Chief’s Message

As we move into the holidays, we at the Sand City Police Department would like to wish you a safe and happy Holiday Season.  It is easy to get caught up in all of the activity and commitments the season brings to our lives.  But, it is also important to remember slow down and enjoy the time we have with family and friends.  Sometimes a little planning on the front end can save tremendous problems in the future.  One example is attending the celebrations associated with the season whether with friends, coworkers, or family.  If you plan on drinking, be sure to arrange for a ride or a designated driver.  Officers will be conducting increased enforcement and awareness for impaired driving.  Don’t let a bad decision ruin your holidays.

Sand City is a popular shopping destination for gifts and holiday staples.  Please remember to be careful while driving through the parking lots filled with holiday shoppers and children.  Also, here are some quick tips to prevent problems and heartache while shopping:

Do not leave any valuables inside the passenger compartment of your vehicle.  Cell phones, tablets, purses, gifts, etc are tempting to thieves who will break into your vehicle.  Valuables should be locked in the trunk.

While shopping, do not leave your purse or personal belongings unattended in your cart.

Always be aware of your surroundings.  If you see someone suspicious, avoid contacting them and call the police.

Do not use your cell phone or text while driving, particularly while in parking lots.  Distracted driving leads to traffic collisions.

Thanks and have a great Holiday Season!
