Kudos to Woodstock Police Department and Strasburg Police Department yall give the best entertaining posts but yet still sending the message out. :) Thank you for your service, be safe, and God Bless.

I’ll be going the speed limit and still have a heart attack

*making people too scared to do 5 over since 1949.

It's so bad that I park my car and ride a donkey

🖕🤣

Radar, generating income since 1948...

It is Valentine 1 Day!!

That model does look like it's from the 70's

And it would be neat to see the EKG when you it the lights

Now we all know you're sitting over by Ben's 😁

Needs more Kr-10. 😬

Yep. Made mine thump thump quite a bit #thirtynineinatwentyfive

I didn’t realize officers take pride in doing this... Just my opinion it’s rather unprofessional to post something like this. #Disappointed

Leave the lovebirds alone..... Get the methbirds out of town.

I thought Radar first hit the air on September 17, 1972?

Good spot, but a better spot is across the street facing South.

Outstanding job!

Got the range maxed out watch out.

😂

Heh, I see my car in this pic. You should have stopped by 5.0!

It's the quick flip of the blue lights that's the heart stopper..

"We're here, we're there, we're everywhere. So beware". :)

What time you coming I’ll have hubby ready. Lol

How much to keep them ?

Is there a group discount? Asking for some friends.

Several years ago I was in San Diego for a convention and the police were “arresting” people (for a photo) for donations. It was brilliant. Handcuffed and laid over the hood of the car. One of my favorite pictures and my friends still don’t believe I wasn’t actually arrested.

Can it be for me and the kids? He can stay home and wonder what we did.

Just show up and take my whole family so I can have some peace and quiet!! 🤣😂

This would be great for April Fools

Just take me! I need a break 🤷🏻‍♀️

One way ticket for you Rich!🤣

That would be a great prank I would pay for (to get my husband)!

So what time you coming 😁

Is that a round trip?

Take my husband... please!!!

Mother in laws as well?

What about sassy preteens? 😂

What's the charge..?

One of your officers (sorry I don't remember his name) sweet talked a black bear cub down from a tree at my house. The tree is about ten feet from the screened in porch. I was very impressed!!

I caught a rooster when I worked for Woodstock and he was then relocated to a farm 😁

I know some Woodstock officers who rescued some wild kittens that were tangled up in a soccer goal 😀

Sure, you can laugh at us because we’re walking like penguins but we’re also not falling.

We do have a video of Sgt. Miller taking a tumble on some black ice. But you may have to FOIA it.

This is a great graphic, thank you, but I think we would really benefit seeing this as an instructional video...please penguin-walk for us!

Gravity, it’s not just a good idea, it’s the law!

And thanks for this!

Good one, Woodstock Police Dept!

In light of the Verizon super bowl commercial about first responders “answering the call” we noticed they left out the most important people, the people who literally answer the call, our dispatchers.

*They* are the ones who answer the call, we just go where they tell us to. *They* are the calm voice, the voice of help, the voice of aid. *They* are the ones who help first, be it medical instructions to provide lifesaving CPR or just a comforting voice to someone who is having the worst day of their life.

Without them, we would not be able to provide the level of service that we do to our community and without them, we would go into dangerous situations, blind.

Our dispatchers answer *every* call, we just go where they send us and continue to provide the help and aid they already began.

Thank you.

Thanks To All Of The Dispatchers!! You’re Awesome!!❤️❤️❤️

Our dispatchers are awesome. Thank you for your dedication.

This post is great. Thank you for making the public aware. 😊

A big thank you to the wonderful dispatchers, y'all have a very stressful yet rewarding job! You rock. A big thank you to our first responders too. Prayers for all. You are the best of the best!!

Thanks to you and the dispatchers!! Love you all!

Thank you to all! Your hard work is appreciated!

Thanks to the dispatchers who are the first to receive the many calls for help and do everything they can to help those on the other end of the line!

