Sergeant Gonzalez shared some Halloween Safety Tips with kindergartners last week.

We decided to challenge Mount Vernon Fire Department to an arm wrestling battle. Who do you think won?

Kind words from an outstanding group!

Mount Vernon Fire Department, are you dressing up like us this year? Halloween is a time to dress up as your superhero, after all. 😉

The City Police and Fire Depts. will be handing out their treat bags on Wednesday, Oct 31st and also have their Haunted House in conjunction. Children are allowed to Trick or Treat on Tuesday to residences if they choose.

Mount Vernon Police Department is saddened by the death of Animal Control Officer, Gene Youngblood. Gene will be missed by the community he selflessly served and our department mourns the loss of a fellow officer, friend and coworker. Gene was always close by with a good laugh and helping hand.

4th Street is almost back to normal! While it appears that construction is wrapping up, please remember that there are still crews working in the area. Drivers should be alert while behind the wheel and aware that traffic patterns may change temporarily during these final stages. Our new roadway is a tremendous improvement! Let’s help keep these road workers safe by driving with caution and being aware of our surroundings.

I’d be getting an autograph. Can anyone think of a better superhero to meet on a traffic stop?!

While doing some training at Marrs Elementary School, I caught Officer Sellers reading a book. I’m glad he was furthering his education, even if he was just looking at the pictures of dogs.

This organization is truly great. Sergeant Gonzalez and Officer Turner are amazing volunteers and role models for our youth. Good work, guys!

Police and Fire departments have a long history of playful fighting, but with October being fire safety month, I felt it appropriate to give them a shout-out. Our city’s fire department does an awesome job of training and keeping us all safe. Solid work, guys.

Did anybody else catch Chief Alldredge directing traffic during the parade? Awesome to have a Chief that works for our community as hard as he does. Side note, how many people wanted to see him dance?
