Photo - Cleaning the impound lot - the day after. As the town continues to dig out of the snow, so do we here at the WPD - Sergeant Dimmock and Officer Whitehead are shown getting police vehicles out of the impound lot with the help of the town Rec and Parks Department Kubota. Off camera (too shy?) are Detective Davis, Investigator VanOverloop, and Traffic Officer Anderson who are helping. All the rear wheel drive cars were moved into the impound lot to keep out parking lots clean, allowing snow removal to go much smoother - we enacted our own "parking ban" here at the WPD!

Photo - As the storm continues please continue to remain off the roadways so the public works department can continue their operations. The roadways are hazardous due to moderate to heavy snow fall, wind, and drifting snow. Please remain at your residence until the storm has subsided and the public crews have had an opportunity to open the roadways. A follow up message will be sent when the roadways are passable. Officers are on the roads looking for stranded motorists and other hazards, and plow crews have been working all night to try to keep up with the storm, which is proving difficult. At this point we are not aware of any power outages in town, we certainly hope it stays that way.

Photo - Cars being towed in violation of town snow ordinance - please share. As a State of Emergency has been declared, cars parked in the street that are not moved are going to be towed. The Waterford Police Department has done what we can to contact owners of vehicles left in the road. This will allow Town plow crews and emergency services personnel to clear roadways and get to affected areas to help people. Please share this post, if you see a neighbor with their car in the roadway please contact them and tell them to move it or it will be towed - we have just started to contact tow companies and are starting this as this is being posted.
