C.O.P. MEETIN G Our next meeting will be held on Thursday the 7th at

6:30 p.m. in the training room of the Police Dept. We really need to see you at our Monthly meetings. This is the only way for you to keep up with what is going on in our City. As a reminder, all COPs’ are required to attend at least 1 meeting quarterly for your benefit as well as the benefit of the program.


Be On the Look Out Bmv’s are on the rise again. We have had several recently at LA Fitness. People are still leaving items in plane view inside their cars. Cell phones are being snatch on a regular basis. Thieves are actually taking the phones out of peoples hand while they are talking on it. Never loan your phone to a stranger ‘in need’. They take the phone and run. Never leave a phone on a table or counter while your dining out. That makes for an easy target.

He wears camo pants, white face mask, sneakers with white toes/heels, and has a flame tattoo on his gun hand/arm. He also likes to get Newport cigarettes along with his money...
