Circumstances of Event:
Local and regional first responders will be participating in a training at the Brattleboro Area Middle School at 109 Sunny Acres in Brattleboro, VT. This training will occur on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 in the afternoon and evening. The training will be indoors, but there will be a notable presence of police, fire, and EMS vehicles in the area.
Questions related to this training should be directed to Captain Mark Carignan at the Brattleboro Police Department.
This training has been scheduled and planned for months. It is not the result of any recent local, regional, or national events.
Throughout the month of November, Brattleboro Police Officers, along with law enforcement throughout the state, will be stepping up enforcement for motor vehicle violations. This will be made possible via saturation patrols, check points, and utilizing extra bodies on the roads.
November is a busy month. Thanksgiving, Black Friday, school vacations, and adverse weather conditions can make November a tough month for motorists. Brattleboro Police, with the support of the Governor’s Highway Safety Program, will be out there trying to keep the roads as safe as possible for the motoring public.
The Brattleboro Police urge motorists to watch their speed, obey traffic laws, avoid using phones while operating, use their seatbelts, and to of course, never drink and drive.
