at what a lot of communities are doing and everyone seems to be doing their own thing.

Arrigo said he has put money in the FY18 budget to have the city follow the “HUB and COR” model for addressing abuse and recovery. The city of Chelsea has successfully implemented and follows this model.

“The stakeholders meet weekly and work with high risk individuals,” Arrigo said.

Julia Newell, who heads up the granted funded SUDI office, said its a complex issue. Just back from a meeting in Washington where she spoke with the Acting Director of National Drug Policy.

Newell said the acting director was interested in Revere’s improvement plan and door-knocking program. The door-knocking program is where firefighters, police and members of SUDI visit someone who is having problems or has overdosed. They are not only there for the addict, but they are also there for the family.

As part of a grant, Newhall said, they will be able to bring on board a part-time person dedicated to working with the police and fire departments.

Also working in the office is Nicole Silvestri, the coordinator for the Partnership for Success grant, which allows her to work with high school youth. A couple of audience members expressed an interest in having someone come and talk to their youth sports team.

The SUDI office has a drop-in night on Tuesday nights from 5-8 p.m. at 437 Revere St. It is free and confidential.
