National Police Week

This is National Law Enforcement Week.   Please remember those officers out there in your neighborhoods and those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. 

Forty Police Officers have lost their lives this year so far, which is the lowest number in over a decade.   Community support has a lot to do with this result.

The Village of Waterman is a wonderful place to work and we look forward to joining you in building this community.  Keep us in your thoughts this week.

Chief Joe Cicci and the entire Waterman Police Department
