Looking back on a full week

Ryan Fleming

Police had a very busy week last week, but before I start, I would like to remind people that now we are approaching winter and the fog is getting heavier, it is important to stay visible when driving. Using your headlights on your vehicle when the weather is foggy increases your chance of being seen by other motorists.
