The police department hopes everyone has a very Merry Christmas and we want to take a moment to pass on an important tip in dealing with the aftermath of all the gifts. Many of you will have to get rid of the empty game console boxes, TV boxes, and numerous other types of empty packages. Instead of simply sitting the empty boxes out by the curb for Public Works to pick up, we encourage people to take the empty boxes to a recycling center or break the boxes down and intermingle it with your other trash.
By putting the empty boxes out by the curb, you are advertising there are expensive TV’s, game consoles, and other items in your home; thieves pay attention to these things and we don’t want any of our citizens to become a victim of crime.
We hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.
Chief Dennis Turner
