Orleans residents are reminded that the Town of Orleans recently entered into a contract to provide emergency alerts for area residents through the Reach Alert network. The new service will allow the town to immediately share important information regarding a number of items, including waterline breaks/boil water advisories, road closures/delays due to construction or accidents, hazmat situations, Amber/Silver alerts, police actions, and civic events. The service is available to those that wish to receive the alerts. If a customer does not register, they will not receive the alerts. Customers have the ability to choose either a text message, voice call or an email. Each household can register up to four phone numbers and four email addresses. To register, go to www.reachalert.com and click on my account; select create account. Follow the prompts and enter contact information; type Orleans under network name and then click on Orleans then it comes up. Select residence or business and click on the correct address and click on it when it appears in the drop down list.

With the help of everyone that messaged our department we were able to speak with the driver of the vehicle. We are investigating an incident that took place around the time this vehicle was in the area and by speaking with the driver, who was cleared of any involvement, we are able to put together a better time frame of the incident. Our investigation is on going.

Upon further investigation that traffic stop led to a search warrant that resulted in 9 addition arrests. In the early morning hours of March 7th Several OPD Officers, Orange County Sheriff’s Department and Mitchell PD were able to work together to execute a search warrant at a residence in Orleans.
