We are facing down hurricane Florence. The top priority for this police department is to keep all our citizens safe. I am asking for your help and cooperation during this event. If you want to leave and do not have the capability please call 678-0458 and ask for one of us to come help you. Once the storm hits it will be to late to leave. To the business owners it would be extremely helpful if you would close Thursday until the storm passes. We will be extremely busy due to flooding and possible down trees and loss of power. My officers safety is paramount and coming to aid people at a business or coming to work is avoidable. Please do not drive out and into any flooded streets again this is avoidable so don’t put yourself in that situation because I can not guarantee a fast response time.
