Our department has been involved in the delivery of packets of information to new members of our community for some time. These ‘welcome packets’ contain a wealth of information about the city including contact information, ordinance information, where to vote, etc. The first contact most people have with law enforcement is usually with us acting under the authority of our badge, so to have the first contact be a welcome to the community type contact builds relationships quite quickly. With increase in service type calls, this function has fallen on the reserve officers to fulfill. If you have recently moved into a residence and would like a Welcome Packet, you may stop at the police department to pick one up.
