Ramapo Police Urge Caution As Schools Set To Open

RAMAPO, N.Y. -- As schools prepare to open for the start of classes this fall, Ramapo police are reminding drivers to be careful on the roads and watch for children.

Noting that the department considers security at schools a priority, Ramapo police said in a recent statement that its officers have performed more than 1,300 school security checks and nearly 500 school bus safety checks in 2016.

A school bus safety check, police said, is when an officer observes a bus stop to ensure drivers stop when the students get on and off the bus.

Police expect to continue such checks as the school year gets underway.

In other town police news, officers investigated five traffic accidents on Tuesday, including a minor personal injury accident in Monsey.

No injuries were reported in the remaining incidents, which were said to have occurred in Airmont and Wesley Hills with two more occurring in Monsey, according to police.

In total Tuesday, officers responded to 116 calls for service, including 12 medical emergencies, 17 activated alarms, four fire calls and one arrest for a bench warrant, police said.
