Summer's almost here, but school's not out quite yet! On your commute, you may see a school bus or two- and it's important that you watch for them stopping. When the stop sign arm opens, drivers are required to stop on both sides of traffic and not pass - children will be loading onto or off the bus.

Let's keep our children and community safe!

Thank you to everyone who came out to support us for the Dunkin' Cop on a Rooftop benefitting the Law Enforcement Torch Run!

Known as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the “Flame of Hope” into Opening Ceremonies of local competitions. They also carry it into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional and World Games. There are over 97,000 law enforcement members that carry the “Flame of Hope” annually. The flame symbolizes courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.

We were proud to contribute and we love seeing our community rally behind this good cause. Thank you for your support!
