WE, the members of the Monticello Police Department are dedicated to providing service through a partnership with our community, which builds TRUST, and enhances the quality of life. “We are not Warriors, We are GUARDIANS of our Community!!!”
Around 1829, Sir Robert Peel (considered the founder of modern-day, community-oriented policing) identified nine principles that he felt were critical to effective law enforcement in a community. His seventh principle states:
“Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”
To us this means that we are all in this together to BALANCE the wheel. “Our best resources is each other!!!” We are always looking to improve and your feedback is greatly appreciated. You can email me at email@example.com
If you reside in the Village of Monticello and own a bicycle, it must be licensed. Bicycles may be licensed at any time at the Monticello police department. There is a $2.00 fee for permanent registry. You will need to bring your bike along when you register.
Bicycles are prohibited on sidewalks.
The Village of Monticello has the following curfew restrictions:
- It shall be unlawful for any person under sixteen (16) years of age to be on foot, bicycle or in any type of vehicle on any public street, avenue, highway, road, alley, park, school grounds, swimming beach, cemetery, play-ground, public building or any other public place in the Village of Monticello between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., unless accompanied by his or her parent or guardian, or person having lawful custody and control of his or her person, or unless there exists a reasonable necessity therefor. The fact that said child, unaccompanied by parent, guardian or other person having legal custody is found upon any such public place during the aforementioned hours shall be prima facie evidence that said child is there unlawfully and that no reasonable excuse exists therefor.
- It shall be unlawful for any person sixteen (16) or seventeen (17) years of age to be on foot, bicycle or in any type of vehicle on any public street, avenue, highway, road, alley, park, school grounds, swimming beach, cemetery, playground, public building or any other public place in the Village of Monticello between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., unless accompanied by his or her parent or guardian, or person having lawful custody and control of his or her person, or unless there exists a reasonable necessity therefor. The fact that said child, unaccompanied by parent, guardian or other person having legal custody is found upon any such public place during the aforementioned hours shall be prima facie evidence that said child is there unlawfully and that no reasonable excuse exists therefor.
(1) This Section shall not apply to a child:
a. Who is performing an errand as directed by his parent, guardian or person having lawful custody.
b. Who is on his own premises or in the areas immediately adjacent thereto.
c. Whose employment makes it necessary to be upon the streets, alleys or public places or in any motor vehicle during prohibited hours.
d. Who is returning home from a supervised school, church or civic function.
(2) These exceptions shall not, however, permit a child to unnecessarily loiter about the streets, alleys or public places or be in a parked motor vehicle on the public streets.
The Green County Sheriff’s Department conducts the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program to Fifth Grade Students at the Monticello Elementary School. This program teaches kids to resist drugs and violence and is conducted by a Green County Sheriff Deputy. The D.A.R.E. program has been proven to be effective tool in combating the growing drug and violence problem in our communities.
Shop With A Cop
The Green County Law Enforcement Administrators’ Association (GCLEAA) has sponsored the “Shop With A Cop” program since 2002. This program is designed to provide kids an opportunity to “Shop With A Cop” to provide their family with Christmas presents, they wouldn’t have been able to receive without the program. The Police Chiefs, Sheriff and other Law Enforcement Administrators of Green County, working with their Officers, the local School Districts, Wal-Mart and other organizations, bring a brighter Christmas to kids each year.
If you would like to make a donation to this worthy cause, you may send a donation made out to “Shop With A Cop” in care of the Monticello Police Department.
