This evening we celebrate the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021. Thank goodness that 2020 will be behind us and we all can begin to look forward to the new year and hopefully, many great things. 

2020 was obviously like nothing that we have ever experienced before. From the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lock-downs, closing of schools and businesses, to the push of having to working remotely, and of course the new ways to hold meetings and attending school through Zoom. We also had to experience an economic downturn, while travel came to a standstill and vacations were put on hold. While all of this was going on, we had a couple of named hurricanes enter the gulf, nationwide social justice concerns and an election season that never seemed to end.  So, with all that being said, good riddance to 2020.

Tonight, we will have our officers out ensuring a safe evening. As always, there will be a zero tolerance for DWI drivers and fireworks are not allowed. Please remember that firearms should not be discharged as this reckless behavior will result in the confiscation of the firearm and a visit to jail.

We are finishing up 2020 this week by seeing another round of mail thefts and forged/washed checks. A review of this week’s cases shows that several of the checks were stolen from US Post Office Mailboxes on either San Felipe near Voss or San Felipe at Woodway.  If those are mailboxes that you have recently used, please check your bank statements for any unusual or unauthorized activity.

And finally, on behalf of the men and women of the Memorial Villages Police Department I want to Thank You for the unprecedented support throughout the year and to wish you a very Happy New Year.

Chief Ray Schultz
