Albemarle Police Prepare for Winter Weather

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday's snow will put a strain on police resources in Albemarle County.

Police still have to respond to emergencies across the entire county. As a result, a training session has been canceled along with other non-important events.

If schools close, resource officers will be diverted to the roads.

"People that would routinely be assigned to the office, they are going to be out there and we will answer every single emergency call.  It's just going to take us a little bit of time," said Sergeant Sean Hackney of the Albemarle County Police Department.

As always, police do suggest people limit their driving during the storm, and if you have to be out, take it slow.
