Event this Saturday

This week, school bus stop tragedies in Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi and Pennsylvania have left parents without children, and have drastically changed families, and communities across the country. Florence PD wants to ask drivers to please be alert and slow down when driving through school zones. Watch for children walking or assembling near bus stops. Children can sometimes dart into the street without looking for traffic. Please obey Colorado law regarding flashing lights on school buses: Yellow flashing lights indicate the bus is preparing to stop to load or unload children. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop their vehicles. Red flashing lights indicate the bus has stopped and children are getting on or off. Motorists must stop their cars and wait until the red lights stop flashing and the bus begins moving before they can start driving again. #safetyfirst #keepchildrensafe #obeyschoolbuslaws #donotpass

From City of Florence Municipal Center "City Hall is accepting donations for the FHS Pantry! Please bring donations to the front window of City Hall between now and December 12."

The Florence Police Department has partnered with an online web portal to allow citizens the ability to register their residences for patrol watches or vacation watches. Furthermore, if you have a patrol watch placed on your residence, notification will be sent to you by officers when they conduct a patrol watch at your residence. It will also allow you to complete a web request for a patrol officer to contact you reference a possible criminal activity you are observing. If you see problems with code enforcement, drug activity or problems with city streets or lights please follow the link below and fill out a form to allow us to follow up with the problems in the community and keep track of them. We will be pushing all of our patrol watches through this website. The direct link is below but you can also access the website through our Florence Police Department Website located at www.florencecolorado.org Remember if you are having an urgent issue please contact Dispatch at 719-784-3411

FYI

We want to warn our citizens of this scam that is going on. As a lot of you know, we have Kops 4 Kids that is affiliated with our department. We assure you, we do not solicit donations on the phone nor would we use the internet. Kops 4 Kids hold several fundraising events throughout the year that we use for our various community outreach events. If you receive a call, please DO NOT give out any credit card or bank account information. Please share to get this out to as many people as possible. As always we thank our wonderful community for all their support!
