Spring Safety Message...


As winter comes to a close and we welcome spring, we remember that spring is a great time in our community – a new baseball season begins, spring break is approaching, and graduation draws near for our students.  We celebrate these good times in our community.

If our officers can help with traffic control or security monitoring at special events, please call us well in advance of a scheduled event.  If at all possible, we will help provide coverage for your special events.

We also want to remind you that with the warmer weather, children will be playing outdoors and near roadways.  Please take extra caution and slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods. And remember, children learn by watching us.  If you're traveling with a child, please model good driving habits, including:

  • Wear your seat belts.
  • Obey speed limits.
  • Teach them why it's important to slow near schools and neighborhoods.
  • Don't text while driving.
  • Make sure children are in the correct car seat.

Thank you for helping keep our roads and our citizens safe, and we look forward to the great times that spring will bring!
