Release Date: February 22, 2017
Officer Phillip Jones has been selected to represent all Maine police officers for the Special Olympics in Austria. He leaves on March 7th and will be returning on March 20th.
As part of the final leg for the World Games, Phil will be joining police officers from all over the world to run the Special Olympics Torch Run leading up to the start of the games. Phil was asked to give a speech in Innsbruck (one of the stops along the way). It will be an opportunity to offer a greeting on behalf of the Law Enforcement from Maine. There Is a long standing tradition to exchange gifts with the heads of the city after the speech is given. From what Phil has been told, the best gift ever was by a police officer was presented last year when an officer from TX presented a state flag and a letter from his governor. Knowing Texas, I’m not surprised. Phil will be bringing the Maine State flag in a nice case.
Phil has been involved with the Torch Run for about ten years (since he was hired) and has taken part in various fundraising events for Special Olympics to include doughnut eating, dunk tanks, and camping on top of the local hardware store. Bridgton generally raises about 3-4 thousand dollars for Special Olympics Maine each year. Phil serves as the leg leader for our area which covers Bridgton to Brunswick. Officer Jones serves on the state’s executive board for the Torch Run, in 2013 he was asked to be a part of the honor guard at the international conference in Orlando, and he has attended the local games in Orono to present medals and help with the opening ceremonies.
In his speech he will be able to give a brief overview of his involvement with the Torch Run and Special Olympics in Maine and also offer a couple of inspiring stories about some of the athletes he’s met along the way.

CODERED Emergency Alert System -Voice Over IP (VOIP)
The Cumberland County Regional Communications Center began using the CODERED emergency Alert system about a month ago and reports that the system is working well.
According to Director Bill Holmes, “staff members report that the system is easy to use and functions well.” Holmes said that last week, the CODERED system was used to alert area residents / businesses in Windham of a missing elderly woman. Within minutes, after receiving the alert notice, a local bank called to report that the woman reported missing was inside the bank.
An update to the initial CODERED implementation includes notifying citizens in Cumberland County using VOIP telephones who wish to receive the emergency alert notices that they will need to “opt in” their telephone information in order to alert notices.
Citizens can opt in their cellular telephones and VOIP telephones by going to the Cumberland County website at cumberlandcounty.org and selecting the CODERED Icon.
Additional questions may be directed to Glen Glarland, Fire Chief for the Town of Bridgton, at 207-647-8814
