Officer’s book gives view into lives of law enforcement

By Nok-Noi Ricker Bangor Daily News| SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — He argued with his supervisor and got disciplined, made friends with drug dealers in order to get news from the street, and he isn't afraid to tell you that one night he returned home from a grueling night of investigating and threw his clothing on the floor.

Seconds later, South Portland police Detective Sgt. Steve Webster pulled on those same clothes and headed back out the door when a new tip surfaced in the case he was investigating.

Webster's self-published book "One Promise Kept" is about a promise he made to a 7-year-old crime victim, but it's also a glimpse into the life of one lifelong Mainer who carried a gun and badge.

"It's not always pretty, the cases don't get wrapped up in an hour as they do on TV, and the decisions we are forced to make in an instant can be scrutinized for years," Webster says in the prologue.

That is the life of a person who puts on the uniform.

"I'm no different from a guy in Bangor who does this job," Webster said recently during a phone interview.

Webster published the book a year ago, with help from reporter Trevor Maxwell, after working since 1987 for South Portland Police Department where he spent time as an agent for the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, and as the Criminal Investigation Division supervisor.

The book takes readers through the steps Webster made while investigating a 1998 home burglary involving two Asian girls who were tied up, had their jewelry stolen and had weapons pointed at them.

"It doesn't get any more real," Bangor police Detective Larry Morrill said recently about the book. "This is from right here in Maine. This is reality."

While telling the story, Webster touches upon drug addiction and trafficking in the state, the poor, domestic violence, sex and murder — including some of the scariest moments of his life — and how he merged responding to those into his everyday life, which included marriage, three children and an ill father.

"My work was a slide show of death, degradation and filth, and then I would return home where I was expected to be a loving husband and doting father," Webster wrote. "It wasn't easy."

The same was true sometimes when responding to police calls.

"We're human and we have emotions and we're expected to smile all the time and it's not always possible," Webster said. "The cop who shows up to deal with someone's broken window may have just come from a fatal accident and that broken window may not be that important."

The sacrifices police and other law enforcement officials make are demonstrated again and again in the 158-page book, interspersed with what Webster calls black humor.

"Laughter is a tool we use to manage that stress," he writes about himself and fellow officers.

The five men who broke into the Asian girl's home eventually were arrested and convicted of the crime — a moment Webster found gratifying — and he was able to keep his promise.

"I made that girl a promise and I never thought I would be able to keep it," Webster said. "I promised her the night that it happened that I would catch these people."

And so he did.

Local bank gives Mass. PD it’s first ever AED

By Debbie LaPlaca Worcester Telegram & Gazette

CHARLTON, Mass. — First responders from the Charlton Police Department are equipped with a new portable device that can save the lives of victims struck by sudden cardiac arrest.

The department's first Automated External Defibrillator was recently donated by the Charlton branch of Savers Bank.

It came about because Charlton Police Chief James A. Pervier serves on a Worcester County Triad council known as SALT, for Seniors And Lawmen Together.

"At a SALT meeting, I said my agency is without an AED, and with an aging population, I could use is this type of device," Chief Pervier said.

Savers Branch Manager Eileen J. Piotroski, who also serves on SALT, took the chief's comment to heart. She and bank president Joseph A. Coderre presented a $2,339 Medtronic Lifepak 1000 defibrillator to the chief on March 5.

"Being a small, community-based bank, we try to step up," Ms. Piotroski said.

Savers Bank, Chief Pervier said, has been a generous community partner to his department and other town organizations.

Under Ms. Piotroski's direction, the Charlton branch has aided in the repair of storm-damaged soccer fields, replaced a dock at the YMCA camp, and contributed to a wealth of local charities and programs.

During the presentation at the bank, the chief thanked the bank officers and extolled the benefits of AEDs.

"I've done CPR on persons without the device, and I've had two survive in my career, and a lot have not," Chief Pervier said.

The use of an AED increases the survival rate of people in sudden cardiac arrest by 74 percent.

Automated voice commands guide the device's operator through analyzing the victim's heart rhythm. If life-threatening arrhythmia is detected, the machine charges to the appropriate level and delivers a shock.

More than 300,000 Americans are victims of sudden cardiac arrest every year, of which about 5 percent survive. Many deaths are preventable with the use of CPR and an AED, according to the American Red Cross.

Felonbook.com gives criminals a social network of their own

null

By PoliceOne Staff

NEW YORK — With the launch of felonbook.com, Americans with criminal records now have their own online community.

Mr. X (con), as the anonymous creator calls himself, had the idea for felonbook while serving a federal prison term for nonviolent marijuana charges, according to a press release. He looks "to give personal power back to those with a criminal history" by encouraging users to think about how to better their situation and change "the system."

The press release states:

"Felonbook gives the average Joe, perhaps a convicted felon, ex-con, even friends, family or like-minded citizens, the opportunity to have their vision manifest.

"This is done when an individual member of the community creates a Group, gives details about something he or she would like to change, and then through discussion proceeds to 'sell' this particular plan to the Group.

"Groups that have three thousand members in unanimous agreement, move forward to a Forum where the entire felonbook community looks over the proposal. Game Changer plans are approved out of Forum by an entire community majority vote.

"After this they are adopted and supported from the community fund, which is generated via individual membership fees of $9.99 a year."

No personal pictures or videos are promoted on felonbook.