Yes thank the lord for them as well when my daughter was a infant she was on a breathing machine she stopped breathing one evening and I had taken classes but couldn't remember went blank but the gentleman who answered my call got me calm and walked me through everything before the emts arrived so yes thank you and god bless each of you

Thank you to all of the dispatchers and their calming spirits! 🙏🏻💛🙏🏻💛🙏🏻💛🙏🏻

So very, very true. Special Thanks to the Dispatchers for their behind the scene work.

Grateful for our selfless dispatchers. Thank you for what you do every single day.

Dispatchers are definitely a calming force and on the front line. Thanks to all of you first responders, especially dispatchers!!

Thank you all for all that you do!

Thank you for the recognition!

Absolutely! Thank you💙

Thank you for including us. I know it means alot to all dispatchers.

I want to thank our dispatchers for what they do to keep our comunite safe

Thank you all for everything you do.

Big thanks to all dispatchers & our first responders

As a former New Jersey EMT, I agree.

I am sure there are great stories how that "voice" got them through a crisis. Words like "officer down" is like having a family member in crisis. Always say a prayer for these dispatchers.

Thank you to you all💞💞

What. A. Great. Post. Well done Woodstock 👍👍

From start to finish. Team work.

I only half heard that commercial and I thought that’s who it was for. That’s literally who I thought of was dispatchers.

We’ve received reports about people receiving calls from someone pretending to be from Dominion Energy Virginia claiming that you’re behind on your bill and demanding payment otherwise they’ll shut off your electric in 30min.

Tell them yolo and to to flip the switch.

Dominion and other utilities will send such notices through the mail and we can guarantee you that the people who handle that aren’t working on a Saturday.

Remember to verify any claims through known contact info and never give any financial information to unverified sources.

Also, if they request payment via prepaid gift cards, they may as well be asking for small denomination, unmarked bills.....in police work, we call that a clue.

As we settle into another frigid night on Hoth, we are pleased to let you know that all Woodstock Police Department officers have been deputized as official park rangers. With our newly acquired authority, we want to remind everyone to be mindful of their pets; dogs and cats aren’t as hardy as Tauntauns. It’s also a good idea to check in on neighbors who aren’t as acclimated to these extremes.

If you live in an older house that isn’t well insulated, trickle your faucets and leave your cabinet doors open. That will reduce the chances of a burst pipe. No one wants to be in their basement at 3am trying to thaw pipes with their light saber. It’s just asking for trouble.

Y’all stay warm.

Who should we call if we see somebody who leaves their pet outside on a frigid night like the ones we've been having?

If you see someone who didn’t have the good sense to bring a pet in-please let someone know!!!

Interstate 81 FYI...TOLLS ARE COMING...Virginia Governor Ralph Northam announced Tuesday that the state will be adding tolls along the I-81 corridor from Winchester all the way down to Bristol. The governor says he is committed to working with legislators from both sides of the aisle to establish a funding source that will support critical improvements to the interstate in the western part of Virginia. https://www.localdvm.com/news/virginia/governor-ralph-northman-announces-new-tolls-on-i-81/1693026408 The proposal allows small trucks and automobiles to purchase an annual unlimited pass at a fixed rate. Officials say these tolls will help fund the two point two billion dollar project.

Stay safe officers.

You don’t want to go to jail, or worse, hurt yourself or someone else. If you’re planning on drinking tonight, do us all a favor - plan ahead and designate a sober driver.

Coach taught most of our officers at Central and has always been a supporter of our community and the Department.

As Christmas winds down, we want to remind you not to "advertise" to criminals by leaving your trash out on the curb for everyone to see what Santa brought.

The town offers a recycling station at the Public Works facility and the landfill will be open tomorrow for you to rid yourself of the copious amounts of boxes and wrapping paper.

It is also a good time to note all serial numbers should you be the victim of a theft. These numbers can be plugged into a national database and will aid in the return of stolen property.

Congratulations to Jessica for five years of dedicated service to the citizens of Shenandoah County. If you’ve called for emergency services after 6pm, there’s a good chance she was instrumental in getting you the help you needed.

We’re so thankful for our dispatchers and all they do for us; they are the often heard, but hardly seen part of our team and we wouldn’t be near as efficient nor would we be able to provide the quality of service that we do without them.Today, one of our own was recognized for 5 years of service with Shenandoah County Emergency Communications Center. Jessica is currently our B Shift Lead Communications Officer and truly an asset to the team! Thank you for your service and dedication to ECC, Jessica!

