On April 28, 2018, the Verona Police Department and Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will coordinate a Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative throughout Wisconsin. The focus is on removing potentially dangerous pharmaceutical substances from our state's medicine cabinets and preventing them from going into our water supply. This one-day effort will continue to bring focus to the issue of pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. This is a great opportunity for law enforcement agencies to host a take back event, and/or safely dispose of medications collected in prescription drug drop boxes. No businesses allowed. All waste pharmaceuticals must be generated by a household. The Prescription Drug Take-Back Day goal is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications. Unused or expired medicine should never be flushed or poured down the drain. Water reclamation facilities are not designed to remove all of them and trace amounts of pharmaceuticals are showing up in rivers and lakes around the world. Bring: Prescription (controlled and non-controlled) and over-the-counter medications, ointments, inhalers, patches, non-aerosol sprays, creams, vials and pet medications. Please empty all pills into a clear plastic baggie, prior to the event, to assist with the ease of disposal. Prescription liquids and creams must be in their original packaging material. Do Not Bring: Illegal drugs, needles/sharps, mercury thermometers, aerosol cans, bio-hazardous materials (anything containing a bodily fluid or blood), flares, personal care products (shampoo, soaps, lotions, sunscreens, etc...), household hazardous waste (paint, pesticides, chemicals, oil, or gas) or acids. Non-prescription, personal hygiene products cannot be accepted. This program is anonymous and all efforts will be made to protect the anonymity of individuals disposing of medications. No questions or requests for identification will be made.

After we posted our most recent cover photo, we received a message from Andrea Bleggi from Verona, Italy!! He was kind enough to share the below photos and message. Very cool!! "More and less the same happens in Verona, Italy. Greetings from one of the officers from Italian State Police of Verona!" "Another point of view, on our little Colosseum called "Arena".

As many of our page followers are aware, there was a very serious, fatal car crash on USH 151 earlier this morning. As a result, our agency has seen multiple social media posts and news stories showing “viewer submitted” photographs and videos of the crash. While these videos and photographs may easily be described by some as “cool”, “interesting”, “incredible”, or “shocking”, we want to remind everyone of a few things. Almost two dozen individuals were injured and one person lost their life. If you were a family member or friend of one of those involved, ask yourself, would you want to learn that someone you care about was hurt or killed via a social media post? Additionally, dozens of emergency first responders and tow truck operators were on scene of this incident trying to help those involved. The action of taking a photograph or video while driving past the scene not only endangers the lives of the first responders, but also your life and the lives of the other motorists driving around you. Car crashes such as this one have an incredible impact on those involved. Please think twice before capturing a tragedy on your phone and throwing it out on social media. Take time to think about how your actions could negatively impact the lives of others.

The Verona Police Department is currently assisting the Dane County Sheriffs Office with a multivehicle crash on US Highway 151 at Highway 69.

As a result of the crash, several streets with in the city of Verona are also experiencing heavy delays. Multiple officers have been deployed to different traffic locations to assist with traffic flow. Please remember to slow down and be patient. Our thoughts are with those who were involved in the crash.

The City of Verona Police and Fire Departments will be participating in a statewide communications training exercise on February 6-8, identified as SIMCOM.

We are participating in the Capitol Area OWI Task Force; a DOT funded traffic grant. Typically, extra officers are working on Friday and Saturday nights and are specifically conducting traffic enforcement. Last night, our officers made 3 OWI arrests.

Thank you for stopping by the Verona Police Department today, Liam's Coins for Law Enforcement! We had a great visit, and I hope you enjoyed the tour. It's great that you spend your free time visiting law enforcement officers to express your support and appreciation. Keep up the great work!

#NightlyLockUp Do everything you can to make your property less of a target. Nearly all theft from automobile reports filed with the Verona Police Department are a result of the owner not locking their door. The same holds true for burglaries to garage areas. Keep ‘em closed, keep ‘em locked!

NOTICE TO RESIDENTS: Local media outlets reported earlier today that the Verona Police Department is investigating reports of numerous vehicles stolen this past weekend. To clarify, this information is accurate, but we want to notify residents that this actually occurred in Verona New Jersey, not Verona Wisconsin. Although we took no reports over the weekend of stolen automobiles, this is an excellent opportunity to remind residents to be proactive. Always lock your doors, take your keys with you, and never leave your vehicle running and unattended.
