Another amazing job by our first responders, especially, Rhode Island Environmental Police Officer Josh Beuth. Our wishes go out to the involved indicidual for a speedy recovery!

Sunday morning, Environmental Police Officer (EPO) Josh Beuth from DEM’s Division of Law Enforcement (DLE) responded to a call for assistance of an unresponsive individual experiencing a medical emergency on a fishing vessel near the Jamestown Bridge. EPO Beuth determined the vessel was likely to come ashore near the Plum Point area, and was the first responder to arrive. EPO Beuth entered the water along the shore to board the vessel, where the unresponsive subject was accompanied by his fishing partner. Onboard the vessel EPO Beuth performed CPR and was able to get a faint pulse until other responders, including Rhode Island State Police and North Kingstown Fire Department/EMS, arrived on scene to assist. The individual was then transported to the hospital by rescue, and was last reported in stable condition.

“I’m lucky I was in the right place at the right time, which allowed me to help in this situation,” said EPO Beuth. “Our Dispatchers did a great job of relaying my location, status, and needs to the other agencies responding, which I’m sure helped contribute to a positive outcome.”

DEM salutes Rhode Island Environmental Police Officer Beuth for taking such decisive action. His conduct reflects DLE’s mission to protect public safety, public health, and natural resources.

People across the nation have taken to heading outdoors as an easy and healthy way to get out of the house, which means there are more pedestrians out there. Whether it’s walking in a neighborhood or to a store, at some point in the day, everyone is a pedestrian.

This October, NHTSA is launching the first National Pedestrian Safety Month with the goal of increasing awareness about pedestrian safety, and reminding drivers and walkers that staying safe is a shared responsibility.

Sadly, as the end of Daylight Saving Time approaches and the nights get longer, the risks for pedestrians increase. From September to February, over 30% of pedestrian fatalities occur between 6 p.m. and 8:59 p.m. Also, know that things like drugs and alcohol, and distraction not only affect someone’s ability to drive, but to walk safely. Here are some other tips provided by NHTSA for drivers and pedestrians:

5 Walking Safety Tips

1. Walk on sidewalks whenever they are available. If one isn’t available, walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible.

2. Keep alert at all times; don’t be distracted by electronic devices that take your eyes (and ears) off the road.

3. Whenever possible, cross streets at crosswalks or intersections, where drivers expect pedestrians, and look for cars in all directions, including those turning. If neither are available, locate a well-lit area where you have the best view of traffic. Wait for a gap in traffic that allows enough time to cross safely and watch for traffic as you cross.

4. Be visible at all times. Wear bright clothing during the day, and wear reflective materials or use a flashlight at night. Never assume a driver sees you. Make eye contact with drivers as they approach to make sure you are seen.

5. Watch for cars entering or exiting driveways, or backing up in parking lots.

5 Driving Safety Tips

1. Look out for pedestrians everywhere, at all times. Use extra caution when driving in hard-to-see conditions, such as nighttime or bad weather.

2. Slow down and be prepared to stop when turning or otherwise entering a crosswalk. And, never pass vehicles stopped at a crosswalk. There may be people crossing that you can’t see.

3. Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and stop well back from the crosswalk to give other vehicles an opportunity to see and stop for the crossing pedestrians.

4. Follow the speed limit, especially around people on the street. Follow slower speed limits in school zones and in neighborhoods where children are present.

5. Be extra cautious when backing up—pedestrians can move into your path.

This October, and throughout the year, let’s work together to keep everyone safe on the roads.

Newport County Police Departments Announce Labor Day Weekend DUI Enforcement Campaign

This Labor Day weekend, ALL Newport County Police Departments, including Middletown, Newport, Portsmouth, Jamestown, Tiverton and Little Compton, in cooperation with the Rhode Island Office on Highway Safety and the Rhode Island Police Chiefs’ Association, will be conducting enhanced DUI patrols.

This campaign will begin on Friday, Sept. 3 and continue through Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 6. According to the National Highway Safety Transportation Administration (NHSTA) statistics, during the 2019 Labor Day Weekend, there were 451 traffic related fatalities across the United States. Of those fatalities, 45% involved a driver who had been driving under the influence. The goal of this campaign is to educate the public on the dangers of driving under the influence and to reduce the number of motor vehicle crashes attributed to impaired drivers.

All Newport County Police Departments will work in collaboration, with some departments teaming up officers throughout the holiday weekend and performing saturation patrols in an effort to detect impaired drivers. In addition, this DUI initiative will utilize the Providence Police Department’s Breath Alcohol Testing (B.A.T.) Mobile Unit. The B.A.T. Mobile allows officers to have centralized location to process all DUI arrests, which includes the administering of breathalyzer tests. Departments will also have trained Drug Recognition Experts (DRE’s) on hand to further evaluate drivers who may be operating while under the influence of a controlled substance other than alcohol.

“Newport County Police Departments will have a strong presence on all roads over the Labor Day weekend.” said Middletown Police Chief William Kewer. “We encourage members of the public to call 911 from their cell phone if they observe aggressive or erratic drivers. We would also like to wish everyone a happy Labor Day, and hope they have an enjoyable and SAFE holiday weekend.”

Be Smart and Be Responsible.

Just want to say thank you to the officer I flagged down yesterday. You truly went above and beyond to keep our streets safe!
Excellent letter. Well written. Reasonable. Understand you are trying to share by phone too. Don't know how you can enforce it. The right thing to do. You are up to this! And you will figure it out.
Please send prayers. We’re in NY for treatment but something has gone wrong and Danny is very ill. For reasons not yet know, Danny has a good amount of swelling in his brain and his cerebral spinal fluid is showing infection. He’s non-verbal and in an emergency MRI right now. As this pic from Monday shows, he was so excited to be in New York...all I want is to his hear his little voice and see this smile. Please, Lord, please.