Great info from Strasburg Police Department!‘TIS THE SEASON... OF SCAMS Don’t let The Grinch steal your joy (or your money) this holiday season. With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, the next couple of months present a golden opportunity for scammers to sneak in unnoticed - to your lives, your personal information, and your bank accounts. This time of the year is the build-up to when scammers reach their peak activity: tax season. Take five minutes to get a jump start on scammers by following these tips. Help us spread the word by sharing this post to your page so your friends can stay informed! • The IRS will never, ever call you to tell you that the police are coming to arrest you for a tax error. We promise. According to the IRS website, the IRS will usually first contact a taxpayer in writing. The IRS will rarely call taxpayers and will never send text messages or contact taxpayers on social media. • Law enforcement will never, ever call you and give you the opportunity to pay your way out of a warrant. We promise. If you get a phone call stating there is a warrant for your arrest but you can cancel it by sending money, that is a scam. • Be mindful of who you meet on the internet. If you meet someone online whom you don’t know in person, do not - for any reason - send them money. There are people on the internet who prey on people with kind hearts. They make friends with their victims and tell them they are struggling financially. The victims willingly send them money, and it’s all a lie. It is estimated that over $211 MILLION was lost in 2017 to this type of scam. • When shopping online, if a deal seems to be too good to be true, it usually is. Ask yourself: why might an item be marked down 80% or more? Do not give your credit card information to a scammer. Only shop online through trusted retailers. Young people: please, please, please share this information with your elderly relatives. Take the time to have this conversation with them. Scammers are targeting the elderly at an alarming rate. Come up with a system to help protect them from falling victim to a scam. In 2017, approximately 10,000 Virginians were scammed out of over $35,000,000. 2018 is almost over. In 2019, let’s all work together to help fight back against scammers. ... See MoreSee Less

It was used before radar and radio communications from planes and airports and told the pilot where he was as they navigated by maps at that time. Yes, it told the pilots where the nearest landing strip was. Located atop of the theater, it was restored a few years ago and was featured in a story in the Mountain Courier a few months ago.

Ask a pilot...it denotes the next closest landing/airstrip location I believe. No longer really used just in case of emergencies. I would imagine a few landing locations are now overgrown.

My dad was a pilot 50 years ago. The number stands for the number of miles to the next airport and landing strip the circle and arrow indicate the direction. This is what pilots used before they had radar and navigation in the planes! My dad owned 3 planes, all of which I got to fly with him, non of which had navigation or instrumentation in them.. One was an open cockpit bi plane. Any other questions.. Just ask.no am old enough to know😆

13 Miles to front royal airport (FRR)

Yes, What Ken Sadler said!

I asked Mr. Tim Dalke, previous owner/ operator of the Community Theatre himself what it meant and he explained it to me. It noted to pilots flying overhead the direction and distance to nearest airport/ landing strip. This one refers to the airport near Front Royal.

Theater

There's one in Mount Jackson on Main Street too... Across from Imboden I believe.

i do!

Is that to help plains get to airports

Who knows where it’s located?

Holiday Shopping. Crowded stores and parking lots, stress to finish the list and find the best deals. It is a busy time of year and sometimes during a momentary lapse in attention, a vehicle bumps another in a parking lot. It happens…..often. The Woodstock Police Department would like to explain the process of handling a “property damage only” accident that occurs in a private lot (any area that isn’t a state/town maintained road).

First thing: remain calm. A mistake has been made, it’s not the crime of the century. If safe to do so, get out and assess the damage and need for medical services. If there are none, state law requires that the drivers exchange their “name, address, driver's license number, and vehicle registration number”. It is also a good idea to exchange insurance information.

That’s all! Simple, isn’t it?

If the vehicle is unattended, state law requires that the “driver shall leave a note or other sufficient information including driver identification and contact information in a conspicuous place at the scene of the accident” and to notify police. By notifying police, we can use our resources to track down the owner if he or she does not call upon finding your note. We simply facilitate the information exchange at that point.

