The power is back on and Susan is at her desk. Breaks over, time to punch the time clock.

We got to work today only to find that there is no power, classic case of the Monday’s. Our office will be closed to the public until the power is restored.

We want to wish Bill Collins the best in his retirement. Bill is a wealth of knowledge who helped everyone here at one point or another as we were just getting started in our careers.

Enjoy your newfound spare time, especially on three wheels. We’ll miss you!

Strasburg Police Department
We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Investigator William C. “Bill” Collins, who officially entered retirement today.

Investigator Collins served in the United States Army from 1984-1992 before entering law enforcement. Between 1992 and 2019, he served the citizens of Strasburg, Edinburg, and Shenandoah County. Throughout his career, Investigator Collins served the community in a number of capacities: Dispatch, Patrol, Patrol Supervisor, K9 Handler, and most recently as an Investigator assigned to the Northwest Virginia Regional Drug Task Force.

Investigator Collins: from all of us at Strasburg Police Department, enjoy your well-earned retirement. This isn’t goodbye; it’s just “see you later.”

Rand has every right to be upset, identity theft is no joke. Nance is known to make some online purchases after a couple glasses of Boones Farm.

Just today we had an unknown individual spoof our Police Department’s phone number to call a local citizen demanding Google Play cards to avoid arrest.

Burn it into your minds folks... Trust, but Verify.

So chances are, if you're reading this, you follow our Facebook page. It’s a pretty accurate glimpse into daily life here at the Woodstock Police Department, only the real thing is better.

We’re hiring.

If you want to work for a great place with awesome benefits, a supportive environment that focuses just as much on personal development as departmental interests and has a fire Facebook page, come put in an application.

If you want to advance your career, if you want to serve a prosperous and growing community and if you want to drive sweet black and whites, come talk to us.

If you are unsure, talk to some people. Not just us but others who work for the Town and citizens who live here, ask anyone. They’ll tell you there is no better place. Sure, the job is difficult some days but there’ll be more days when you think to yourself “man, what a good day....and I’m getting paid, too!” There’s no better way to say it than this; we’ve constantly got rice cooking in the microwave at the Police Department.

What are you waiting on? Submit an app. Join our family. We have cookies.

Seriously. Dispatch made us cookies......they’re delicious. Thank you 😘

We’re waiting for you!Employment Opportunity! We are currently inviting applications for the position of Police Officer within our Police Department. For more information or to apply, please visit www.townofwoodstockva.gov/jobs.

Sounds like a great place to work, but who cooks rice in the microwave?

I put an application in everytime the town hires, guess you have to have a certain last name or know somebody

Do you have to be 21 to apply? Or can you just be sent through the academy once you turn 21?

Thought about it but wife says no lol

On behalf of the Woodstock Police Department, we want to extend our deepest appreciation for our teachers. From the time we were knee high to a grasshopper through each of us becoming young adults and going out into the world, we were influenced by teachers. Some taught us academics, others taught us about life. Without them, none of us would be where we are today.

We encourage you to tag a teacher who holds a special place in your memories in this post, let them know how they influenced you.

Thank you Sara. You were a student that all teachers wish to have.

Mrs. Garman. I'm thanking her for having the courage and intense patient's with all of her student's. We were never cooperative and always causing trouble but she saw something great in each of us. She was very loving and most would consider her as a misunderstood person, but nobody could understand me better than her. She was a remediation teacher but the only thing I consider her as was a friend that told me..." Be brave, be kind, and be you, because I love you." I will never forget her. She coached me through some hard times. Thank you Mrs. Garman!!

I thank my second grade teacher, Linda Murphy, and my fourth grade teacher, Mary Livesay Kent, for instilling the love of learning in my young heart! Because of these two ladies I am a teacher today! ❤️

Thank you!!!I am a Fairfax County transplant and l teach art here for the County!l used to Judge art for scholarships,as we'll l'm an award winning artist!!!😃😃😃

Mr.Donald Downey made a great impact on my life. I have the upmost respect for him and his wife Mrs.Frances Downey. They are two of the greatest teachers ever. God Bless them both.

Michael Brown thanks for being one of most memorable& fun teachers!😁

Thad Hockman Rick Lytton You two had more impact on me then you would ever understand. Thank you.

