Summons Meter


That's how many people were busted by the Westbrook Police Department for traffic-related crimes* between March 13-March 20, according to the latest batch of the American Journal's 'Westbrook Police Notes.'

In fact, since the Westbrook Police designated one of its officers to full-time traffic duty in late January, the list of traffic-related summons in the American Journal's 'Westbrook Police Notes' has grown more dense. No, check that: The number of summons has exploded!

In closing, I advise you to follow the advice I dished out a little over a month ago. Consider it my (enter fine total) dollar gift to you.
