The Brockport Police wants to remind drivers about the parking limitations now that winter snow storms are hitting our area. Vehicles that are parked on the street or in closed lots during snow storms or the days after, are subject to tow. As a reminder, no vehicle can be parked on any village street between 2a.m. and 6a.m. or in any closed public parking lot. The reason that vehicles are subject to tow, is so that Brockport DPW can clear the road or the parking lots of all the snow. It is a safety concern when snow is left in an area where a vehicle was parked. To determine if the parking lots are open, please refer to the signs that are in each public parking lot. The public parking lots are located at the Brockport Police Department (1 Clinton Street), behind Chase bank (parking lot between King Street and Erie Street), next to the Frontier Tower (Eire Street Lot), all parking lots on Water Street, and the Brockport Fire Department parking lot (38 Market Street). If anyone has any questions on where you can park on any night, please call 9-1-1 and ask to speak to an available Brockport Police Officer.

Now that darker weather is upon us, the Brockport Police Department wants to remind pedestrians and drivers the dangers of the roadway. Pedestrians, when walking during dark times of the day, should wear bright and vibrant colors to be seen by drivers. Doing this will increase your chances of being seen when crossing the road. Pedestrians should also only cross the road at posted crosswalks as New York State Law says that vehicles must stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. Drivers should also be vigilant when approaching crosswalks to ensure that no pedestrians are looking to cross. As mentioned before, it is against New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law to pass through a crosswalk when a pedestrian is attempting to cross. The Brockport Police asks that all pedestrians and drivers remain vigilant to preserve the safety for all.

Within the past year, criminals have been canvassing individuals whom they know at school or work (or through an intermediary) and contact them with the phrase “If you have an ESL card, would you like to make some quick cash? If so, contact me.” Then, the scam works like this…..The suspect agrees to pay the victim a pre-determined “transaction fee” for a check deposit into the victim’s account. The card and pin is then given to the suspect who deposits forged checks into the victim’s ESL account via ATM. The suspect then withdraws real cash from the ATM using the pin and card, ultimately defrauding the bank. Rarely (if ever), does the victim receive any compensation from the suspect or is their card returned to them. The victim in this case is both the bank and person whose card was used. However!!!! Most often, there is an additional step to this scam in which the “victim” is then coached (by the suspect) to tell ESL representatives and local law enforcement that their card was lost and/or stolen so they can then be reimbursed for their “financial loss” by the bank.  In this step, the “victim” becomes a co-conspirator (accomplice) in the bank fraud scheme. Very often we are finding the “victims” were in on the scheme the whole time. Law enforcement is well aware of this scam and is now getting “victims” (later found to be suspects) to admit their involvement in the multi-faceted scheme. It is important to note that this type of fraud can lead to felony charges and that making false reports to the police is a criminal act. If you are aware of a person who is engaging in this scheme, or have helpful information to aid police in our investigations, please contact the Brockport Police Department.
