Illegal Drug Abuse
Heroin has emerged as the leader of recreational drug use due to its cheap price. It is very affordable. Parents need to be vigilant in the observation and supervision of the children to recognize drug use and get early intervention for their child. Parents should also reinforce to their children to not concede to peer pressure to use a drug. Police Chief Brian Paladino and Mayor Alan Beach are concerned with any substance abuse within the Village.

SCAM TO OBTAIN CREDIT CARD INFORMATION
The new scam to obtain your credit card information involves a text message to your telephone advising you of strange activity on your credit card and to call the telephone number listed in the text message.
