Legendary Trooper:

Retired Sgt. Lloyd Williams began working in dispatch before starting his State Police career in 1966. Williams was promoted to Sgt. and worked as a patrol supervisor at the Orono barracks. His interest in dogs would become a big part of his State Police legacy. Sgt. Williams made many trips to headquarters to speak with and provide a demonstration to Colonel Weeks and the Command Staff about the benefit of starting a K-9 program. In 1980 because of Williams’s vision, the decision was made for the Maine State Police to provide statewide K-9 coverage. Sgt. Williams was instrumental in building up the K9 Unit in the State Police as well as Municipal and County Agencies. Sgt. Williams would become the lead trainer for eight K-9 patrol schools with K-9 teams from local, county, and State Police attending. When Sgt. Williams retired in 1987 the State Police had 18 K-9 teams throughout the State of Maine.

Colonel’s Award: 

In 2016 Retired Detective David Preble took on a herculean task researching and identifying every single Maine State Police Trooper since MSP’s inception in 1921. Det. Preble searched State Archives, MSP records, and personal libraries. He also conducted interviews with current and former members and then compiled official documents and verified data into an official record. Det. Preble’s work resulted in the assembly of two four-inch binders with information and rosters on every MSP hire and training class, including legislative documents and photos when available. Due to that extensive research and identification of every Trooper, past, and present, Det. Preble was also able to assign chronological badge numbers to every person who took the oath of office of a Maine State Trooper.

Bravery Award:

Tactical Team Members on October 21, 2020, the Tactical Team responded to Rockland to assist Rockland Police Department with a hostage situation. A man had taken his mother hostage inside her apartment and barricaded the door. For over an hour, entry team members stood in a hallway only feet from the apartment as they listened to repeated threats from the suspect that he would kill them and his mother if they entered. Other team members evacuated residents that we're unable to leave because of mobility issues. When the suspect’s threats to his mother began to escalate, they made their decision to use an explosive breaching charge and a hostage rescue was made. The suspect was in fact using his mom as a human shield… which he had bound with chains on her hands and feet. The entry stunned the suspect just enough to free his hands for a second…that’s when the team was able to get him into custody without using deadly force and save the hostage.

The response was an enormous risk for the tac teams’ own lives while dealing with a barricaded door, an aggressive armed suspect who is using a hostage as a human shield.

Investigative Findings Regarding MSP Trooper John Darcy

From the desk of Col. John Cote, Chief, Maine State Police

In August of 2020, the Maine State Police was contacted by U.S. Attorney’s Office personnel notifying our agency of concerning comments made by Trooper John Darcy as he prepared to stop a vehicle on the Maine Turnpike.  That stop resulted in the seizure of 141 grams of cocaine powder, 880 counterfeit prescription pills, and a loaded firearm.  The operator was later charged by the U.S. Attorney’s Office with a federal felony level crime of drug trafficking.  Based on the report from the U.S. Attorney’s office, our agency began an internal review of that stop and the comments made by Trooper Darcy.   

After the public release of the video from the stop and several media stories, the U.S. Attorney’s Office dismissed the charges related to the stop.  Subsequently, State Representative Jeffrey Evangelos made a formal complaint alleging serial racial profiling by Trooper Darcy. 

An extensive investigation was conducted over several months by our Office of Professional Standards in consultation with the Attorney General’s Office.  The investigation included several interviews and a thorough examination of over 1,000 traffic stops conducted by Trooper Darcy.  The investigation resulted in no evidence of any pattern of targeting of motorists based on race, or any other trait common to a protected group.  

Bias-based profiling and/or any other discriminatory practice by members of our agency is strictly 
prohibited.  This includes traffic stops based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, socioeconomic status, age, national origin, or ancestry.  Our agency also requires that persons are only stopped or detained when legal authority exists to do so and that members of our agency base their enforcement actions solely on a person’s conduct and behavior or specific suspect information.
