Cinco de Mayo, 2019

Only four traffic stops but the prisoner was checked every 15 minutes over the whole day. That's 96 times today alone.

May 6:

The 15 minute interval check of the prisoner continues today.

Animal incident, Washington; loose dog "found" and delivered to HPD. Owner eventually located. Dog checked every 15 minutes.

Crash, 229 Lowland; Barry Bros. disposal truck "just brushed" the pole, according to the driver after noticing the power lines were down.

Animal incident, Linden; injured turtle reported headed for the pond.

Smoke & fire, Whispering Lane; HFD responded while HPD directed traffic. A person exited the residence carrying a laundry basket on fire (the dryer must have been set on "Millenial Dry" (I want it dry, and I want it dry NOW).

Crash, 1292 Washington; Milford versus Medway; One person taken to hospital and at least one car taken to Hometown Automotive.

Complaint, Exchange & Railroad; report of dead snake near a bench on the Rail Trail. Hwy wasn't called

Crash, Washington & Summer; Blackstone versus Hollis Center, ME.

Traffic complaint, Union; drivers ignoring new stop signs. HPD monitored 10 vehicles. All stopped (any chance that the cruiser parked next to the stop sign affected the results of the survey?).

May 8:

Animal incident, Whitney; report of two loose German Shepards. GOA (I wonder if they pick up after themselves).

Crash, Washington & Prospect; two from Milford. Hometown Automotive called to clear away the debris.

Traffic complaint, Washington & Hollis; caller requesting drivers be issued special tickets for "creating gridlock during rush hour". Let's take it one step further: loss of license for 30 days. Eventually there will be no drivers and no grid lock.
