Lacey police announced this week that the department has instituted an electronic method for township business owners to keep their emergency contact information up-to-date.
"The police department will use this information for after-hour
emergencies at local businesses to contact a designated person should an
issue arise," according to an e-mail from Chief David A. Paprota.
The registry will be a way the department can more "efficiently and effectively serve the public," the chief said.
Reports issued by police indicate that the department responds to a number of calls at township businesses each week.
Most recently, Lacey officers responded to a Manchester Avenue business where burglars forcefully pried open the rear door of the business, breaking the door handle, to gain entrance to the business suite. About $2,400 in power tools were stolen in the Sept. 18 incident.
Two days later, officers responded to a Lacey Road doctor's office where a window was shattered by a projectile, causing $1,342 in damage.
