New Braintree Police Department News

On behalf of Chief of Police James Ayotte, the men of the New Braintree Police Department stand with our brothers and sisters in the Auburn Police Department with great sadness. Our grief and prayers go out to the family of Police Officer Ron Tarentino, Jr.. On Saturday May 21, Officer Tarentino paid the ultimate price with his life while protecting the community of Auburn. He was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop. We also recognize the brave and courageous officers from Auburn PD, Oxford PD and members of the Massachusetts State Police STOP team and Tactical EMS personnel who for hours hunted and found the dangerous man who shot and killed Officer Tarentino. The coward, George Zambrino was shot and killed while lying in wait. He sprang from a closet shooting a member of the MSP STOP team before being neutralized. That brave officer will survive his injuries.

Maine State Trooper Dennis Quint was very lucky to survive in his marked cruiser after striking a large moose in Aroostock County. His 2013 Ford Interceptor was a total loss. Trooper Quint received only minor injuries. This photo provided by Maine State Police.
