They have been training for a while and today they receive their official "license" to serve! Fourteen police officers and their dogs graduate from the Maine Criminal Justice Academy starting at 10am today. One of those graduates is close to my heart!
There was an armed standoff last night at the Morning Star Motel in Lewiston last night. The police had blocked off a section of Lisbon Road near the motel and surrounded the building with guns drawn. Lewiston police were joined by the Maine State Police Tactical Team to assist in the operation.
