2005 Report to the Town of Antrim

There can be no dispute that the Antrim Police Department has undergone significant changes over the last year.  In fact, having only been your Chief since August, I find it somewhat difficult to reflect on a lot of those changes.  With the departure of former Chief Brian Brown and other members of this department, the town was forced to fill an obvious void.  

As a result, the staffing level of the police department is almost complete.  Although there has been an acclimation period for all of us, I feel comfortable in saying that we are all very happy with our decision to work for such a supportive community and look forward to this continued trend.  This team of officers brings to the town a very well educated police force with over 30 years of combined experience.

It is obvious that the Antrim Police Department has been directly involved with the community on many levels in the past.  We would like to assure you that positive community involvement continues to be a very important part of the agency’s mission and vision.  Indeed, numerous steps have been taken and are being pursued in order to enhance our involvement.  For example, the first Citizens’ Police Academy is scheduled to begin in March 2006.  This will consist of citizens meeting for three hours, once a week for thirteen weeks.  Classes and demonstrations will be presented on areas such as motor vehicle laws, defensive tactics, DWI, use of force, firearms and many others.   The Town Hall has developed a welcome packet for new residents when they move into Town.  The police department is responsible for delivering this packet with the hopes of officers engaging the citizens in a positive venue as opposed to the all too familiar motor vehicle stop or some other negative incident.  The department is significantly increasing the communication, education and information relayed to the public via press releases, publications in local newsletters, and enhancing the web site.  The potential for further programs and community involvement is also being actively explored.

There has been some concern with the limited police response or coverage over the recent past and we appreciate your understanding with this matter.  Police coverage has been significantly improved and will continue to get better.  Personnel changes are just a small part of what has been transpiring within the police department.  Our software and records management system has been significantly upgraded, therefore allowing for better management, accountability, tracking and analysis of calls for service, and other police activity.  

We recently added Tasers to the tools available to our officers when faced with a use of force situation.  This was done at no cost to the Town and was funded solely through a grant.  Statistics have shown a 50% reduction in workman’s comp reports due to arrest injuries.  In one year alone, eighteen suspects were subdued with a Taser where the use of deadly force would have been justified.  There has been a 75% reduction in the use of chemical agents and 50% reduction in physical “hands-on” force by officers.  I can speak from experience, that this is by far the most effective option available to officers when confronted with a use of force situation.  Other grants that have been obtained since August of this year include DWI Enforcement, Speed Enforcement, Vehicle Pursuit Stop Sticks, and Bicycle Helmets.

Lastly, we must all work together to not only maintain the safety of our Town, but to improve it as well.  The Antrim Police Department relies on you to help us in any way you can.  With that being said, we are here to serve you, so please do not hesitate to call on us should you need something, see something suspicious, or just to give us your opinion.  Thanks for making our transition a positive and worthwhile experience.

Respectfully submitted,

Todd E. Feyrer
Former Chief of Police
