Thank you and Happy New Year: It’s great to be back in the office after a long absence due to foot surgery. I hope everyone had a happy holiday season and that 2018 is off to a good start for you. Thanks to those who sent holiday cards and get well cards — I really appreciated your thoughtfulness.
Neighborhood Watches: Over the holidays, several neighborhoods expressed interest in forming Neighborhood Watch groups. As those facilitation meetings roll out this month and next, I’ll announce any newly formed Foothills Area Command Neighborhood Watch groups on this web site to keep you informed.
Announcements: Commander James Collins is here at the Foothills Area Command. Some may remember Commander Collins from a few years ago when he served as the Foothills Day Watch Lieutenant. He is excited to be in the Foothills Area Command again and if you would like to reach out to Commander Collins, he can be reached at 332-5240. Our other leadership team members remain: Lieutenant Ferris Simmons (Day Watch), Lieutenant Bret White (Police And Community Together/PACT), Lieutenant Kenneth Johnston (Night Watch) and they can also be reached at the substation main phone number 332-5240.
