Many stores will be open tomorrow on Thanksgiving for early Black Friday Sales shopping. There will be a frenzy of people shopping and thieves will be watching.

Lock your vehicles and put your items in the trunk if possible. Thieves know that a blanket covering a large bulky area in the back seat/cargo area of an SUV is probably hiding multiple items to steal.
Don’t carry large amounts of cash

We had the great fortune to have several awesome visitors at our Police Department for Halloween!  

First, we had the City Pre-School Class come by and get a tour of the building, equipment and police cars in use to serve the community.  They are a great bunch of kids and they left with goody bags and big smiles.

Next we had kids from the Wheaton and Hasty families of Rossmoor
