Massachusetts State Police work with Taunton Police towards common goal of promoting positive interactions within the community

“Our own Trooper Jessie Barbosa working with the City of Taunton. The below message is from Taunton PD:

“Positive community engagement and interaction, through response, events, meetings and forums is paramount for a police department to be effective when serving a community, promoting transparency and building legitimacy.

As a result, Chief Edward J. Walsh is pleased to introduce a new partnership with Massachusetts State Police Trooper Jessie Barbosa. Trooper Barbosa is assigned as a State Police Community Liaison and will be working cooperatively with Taunton Police Officers with a common goal of promoting positive interactions within the Taunton community we all serve.

In a short time, Trooper Barbosa has already attended UNITE Task Force meetings with Taunton Police Lt. Eric Nichols, has piloted a new program at Girls Inc. where she will work with female Taunton Police Officers and today teamed up with School Resource Officer Pete MacDougall.

SRO MacDougall introduced her to Taunton School Superintendent John Cabral and many members of the administration. Trooper Barbosa will be collaborating with Taunton officers in the upcoming weeks participating in Read Across America, where police officers read books to students. Dr. Seuss is always a favorite.

Please help us welcome Trooper Barbosa to our community.”