Don't think I'm friends with very many of my old teachers, but I'll name some off. Mrs. Chance, Mrs. Stratton, Mrs. Sanderlin, Mr. Lynch, Mr. McCarthy, Tara Lawson Mason, Becky Sue Staubus Henry, Mr. Ayres. Probably alot more that I forgot. You know who you are!!

Pamela Stewart Sperry, you will always hold a special place in my heart! I will never forget our special times in elementary school!

Thanks Becky Sue Staubus Henry! You were the best! I wasn't the easiest to get along with but you never gave up on me. I'll never forget the values and lessons you instilled in me. I appreciate everything. Thank you!

Michele Harbison-Hepner I know you made an impact on my daughter Jamison Cook life.Thank you ❤️

Sherry Eastep Heishman for the little things like the proper spelling of “opportunity” and the big things like working for what you want. Heather Harrington Walters for giving me my first love of international travel and always having the best smile and her husband(for some reason I can’t tag) for teaching me that no one can tell me what I can and can’t do except myself!

We poke a lot of fun at each other’s expense but there are no braver men and women than our firefighters. There have been many a night where they have gone above and beyond in helping us, often with things that would be classified as “police matters” for the sole reason that we’re all on the same team; the team that protects our citizens.

We hope this post notification didn’t wake them up from their nap. If it did, then I’m sure they’ll just wash another layer of paint off their trucks.

RSW is showing up, are you?On Saturday, May 18, 2019, officers from RSW Regional Jail will be taking part in Woodstock Police Department's 8th Annual Community Wellness and Safety Day, and hope to defend our firetruck pull championship, which benefits the Special Olympics!

We are very proud to partner with Woodstock PD and other agencies from the area to raise money for such a worthy cause. The Special Olympics provides individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in sporting events that they may otherwise not have been able to participate. These athletes work hard and put forth a tremendous amount of effort into seeing themselves for their abilities, not disabilities. The athletes are part of a community that celebrates their accomplishments and enables them to be part of a community that is full of understanding and acceptance.

We will be accepting donations in the lobby, during normal business hours, until Thursday, May 16, 2019. 100% of all donations will go to the Special Olympics.

If you have any questions, please contact Sergeant Brittney Musterman at brittney.musterman@rswregionaljail.com or by phone at 540-622-5004.

Thank you for helping us support such a wonderful event!

We often speak about scams. We do this to offer a constant reminder about why you should never give out personal information over the phone. As always, be sure to pass this on to your family and neighbors.

Here is an example of how these scams effect a larger population.

The New York City Police Department “is warning the public to be on guard against scam phone calls from those who falsely claim to be from the Social Security Administration or a local, state or federal law enforcement agency.” NYPD seeks increase awareness of the scam and to remind people to hang up the phone. This year “the NYPD has received over 200 complaints with losses totaling more than $2 million,” up from three complaints last year. NYPD Community Affairs Chief Nilda Hofmann warned, “These criminals are targeting every strata of society, and every demographic is vulnerable.”

I got a scam letter in the mail today. It has Shenandoah County Treasurer on top from a Cindy George. Something about property taxes on vehicle I already paid for....

Beware of Medicare.com claiming they are Medicare. When I get scam callers that manage to to get through and they ask me for someone who is in our household I tell them I'm sorry they are not here, would you like the number where they can be reached? They always say yes so I give them the local Winchester PD's number.

Yep, got this one. They say that your social security number has been suspended.

They spoof caller id to seem local. They ask you for the number of your local police station. They verify it online. Then in a few minutes the same idiot with terrible English will call you with caller ID showing the local police - complete with wailing siren in the background. 😄

🚨 Traffic Alert 🚨 

Expect delays on S. Main near MMA as crews repair a leaking water main.

May of 1996. The Chicago Bulls had just clinched the NBA title and the entire country was preparing for the Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta.

In Woodstock, Susan Clem was beginning a new job as the administrative professional for the Woodstock Police department. All calls for service were logged on half sheets of paper and filed away. Case reports were a fewer in both number and pages. The phone may have rang five times a day. Twice a month, She had to gather up a few cases and accident reports for court. When the sound of Chief Miller’s desk drawer could be heard, Susan knew that the day was over. She said her goodbyes to the on duty officers and headed home.