The Woodstock Police Department does not have jurisdiction to enforce the traffic laws of the Commonwealth on private property, with the exception of Driving Under the Influence, hit and run and Reckless Driving which stipulates that a vehicle must be operated “at a speed or in a manner so as to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person”. 99% of private property accidents do not result in a summons.

If there is any injury or you do not feel safe because of the actions of the other party involved, please do not hesitate to call us, we’ll respond and assist with the incident, as needed.

Thank you for sharing

Think you left out a *not* in the Reckless driving description. ;)

On this rainy Saturday, we want to leave you a little mind blowing fact: there is exactly one person on the planet who is the nicest person on earth.

When Mr. Rogers and Bob Ross were still alive, they just graciously passed the title back and forth.

And whatever you do make sure your skin and fingers stay out of the hinge - ya don’t know how that happened but it did... more than once. 🙄

Every time! :)

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. If you plan on traveling by automobile like the other 54.3 million Americans, we would like to offer you some pre-travel safety tips, courtesy of AAA:

· Ensure your vehicle is properly maintained. If maintenance is not up to date, have your car and tires inspected before you take a long drive.

· Map your route in advance and be prepared for busy roads during the most popular times of the year. If possible, consider leaving earlier or later to avoid heavy traffic.

· Keep anything of value in the trunk or covered storage area.

· If you’re traveling with children, remind them not to talk to strangers. Go with them on bathroom breaks and give them whistles to be used only if the family gets separated.

· Have roadside assistance contact information on hand, in case an incident occurs on the road.

· In case of an emergency, keep a cell phone and charger with you at all times. AAA and many other companies offer smartphone applications that enable motorists to request help without making a phone call.

Officers will be on patrol throughout the holiday weekend. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call the police department at 540–459-2141

I missed something, but I have enjoyed your funny posts in the past. None have been made to belittle anyone. Some of my most funny jokes I have made have been about myself. A sense of humor is a great thing. Keep em coming and if someone doesn't like them they can ignore them or stop following you.

Trouble is when dealing with any police department, admission is usually free. You have to pay to get out though. 😁

Can’t please everyone! I actually enjoy all the post, something to smile about 😊 Thanks for all you guys do and actually trying to connect on a personal level with all ages, keep up the good work!

That's because Mondays are no joke

Love your posts, I need quirky posts in my life. <3

I don’t even live in that state anymore....but I still follow y’all cause you’re hilarious 😂 beat Police Department I’ve ever seen

Keep the posts coming. Love, love, love!

I don’t want my money back, just more humor

People get off on complaining. Working with public you should know this by now

Keep it up, don't stop posting

Geez, people. Smile !!

Ya'll keep it up! Love seeing the posts. :)

You guys are great! Keep the humor coming!

Y’all rock! People need to chill out!

I thought it was funny. You guys ROCK. I look forward to your humorous posts. Keep doing a great job, both at policing and your posts. Thanks!!

I loved it!! Then again, I was off work today 😂😂

I love your posts!! Keep ‘em coming!!

Funny! Would have been funnier if instead of "refund admission" you said "get out of jail free card" 🤣

People need to relax. It was good.

On behalf of the Woodstock Police Department, we present to you our newest Officers, Chase Kerns and Arianna Smootz.

The journey from recruit to Officer is long and difficult. They are tested several times a week on their knowledge both academically and practically. They are up at sunrise for room inspections and formation then they go right into classroom instruction and practical evolutions. They receive what amounts to an abbreviated law degree in a matter of weeks then it’s on to things like patrol techniques and learning the skills to ensure they survive an encounter they never want to have.
As the weeks turn to months, the academics subside and the practical exercises increase. They learn to defend themselves and others from violent physical attacks. They learn that our cruisers are high performance machines, capable of more than they thought. They become proficient in the use of firearms, but never wish to use them. They partake in a rigorous physical training program to ensure their bodies are as sharp as their minds and to lay the foundation of wellness they will carry throughout their careers.

