We want to extend a very special thank you to Sofia from the VAHS Ad-Psych group (Psychological Foundation for Adolescent Minds) for dropping off the absolutely delicious cupcakes earlier tonight. Sofia and her mother also dropped off several red-frosted cupcakes at the Verona Fire Department! The purpose of this wonderful gesture is to focus on the positive effects one's mind has when giving back/providing for another. Thank you for the visit, Sofia! Sgt. Christensen shared a few with his co-workers 😂

The Verona Police Department is one of the many area drop-off locations for the Verona Area Warm Winters initiative. Dive into those hall closets and see if you have something to donate to such a great cause. The donations received last year were distributed in a matter of minutes.

A huge thank you to Mounds Pet Food Warehouse and Wisconsin Vest-A-Dog for such a generous donation to our K-9 program.

The Verona Police Department was, once again, privileged to team up with other local law enforcement agencies for a Law Enforcement Torch Run fundraiser for Special Olympics Wisconsin.

On Sunday, September 10th, the cycling portion of the IronMan Wisconsin Race will pass through Verona. City streets that will be affected by the race are: Whalen, S. Main, Locust, Bruce, Paoli, Northern Lights, Nine Mound, Cross Country, N. Main, E. Verona, and Old Hwy PB. The intersection of Old Hwy PB at Whalen should be avoided if possible as this is where the racers enter and leave the City, causing longer delays. The ramps at US-18/151 at Paoli Street (Hwy 69) will be closed during the duration of the race. It is recommended US-18/151 be accessed via W. Verona Ave at Epic Lane, as this location is unaffected by the race. The first cyclist usually enters the City on Whalen Rd. at approximately 7:15 a.m. The last cyclist will pass through the City no later than 5:30 p.m. We ask that motorists plan accordingly for delays. Verona officers will be stationed at various intersections during the race to aid with traffic flow. Intersection layouts are posted on the City of Verona Website. The link is posted in the comments below.

With the 2017-2018 school year begining this Friday, it is time for drivers to prepare themselves to be on the lookout for frequent school bus stops, for the loading and unloading of children.

We had our family picnic at Harriet Park this evening, which was a great time for everyone to relax and enjoy each other's company, as well as the company of each other's family members. We even had visits from our partners at the Verona Fire Department and Fitch-Rona Ems. They were kind enough to show the kids a fire truck and an ambulance, as well as play with the kids on the playground.
