The following are incidents from the St. Albans Police Dept.’s weekly activity log. These incidents are previously unreported in the Messenger.
This reporting would be impossible without the generous cooperation of Lt. Benjamin Couture — and this week, Lt. Jason Wetherby.
The SAPD responded to a total of 300 incidents between Monday, Nov. 18 and Sunday, Nov. 24.
Most were traffic stops, nearly 53 percent, followed by alarms, over 13 percent, accidents causing property damage and student resource officer detail, each roughly 12 percent and public assists, roughly 11 percent.
