We hope everyone has a safe evening of trick or treating tonight. We will have extra staff on duty patrolling and checking to make sure that those registered sex offenders that are required to do so are complying with the statutory requirements pertaining to Halloween. Stay warm and safe.

Today’s Prescription Drug Take was a success, with 115 pounds of medications being dropped off at our collection point. Excellent work!! Thanks to Ashland and southern Boone County for taking part in this important effort to see that these drugs are properly disposed of.

Rest In Peace, brother. Blessed are the peacemakers.....

In response to a citizen's complaint, we thought we would post the following PSA: Ashland City Ordinance 20.1030 reads as follows: Where sidewalks are provided, it shall be unlawful for any pedestrian to walk along and upon an adjacent roadway. Where sidewalks are provided, any pedestrian walking along and upon a highway (streets are "highway's" by definition) shall, when practicable, walk only on the left side of the roadway or its shoulder facing traffic which may approach from the opposite direction. Please remember that sidewalks were put in place at great taxpayer expense, and they need to be used when available. We care about the safety of all citizens and visitors who come to our community. Put the infrastructure that you have paid for to use.

This bicycle was wheeled into the police department by a concerned citizen yesterday afternoon (10/2/17) after being found abandoned. If it’s yours, please arrange to come to APD and pick it up during regular business hours. Try to bring some form of proof of ownership with you.

Dense fog advisory for Boone County until 10:00 a.m. Don't forget your headlights (on low beam). Drive safely.

We will NEVER forget this day.

This coming Saturday (9/9/17) is the annual citywide garage sale. We expect there to be a much higher than normal volume of traffic in town. Please be aware of that and use extra caution. Also please do NOT put any signage in either of the round-a-bouts. Any signs put there will be removed by law enforcement and stored safely until the owners can retrieve them later. Whether you're selling or bargain hunting, enjoy the day.

Last night was a dangerous night for law enforcement here in the United States. Six law enforcement officers were shot in the line of duty; two officers in Florida died from the wounds they sustained. But the other officers didn't pack up their equipment and go home. Instead they geared up and relentlessly pursued the murderer who killed their brother, apprehending him without incident. And the officers scheduled to work the following shift came to work at the beginning of their respective tours of duty. Though I'm sure they were concerned, worried, and grieving, they continued to serve and protect their citizens the same as they do every day. Please remember this night the next time you see a law enforcement officer. You never know how their shift might end. And neither do they.

From our Callaway County law enforcement partners.

As we are sure you are aware by now, there is going to be a total solar eclipse occurring this coming Monday, 08-21-2017, with "totality" estimated to occur at approx. 1:12 p.m. locally. Best estimates are that between 300,000 and 1.3 million people will be traveling to Missouri to witness this event. Some are sure to be in Ashland to see it, and may begin arriving in the area over the weekend. If you are the owner of privately owned property that you think people might park on, and you do NOT want people to do so, we are advising you that you take the necessary steps to block your property off from public access. We do not anticipate that we will be available to assist you with these types of issues on private property immediately before, during, or after this event. Though we will have additional staff on duty, we anticipate being busy with heavy traffic volume and calls related to it. If you require a police response, please be patient and expect a longer than usual response time. We WILL get there. If you have to travel on Monday, anticipate much heavier than normal traffic on streets and highways. Particularly on major highways such as I-70 and US Hwy 63, but be aware of this concern on lesser used roadways also. Remember to NOT look directly at the sun without using "eclipse glasses," and even with them do not look for very long. Doing so can cause damage to your eyes, including blindness. Though it's a historic event for many, it's certainly not worth that. Please enjoy the moment, drive safely if you travel, remain patient and stay calm with others.
