Frequently Asked Questions


 How can I protect myself from becoming a victim of Theft from a Motor Vehicle?

Remember to ALWAYS lock your car doors and NEVER leave valuables in your car; especially if they are exposed and can be easily seen, just by looking in the window

 What is a good source of information for parents to help protect their children from cyberbullying, online sexual enticement and internet predators?

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NECMEC) is a private, non-profit organization that serves as the national clearinghouse and resource center for information about missing and exploited children. NECMEC works closely with law enforcement agencies and provides on-line resources to help parents protect their children. The NECMEC resources may be accessed on the website

 What should I do if I see something in my neighborhood that doesn’t seem quite right?

You know your neighborhood better than anybody.  If there is a situation that doesn’t seem right to you, call for police right away.  Provide as much information to the dispatcher as you can and an officer will respond  to investigate.

 What types of medications can I put in the Drug Take-back Box?

The Drug Take-back Box is for disposing of unused prescriptions of narcotics.  It is a safe place to dispose of those types of items so they don’t fall into the hands of a child or other vulnerable person.  There are TWO things you MAY NOT put in the Drug Take-back Box.  The first being syringes (needles) and the second being ANY liquid (it poses a danger to our officers who clean out/emptying the box).  Both of those items are prohibited from being put in the Drug Take-back Box.  Also, please dispose of common, over-the-counter medications in your regular trash.  Using the Drug Take-back Box for items such as old aspirin and expired herbal supplements clogs the box.