As the halfway point passes, they feel more like cops and less like nervous recruits. Lifelong relationships are being formed with their classmates. Evenings are spent studying, nursing bruises and sore joints from defensive tactics and enjoying meals together. No matter where they may end up, they will always be part of Class 138.

As the weeks wind down, they begin to combine everything they’ve learned in what is called Officer Survival week. They are given scenarios that they have to handle from beginning to end. They may encounter role players who resist, who are rude, who draw weapons....they are no longer recruits, they are cops. They must decide and act. The difference is in the academy, they can make mistakes and learn from them. Out here, there is no room for error.

Lastly is the state test. A 200+ question monster that challenges them on everything they’ve learned since day one. Both Kerns and Smootz did outstanding, as we knew they would.

Everything they’ve done for the past 18 weeks culminated in today’s graduation ceremony. It wasn’t the end of Police Academy; it’s the beginning of their careers. Ofc Kerns and Smootz will now go on to complete their field training assignment which consists of learning the about the Town and applying what they learned in Police Academy in real-world situations under the guidance of an experienced field training officer. Upon completion, they will be released to respond to calls for service on their own.

They’ve worked very hard to reach this point; the beginning of a long and admirable career in serving the community in which they grew up in. We are so proud to have them back as part of our family and wish them the very best.

Use your high beams to better illuminate the road and be prepared to stand on that wide pedal and take evasive action. The decision to avoid may be more dangerous than striking the deer. That’s something you have to make taking your vehicle, driving ability and traffic into account.

They’ll often work in teams so if you see one, his partner may be close by, ready to boost your car to head over to Hollywood Casino to win......a few bucks! 😂😂😂😂

Anyway, y’all be careful.

Last night during all the excitement, we kept hearing this whistle. We found this junior officer walking down Summit Ave. and his mom jokingly said if he kept blowing that whistle, she’d leave him with us to help direct traffic....

Well, Ofc. Wilberger put him to work at the 4-way and he did an excellent job of keeping things moving along safely.

Thanks Stephanie Funk for sharing this video.

We had an awesome time last night, thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy Halloween in Woodstock! We handed out over 1,000 of our reusable glow sticks, which were purchased through a grant from the Northern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce. It was so great seeing the sea of little blue blinking lights moving from house to house.

If you were on Spring St, you also saw our new light tower, purchased through a grant as well. For something that runs off our cruiser’s battery, it puts out some awesome light!

We want to extend our sincere gratitude to Jason Bushong for loaning a second light tower for us to use along Spring St. and to WHSV - TV 3 for covering our pre-game show at the Valley Vista Apartments.

We hope everyone had a wonderful time and we look forward to doing it again next year!

We'll be missing one of our residents out here on Halloween night on West Spring Street due to health reasons and he's always the one that gave out the full size candy bars so the rest of us on West Spring Street are just going to have to make up for it

Thank you woodstock police dept

I can’t say how many times Walt and I have helped truck drivers venturing up Park Avenue because GPS sends them that way. There needs to be a sign or signs along Ox Road and the Park Road Indicating not to turn down Washington St and indicating they are in a residential area. Dang-and on top it -it’s dark outside and a little hard to see to try and figure out a turnaround spot. Is there a way to get the GPS system to correct this?

Samuel Gene Miller Jesse Tyler Melissa Steward

Unfortunately signs don’t always work- they have been up at the covered bridge and either disregarded or just not seen. Thank goodness that problem has been pretty much fixed.

Wonder what all I will have to fix after this. Lol

Why should the town pay for a sign?? Why not the driver use some common sense. Stop using GPS and become friends with Rand McNally.

Tractor trailers are cancelled for today.

Was it a swift truck

God only knows where the GPS taking him!!!!!!

Use some common sense people. If you’re driving a big truck like this, and your GPS tells you to go down a VERY TINY ROAD, tractor trailer shouldn’t even be allowed to be back there. The town shouldn’t waste their money for someone else’s stupidity.

They give anyone licenses now adays.

Lol James Hale I told u not to go that way lol

Why was it up there in the first place?

