Today's activity in Tremley Point is part of this exercise.

It's a common scam, and unfortunately it usually targets seniors. A utility worker shows up at your home unannounced to "check your water." He'll seem very nice, and may even ask you to help by checking the water downstairs or in back of the house... meanwhile he is really distracting you while another suspect burglarize your home! Before you let a utility worker into your home you should: Ask for ID Verify the service with Customer Service If you can't verify, or you're not sure, or if anything is suspicious, call the police Don't be fooled!

We are proud to announce that on July 23 - 27 we will host our first annual Youth Academy free of charge for students graduating grades 6 - 8. Mayor Derek Armstead praised the unique experience offered by The Academy as an important investment in our future. “For some of us, especially young people, it can sometimes be difficult to appreciate the challenges faced by our police officers,” said the Mayor. “Giving students an opportunity to understand why things are done a particular way, and letting them get to know officers on a personal level will undoubtedly have a tremendous impact in their lives and in our community for years to come.” “These children are the future of our community, said Police Chief David Hart. “By working with officers in unique settings like this we hope to build lasting, cooperative relationships and perhaps even inspire our next generation of police officers.” For more details please visit
