Local Law Enforcement to Step Up Patrols During Graduation Season This Year

This June, many of our County’s teens will be graduating high school and getting ready for college or entry into the workforce. Many see this time as a “rite of passage” and engage in underage drinking and drug use (marijuana being the #1 drug). Also, many parents see no problem in hosting graduation parties where alcohol will be served. Graduations are meant to be enjoyable and memorable experiences.

Each motorized boat needs to have:

  2. One Type 4 throw able device (USCG Approved)
  3. Sounding device (horn or whistle)

  6. Visual Distress Signal (3 day/night flares)
  7. Navigation and Stern Light during low visibility or night

Do Not Leave A Pet In Your Car Today

Heat

Not even for a minute!
Today is going to be a HOT day.
Do Not Leave A Pet In Your Car Today.

It’s estimated that hundreds of cats and dogs die each year from being left in hot cars, while even more become seriously ill. While it’s easy to think that only animals who belong to bad people die in hot cars, it’s simply not true. It can happen to even the most devoted animal lover. “I was just gone a few minutes,” “It wasn’t even that hot,” “I cracked open a window.” These are the common responses of grieving family members when they return to their cars to find their beloved cats or dogs have died of heatstroke.

A very sad and special #k9friday. Over 60 police dogs and their handlers lined Gleneida Avenue along the Row of Honor for the funeral of Carmel PO Gary Pietropaolo. K9s from local, regional and State agencies were represented. Later that day the K9s and their handlers greeted the family and other mourners at the entrance to the cemetery. What a deeply moving and emotional experience for everyone who loved him and had the honor of knowing him. Rest In Peace.
