Montague Police Department: New Fulltime Officer Appointed: Jacob Lapean Congratulations to Jacob Lapean for being hired as the newest fulltime Montague Police Officer. Jacob was hired using funds provided by the Franklin County Technical School. A fulltime School resource Officer will be placed at the Franklin County Technical School as soon as Officer Jacob Lapean graduates from the Police Academy. Jacob starts the Police Academy in the middle of August and will complete a 21 week program. If you see Jacob on the street be sure to say "Hi". He is a wonderful asset to our police department and he fits in well with the department and the community. Jacob grew up in Montague and received his education through the Town of Montague School system and the Greenfield Community College. Good Luck Officer Lapean and be Safe.
Montague Police Department: A resident recently turned in some pictures of the Montague Police Department that go as far back as the 1940's. Attached is a picture of the Montague Police Department taken while Chief Walter P. Casey was the Police Chief (1945-1960). Next to the picture of the officers is a picture showing the row and names of the officers. The resident tried to fill in what they knew. Take a look at the picture and see if there is anyone you know. This may bring back some wonderful memories for some of our elder residents. Enjoy, Chief Chip Dodge
Orange Ma Police Department: Gun permits this evening and we still have two appointments available. Call if you need one, 978-544-2129 x 201. FYI...things are moving along much quicker than they were and licenses are coming back within 5 weeks. Fall gets a lot busier though due to hunting season. Check your permit and if it expires in September or October, start the process soon.