We saw him turning off of w reservoir and thought .. “uhhhh you may not want to go that way buddy”

Recently there of been several reports of construction fraud in town. We would like take a moment to give a few tips on how to prevent becoming a victim.

Do your research. There are many ways to determine if warning signs exist. Searching sites online, like the Better Business Bureau | US, Angie's List (please don’t call our Town Manager, she does not maintain a list) or other review services could indicate whether previous complaints have been filed against the business or contractor.

Find out if the contractor is licensed, bonded and insured. If they are, then they should be able to provide the documentation to you before you sign a contract. Rest assured the ladies at the town office will yank a permit so fast it’ll make your head spin if a company engages in unscrupulous activity.....we’ve seen it happen....it’s pretty wild.

Obtain references. Most reputable contractors have *many* verifiable references regarding their work.....this is ShenCo, after all.

Always sign a contract. Verbal arrangements are very difficult to prosecute. Contracts provide details, at a minimum, regarding what work is to be completed and when it should be completed. Work orders written in crayon on a McDonald’s bag are a clue.

Be very cautious regarding door to door sales. Many scammers will offer “special deals” using “left over materials”. Often, they have unmarked vehicles, with small or no company logos..... heck, they may even be drawn with a sharpie. They might have out of state license plates. Scammers will often have PO Box addresses or temporary addresses. If any of these apply, they should be treated as warning signs for potential fraud.

Avoid obtaining a permit yourself. If your contractor asks you to obtain a permit, this could indicate that they are not licensed. You should also be cautious if you are told that a permit is not necessary. A piece of paper that the construction foreman has written “I do what I want“ doesn’t count.

Avoid cash payments. Often, scammers will use pressure tactics asking you to pay a large portion of the total up front and in cash. Use of any high pressure, scare or threatening sales tactics should immediately raise concern. This is home repair, not the final episode of “24”.....remember that show?

As always, if you get something that tickles your spidey sense, give us a call and we’ll be happy to come and check it out.

Don’t trust Angie’s List just saying they call small businesses to join them

As a business owner in the Construction field this is important know who you hire and let in to your home. References references a very very important ( As most of our work is done in Loudoun County) take the tips listed above ☝️

http://www.dpor.virginia.gov/LicenseLookup/

Awesome information. Thanx

Thanks for the information.

If I didn't call for a contractor, then I will not let anyone do work for me.

Would be nice to know who to stay away from....

A flame from the stack and smoke rolling black as coal is only cool if you’re Dave Dudley. Otherwise, your chimney is probably on fire.

Before you start that stove up for the winter, have it cleaned and inspected by a certified chimney technician. Shoutout to the guys over at Co. 12, it’s fire prevention month, ya know!

Dawn Morgan Check with your insurance company to see who they recommend or search on this site: https://www.csia.org

Do u have a number or recommendation for a technician. We clean our chimney every year and double check our fire alarms before starting our inside woodstove but getting the chimney checked would add piece of mind.

I had to Google Dave Dudley! Now I get it!😂 Lol!

A growing cultural concern of the 21st century, hoarding is not just extravagant collecting or extreme messiness. Hoarders experience intense distress at the thought of getting rid of their excessive accumulations of stuff, regardless of actual value. These instances can pose health risks for the affected person as well as emergency personnel who may be called upon to help in a time of need.

Shenandoah County Parks & Recreation will be hosting a community forum on hoarding on Thursday, November 29 at the Government Center, 600 N. Main Street from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. The forum is free of charge and open to the public.

Register by or before November 8 by calling Parks & Rec at 540-459-6777.

This might be good for friends and family of hoarders. True hoarding is a mental health issue that is not easily fixed. It presents a tremendous problem for the hoarder, for emergency personnel, etc. It is a good idea to get information out there to Help people understand what hoarding actually is and why people do it

Let’s get this guy back to his house, as he’s taken it upon himself to take an unsupervised field trip.

He showed up on Eagle Street with no collar and he has a white patch on his belly. He was running with a grayish-black terrier mix who also didn’t have a collar on but the terrier mix ran off before they got a picture.

Share this, spread the word and if you know where he belongs, call Dispatch at 459-6101.
