A quick call or knock on the door is often appreciated. In the event that a shelter is deemed necessary, please share that information with your neighbors who may not have access to social media or cell phones.

NOTIFICATION OF ALCOHOL COMPLIANCE CHECKS
Over the course of the next couple months, the Norwell Police Department will be conducting compliance checks at all licensed alcohol establishments in Norwell to determine if licensed establishments are illegally selling alcohol to those under 21. The purpose of the compliance checks is intended to educate licensees and the public, and to ensure the regulations are consistently followed and applied. It is in the community’s best interest for all to be aware of, and to understand the benefits of complying with the laws and regulations governing the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages
Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
The Norwell Police Department is announcing our participation in the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over 2014 Holiday Campaign. Norwell Police will be out in full force from December 1, 2014 through January 1, 2015 to protect our roads by arresting anyone caught driving while under the influence. Norwell Police Department will join other local law enforcement agencies and the Mass State Police to run extra patrols through the New Year as part of the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over mobilization, funded by a federal grant administered through the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s Highway Safety Division.
Norwell Police will be intensifying enforcement and will be especially vigilant during nights and weekends when impaired drivers are most likely on our roads. We recommend you plan a safe way home before the festivities begin. If you happen to see an impaired driver on the road, please contact law enforcement. Norwell Police would like everyone to have a safe holiday season. Please remember, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

CHILD PASSENGER RESTRAINT INSTALLATION
Children must be properly restrained in order to decrease the likelihood that they will suffer serious injury in the event of a vehicle collision. Massachusetts Child Passenger Safety Law requires that all children riding in passenger motor vehicles must be in a Federally-approved child passenger restraint that is properly fastened and secured until they are 8 years old or over 57 inches tall. All other occupants not in this category must wear a safety belt, which is properly adjusted and fastened according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
If you would like to schedule an appointment, please contact Norwell Police Department at (781) 659-7979. There are day and evening appointments available. Please remember to buckle up for safety.
