Memorial Villages Police Department

From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,

It is less than one week away! The 2022 Twinkle Light Parade. On Thursday evening, beginning at 6 pm the parade will kick off from Frostwood elementary school at Gessner and Memorial. The parade will travel east on Memorial to Strey and then turn north. We will travel north to Taylorcrest and then east to Strey. South on Strey, back to Memorial, then another left turn traveling east to Bunker Hill Road. The parade will then turn back north on Bunker Hill Road to Taylorcrest and then east to Piney Point Road.  On Piney Point, we will turn south and travel back down to Memorial Drive. Then a right turn on Memorial Drive to Blalock where the parade will turn into the rear parking lot of the Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. 

The floats will gather in the back lot where there will be Christmas Caroling, Santa Clause and Hot Chocolate.  As a special surprise, the Memorial Villages Police Foundation is having thousands of pounds of fresh SNOW being trucked in.

There will an area for sledding and for throwing snowballs. The snow area will open when the parade arrives at the church at approximately 7:30 pm. and will close at 9:00 pm. Plan now to join us somewhere along the route and at MDPC afterwards. Bring the family, and your gloves for some snow play time, even if it is 80 degrees outside.  Also, don’t forget to check out the Twinkle Light Prequel Video at the following link.

This past week the MVPD had the opportunity to be involved in several events around the community. There was the groundbreaking for the new Memorial Drive Elementary School, and on Tuesday evening Hunters Creek Elementary hosted a school hayride event that was escorted by Officers Boggus, Silliman and Boggus. Tuesday was also Ken Spalding Day in Hunters Creek and yesterday, officers stopped by Frostwood elementary for teacher appreciation day. Thank you for including us in these events. (See the attached photos)

Lots of Holiday parties will be occurring this weekend. Please remember that if you are out and about late in the evening, to be extra careful and alert for impaired drivers. We already had one arrest this week and don’t really want any more.

Again, Thanks for the goodies this week. Lots of great baked goods, fruit, candy and gifts for our staff. We appreciate you more than we can ever say.

Have a great weekend. Chief Ray Schultz
