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. ...

Thank you for this wonderful tribute and reminder. Thank you, Dispatch Team, for all you do!
Thank you for all you do. You are diffidently special people.
Truly dedicated and we value you all and thank you 💓💙
We're all very grateful for your dedicated service to our "small town" and by the way, let us know when there's a good dish on the counter and a bunch of us will show up for some grub and a chat...
A wonderful tribute to wonderful people! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to our community!!!

We are grateful to live in such a caring and committed community. Thank you to all of our dedicated public employees. You are very much appreciated.
Just knowing all of you appreciate them is one thing that has to help their morale, but let them know that many others are grateful for their choice to serve our communities 🙏🏻 for all of you!

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. ... See MoreSee Less
I think the IRS wants all of us in the county. They’ve called my cell my landline and my kid this week 😂
Thank you for the warning we have scammers
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for sharing

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.

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!! ... See MoreSee Less

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. ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks To All Of The Dispatchers!! You’re Awesome!!❤️❤️❤️
So very, very true. Special Thanks to the Dispatchers for their behind the scene work.
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 ALL for everything you do!

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. ... See MoreSee Less
He called us today at On Second Thought. Said he was from Dominion and we were behind on our bill. We hung up on him since we know how to work in the dark.
I’m not sure who actually runs this page but I feel we should be best friends based on your complete awesomeness....
Thanx for the heads up!
Thank you for the heads up!

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. ... See MoreSee Less
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!!!
Bless you all for looking out for pets

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. 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.
Make sure to stock up on at least A couple days supply of wine ✅

The legal limit in Virginia is .08As you get ready for the New Year’s Eve festivities tonight, here are some helpful lines to keep in mind (the legal limit is actually .08, but that didn’t rhyme).

Friday morning, we were invited to Coach Foltz's house for a breakfast spread that couldn’t be beat.
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. ... See MoreSee Less
