Pedestrians should be very cautious in crossing streets since the roadways will undoubtedly be slippery from the snowstorm that we are currently experiencing. Please insure that children’s Purim costumes do not obstruct their vision and that reflective belts are worn by all during the hours of darkness.

The police department will be maintaining its zero tolerance policy concerning arrests for DWI, so please do not drink and drive.

Wishing a Safe and Freilichen Purim to all.

Chief Rob Lawson

  1. Hey- How come you don’t do all that for Halloween? Can’t the people cross the streets without the cops holding their hands? Why do you have to post crossing guards for? Neither the walkers nor the drivers will pay attention to them. How much of my tax money will be spent on all this OVERTIME work?
    I’ll bet this post gets removed for some reason.

  2. Hey #2 I believe there are crossing guards for Halloween, maybe you haven’t come down town in a few years on Halloween for the Halloween event on Clifton ave. Plus guards are used at Christmas for the Santa Visit. It comes down to working together and providing safety for those who ask for help from the town.
    Lets work together to make Purim and all events a SAFE one.
    The crossing guards deserve a lot of credit especially this winter.
