The Central Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (CEMLEC) is a non-profit corporation consisting of over 80 municipal law enforcement agencies and one county Sheriff's Office that assist each other through a mutual aid agreement. CEMLEC covers a land area of over 1,600 square miles and serves a population in excess of 750,000 citizens across four counties. CEMLEC augments local departments by providing specialized services, equipment and personnel such as SWAT, Motor Unit, Collision Reconstruction, K9 and Special Services.
To assist CEMLEC in their mission the AFRD provides Emergency Medical Services (EMS) support to two of the teams.
One member of the department serves as a SWAT Medic. This member has attended the part time police academy and is a sworn Special Police Officer for the Town of Auburn. The member has trained and has qualified in weapons and tactics and is an armed member of the SWAT Team. The medic makes entry with the team to assist injured SWAT Officers in the hot zone in the event they are injured.
The AFRD also has a Motor Unit that serves the CEMLEC Motor Officers and is embedded into the unit. Three department members all at the Advanced Life Support (ALS) level have attended the 80 hour Police Motorcycle Training School at Northwestern University, Center for Public Safety in Weymouth MA. The EMS Motorcycle rides with the Motor Unit on missions to provide ALS treatment to injured motor officers and the public. The unit rides a 2017 Harley Davidson FLHTP that is equipped at the Advanced Level.
