Why is there an officer at the police department, or why was there not an officer at the police department?

The office hours for the Cherryvale Police Department are from 8AM to 5PM Monday through Friday.

During this time we try to keep an officer at the department to answer the incoming calls, and to talk with people who come in. If there is not an officer in the office during this time it is because they are out on patrol or at a call.

Between 5PM and 8AM officers will usually be out patrolling unless they are at the office working on paperwork.
