So! old man winter might rear it's ugly head at us in the next day or two. Here is some great tips for us all. Thanks and enjoy the weather. As always be safe, be vigilant and drive with care.

Recently the city has been experiencing vehicle and other break-ins around town. We do have a few suspects but still need the communities help. These losers have made their way around various parts of town but the majority of incidents have occurred on the eastern side. Some things people can do to minimize the chance of being a victim are as follows: Remove items and lock your vehicle even when it is parked in your driveway - and utilize any outside lighting you have available. Motion lights are relatively inexpensive now and can be hard wired in or solar powered. Please report any suspicious activity regardless of how insignificant it may appear. Many cases require several pieces of the puzzle to put something together, however, we need something to work with. We can sort through information and use what we need or dispose of what's not needed. Thank you, Chief K.
