‘Tis the Season…

The holiday season is a time of celebration and often brings families closer together. For some it can be a season of great expectations, and many individuals find themselves feeling they are not meeting those expectations.

Every year the police department responds to calls for service during the holidays which are not so merry. The stress of the holiday season can be the precursor for domestic situations as well as mental health calls for service. While buying gifts, making meals, and decorating are all important aspects of the holiday season, showing your love and support to those around you is the most important of all holiday considerations.

Taking the time out of our busy schedules to talk with our loved ones and neighbors might make more of a difference than you realize. If you feel they may be in a time of need, please don’t hesitate to call for assistance. Remember, a smile is contagious and might just brighten someone’s day who really needs it.
