Some might say, luck has a lot to do with success in police work. Officer James Kline and Officer Amable Colon found themselves at the right place at the right time while on patrol back in June of 2015.
Ofc. Kline had been assigned as Colon’s Field Training Officer and the two were patrolling the commercial corridor in Orange along the Boston Post Road. It was then, that Kline saw the Google Maps car pulling into the main driveway of the plaza they had been patrolling, and he decided to seize the moment.
Kline called it an exercise in “Media Relations” and “Police & the Public.” As the picture reflects as the google vehicle drove by the officers were able to give a friendly wave. Google voluntarily blurred the officers face and the cruiser plate in the photo.
Ofc. Colon would check the Google Maps site on occasion to see if the picture was used and just recently stumbled upon the image.
Often people will stage scenes for the google photo cars, in this case is was purely being in the right place at the right time.
For the past six years the town of Orange has participated in Drug Take-Back Day with great success.
On Saturday, April 29, the Orange Police Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.), has scheduled another one-day National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Once again, the Orange Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members will assist in the collection.
This event will take place in the CVS parking lot, 279 Boston Post Road. This is free and anonymous, no questions asked. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted or unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications.
These take-back events highlight the problems related to prescription drug abuse, and give citizens an opportunity to contribute to the solution. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.
Unwanted, unused, or expired medications in our homes are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are very high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.
Studies have shown that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines, such as flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash, can pose a potential safety and health hazard.
Just bring your unwanted drugs in a box or bag and dump them into one of the large containers provided at the site.
The DEA will bring all of Connecticut’s collected items to an undisclosed site and incinerate them.
The final seconds ticked off the scoreboard at Jonathan Law High School and with that concluded the Holy Infant-Orangemen’s 7th grade boys basketball season.
But it wasn’t just any season, it was a wildly successful season on all accounts. “Historically, this has to be one of the best seasons head coach Powell Chodos explained, “We went 44-11 against 7th grade teams from all over Connecticut, we won the Bristol Christmas Tournament (4-0), we won the Sal Tinari-East haven tournament (4-1), we won the A division of the Fairfield County tournament (3-0) and we won the prestigious Milford Hoopfest tournament (40 seventh grade teams, 6-1 record) I’m not sure if any Orange team has ever accomplished all that.”
Chodos gives credit to his team, “They are a smart bunch, they show up to practice, they play hard, they share the ball and they genuinely love playing together–as a coach that’s all you can ask for”.
