Summer time means a rise in temperature, a rise in crimes and a rise in the number of kids running around our roads. Police Chief Kwin Bromley says at this time of year, you need to pay more attention behind the wheel. Bromley also advises motorists as well parents who may have set up basketball hoops in the street or by the curb, to bring those into your driveway if possible and avoid any unnecessary accidents. Bromley also wanted to note on with the rise in temperatures to always remember about your pet. Never leave without water for them and avoid leaving them in cars. Coffeyville has a tether law as well, meaning if you are going to leave your dog at home to not keep them tethered, in the sun or without any water. If you questions about these guidelines he encourages people to call the stations animal control officer for more information.With the amount of break-ins on the rise, speaking with Bromley, he gave us some tips he has to use to keep your business safer, even if you already have a security system. Bromley strongly believes the vandals are testing businesses and their security systems, so be aware and as Bromley stated contact them first as their average response time is within a minute or two of being dispatched.