Over the last twenty three years so much has changed. Reports are computerized, merged between separate programs for case management, dispatching and evidence. The phone doesn’t stop ringing and the increase in call volume have made the complaint cards obsolete, as they are too labor intensive. Chief Miller retired, the squeaky drawer was replaced and we have twice as many officers.

We still have Susan. We hope we will always have her. She has grown with the department through all of its changes and although her workload has increased exponentially, she still comes upstairs to say goodbye each night. She still gathers up our court case files. She makes sure we check the right boxes on our reports and if we forget, she will do it for us. If you look hard you can still see 1996 around the office; susan’s emergency contact file is the most comprehensive and detailed around.....and it’s all in a 3-ring binder.

Susan became and remains the face and voice this department; there’s no mistaking that “Woodstock Police Department” when you call in; its as famous as hearing “This is CNN”. Through her hard work and caring attitude she has given herself a reputation throughout the community; people don’t say “I’ll call in tomorrow for that”, they say “I’ll talk to Susan, tomorrow”.

Times change, not always for the better. When government service became “just another number” Susan along with the town, decided that wouldn’t happen here. She goes the extra mile to make sure everyone feels valued and appreciated, citizens and officers alike.

Thank you, Susan. Your contributions to this department are more valuable than you will ever know and without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

Some nights, we all meet up at dispatch; some nights there’s snacks, other nights they’ve cooked us a meal to pick at as we pass through. We hang out, shoot the breeze, laugh and joke. It helps us to have a few light-hearted moments. It helps to have a strong family bond in this job.

Then there *those* nights. The nights when we bounce from call to call. Not just us, but four other law enforcement agencies…five if you split the Sheriff’s Office patrol sectors. Nine fire departments, eight rescue squads. Probably close to one hundred first responders between us all. Nights where you have to wait to talk on the radio, nights where you let others talk because what they have going on is more important. Trees and lines down, medical emergencies, crashes on the interstate, disturbances, drunk drivers. All of it happening at once.

All of these incidents and the resources dedicated to them are managed by four, sometimes three and even sometimes two people in a small room full of maps, computers and other technology. They are hardly ever seen but often heard. Their job is one of the most difficult in the business; to take a 911 call from a frantic individual who needs help during the worst moment of their life then to regain composure to give the call out on the radio. To hear your responders asking for help and knowing the only thing you can do is send it, but you’d much rather get up from your chair and race to aid them. The stress of this “up and down” is exhausting and they do it for 12hrs a day.

They sit behind a console with multiple computer screens that show everything that is happening in the county. Their console controls every radio frequency so they can multi-task. Their hands move with a speed and skill that is beyond most people. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to function; we wouldn’t receive information that could save lives, including our own. We wouldn’t be able to provide the service to the citizens that we do.

They often say the most stressful part of their job is not being there to help us…”there” being on-scene with us. Let us be the first to say that they are with us from the beginning of our shift to the end; through the good times and the bad. Their dedication to the community does not go unnoticed, nor does it go unappreciated. We want to thank our dispatchers for all they do. You mean more to us than you will ever know.

We got a report about someone in Arizona calling to scam the fine citizens of Woodstock. First thing they did was ask for a SSN.

Please, never, ever give personal information out. No matter what they say, legitimate businesses use legitimate business methods. Always ask for a call back number, hang up and do some research.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call.

I think the IRS wants all of us in the county. They’ve called my cell my landline and my kid this week 😂

In the last week I got a call saying they kidnapped my daughter (I only have sons), that Microsoft was suspending my account (what account?) and that the IRS is coming for me. One week.

I work in a hospital, and we call patients ahead of their surgery date to get their demographic info and therefore, save them time on surgery date. Whenever I ask a patient for their ssn, I always tell them that they can refuse to give it to me, and they can give it in person if they wish. So glad Medicare cards no longer use ssn.

Thank you for the warning we have scammers

Thank you for sharing

I got about 5 calls from this number 2097306281 about the SSN. They wanted my name I said u know so much u should have called i.d. and u should know who I am. Then I told them this was an emergency that someone had my SSN and they needed to help me. They kept telling me to call my local police department but I told them that they said they were the ones to help me they told me never call back. I told them how bout u never call me again. Then got 3 more calls from them

Thank you for the information.

There’s a house on the corner of muhlenburg and locust that has a dog similar to this one. I’ve seen the owners dog escape from him a few times there lol could be his. If you go up past the funeral home to the stop light. And go straight across the road, it’s the first house on the left I think.

