Traffic Enforcement “Thanksgiving Safe Arrival” The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) will underwrite overtime enforcement efforts through a grant for the Thanksgiving Safe Arrival traffic enforcement campaign. Starting Monday through Sunday (November 20 - 26, 2017) The Galena Police Department will join the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, Kansas Highway Patrol and many other agencies across the state to help insure the safe arrival of family and friend to their destinations throughout the holiday weekend. According to KDOT, the Thanksgiving holiday period outranks all other major holidays in the number of crashes that impairment is cited as a factor. Failure of adults to simply buckle up or to insure child passengers are properly restrained is a contributing factor in severe and/or disabling injuries to include death of passengers involved in crashes. Drivers and passengers in Kansas are twice as likely to be seriously injured or killed in crashes from being unrestrained than ones that are properly restrained. They go on to state that occupants in alcohol-or other drug related crashes are more than 2 ½ times more likely to be injured or killed. Arrange a ride with a non-drinking acquaintance if you are plaining on drinking any amount of at all. Drivers, always wear your seatbelt and don’t move the vehicle until each person riding with you is buckled in. This is your best defense against death and injury, it’s their best defense, and it’s the law. You will live with the consequences – good or bad – the rest of your life. By always following these simple rules, you can preserve life – maybe your life – and certainly your cash. You can safely arrive.”

As a nation we are blessed beyond deserts with selfless men and women who heard the call to muster and stood in our defense at home and abroad. To all of our local Veterans. Thank You for your service! The Galena Police Department is proud to have former and active members of the military within our ranks and would like to take a moment to publicly recognize them this Veteran’s Day.

-Sergeant’s Safety Tip When you are travelling north bound at 7th and Main, it is the tendency of most east bound turning drivers to courteously pull to the right before executing the turn. Unfortunately the next northbound vehicle will inevitably pull up right to the line, or past it, causing your field of vision to deteriorate. Naturally drivers will creep forward to see better. This has on several occasions caused many accidents in this intersection. The second circumstance which tends to happen is a north bound driver will pull up to the line correctly to initiate an east bound turn, simultaneously another driver will pull to the right to initiate an east bound turn as well. The first driver will be focused to the west monitoring traffic and execute their turn striking the second vehicle. Main Street is a two lane roadway with one north and one south bound lane. The widened area is simply an easement for large commercial vehicles to be able to execute the east bound turn without having to encroach on the westbound traffic. If you have any questions on this, do not hesitate to contact us! Stay Safe! Sgt. Blaine Cornelius
