I wanted to pull in... behind him and confront him myself, but thought I had better call the Caribou PD.
The Officer I spoke with assured me that someone would be sent to speak with the individual
I am proud of, and am very confident in, our local police.
I hope the chat they had with this idiot changes his behavior.
Thank you, Caribou PD!

We are now (hopefully) approaching spring weather! With the warmer temperatures people are going to start working on home improvement projects.
One simple, but very important improvement that you can do in seconds is adding reflective house numbers to your residence....
By putting reflective house numbers on your residence, in the event of an emergency it would greatly improve response time of first responders. It would prevent us from driving around looking for the correct house, especially at night! We do love searching games, but this is a game we don’t like. We want to be able to respond as quick as possible no matter the circumstances. We recommend that you use 5-6” reflective numbering and make sure it is a high visible location and not obstructed. Believe it or not there is actually a city ordinances for this! See below.
According to the Caribou Municipal Code Chapter 11 Article 6 Section 11-603 states the all residence will be numbered properly. Specifically the number must be at least 6’ off the ground, the number shall not be less than 4”, numbers should contrast the building color (again we highly recommend reflective numbers), numbers should be affixed on or near the front entrance, numbers be unobstructed, numbers should also be displayed at the end of each driveway at least 60” off the ground and no smaller than 4”. You can be assessed penalties for not meeting the requirements for this ordinance.
For more details please visit the City of Caribou website - government- city charters/ ordinances- section number above.
Please make sure that you have inspected your vehicle as we are still seeing blue inspection stickers! It is your choice of $148.00 versus $15.00!
Announcements: Caribou Police Department website coming soon, so stay tuned!
On April 11, 2018 Officer Ricky Pelletier of the Caribou Police Department along with Troopers of the Maine State Police and the Aroostook County Sheriffs Office spoke with the parents of students who attend the Woodland School to speak with them about the ALICE Training Program. ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. ALICE is a proactive and progressive response to all Organizations in the event of an aggressive intruder or active shooter event. The... ALICE Training Program in schools consists of first teaching the school staff about the history of active shooter events and how the ALICE Training Program gives the staff and students more options in the event of an active shooter. Afterward staff are put through different hands on drills to practice the different ALICE responses for an active shooter situation. Secondly there is a community night where local citizens can come and learn about the ALICE Training Program and finally the students of the Schools are instructed about the ALICE Training Program and put through some scenarios on how to react to a potentially dangerous situation.
This ALICE Training Program will be coming to the Caribou School District later this month. If you have any questions regarding ALICE, you can contact Officer Ricky Pelletier firstname.lastname@example.org.
