Update; 09-28-2017

We have been asked about CEUs for LEO's in regards to this training.

For LEO's (Both MAP members and Non-MAP attendees) who are registered and confirmed to have attended the event, they will receive a certificate of completion from MAP by email with which to apply for CEU's from the MCJA.


See below from MCJA:

In reviewing the outline, it would appear the training would be eligible for elective training hours that an agency CEO could use toward training hours their officers need to accumulate throughout the year. Although this isn’t considered one of the approved mandatory training topics for 2018, the hours would certainly be eligible to apply toward the elective training hours.

Typically the officers would need to get advanced approval from their agencies and some documentation at the conclusion of the training (i.e. attendance roster) that they can bring back to the agency for their training records.

Richard Desjardins
Assistant Director, MCJA

Thank you and stay safe.

We will be sharing this information on MAP's Facebook page as well, however we wanted to make sure the information got to each of our units/members and interested people. If you have found that you have been affected by the Equifax breach here is the informatio  on freezing your accounts below. We have also attached a credit guide specific to your rights in Maine in helping you plan your next steps.

Stay safe, PG

File Freeze Information

Maine’s file freeze law permits FREE freezing and unfreezing of credit reports!

Maine consumers have the right to place a free file freeze on their credit reports with each of the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian and Trans Union.  The simplest (and most highly recommended) way to place a file freeze is by telephone. You can also freeze your files by visiting the credit reporting agencies’ secure websites, or by making your request(s) in writing to each agency. 

Below please find the specific file freeze contact information for each agency:


PO Box 105069
Atlanta, GA  30348


PO Box 4500
Allen, TX  75013

Trans Union1-888-909-8872

Trans Union
PO Box 2000
Chester, PA  19016

When you call, you will be connected to an automated service, and you will be asked to provide certain personal information. If you use the websites, the on-line service will also require you to disclose personal information. And if you write, you should provide the credit reporting agency with a signed letter, specifically asking for your file to be frozen due to Maine’s new file freeze law—and within that letter, you should list your Social Security number, date of birth, and your Maine mailing and street addresses.

Within a couple of weeks, each credit reporting agency will mail to you a letter containing your “unlock” code. Access to your credit report can be unlocked and relocked using that code. Your file freeze will remain in effect until you direct the credit reporting agency to unlock your file, either temporarily or permanently.

There is no fee for locking or unlocking your credit file under Maine law.

If you are a Maine consumer and you believe the credit reporting agencies are not complying with their legal requirements, write to us and we will contact those companies on your behalf. You may reach us at: Bureau of Consumer Credit Protection, SHS 35, Augusta ME 04333-0035; Toll Free for Maine residents only: 1-800-DEBT-LAW (1-800-332-8529);

Special Announcement

The message below is an appeal from Sgt. Ray Hunt, President of the Houston Police Officers' Union with an appeal for help from their brother and sister officers throughout the country. As many of you know, the state of Texas and in particularly, the city of Houston has been devastated in recent days by Hurricane Harvey.  Public Safety personnel have been working around the clock in efforts to rescue those trapped and in many cases, recovering bodies of those who have died. Among those are one of their own: 34 year veteran Sgt Steve Perez. Here is an excerpt from the San Antonio Express-News;

His wife warned him not to go. He insisted.

Steve Perez, a 34-year-veteran of the Houston Police Department, drowned in his patrol car in Harvey floodwaters, a tearful Chief Art Acevedo said Tuesday afternoon.

Perez, days shy of his 61st birthday, was in his patrol car driving to work downtown Sunday morning when he got trapped in high water.

Acevedo said Perez left home at 4 a.m. and spent more than two hours trying to get to his duty station in downtown Houston. When he could not find a path, he followed department protocol and tried to report to the nearest station, in Kingwood.

When he did not arrive for regular roll call Monday, officers called his wife, who said she had not seen him since Sunday. They narrowed their search to the Hardy Tollway and Beltway 8, Acevedo said 

Acevedo, with tears in his eyes, said officers believed they had found Perez on Monday night but could not recover his body.

The city of Houston and in particular, our brothers and sisters with the Police Department are in need of our financial support. If you or your MAP Unit are able to help, I urge you to do so.  There is a link attached where you can donate to help those officers who have been affected.  Thank you for your consideration and please help pass the word. 
Stay Safe, Paul G. 
To Our Brother & Sister Officers:
As you know the City of Houston is in the midst of a catastrophe like we have never seen before. The scope of the damage will not be determined for weeks, maybe longer. We have already lost so much including Sgt. Steve Perez, a 34-year veteran of the Houston PD, who drowned in his car trying to get to work at 4 am in the morning on Sunday, August 27th.
So many of you have reached out to ask how you can help and we are very grateful. Right now sending money to assist those officers who lost their homes and/or vehicles is the most helpful for us. We ask that you send donations to "Assist the Officer, Inc." a 501 (C)3 charity established 30 years ago in Houston to provide aid to law enforcement people during these kinds of disasters. ( There is a link on the site for Harvey Relief.
I can assure you that 100% of whatever you send will go directly to Houston-area law enforcement people who have suffered severe losses from the floods. Upon request we will be happy to provide you with a complete report on donations and expenditures if you need it.
We will keep you updated on the situation as it progresses and please accept our heartfelt thanks for whatever you can do to help us. If you have suffered a loss in this terrible incident, please just send your prayers.
Make your check out to: Assist the Officer, Inc. . Indicate on the check that the donation is for "Hurricane Harvey Relief for Law Enforcement"
Mail your check to 1600 State Street, Houston, TX 77007
Thank you and God bless.
Ray Hunt, President
Houston Police Officers' Union

Selected PSA

Listen to MAP Friends and Supporters Turquoise Willie Honor First Responders
"Over the last several years we have spent time traveling around the country performing from coast to coast. During our time we have gotten to know many first responders and have to become quite close. Thanks to these friendships we have been given a glimpse into their lives and the sacrifices they make every day without question. There have been several tribute songs written throughout the years, but we wanted to take their stories and connect them into a piece of work that acts almost as a mission statement to convey the pride and camaraderie that exists in this international fraternity."
