Randolph Police Donate Over $3,000 to Local Autism Charities

RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace is pleased to announce that the Randolph Police Department and Randolph Police Patrolmen’s Union Local 18 donated over $3,000 to two local autism charities on Friday, Aug. 23.

Beginning in April, the Randolph Police Department sold autism awareness patches in order to raise money for the New England chapter of Autism Speaks and the May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities in Randolph.

In total, 312 patches were sold, raising $3,120. Of that money, $2,620 was donated on Friday to the May Center, 41 Pacella Park Drive, in a presentation at the school. The ceremony also included a visit from Massachusetts State Senator Walter Timilty. The remaining $500 was sent in a check to Autism Speaks.

“We were thrilled to be able to donate to these worthwhile endeavors and it was really great to see the smiling faces of the children at the May Center,” Chief Pace said. “Every little bit helps when it comes to improving the lives of those with autism and I am proud of our officers and everyone who contributed to the cause.”

The initiative was spearheaded by Randolph Police Officers Kevin Gilbert and Matt Rodman. The project was sponsored by the Randolph Police Patrolmen’s Union Local 18, which used funds raised during their first annual golf tournament last year to purchase the autism awareness patches.

“We want to thank everyone who bought the patches and helped to raise money for these great organizations,” Officer Gilbert said.

Randolph Police Donates Refurbished Trailer to High School Blue Devils Marching Band

RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace is pleased to announce that the Randolph Police Department recently donated a refurbished police equipment transport trailer to the Randolph High School Blue Devils Marching Band.

The trailer, previously used to transport police equipment, was no longer being used by the department. With the help of the Randolph Department of Public Works and two local businesses, the trailer was restored inside and out and donated to the band. The trailer was donated and refurbished earlier this summer and was put in use by the band this week.

On Thursday, the marching band brought the trailer to the police department and town hall and performed part of their new 2019 field show for Chief Pace, Town Manager Brian Howard and a representative from public works to show their appreciation for the donation.

“We’re happy to be able to support the Blue Devils Marching Band and hope this trailer will serve them well for years to come,” Chief Pace said. “Projects like this are excellent representations of the community policing initiatives our department is proud to take on.”

The trailer will be used by the band to transport equipment to area field show competitions. For several weekends each fall, the Blue Devils Marching Band, under the direction of Adam Shekleton, participates in competitions at other area high schools as part of the New England Scholastic Band Association (NESBA).

Each weekend during the field show season, the band transports equipment and props for approximately 70 students. Before the Randolph Police Department’s trailer donation, the band would rent a truck every weekend through the music booster program to transport its equipment.

“We’re thankful to Chief Pace and the Randolph Police Department for thinking of us with this donation,” Shekleton said. “It’s great to have a trailer of our own so we can more effectively transport our equipment from competition to competition.”

Chief Pace would like to thank the Randolph Department of Public Works, L&W Auto Body in Randolph and Mark’s Signs Plus in Randolph for their work restoring, painting and adding decals to the trailer.

“The donated and refurbished trailer is another example of the positive collaboration between the Randolph Police Department, the Randolph Public Schools, DPW and local businesses,” said Town Manager Brian Howard. “We’re so pleased with how it turned out and can’t wait to see it on the road.”

Randolph Police Department Receives Donation of 130 Bicycle Helmets

RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace is pleased to announce that the Randolph Police Department has received a donation of 130 bicycle helmets from the law firm Breakstone, White & Gluck for the fourth straight year.

The Boston-based personal injury law firm donated the helmets as part of their Project KidSafe campaign to encourage safe cycling and prevent head injuries.

Randolph Police will distribute the helmets to kids as part of its bicycle safety program.

“We want to once again give our sincere thanks for the generosity of the people at Breakstone, White & Gluck,” Chief Pace said. “Bicycle safety starts with wearing a helmet and because of their donation we are able to provide dozens of kids with helmets in Randolph.”

The Project KidSafe campaign was started by the law firm in 2013 as a way to reduce injuries and encourage children to wear helmets as soon as they start riding. Over five years, the lawyers have now donated more than 20,000 bicycle helmets to children in Massachusetts.

“At Breakstone, White & Gluck, we believe every child should be able to safely ride their bicycle while wearing a helmet,” Attorney David W. White said. “Each year we donate hundreds of brand-new helmets to police departments throughout the region that they then give out to children in their community. It was our pleasure to once again donate over 100 helmets to the Randolph Police Department.”

Massachusetts law requires children who are 16 years old and younger to wear bicycle helmets when they ride.

The Randolph Police Department encourages all cyclists to wear helmets no matter their age.
