WPD officer tackles marathon as Alzheimer’s fundraising effort

March 28, 2015

WOONSOCKET – Running enthusiast and Woonsocket police Capt. Michael Lemoine counted his father-in-law as one of the most influential people in his life.

When Alzheimer’s claimed Driscoll’s life last year at the age of 82, Lemoine desperately wanted to do something to honor his memory and help other victims of the degenerative brain disorder.

Cumberland agrees to $2.5M liability payout

March 26, 2015

CUMBERLAND – The town’s liability insurer has agreed to pay $2.5 million to settle a police brutality suit brought against the Police Department by a woman who claims she suffered permanent leg injuries when she was arrested in 2010.

Excluding wrongful death cases, the settlement may be the largest on record in a police brutality claim, according to lawyer Ronald Resmini, the plaintiff’s lawyer.

“We can’t think of any other that exceeded it,” he said.

The settlement was reached after a lengthy period of negotiations between the parties, according to Resmini.
