Ashland Police Department News

Just a reminder that Ashland City Hall will be closed tomorrow (1/15/18) in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. City Hall will be open at 08:00 a.m. on Tuesday. Ashland Police officers will be available as usual. If police service is needed, please call Boone County Joint Communications at 311 (non-emergency) or 911 (emergency’s) as usual.

We are not trying to become weather forecasters, but feel you should be aware of drastically changing conditions later today (1/11/18). Rain is predicted for today, and temperatures will drop. This may result in sleet, freezing rain and maybe some light snow. This COULD affect your afternoon and evening commute, if it actually finds it’s way to our area. Please prepare and plan accordingly. And as always, please drive safely.

Today at shortly before 4:30 p.m. a phone call was received at Ashland City Hall (actually should’ve gone to 911) in which a citizen reported that a child had fallen through the ice and into the pond in the city park. Law enforcement responded and located the child, already out of the water. We are thankful beyond words that he was only cold. We would ask that you stress to your children the dangers of walking out onto the ice, especially on days when the temperatures have warmed and caused the ice to thaw somewhat. Please stay safe.

Please use caution while driving and WALKING this morning. The dense fog and cold temperatures have created ice on some surfaces and getting around could be hazardous for a while. Ashland Public Works are addressing the streets now. Sidewalks could remain slippery for a bit though. Be safe!

Tomorrow (1/7/18) central Missouri will be under a Winter Weather Advisory. Indications are that we could receive a tenth of an inch of ice (higher accumulations possible in some areas) and possibly a dusting of snow. I’m sure we all remember our last weather event involving a minor accumulation of ice. It came without any warning, and it created havoc for the public and those of us who serve. But this time we’ve been alerted. Please prepare and plan accordingly. As always, drive safely (and should this occur, don’t drive if you don’t have to).

Once again it is New Years Eve. The single biggest party night of the entire year. If you choose to consume intoxicants tonight, please make good choices by not driving after drinking. It might be bitter cold outside, but it’s warm in the back seat of a patrol car. Take our word for it and don’t find out firsthand. Law enforcement WILL be actively looking for impaired drivers. We wish you all a very Happy New Year. Please be safe.

Please don’t forget to bring your cats/dogs indoors. It’s going to be bitter cold over the next several days, and worse at night. Remember: if you’re cold when outside, then so are they.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.

A heartfelt thank you too all who have dropped off baked goods and thoughtful gifts to the police department and city hall staff this holiday season. It means a lot to all of us that you take the time to think of us during Christmas.

Anyone know who these dogs belong to? They are at City Hall. The big dog was found at the Primary School and the little guy was found right behind city hall. Please help them find their home!

Never forget the sacrifices made for our beloved nation on this day.
