Brunswick Police Chief Scott Stewart on the WCME Midcoast Morning Buzz

About This Project

While Brunswick has not seen threats to public officials on the scale of those that have been lodged in recent days against Secretary of State Shenna Bellows, the chief told us on today’s WCME Midcoast Morning Buzz that there have indeed been threats against town councilors and school board members.

That revelation was part of a wide-ranging conversation ranging from women’s hockey to the crime of swatting– which happens when pranksters make illegal and dangerous fake emergency calls in hopes of sending armed police to raid a person’s home.

The chief also had some winter reminders for us.

If you missed it on the radio, you can hear it all right here–in two parts.
