Nope...the only cop shop numbers I still know by heart are the regular
morning beat calls I used to make from WCAP on Saturday mornings, and
Newton certainly wasn't part of that list. (From memory: Lowell, Dracut,
Chelmsford, Tewksbury, Tyngsboro, Pelham NH and possibly Andover...)
And that last one's a trick question: 888, if memory serves, is
Sandwich, which had been moved to 508 by '94. I don't think it had been
reassigned in 617 at that point. It's now a cell prefix, but I had to go
look that one up.
Now ask me where my keys are... :-)