Today is a special day here in our town. Today is Art LaFlam's 75th Birthday.

You see Mr. LaFlam on the bridge during every holiday that honors our country and those who make our way of life possible. Long before this, a half-a-world away, Mr. LaFlam served his country proudly in the Vietnam Conflict. His time in Southeast Asia further cemented his dedication and love for this country and its citizens.

No matter the weather, Mr. LaFlam will be on the bridge reminding us that the freedom we all enjoy has come at a great price; the sacrifice of so many young men and women on battlefields across this great earth.

Mr. LaFlam, thank you. Thank you for your service to our country and thank you for reminding us that it sometimes takes everything to keep evil off our shores. We are honored to have you as a pillar of our community.

Happy Birthday, Sir.

Thought they were doing it last week?

On Wednesday, we moved our fitness center to its new home at the Woodstock Fire Department. In addition to the equipment we have already purchased, we were gifted some awesome machines by Valley Health Wellness and Fitness.

The only catch was we had to move it! With help from some big dudes and heavy equipment from Public Works, we were able to get everything set up today. Some of you all may have noticed the commotion and the forklift moving things into the second story of the FD around lunchtime. It was a trick to see.

We want to extend our deepest gratitude to Valley Health Wellness and Fitness for their donation of the equipment, to the Woodstock Rescue Squad for allowing us to use their spare room for the last few years, to the Woodstock Fire Department for allowing us to make this our new home, to our Woodstock Public Works crew for being so impressively helpful and efficient and to the Town of Woodstock for the continued support in achieving peak fitness and wellness for all employees.

Today, we want to take a moment to recognize the women of the Woodstock Police Department.

Susan Clem, our Department Secretary is our paperclip; she holds everything together. No matter what we need, shes always there to find it for us and her cheerful attitude brightens our day.

Laura Shelton, our Accreditation Manager is our "woman behind the scenes". The amount of work that goes into maintaining accreditation is amazing and she is *the* person for this task. Laura never gets a break; as soon as one assessment is complete, its time to start on another.

Anne Rutz, our Parking Enforcement Officer, is the face of the department. She can be found walking Main Street, interacting with citizens and business owners. Everyone knows Anne and she always takes a few moments out of her rounds to speak with people as they go about their day.

Arianna Smootz is our newest Patrol Officer. Arianna comes from a family of public servants and brings with her a knowledge of the county and its people. Arianna is a bright and eager new officer, ready to make a career in police work and is an asset to this department.

These women are an integral part of this Department and without them, we wouldn't be able to offer the level of service to you, the citizens and visitors of our town.

Thank you for all you do!!

Hey y’all,

If you’re out walking around our wonderful town, please use the sidewalks if they are available. If not, walk facing traffic. Telephone lines are reserved for squirrels, Indian Spring is for the ducks.

It’s also not a safe idea to walk with your nose to your screen, a pole might jump out and get you. The same goes for wearing your Beats; rocking out to T-Swift is cool but you might need to hear something other than her latest boyfriend drama set to a catchy tune.

If you’re out at night, light colors help you stand out, even with our awesome streetlights. In all seriousness, we don’t want to have to tell a loved one you were hit because you were walking with traffic along the roadway, texting and listening to your headphones while wearing all black.

Be careful out there.

Thank you so much for this very important reminder. And... thank you for everything you do for our community.

A 15 year old was hit by a train in Elkton just yesterday. He was walking on the track with headphones on. Headphones and traffic is not a good thing.

Awesome streetlights? We've been trying to get the street light on our block fixed for years! All we get is a run around.

Well said, but we've noticed a lot of people around here lack common sense🤔😳

Can you get funds to hand out reflective vests...or pull over and school them on safety? I have two folks that Frequent locust street about this time every night in dark clothes

Not police of course

This is what happens with common core education. The teach them how to pass a test but not how to open the book.

Im sure dominion knows of the issues. They are all over town.

Please use this time to ensure all preparations are complete.

I’m ready for summer.

Radar detector does wonders lol

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

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

Thank god for scanners so I know to slow my illegal ass down 👏🏻

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

Radar, generating income since 1948...

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

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

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

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

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

Got the range maxed out watch out.

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

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

🖕🤣

It is Valentine 1 Day!!

Outstanding job!

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