Chelmsford PoliceThe Chelmsford Police is offering their SafeWatch Program, to help family members and caregivers of members of our community who may have conditions that cause them to wander, be unsafe, or pose a danger either to themselves or to others.

The Chelmsford Police is working to identify those individuals and their caretakers so that they can respond to crisis situations in a knowledgeable manner and ensure the proper steps are taken to protect the safety of the individual and others who may become involved.

Family members, caretakers, and friends are encouraged to make use of this program by completing the form (below) and meeting with Officer Jennifer Bellissimo to discuss the specifics of the form so that the most accurate information is available. This is a free, voluntary, and confidential program that is designed to better equip emergency personnel when responding to a crisis situation. The information is not for general release.

The form is available below both as a Word document and as a PDF file. If you'd like to enroll in the program, please fill out the form and submit it to the Chelmsford Police Department. A letter from the CPD explaining the program is also below.

New Library StoryWalk at Sunny Meadow

   February 4th, 2014 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

The Emperor Lays an EggTo help celebrate Chelmsford Winterfest 2014, the library installed a new StoryWalk at Sunny Meadow.

This time, the StoryWalk is the entire story of The Emperor Lays an Egg, by Brenda Z. Guiberson. All of the pages have been laminated and placed on sign posts along the trail, so kids and adults alike can read the story as they hike the trail.

Even if you didn't make it to Sunny Meadow during Winterfest, don't worry - the StoryWalk will be up for the next few months, so enjoy it whenever you can (and however many times you like!).

This StoryWalk is located at Sunny Meadow Community Garden, at the end of Robin Hill Road near Route 27/Kate's Corner in South Chelmsford.

Thank you for the Friends of the Library for funding our StoryWalk project, and to the COSS volunteers for their work in the field. Also, thanks to Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, for coming up with the original StoryWalk idea!
