In response to the sweltering heat enveloping our area, members of the Wake Forest Police Department have begun distributing free bottles of iced water while patrolling the town’s greenways. The bottled water was donated by the Wake Forest Sheetz Convenience Store, located at 1895 S. Franklin St.
Officers regularly patrol the greenways in all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) purchased through a grant.
“Handing out bottles of water to local residents who are using the town’s greenways is a great way for officers to interact with the public, while also providing a service during the extreme heat,” said Wake Forest Police Chief Jeff Leonard.
Any businesses, individuals or families who wish to donate cases of bottled water for distribution may drop them off at the police department located at 225 S. Taylor St.
