The more things change, the more they stay the same...No one can say the dogs of FPD (past and present) don’t live good lives.

Great night to get the mountain bikes out and socially distance on the town’s many trails. We know the weather is getting nicer but we’re still asking everyone to do their best and try and avoid the town’s playgrounds and other large social gatherings. Time for a bike bath!

Ps...please don’t run over the barricades, this isn’t their fault

Reminder: Effective today the Governor has ordered that everyone over the age of 2 must wear a mask when in public AND cannot effectively maintain a safe social distancing of 6 feet or more.

Keep in mind that businesses are privately owned. They may REQUIRE more strict requirements than the Governor has issued. That is the right of the business. (Think "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service").

Please keep in mind all of these changes are to help reduce the speed of spread of this virus, so that if and when people need intensive medical care, they can get it.

Mr. Rogers, the best neighbor anyone could ask for said it best in an interview many years ago.

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'"

"I hope you're proud of yourself for the times you've said ‘yes,' when all it meant was extra work for you and was seemingly helpful only to somebody else." -Fred Rogers

The Franklin Police Department is always appreciative of the outpouring of support for us during troubling times. We know that many people and businesses like to show their appreciation though donations of food and meals for the officers who are working through this pandemic.

Unfortunately, due to the potential risks involved with taking in items from the public we cannot accept them. Please know we do appreciate it, but these are measures that we have instituted to do everything we can to slow the spread of the virus, and keep our officers healthy.

We would recommend if you want to express your gratitude and generosity you consider a donation to the Franklin Food Pantry. With so many people struggling financially the Pantry has seen a large increase in clients. Please check their site for more information, and know that for the Pantry, a financial donation helps them more as they buy food at a greatly reduced price from the Greater Boston Food Bank. They can help more families with those kinds of donations.

Thank you for everyone's outpouring of support for your first responders. It has not gone unnoticed. Help us in our mission, by looking our for your family, neighbors, and the larger community.

Thank you.

Ben Franklin would like everyone to know he is ok, and has been hunkered down and social distancing as best he can.

Ben looks forward to getting back out in the community as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Ben also recommends his favorite Twitter feed at: https://twitter.com/dog_feelings

Ben likes to laugh, and totally gets the humor. “Truth” he is often heard by Officer Mucciarone saying as he checks his personal feed.

From Chief Bill McGrath:

SCAM ALERT!!

Getting reports of telephone scams in progress! If you get a call/message instructing you to call back and you will have $50,000 or any amount of money deposited directly into your account as part of the government stimulus program, DON’T... it’s A SCAM!! Don’t call back. Don’t talk to anyone, don’t give them the time of day (or your personal information) just HANG UP. If you fall for the scam, you’re money is very likely gone forever, somewhere overseas and there’s probably nothing Law Enforcement can do to help you!

We have been receiving a great many requests for "Birthday Drive By" celebrations for kids in town. Please understand that while we love to bring joy to everyone, we are still a fully functioning police department and public safety calls for service will always take priority.

Unfortunately it has become impossible to honor all the requests. We have come up with an alternative to try. While it's not as cool as having a bunch of police cars drive up, we hope that it will still let your child know we want to acknowledge their special day. Please DO NOT call the station and request a parade or drive by. We will not be able to accommodate this.

You can use this link to submit a request for a "Birthday Shout Out" for your child on our Instagram page (FranklinMAPolice).

https://www.franklinma.gov/police-department/webforms/franklin-police-birthday-shout-out-request

We will try our hardest to accommodate these requests, but please be understanding of the fact we do not have personnel dedicated to our social media platforms. The officers that handle these requests are also responsible for 911 and other calls for service. It's possible somethings may get missed, or ongoing incidents keep officers from being able to post. All we can promise is that we will try.

Thank you for your understanding.

We are so grateful to the companies and individuals who have stepped up to help us. MatTek Life Sciences of Ashland, and M.S. Walker of Norwood, both have donated hand sanitizer to the Franklin Police Department. We appreciate your sense of community, and willingness to help during this troubling time.

We want to thank BJ's Wholesale Club General Manager Ted Kyriakidis and Manager Lou Alves for their generous donation of water and cleaning supplies to the Franklin Police Department. We recognize that these supplies are in high demand, and we appreciate the assistance in helping us keep our officers healthy, and safe.

The Franklin Police Department operates 28 cruisers, and officers are required to clean and wipe them down before, and after every shift with disinfectants. This is to protect them, and the next officer who gets into the car. Keeping our employees healthy is the top priority, as without them our ability to be there for the community is diminished.

We would be remiss if we did not also thank Jill Murray who donated several dozen masks for the officers.

Franklin has always, and continues to be a community that supports the public safety personnel sworn to protect them. Thank you to everyone who has helped us both in donations, and the verbal "thank you" messages our officers are hearing. Those messages mean more than you can imagine for the officers on the streets, answering calls, and not knowing what they are walking into.

Be safe, stay healthy, and wash your hands! Thank you!

Thank you Bob Ward Boston 25 for highlighting some of the challenges faced by police departments around the country right now. We will still always be here, ready to help when called upon.

Even in the best of times, police work is a tough and physical job and now the COVID-19 crisis is adding another challenging layer to this demanding line of work.

The Franklin Police, like all other first responders and healthcare workers is continually trying to locate personal protective equipment for our officers. We wanted to take this chance to thank a few people that have come by the station, or made arrangements to help us.

Chief Sellon of the Mansfield, MA Police Department who secured us 100 N95 masks, Doug Urmstrom from D&M Auto Parts of Franklin who also donated 100 N95 masks, as well as Kathleen Stoffel who brought by several cases of gloves for us. There is one more to thank, a contractor who came to the station and left us a stack o N95 masks, but never identified himself. Please, if you see this and know who you are, thank you. We are very grateful.

The Franklin community has always been there for us, and we appreciate it very much.
