Photo - Pink slips for WPD Officers? Nah, just evening secretary Joyce Brown separating the pink carbon copies of our leave/sick slips. The Officers get the pink copy, the department keeps the white copy (original), and HR gets the yellow. We are switching over to an all electronic scheduling system that allows us to look at budgets at a click, and each Officer can look at their time off and jobs available on their phone or tablet. This will make us "green", and make things much easier for those responsible for scheduling - primarily Lieutenant Bellos.

Photo - New picnic table built by inmates at the Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional facility. The Waterford Police Department has a new picnic table built for us by the inmates of the Corrigan-Radgowski correctional facility exterior work crew. The material was purchased by the Waterford Police Union, totaling about $150. The Waterford Police Department shares a long term excellent relationship with the Corrigan-Radgowski facility, under the direction of Warden Erfe. This picnic table is of superior craftsmanship, allowing inmates to give back to the communities they live, as well as learning life skills for their eventual release. This is done while serving their time for crimes committed. As always, we appreciate the hard work of the Corrigan-Radgowski exterior work crew, and thank them for a job well done!
