Likewise, if you ever have any concerns about your neighborhood or community PLEASE come share them with us. The only way we get better is through feedback from our community! It is an honor to serve this city and we hope to continue building a positive relationship with each one of our citizens! Again, thank you all for your support!

Hello, friends and neighbors! We would like to remind everyone that school is back in session as of Tuesday, August 23rd. Buses will be running from about 7 to 8:00 am and from 3:20 to about 4:30 on most afternoons. (earlier on Fridays.) Remember, if a school bus is stopped and has its flashing red lights on, you MUST stop and not pass it. There will typically be a Stop sign extended on the driver's side as well. You may not pass the bus for any reason until the lights are off. State law also requires that you yield to Pedestrians and Crossing guards in crosswalks. Flashing lights on a pole at the beginning of a school zone mean slow down to 20 mph or less until you get to the next speed limit sign. And, as always, pay attention to all traffic signs and signals and watch out for kids!! Let's all have a great school year!!!

Please help North Platte Police locate this missing girl. She was last seen March 16th. She and her dog are presumed to be together. Any information please contact the numbers on the fliers. Please share this and help get the word out to bring Gracie home!

We have received complaints of an active scam currently circulating in our area. According to reports you will receive a call from a female with a foreign accent stating she works for the Torrington Police Department. She will then tell you an officer is going to come and arrest you if you do not pay her over the phone. They are able to duplicate our phone number so it appears you are getting an actual call from our Dispatch Center. However, This is a scam! TPD will never call you and request payment over the phone. Again, at no time will anyone from our agency call you and request a credit card payment. If in doubt, hang up and call our dispatch center at 307-532-7001! Please help us spread the word!

After a few inquires about the CodeRED calls that were made this past weekend, a couple of things need to be cleared up. TPD does not own CodeRED. CodeRED is the system we use to keep our citizens informed of important information. For those worried about answering the phone and having it be a scam call there are only 3 phone numbers our system will use. They are as follows; 1-800-566-9780, 1-866-419-5000, and 1-855-969-4636. Also, all weather related calls are done automatically through the National Weather Service. Also, TPD cannot make weather or emergency related reports pop up on your cell phone. Those happen through your cell phone provider. Any questions please call or stop in and ask. Thank you!

We have received numerous phone calls about the CodeRED message we issued earlier. Rest assured there is nothing wrong with Torrington's water. The recent storm has taxed our waste water system and it needs time to recover before accepting anymore. Please refrain from using showers, sinks, and flushing toilets. We estimate by around 11 P.M. the system will have recovered enough to accept more water. You may still use the water to drink! Thank you for your cooperation!

On October 1, 1961 President John F. Kennedy signed a law designating May 15th as Peace Officer Memorial day, "To pay tribute to the law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and to voice our appreciation for all those who currently serve on the front lines of the battle against crime..." Today, just like every year before members of the community along with local law enforcement agencies gathered in front of the Police Department to pay respect to the officers who have gone before us. Police Chief Sharp addressed the group quoting Paul Harvey's "What is a Policeman." Chaplain Bryan then said a prayer asking for continued safety for our officers. The gathering happens by the flag pole, which is also the memorial for Lt. Harley Mark, who gave his life in the line of duty September 7, 1993. If you walk into our department you will see his picture and badge on display over our dispatch center. Ask any of the "old timers" about him and prepare to get an ear full of stories that will make you understand how Lt. Mark was a cop's cop! It becomes quite obvious that it was not how Lt. Mark died, it was how he lived that made him a true hero. We are honored to have hosted Lt. Mark's family today. Visit the PD at any time and it will not take you long to realize Lt. Mark's memory lives on, not only through these memorials but through his daughter Code Enforcement Officer Cearns. While we grieve the loss every fallen officer this week, rest assured we also find renewed motivation and dedication to continue serving this great community with great care. If you see one of your Officers out and about this week take a second to thank them for all of their hard work. From everyone here at the Torrington Police Department, we are proud to serve you and this community!

Please share the word! We would love to hire quality dispatchers to help serve our community!

TPD Officers responded to a rash of auto burglaries this past weekend. It appears the suspects took advantage of unlocked vehicle doors and open garages. Please be extra vigilant in making sure your items are secure so you don't become a victim! Take important belongings out of your vehicle and lock your doors. If you see someone suspicious in your neighborhood please call us and make a report! 307-532-7001

TPD appreciates the help we receive each time we post these. As a reminder, these are local warrants so please do not contact other agencies about these people. Also, feel free to shoot us a message if you know the where about of any of these individuals. All messages can be kept confidential and you may remain anonymous if you desire. We thank you in advance for the help!

We receive many requests for service via our Facebook page. Most of these go unanswered or are severely delayed in response time. TPD uses this page for social media purposes in an attempt to show our community what our department is up to. While at times we do post information and seek help via this page it is not manned 24/7. Our dispatchers are busy enough without the distractions of social media. If you have found yourself here to submit a complaint or request service. Please visit http://torringtonpolice.org/index.php/submit-a-tip and an officer will be contacting you momentarily! Again, this is an unsupervised page and you need to contact the department directly for service!

Thank you for your patience.

Please take time to thank them if you see them out and about! Back Row from left to right: Sergeant Rostad and Officer Ringrose. Middle Row: Sergeant Scoleri, EWC Resource Officer Reed, Officer Sandlian, and TPD Chief Sharp. Front Row: Campbell County Deputy Cody, Officer Miller, Lingle Chief Moen, School Resource Officer Servantez, and Ft. Laramie Chief Knollman.

We have had multiple complaints of a jolly fellow named St. Nick and possibly Santa Clause around the area this evening! Anyone with information please call TPD immediately!

Torrington Police Department's 3rd annual Shop with A Cop was a huge success! Children were picked up by the Torrington Volunteer Fire Department and delivered safely to Bomgaars where Officers were waiting to help them pick out gifts for their families! We were well represented with Officers from the Torrington Police Department, Lingle Police Department, Fort Laramie Police Department, and we were lucky enough to have a Deputy from Campbell County Sheriff's Office join in the fun this year! Please enjoy the photos! Like, share, and tag as you wish. TPD wishes to thank all agencies that participated, anyone who has donated or bought raffle tickets to help fund this year’s event, and every business which donates to the Torrington DARE program. Our deepest thanks this year, however, goes out to the employees of Bomgaars that patiently waited on and assisted us with the event. The Torrington Elk’s Club for hosting our gift wrapping and all the unseen volunteers who assisted the children in wrapping their gifts! If you have and questions or want to learn how to assist in next year’s event please contact the Torrington Police Department by calling 307-532-7001 or reaching out to us on our Facebook page!

The Christmas season is upon us! We would like to remind all of our friends that, while you are enjoying all the festivities of the season, please remember to lock your vehicles and houses. Thieves and burglars know that everyone is likely to have lots of gifts in their homes and vehicles this time of year and see it as an opportunity. So lock up, be vigilant and don't let criminals ruin your holidays. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
