LAWS Publications 

Publications covering a range of topics from anti-bullying and decision making for juveniles to emergency preparedness, protecting yourself from identity theft and how to deal with domestic violence are available for free at both the Public Safety Building and City Hall.  The documents are provided to the department by L.A.W. Publications and funded by partnerships with local businesses and organizations.

Anonymous Controlled Substance Disposal

Anyone may anonymously turn in illegal controlled substances and/or paraphernalia to a sworn Officer at the Public Safety Building.  It is still unlawful to possess these items, unless you have come to the department specifically to turn them in for disposal.  The intent of this program is not legalize controlled substances and/or paraphernalia, but to provide the service to store and destroy them safely for anyone wishing to turn them over for that purpose.  Department members have been directed to collect items under this policy without making any effort to identify the person(s) turning them in.  Ideally, we can help those wishing to combat their addiction(s) by collecting these items and making treatment options available to them.  A list of treatment providers for addiction problems is available here for anyone abandoning items under this program.  The program is open to anyone, regardless of where they live.
