If you see something, say something, says GPD Drew

“If you see something, say something in a timely manner,” advised Chief Morgan Drew, Grangeville Police Department. “People are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.” Drew reminded residents that officers are on duty every day throughout the year to respond to reports of suspicious and criminal activity, and other citizen concerns. This includes holidays, he added, as the office did have a recent comment from a resident that he didn’t contact the office on a matter as he thought GPD would be closed.
