Mills Police Department News

A round of applause for our friends at the Casper Police Department. Very nice way to give back to the community!

The winter weather is settling in. Here are a couple of winter driving tips to help you avoid accidents... 1) Make sure your vehicle has appropriate tires. 2) Leave a little earlier than you usually do. 3) Drive a little slower. 4) Slow down early for turns. 5) Leave a little extra distance between you and other vehicles. 6) Go light on the brakes, avoid locking them up on slick surfaces. 7) Go light on the throttle. If your car is spinning out, more throttle is only going to make it worse. 8) Clean snow and ice from your windows, and also from your vehicle's lights. 9) Turn your vehicle's lights on in inclement weather. 10) Avoid talking on your cell phone or other added distractions while driving, especially on winter road conditions.

Its that time of year again... The annual Shop With a Cop event is coming up soon and it is time to get your applications in. Shop With a Cop is one way that local law enforcement gives back to the community, and the Mills Police Department is proud to be able to participate each year. Follow the link to the Mills PD web page to see the requirements and print off an application. http://millspd.org/2018/11/01/2017-shop-with-a-cop/

Whether you are excited about it or not, fall is here and with it comes the frost and winter weather.

School Zone on Poison Spider Road: ******Update****************Update*************Update************Update******* The new hours of operation for the school zone on Poison Spider Rd. will be from 6:30 - 8:00 AM and from 3:30 -5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. We have been informed that both lights are once again in working order. *************************************************************************************** We have had some inquiries about the school zone on Poison Spider Rd, and whether or not it is an active school zone now that there are not any schools operating in Mills. The school zone on Poison Spider Road will still be active. This is due to the school bus stops in the area and the school students that will be crossing Poison Spider to get to and from those bus stops. According to the Mills Public Works Director, the light that is not currently working should be repaired sometime next week. The hours that the lights will be flashing will be changing to match the school bus pickup and drop off times instead of the school hours for the schools that are no longer operating. The public works director is working with the school district to determine the actual times of operation for the school zone lights and should be getting them adjusted over the next few weeks. The new times will be approximately 06:30-8:00 AM and 3:00-4:30 PM, but these are not exact as of this time. Please continue to exercise caution when driving through this area as there are still school students crossing Poison Spider Road to get to and from their bus stop locations. We will try our best to keep you updated as we receive new information.

Labor Day weekend is upon us! For many, this weekend marks the end of summer, the beginning of a new school year, and a reminder that fall is just around the corner. Traditionally this is the last big weekend for summer activities before all of the kids head back to school. Soon people will be putting the boats away, winterizing the campers and looking for their snow shovels. Labor Day weekend is also known to be a weekend of barbeques with family and friends, camping, and parties at the lake. Whichever activities you are partaking in this weekend, there is a strong likelihood there will be alcoholic beverages being consumed. Please don’t drink and drive! Designate a sober driver before the party starts. If there is not a sober driver available, consider calling a cab or ride share service. If you are hosting the party, consider providing safe rides home for your guests, or have them stay overnight. Make sure to have non-alcoholic beverages available, and when you notice someone has had enough, offer them a soda, or some water. Consider installing the Drive Sober Wyoming app on your phone and getting it set up before you head to the party this weekend. http://www.wygcid.org/smart-phone-app.html Let’s all have a safe holiday weekend, and don’t forget that local schools start on Tuesday. Pay attention to school zones.

