Last month, the week of September 09th through September 15th was designated by the communities of The Chagrin Valley as “Salute Our First Responders Week”. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the men and women of the police department to thank Dave and Mary Gromelski of Sara’s Place who provided a take-out dinner for our officers in appreciation of our service to the community.
For residents who are not signed up with the Your 911 Safety App for smart phones we are encouraging you to do so. The App provides you a one-button emergency link into our police dispatch center and allows for pinpoint accuracy of your location when calling. Other features would include allowing residents to receive mass notifications and enable you to report any service or safety issues from your smart phone. Simply go to the App store and search Your 911 (in purple). If you need help, please contact Jean at the town hall at 423-4405 ext 111.
Until next month – Proud to serve…Sworn to Protect
