Throwing stones

SCARBOROUGH – An incident on the Maine Turnpike in Scarborough resulted in the arrest of a Lewiston man who was allegedly throwing rocks at vehicles.

According to State Police say the man, reportedly high on drugs, was charged after he stopped his car in the median of the Maine Turnpike in Scarborough sometime around midday on July 1 and began throwing rocks at passing cars, damaging three of them. 

When police arrived on the scene, a group of motorists had pinned 42-year-old David Mullen to the ground.  Mullen was charged with criminal mischief and could face additional charges. Southbound traffic on the turnpike was backed up for some time as the incident was resolved. 

Mullen was treated at Maine Medical for facial lacerations.  Mullen told troopers he had been using drugs, including one called “Molly,” which is a form of Ecstasy.

PRCC to answer Bangor 911 calls 

BANGOR – A new entity is now answering emergency calls for the City of Bangor.

Effective May 30, the Penobscot Regional Communications Center (PRCC), located in Bangor, began answering 911 calls for the City of Bangor. The City is retaining its dispatch center at the Bangor Police Department for all other calls. The City of Bangor worked with the PRCC on the changeover for several months to ensure a seamless transition and guarantee the highest quality of service for Bangor citizens. 

The transfer of the City’s 911 calls was precipitated last fall when the City was informed of additional protocols when handling 911 calls. The protocols required the dispatcher to ask a series of questions before dispatching an emergency responder, which increased the length of the call. The additional time for each phone call would have made it necessary for the City to hire additional dispatchers and could have resulted in diminished service levels, particularly for non-emergency calls. 

After careful consideration, the City determined moving 911-call handling to the PRCC would result in higher service levels, by freeing up City dispatchers to handle all non-emergency calls and concentrating the expertise in emergency protocols in one location at the PRCC. In response to the changeover, the PRCC has increased their staffing to handle the additional call volume.

“A quick and skilled response to those seeking emergency assistance is always our priority,” said Mark Hathaway, the City of Bangor Police Chief. ”PRCC is equipped with the necessary resources to answer the City’s 911 calls. Our partnership with PRCC will allow for a seamless change while still providing the same level of professional and experienced service callers have received in the past.”

The transition of 911 calls from Bangor Dispatch to the PRCC will happen in two phases.  The PRCC began answering all 911 calls from a landline on May 30. Beginning June 13, the PRCC will answer all cellular 911 calls as well.
