May 20th, 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,

if I would be interested in running in the Law

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
then 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.

Additional Series were released in 2006 with newer
officers and a full set in 2016. 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 met 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 16,000 Cop Cards from all
50 States, most Canadian Provinces, England,
New Zealand, Holland, Germany, Puerto Rico and Spain.
This is one of my Cop Cards. You can view all the

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
