  • James Quinones was selected as Officer of the month. Although he was honored for his volunteerism during May, it was noted that he has been involved in almost every detail during the last year. Besides his work with the Reserve Police, Jim is a senior at college majoring in Criminal Justice.

  • A bicycle/pedestrian accident on 5-1-99 sent the pedestrian to a local hospital. Robert Bybarczyk, O.Park, NY was loading items into his vehicle in front of the Kazoo Factory. He reported that as he turned around he was struck by a 13 year old who was riding on the sidewalk. Rybarczyk was thrown over the handle bars of the bike. He was treated for head & shoulder injuries.

  • An attempted break-in was reported at the Eden Pennysaver. A front door glass was broken and a screwdriver was found that was used to pry the door open.

  • A car fire was extinguished by Eden Police before any serious damage occurred. The owner of the vehicle reported hearing the vehicle backfire and then saw the fire under the hood.

  • Police took several reports of a criminal mischief in the Eden Valley/Mill Road area. Mailboxes have been damaged and 3 windows in vehicles were smashed by thrown rocks. Residents are asked to be more alert and call the police if they observe any unusual events.

  • The Town of Eden Police Department will hold a child car seat check on June 30th from 4 to 7 P.M. at the Eden Town Hall Complex. The Eden Emergency & Rescue Squad and the Eden Fire Department have offered their building bays for these inspections. Studies show that between 85 - 90% of all child safety seats are not installed properly. Safety belts and automobiles are designed primarily for adults. As a result, compatibility problems will occur between child safety seats and the vehicle seats and belts. Because of those problems, and parents not being properly educated in the installation of the child car safety seat, Eden Police are inviting parents to bring their child and seat to use to be inspected. Parents will be instructed on the proper installation of the equipment. More information will be available later this month.
