Department ID October 1990

May 1988, I was hired by the Town of Rumford Police Department
as a Reserve Police Officer. I began working on a full-time part-time basis
upon completing the Maine Criminal Justice Academy Reserve Training,
Dewey Robinson, the Police Chief at the time asked if I would be interested
in running in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Maine
and raising some money for Special Olympics Maine. I agreed and have been
volunteering and assisting ever since. I currently hold a position on the Executive
Council for Special Olympics in the State of Maine.

D.A.R.E. America

Department ID 1995

In September of 1993, I was trained to be a D.A.R.E. Instructor.
Our D.A.R.E. Program is taught to fifth grade students from
the Towns of Rumford / Mexico / Roxbury / Byron and Hanover. They attend either
Rumford Elementary School, Meroby Elementary School or
the St. Athanasius & St. John / Holy Savior School.
Prior to the year 2000 it was taught at the 6th grade level.

I consider myself extremely lucky to have been chosen to teach
the D.A.R.E. Program in the Rumford Area Schools,
because I feel it is important to educate the youth of the dangers
of Drugs and Violence. D.A.R.E. is the most
satisfying part of my job. It's nice to enter the school in a police uniform
and have the youth happy to see me. I served from 1996-2000 on the
State of Maine board of directors as Secretary/Treasurer for
the Maine D.A.R.E. Officers Association.

Hall of Fame 1998 Bob Bell Award 2012
Doug with Bell Award

On March 26th, 1998, I was honored with being one of first few officers
inducted into the Maine Law Enforcement Torch Run Hall of Fame.
I was inducted for my over ten years of dedicated service to the
Torch Run and for helping to further the goals of Special Olympics Maine.

In March, 2012, I was honored with the highest
award a Law Enforcement Officer can receive for
my (25)-Twenty Five Years volunteering and raising
money for Special Olympics Maine. I was
presented the Bob Bell Award in South Portland, ME.

This was a very special day for me and one I'll always remember.

Volunteer and donate if you can!!!!

Special Olympics Maine has been a great pleasure of mine,
both while representing the Rumford Police Department and
volunteering my own time. Please Support your local
Special Olympics. Attend some of their games....
You'll never forget the experience...

Ptl. Maifeld's 2003 Cop Card

In 1996, I worked with the Maine Bureau of Highway
to sponsor the Rumford Police Department
Cop Card Program. The Program was a great success that a second
series was released in 1999 and a third series introducing the
newer officers plus myself and Sgt. Tracey Higley as the
D.A.R.E. Officers was release in October 2003.
An additional Series with even newer officers was released in 2006.
Check out my dual agency card with Rumford PD and Oxford SO.
This card was released in 2011 to be given out to all the youth
I meet while visiting schools in the Oxford County area.

I am an avid Cop Card Collector.
On occasion, I also collect Patches. E-mail me,
If you or your police department have Cop Cards,
I'd love to have them in my collection.
E-mail me for a trade
or if you want to get rid of cards
you can send them to me at
150 River Street, Rumford, Maine 04276-2029.
I currently have over 14,500 Cop Cards from all 50 States,
most Canadian Provinces, England, New Zealand, Holland, Germany,

My "Cop-Card" Messages & Safety Tip:

1) Don't fall victim to peer pressure,
dare to control your own destiny,
because the consequences of your choices
can always be positive.
2) Remember you have the POWER!!!
No one can force you to do something
that is wrong or dangerous.
Only you have that POWER!!!!
3) Your goals are never out of reach as long
as you continue to work hard to achieve them.
4) Seat belts save lives, buckle up for safety!

D.A.R.E. Officer
