“You're a grand old flag
You're a high-flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave
You're the emblem of
The land I love
The home of the free and the brave
Ev'ry heart beats true
Under red, white and blue
Where there's never a boast or brag
But should old acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the grand old flag”

Where there's never a boast or brag
But should old acquaintance be forgot

The Acushnet Police Department extends our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Sergeant Michael Cassidy.

Sgt. Cassidy has touched the lives of so many officers including every member of the APD. Sgt. Cassidy is also the son of retired Sgt. Cassidy who donned the Acushnet Badge.

Please keep his family, friends and the members of the NBPD in your thoughts and prayers.

It is with is with the heaviest of hearts and deepest of respect that Acting Chief Paul Oliveira mourns the passing of NBPD Sgt. Mike Cassidy after a valiant battle with COVID-19.

Sgt. Cassidy was a US Marine who served in Desert Storm before returning to New Bedford where he joined the NBPD in 1994. Throughout his career, he served in Uniform Patrol, Narcotics, Criminal Investigations and Fi****ms. Sgt. Cassidy received New Bedford Life Saving Awards in 2006 and 2018 along with numerous citations and commendations for his military and police service from the City, the Commonwealth of MA, and the US Senate and Congress/Recognition of American Red Cross Real Hero’s Award.

“This is a tremendous loss to our department and to the City of New Bedford as we all know Sgt. Cassidy was a proud Officer who served the people of this city with his whole heart,” said Oliveira. “Sgt. Cassidy loved being a Police Officer and went above and beyond to impact the lives of others in a positive way.”

Please take a moment to remember him and keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. Arrangements will be announced at a later date.

************OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE**************

On Tuesday, April 13 at approximately 5:30 p.m., a white Nissan Sentra was pulled over for speeding on Slocum Road. The operator, Robin Lyn Laroche, of Fall River, had a suspended driver’s license and two active arrest warrants. During the arrest, a knife was located around her neck.

The vehicle’s passenger, Jose L. Cruz, also of Fall River, was asked by officers if he had any weapons in his possession; he admitted to having a knife as well, which was kept in his front pants pocket. That knife “had an automatic spring release with a double-edged blade”. Cruz was also placed under arrest for the possession of a dangerous weapon.

The vehicle was then searched. Over 100 grams of suspected he**in was seized along with approximately $1235 cash and other drug distribution materials.

Laroche and Cruz were charged with several felonies including Trafficking he**in in excess of 100 grams, conspiracy to violate drug laws, and possession of a Class A drug, subsequent offense

An excellent job done by our 4PM-12AM patrol officers. Officer Indio, Officer Lajoie, Officer Martins and Sergeant Matton took a ton of dangerous narcotics off our streets!
