Chief Paul F. O’Brien II would like to thank local businesses for the donations of much needed and hard to find Personal Protective Equipment and hand sanitizer. Chief O’Brien would like to thank the Bridgewater Home Depot manager Taylor Tocchio for donating disposable nitrile gloves that are essential in preventing the transmission of pathogens when officers are working. Chief O’Brien would like to thank The Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission for donating hand sanitizer and Sullivan Tire for distributing hand sanitizer from Dirty Water Distillery in Plymouth Massachusetts. These items are used every day to help keep our officers safe from germs when handwashing in the field is not practical.
Chief O’Brien would strongly recommend following all of the CDC guidelines on COVID-19 to keep you and your loved ones safe at home. Good handwashing and social distancing are key to stop the spread of the virus.
