RUMFORD – Rumford Police Chief Stacy Carter has reported that Patrolman Matthew Noyes recently received his Maine motor vehicle inspection certification.
Noyes underwent several months of preparation to complete the course and test at no cost to the town of Rumford.
Officers regularly face motor vehicle safety violations that create dangerous travel situations. Because Noyes chose to educated himself, Carter said, it provides one more tool for patrol officers to work toward the department’s mission statement of providing a safe and secure town.
