In case of Emergency call: 911

Message from the Chief:

I would first like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.

The winter season is upon us and we all need to take precautions to ensure safe driving. Making sure our vehicles are in good working order for the winter driving is imperative. Having your gas tank full, tires properly inflated, and your windshield completely clear are just a few reminders.

I would always recommend having an extra coat or blanket inside your vehicle, just in case of a breakdown. 

Be cautious of the snow and ice creating hazardous roadways this season. Driving slower will prevent unnecessary accidents and remember not to use your cell phone while you are driving.

On a final note: I want to thank all the citizens in our community and outside the community to have been able serve this city as a Police Officer and as the Chief of Police. I will be retiring at the end of the year, and it is with sincere thanks and from the heart that I had the opportunity to get to know and be friends with many people. This is a wonderful city and it has been a privilege to be part of it.

Please stay safe and enjoy this wonderful season.

Thank you,

Chief Donald Combs
