Chief Joseph Solomon, Mayor Steve Zanni and Essex County Sheriff Frank Cousins announced a new initiative between the Methuen Police Department and the Essex County Sheriff’s Department. Starting last Friday, the Essex County Sheriff’s Department began deploying a K9 unit to the city. This officer will be available on Friday and Saturday evening to assist Methuen Police officers during these weekend hours. In addition, Sheriff Cousins has assigned a Warrant Apprehension team to assist Methuen Police detectives in the apprehension of suspects who have outstanding arrest warrants.
The Methuen Police Department has always maintained a strong working relationship for the Essex County Sheriff’s Department. We would like to thank Sheriff Cousins and Mayor Zanni for their assistance and support with this initiative.
