Calm 4th of July for Cody PD
Written by Andrew-Rossi on July 7, 2017
It was a relatively calm 4th of July celebration for the Cody Police Department.
Although there were more calls for service than last year in the same period, from June 30 to July 4, there were fewer arrests than last year, according to Police Lieutenant Jason Stafford. He said there were six arrests and 298 calls for service this year, compared to an average of 10 arrests over the last three years. Only one injury was reported during the five-day celebration, a teenager who was hurt trying to get on a parade float.
Stafford says that he believes citizens are taking more precautions, and making plans for when they celebrate.
Stafford noted that the department had a full complement of officers on hand for the celebration, as all days off were cancelled during this time. However, he added that the department will soon be a man short, as Detective Ron Parduba will be retiring.
