Wellesley Police Department Sgt. Scott Whittemore weighs in about Internet safety in light of a weird story in which someone swiped a picture of an Abington, Mass., blogger’s kid off of her website and used it in some sort of Craigslist adoption scam in London. More from WBZ-TV.
Separately, Wellesley PD Chief Terrence Cunningham laments the lack of good young recruits in this Boston Globe article:“If you’re looking for someone to come with a bachelor’s degree and work for $40,000 a year, it’s not going to happen,’’ Cunningham said, referring to what he said is the average salary statewide for police officers. “The interest [in the job] is really starting to wane.’’
Meanwhile, Wellesley’s annual Police Youth Academy program started up this week (photo: WPD).
