REMINDER FROM THE LIVERPOOL POLICE DEPARTMENT
The warm weather has arrived and with this the Police Department has started to receive numerous complaints regarding property stolen from unlocked vehicles parked throughout the Village. The Liverpool Police Department would like to remind its residents to please ensure you lock your vehicles at night and never leave valuables (iPods, cell phones, money, etc.) in your vehicle while in plain view. We would also like to recommend that you always lock the doors to your residence when not at home and at night. This will discourage those individuals who are looking for an easy entry and quick access to your property.
The Department has taken steps to detect and apprehend those individuals who are committing these offenses in our community. Chief Morris would like to ask our citizens to please report any suspicious persons, activities or incidents you may witness by calling 911 and requesting Liverpool Police. For those who would like to leave an anonymous tip, you can do so by calling our tip line at 457-0722 ext. 6 to record your anonymous tip. In working together we will insure that our community is protected from those who would take advantage and victimize our citizens. For further information in safeguarding your home and property, please call the Liverpool Police Department at 457-0722.
FROM THE LIVERPOOL PD - REGARDING CROSSWALKS
§ 1151. Pedestrians' right of way in crosswalks.
(a) When traffic-control signals are not in place or not in operation, the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right of way, slowing down or stopping if need be to so yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk on the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling, except that any pedestrian crossing a roadway at a point where a pedestrian tunnel or overpass has been provided shall yield the right of way to all vehicles.
(b) No pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is impractical for the driver to yield.
(c) Whenever any vehicle is stopped at a marked crosswalk or at any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection
to permit a pedestrian to cross the roadway, the driver of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass such stopped vehicle.
DON’T GET SCAMMED!!! – Phone scams are on the rise. Don’t become a victim! Be wary of any caller claiming you have won a lottery or sweepstakes, trying to sell you a “mandatory” health plan, or claiming to be your child or grandchild saying they are in trouble and need money wired to them. These are ALL classic phone scams. If you are in doubt, err on the side of caution. DO NOT agree to wire money. Call the Liverpool Police Department if you have any questions or concerns, or if you feel you have been a victim of such a phone scam.
