The 2018 World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb is here! With that in mind the Jackson Police Department would like to make a few suggestions:
- Drink responsibly. Don't let your intoxication get to the point where the police need to be involved. We want you to enjoy your weekend in Jackson and a night in jail shouldn't be part of that.
- Be proactive in thinking ahead as to how you will get home if you intend to drink.
- Know where you're staying. If you're contacted by the police for being too intoxicated, this can be the difference between going to jail or having the officer help you get to your destination.
- Carry money for a taxi. Keep the number for a taxi service in your phone or in your pocket. We have more taxis in Jackson than anywhere else in the state and we would encourage people to take advantage of that.
- Walking is always an option...but. Sometimes, as you may have seen in the weekly blotter, walking is not a good option for those who drink to the point they cannot safely do so. We’ve had past incidents of intoxicated pedestrians being struck by vehicles, one resulting in death and the other in significant life changing injuries.
- Secure your property. Most crimes in Jackson are crimes of opportunity. Lock your vehicle/trailer/ bicycle and secure valuables out of sight.
- For our lady visitors and locals: There is safety in numbers. Watch out for each other. Guard your drinks. Do not consume drinks that are given to you by people you do not know. Do not leave your drink unattended with someone you do not know. Don't leave your group or allow a member of your group to leave you.
IN SUMMARY: We would encourage people to have fun and enjoy themselves, but to do so responsibly and respectfully. We often see significant incidents of property damage, theft, vandalism, sexual assaults, and fighting in addition to increased DUI’s and public intoxications, and minors under the influence. All of these types of crimes generally boil down to people becoming intoxicated to the point that they make poor decisions.
Be safe and have fun.
Winter Parking Ban
November 1, 2017 - April 15, 2018
What is it? The winter parking ban is a seasonal status change on town streets and lots that prohibits parking on the public right of way to facilitate snow removal and winter street maintenance operations. Even a few illegally parked cars slows down the snow removal or cleaning process and ultimately costs us all more money.
When is it in effect? The winter parking ban is in effect from November 1 – April 15, 2AM-7AM of every year. The ban is in effect regardless of weather conditions.
Why do we need it? The winter parking ban is in place because of the potential for snowfall in the region. Snow can only efficiently and cost effectively be cleared at night from lots and streets that are empty of cars. After a storm, public works crews spend up to a week hauling snow and laying gravel to keep our streets in good condition. It is neither safe nor efficient for cars to be parked on the street while this work is being completed.
SOLUTIONS: Please park off of the street or in the town parking structure on Millward Avenue between the hours of 2:00 AM-7:00 AM. Note: The parking structure has a 48 hour limit.
Thank you for your cooperation! The Jackson Police Department
