A New Program

The City Police Dept. has been working on a new program that will allow victims to report certain misdemeanor crimes online. According to the PD, it should be up and running on Thursday, Nov. 6.

This is being done to free up more time for patrolling when certain crimes do not require a police officer, such as those not immediately occuring and where there is no evidence. I suspect (pun intended) a good example would be waking up and finding that your lawn ornaments have been stolen.

It is voluntary, so if you're more comfortable with calling, you can do so. And never use it for an emergency. In that case, ALWAYS call 911.

KUDOS to the Police Department!
