Police Chief Callen issues reminders

ST. JOHNSVILLE -- St. Johnsville Police Chief Diana Callen issued two reminders to residents during Tuesday's St. Johnsville Village Board meeting, first asking residents to promptly clean their sidewalks.

"We've had complaints," said Callen, noting, "we do have pedestrian traffic in the village," including children walking to school. Homeowners are liable for their own sidewalks, and also for any injury that may occur on them.

Callen also asked that residents clean up after their pets, stating that the police department will ticket when they receive a complaint.

Callen said the department has repeatedly been questioned regarding recent occurrences when two St. Johnsville Police Department officers were on duty. "We generally only have one car on duty," Callen explained, except in the instance where a civic organization requests assistance.

Recently, when two officers have been on duty, the extra unit is operating under Stop DWI grant funding. The department received $5,500 in grant money, and they are utilizing the funding -- not village taxpayer funds -- to crackdown on reckless driving, including, aside from DWI, cell phone usage, texting and excessive speed.
