Any other dog would have been put down long time ago. Sad, but true.
Once they bite, it is more than likely they will bite again.
The dog needs to leave or stay kenneled.

Some members of Joe Biden's staff are worried that Commander, the president's dog, "only has an appetite" for biting Secret Service members, per a new report.


Starting on Tuesday, school zone speed cameras will once again be active in several Chesapeake school zones. Signage warning drivers about photo enforcement is marked at each zone and you can find a list of active cameras at Before a citation is issued, any picture of a potential violation is sent to a Chesapeake Police Officer for individual review. If a citation is sent, all payments must be made online or through the mail. For questions, contact the Chesapeake Police Department’s PhotoSafe office at 757-382-3535. Keep our students safe this school year – slow down and stay alert.


This is why we ALWAYS stress to NEVER drive through a flooded road. This was Monday morning along Spring Branch Rd. in Patrick County.

Sparklers are more dangerous than most people think as they burn at about 2,000 degrees. They can quickly ignite clothing and many kids have been severely burned from dropping sparklers on their feet. Consider safer options such as glow sticks and confetti poppers.


Your festivities should contain fun, not burns! Enjoy public firework displays and leave the pyrotechnics to the professionals.

Fireworks bring the risk of fires, injuries, and death — see the 2022 report from U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission below.


A Thunderstorm Warning means more than just rain. They can bring powerful winds, hail, flash flooding and/or tornadoes.

Take Watches and Warnings seriously, and remember: never enter flooded areas.

If you're interested in being a Spotter, you're in luck! We've got a FREE online training class (the last of the fall season!) coming up tomorrow night at 6 pm. Follow along on your computer or mobile device, and all ages are welcome! Register now and get more information at


For those who want to come out and help. 13 November we will meet at PSOB at 9am to organize the new trailer and clean out and organize the other trailers. Will sort out and remove old and replace with new, inventory and report what is needed and dispose of old and outdated supplies.


Learn The Sounds of Fire Safety: Know the difference between the sound of your carbon monoxide (CO) alarm and the smoke alarm, and the low-battery signals. If the low-battery signal sounds, replace the batteries or replace the device. If the carbon monoxide (CO) alarm still sounds, get to a fresh air location and call 9-1-1. Hear the chirp, make a change! Hear a beep, get on your feet!

Hurricane season is here…

Hurricane season is here…

Do you know how to protect your property from a hurricane? Consider:

✅ De-cluttering drains and gutters
✅ Bringing in outside furniture
✅ Protecting your doors and windows using plywood



Just having enough supplies to make it through a hurricane isn’t enough. You need plenty to make it through what could be a LONG recovery period too. Water and electricity could be out for a week or more. Have enough non-perishable food, water and medicine to last each person in your family for a MINIMUM of three days. Also make sure you have extra cash, a battery-powered radio, flashlights, and a portable crank or solar powered USB charger to charge your cell phone.


DEA Drug Take Back Day is this Saturday, April 24. Please take the time to dispose of any old and/or unused medications at the locations listed below between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Unused medications are an open invitation for misuse, which can lead to addiction. National survey results show most misused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. If you are unable to attend the event this Saturday, we have also listed several locations offering year-round disposal options.

DEA Take Back Day Collection Sites:
Second Police Precinct – 1209 20th St

Although SKYWARN® spotters provide essential information for all types of weather hazards, the focus is reporting on severe local thunderstorms. In an average year, the United States experiences more than 10,000 severe thunderstorms, 5,000 floods and more than 1,000 tornadoes.

Since the program started in the 1970s, the information provided by SKYWARN® spotters, coupled with Doppler radar technology, improved satellite and other data, has enabled NWS to issue more timely and accurate warnings for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flash floods. SKYWARN® storm spotters form the nation's first line of defense against severe weather. There can be no finer reward than to know that your efforts have given your family and neighbors the precious gift of time--minutes that can help save lives.

Are you ready to help? Sign up for a virtual training to become a spotter.

** Important: Due to high demand, these class will NOT be held in every county every year. You may attend an NWS Wakefield SKYWARN class in any location that is convenient for you, regardless of where you live. If you are interested in hosting a class, please contact our SKYWARN program Coordinat...