Aug. 29, 2018 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACTS: Jeff Goetz, WYDOT Senior Public Relations Specialist Wyoming Department of Transportation, District 2 jeff.goetz@wyo.gov (307) 473-3303 Pete Abrams, WYDOT Law Enforcement Liaison dpabrams@bresnan.net (307) 277-5696 This Labor Day, and Every Day: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over CASPER - Americans mark the end of summer with the Labor Day holiday weekend, a time to celebrate the hard work and great achievements of our country. Sadly, the Labor Day has also become one of the deadliest holidays. Law enforcement in Natrona County will increase its efforts to get drunk drivers off the roads during the weekend, showing zero tolerance for drunk driving. In conjunction with the national enforcement campaign Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over increased DUI enforcement has been ongoing since Aug. 17 and will be especially visible over the Labor Day weekend. Increased state and national messages about the dangers of driving impaired, coupled with more officers on the road, aim to drastically reduce drunk driving on our roadways. “Drunk driving is not acceptable,” said Lieutenant John Becker of the Natrona County Sheriff’s Office. “It is essential to plan a sober ride home before you ever leave for the party. That’s why during the Labor Day holiday we will make zero exceptions for drunk driving. There are just no excuses.” National Labor Day Holiday Statistics According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), 10,497 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes in 2016. On average, 10,000 people were killed each year from 2012 to 2016. Over the 2016 Labor Day holiday period (6 p.m. Sept. 2 – 5:59 a.m. Sept. 6), there were 433 crash fatalities nationwide. Of the fatal crashes, more than one-third (36 percent) involved drivers who were drunk (.08+ blood alcohol concentration [BAC]), and one-fourth (25 percent) involved drivers who were driving with a BAC almost twice the legal limit (.15+ BAC). Age is a particularly risky factor: Among the drivers between the ages of 18 and 34 who were killed in crashes over the Labor Day holiday period in 2016, 47 percent of those fatalities involved drunk drivers with BACs of .08 or higher. Community Effort “Our community should understand that it’s up to them to make the right decision to not drink and drive this Labor Day and each day,” Becker noted. “Drunk driving is a serious problem in our country, and the numbers are rising steadily. It’s not about writing tickets, it’s about getting the word out that drunk driving is illegal, and it kills. Please help us put an end to drunk driving.” Tips for a safe holiday Remember that it is never okay to drink and drive. Even if you’ve only had one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation, Safe Ride, a cab or Rideshare to get home safely. Download the Drive Sober Wyoming mobile app at www.wygcid.org/Smart_Phone_App.html The app includes quick access to texting or calling a friend for a ride, plus a list of companies that can provide a safe ride home. Also included are Wyoming laws and penalties for driving under the influence, as well as information about the real cost of a DUI. If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact law enforcement immediately: call 9-1-1. Have a friend who is about to drink and drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get your friend home safely.

In case you are trying to get a hold of Wyoming Medical Center this morning...

Just want to pass on this great scam information from our friends at the CBI.

If you are a landscape, construction, or fencing contractor who lost a bit for your power auger while driving through Mills, you may want to come and see us. Last we checked those things aren't cheap. If you know anyone who may have lost one, feel free to share this or tag them. thanks!

Several months ago, we put out a Facebook post asking for patches and coins, for an injured officer in a neighboring department. We are truly in awe at the response we have received to our post, and do not believe that anyone in our department thought this would be as successful as it was. The response that we received from citizens, officers and departments was amazing. At the time of this writing, our original post had been reached by 158,328 people, shared over 1,400 times, had 502 likes/responses and 317 comments. In total we have received 171 submissions from 31 different states and even one submission from Canada. For a total of 1108 items. Not only were items received for Officer Carlson, but we have received items for his partner in the incident, Officer Garrett. We are truly honored to be part of a group that cares so deeply about its fellow officers, and proud to be from the State of Wyoming, which had the most submissions with a total of 36. The breakdown of items received includes: 133 coins 935 patches 40 other items such as hats, shirts, pens, pins, ETC. We are glad to announce, Officer Carlson came to our department this afternoon, and picked up the items we received for him. We would like to give a Thank You to everyone that sent items in, dropped them off at our department or made sure to get the word out to departments across the country and Canada. This could not have been such a success without your support. Thank you!

Approximately three days ago, the Mills Animal Control has picked up two German Shepard dogs, in the area of the Mills Police Department. One of the dogs are male, while the other is a female. No collars on either dog, and both appear to be friendly. If you are missing these animals please contact the Mills Animal Control Officers any time Monday through Friday at (307)266-4796, or come to the Mills Police Department during regular office hours.

***UPDATE*** The owners of these animals have been located and the issue has been addressed. Thank you to everyone who got the word out there. Mills Animal Control Officers recently recovered two dogs in the Pendell Blvd. Fulton Street area. Both dogs are friendly, and no doubt are missing their owners. On dog is a white boxer and the other is a black lab. They were hanging out together, checking out the lovely streets of Mills. If these are your animals, please contact Mills Animal Control at (307)266-4796 or come to the Mills Police Department between 8AM and 5PM Monday through Friday.

We would like to wish you all A happy Independence Day. We would also like to take a moment and thank everyone who served this country, past, present and future. Thank you for your service.

This is some great info, please take a moment to watch.

On June 30th, the Town of Mills Will be ending their contract with Metro animal control, and starting their own service.For more information click the link below.
