Blowing Rock Police will be saying farewell to one of our officers this week.

Officer Zach Warren will work his last shift on Sunday night.

Warren has worked for Blowing Rock Police since June 2011. He has plans to be married in the spring and has accepted a position that will be closer to his fiancée and family.

Best wishes to Warren as he begins this new chapter.

NCIC training   
Officer Deyton Turpin and I are attending National Criminal Intelligence Network training this week.

NCIC is the federal database that law enforcement officers across the country rely on for information.
Information such as criminal records, stolen vehicles, DMV records, concealed weapons permits, boat registrations and more can be accessed by law enforcement officers.

Before the database may be accessed, officers must complete one or more training modules administered by the State Bureau of Investigation. Training can last from two to four days depending on the level of access requested. Every officer at Blowing Rock Police Department is required to complete the training. Once the training is complete, BRPD officers can access the database from computers at the police station or on Mobile Data Terminals in their vehicles.

One minor vehicle collision was reported last week. The collision occurred on Jan. 12 in the Woodlands parking lot on Valley Boulevard.

Officer Anthony Biard reported that a vehicle driven by Maria Ruth Lichtman of Boone struck a parked vehicle while leaving a parking space.

Citations and calls
Citations issued last week included one speeding citation and five citations for driving while license revoked or having no operator’s license.

In all, Blowing Rock Police responded to 45 calls for service last week and conducted 25 special property watches.
