Mass. officers meet with sister dept. from Russia
Telegram & Gazette
WORCESTER, Mass. — During a visit to Worcester with a group from Russia this week, Pushkin Police Chief Andrey Alexandrovich Litvinov seemed curious and perhaps a bit confused about some aspects of how the criminal justice system works here.
The police and fire officials from Worcester's sister city, Pushkin, Russia, touring the Worcester County Courthouse were intrigued and businesslike, firing all sorts of questions at District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. Chief Litvinov and others asked questions about a variety of issues, including who actually investigates crimes such as homicides and violent assaults, whether Worcester has its own highway patrol, and what constitutes illegal drugs.
