Winchester Police Tip Line

Posted By Winchester Police on January 27th, 2014

The Winchester Police Department and the Winchester Coalition for a Safer Community is launching tip411, an internet based tool that enables the public to text message an anonymous tip to police, and lets the police respond back creating a two way anonymous “chat”.

Reserved exclusively for Public Safety purposes and powered by CitizenObserver, a St. Paul MN company, tip411 puts a powerful new crime fighting tool into the hands of our community for all ages and demographics.  tip411 is a national program that benefits over 1000 communities around the county.

Anyone with a cell phone can now send an anonymous tip to Winchester Police by texting the word Winchester and the tip information to 847411 (tip411).

Anonymous web tips can also be submitted right from the Police Department’s website at www.winchesterpd.org (look under CONTACT)  or from the direct link at http://www.citizenobserver.com/cov6/app/webTipForm.html?id=10750

Its 100% anonymous. CitizenObserver’s technology removes all identifying information before the Winchester Police Department see’s it so there’s no way to identify the sender.

The tip line is not intended for emergencies.  If you want to notify police of an emergency, dial 911.

Vote NO on Question 3

Posted By Winchester Police on September 26th, 2012

The Winchester Police Department is urging voters to Vote NO on Question 3 this November.

For more information, visit http://mavotenoonquestion3.com/

The Commonwealth will be voting on Question 3 in November. If passed, Question 3 would set up an extensive system of marijuana storefronts in our state, allow people to grow marijuana in their homes and apartments, and provide a defense to those carrying hundreds of joints under the guise of medicine.

It is anticipated that the details and loopholes in the proposed law would lead to widespread marijuana abuse, particularly among youth in the Commonwealth. It is for this reason, a diverse range of state representives, ranging from Dorchester Democrat Martin Walsh to Sandwich Republican Randy Hunt, have joined a broad and growing coalition of people and organizations to oppose Question 3.  Specifically, the law would:

Set up 35 marijuana retail stores throughout Massachusetts
This number could increase in future years. These stores would be owned and operated by anyone 21 years old or older and would sell
marijuana ice cream, candy, cookies, joints, and other items. There is no requirement in the law to have a physician or licensed pharmacist on site.
Allow people to grow marijuana in their home Your neighbor could grow marijuana plants in their backyard, on their veranda, in their window flower boxes.Your children’s friends could have marijuana growing in their home study, bathroom or garage. Allow people to carry up to a 60-day (2 month) supply of marijuana on their person

A daily dose is undefined in the law. If a daily dose is two joints (most likely it will be more like three to five joints, or 3 marijuana infused brownies), this means a person could have as many as 120 joints (or brownies) on their person or transport this amount of marijuana in their vehicle. Large amounts of marijuana could be issued, possessed and protected under the guise of “medicine.” Allow virtually anyone to obtain marijuana. The proposed legislation lists a few specific conditions for which marijuana can be obtained, but then opens it up to “other conditions as determined in writing by a qualifying patient’s physician.” This is the loophole that is promoting widespread pot use in other states that have passed this type of law – the chronically ill are not the people using existing state programs. In fact, in these programs, less than 5% of people list cancer, HIV/AIDS, or glaucoma as reasons for obtaining marijuana. Studies show the average medical marijuana user is a 32-year old white male with a history of drug and alcohol abuse and no history of life-threatening illness.
