A Nor’easter will be impacting our fair village tomorrow. Rain is expected to start in the area early Saturday morning and continue through early Sunday morning. We should expect 2-4” of rain, which could be very heavy at times. Wind gusts could reach 60MPH. Coastal flooding and power outages are possible. If driving, be aware that pooling of water on the roads is very possible and visibility will be reduced during heavy rains. Slow down and allow greater stopping distances. Assume any downed utility lines are live wires and call your utility company. If a downed wire or tree is a hazard, dial 9-1-1.

Watch out for ghouls and goblins in the area of the Bourne Community Building on Main St tonight from 5:30-6:30 PM. The Bourne Recreation Department will be hosting its annual Trunk or Treat. All are invited!!!

By popular demand, here is a link to the live cam for the construction of the new Canal B&B!

This is the last time we let Minion Mel paint the undercover van....But we will give him 5 points for creativity...

It’s great to see construction on the new Cape Cod Canal personal transport tubes underway. These will most assuredly be a fun and fast way of crossing the canal during next summer’s peak traffic season.

The only thing Minion Mel like more than donuts is cookies. Thank you soooo much to the folks from Cookies for a Cop! Your support is very much appreciated. Your care packages even included a Kong for K9 Dutch!!!!

TRAFFIC ALERT: For those traveling in the Buzzards Bay Area Monday thru Thursday this week, be prepared for some delays. Crews will be paving the Route 6/28 Bypass 7A-5P. This will result in lane closures. Please plan accordingly for your commute, be mindful of any lane changes, and reduce your speed.

Question of the Day: If you just leave your hazard lights on at all times does that prevent you from being stopped for failing to use your directional?!?!?!

Praying for the swift recovery of the Massachusetts State Police Trooper that was stabbed multiple times yesterday during multi-agency / state vehicle pursuit. Be strong my brother....we have your watch until you can recover and continue your patrol!

Doesn’t matter where you are on the Cape or the time of’s always Paradise!!!! Comment with where on the Cape Minion Mel snapped this gem today...

It’s great to see the foundation coming along for the new Canal B&B!!!

This could have ended so differently. Thankfully this officer was able to process everything that was going on and make it so these kids were able to go home. Parents, please talk to your kids about how playing with these realistic looking “toys” can have seriously grave consequences!!! #WeCare

PRESS RELEASE FROM MV CRASH INTO POST OFFICE LOCATION: 220 Main Street Buzzards Bay, MA DATE/TIME: 10/15/2018 1240 hours The Bourne Police Department received a 911 call reporting a motor vehicle crash into the Post Office building on Main Street. The first officers on scene reported the vehicle was halfway inside the building in the lobby/counter area. Officers determined the 79 year old Bourne man had accelerated out of control while pulling into a parking space in front of the building. The vehicle, a 2005 Toyota Camry convertible, had jumped the sidewalk curb in front of the building traveling through the front wall into the lobby. No customers were inside the lobby at the time of the crash, and Post Officer workers were safe behind the counter. The operator was evaluated by paramedics at the scene and released without injury. He will be charged with operating to endanger and an Immediate Threat has been filed with the RMV.

BPD and BFD on scene of Car VS Post Office...thankfully no injuries.

We should have known what to expect when Minion Mel offered to fill in for the Forensic Artist and then told us he was out of paper....

The Bourne Police Department would like to congratulate the Honorable Dianne Calderwood, resident of Sagamore Beach, on her installation today as Postmaster of the Sagamore Beach, MA Post Office. It makes the community proud when a local resident can be so successful and dedicated to public service. At her installation ceremony today, Postmaster Calderwood presented Lt. Brandon Esip and Fire Chief Norman Sylvester Jr with the “Honoring First Responders” stamp, which was unveiled earlier this year.

Congrats to the BFD. Final score 12-11. See you next year!!!! Thx to Buzzard Bay Men’s Softball League for set long up the field!
