Suspicious Vehicle Suspicious Person Worksheet NCPD
Call 911 about a suspicious person or vehicle. If you choose not to call, try to write down what you observed so that IF you hear about a crime, you can then call and give the police the details you observed. Attached are two handy 'worksheets' to print off and keep in a convenient place for future use that help you make better casual and safe observations. NEVER put yourself in harm's way to get more details than what you are able to casually and safely observe.

Pharmaceutical Disposal Sites (Shed the Meds): Excess and expired medicines are a hazard in your home and require special disposal. DO NOT dispose of medications in your drains or normal trash... they seep into our underground water supplies, and if left in medcine cabinets can be potentially harmful to you and your family. Nassau County Police hold community events throughout the year at specific location. Additionally, NCPD provides a pharmaceutical disposal collection bin in the lobby of all precincts. Nearest lobby is 3rd Pct North Division at 100 Community Drive, Manhasset NY.

West Nile Spraying is conducted as needed with notification to affected communities. Currently there are no scheduled activity and this message will be updated if/when it is scheduled. Last spraying was conducted in Aug 2014. When it occurs, sraying is done by ground trucks engaged by Nassau County Dept of Health. Recognized recommendations:

- Individuals, especially pregnant women and children, should remain inside during the treatment period and for about 30 minutes afterwards. One should also:

- Keep windows & doors shut. Turn off window fans. Set AC's to recirculate; close fresh air intake vent, if able.

- Keep children’s toys indoors.

- Keep pets indoors, as well as their food, water dishes and toys.

- Cover any 'live fish ponds' during the spraying hours.

- Vegetable gardens:  if being picked on day after spraying, wash vegetables.

Since the effects of the ground treatment dissipate in a few hours, it is not necessary to wash off outdoor furniture or playground equipment before use, although doing so will not diminish the effectiveness of the pesticide applied. More detail on Nassau County Website (link)
