The Victoria Police Officers Association is volunteering to paint reflective address numbers on residents’ curbs to help improve emergency response times.

There is no cost for the service, but VPOA will accept donations to help with its programs. Residents who would like to have curbs painted in their neighborhoods or who would like to make a donation may contact VPOA at victoriapoa_306@gmail.com or on Facebook at Victoria Police Officers Association & Blue Santa.

May 8, officers will go door to door in requested neighborhoods to ask residents if they want to have their curbs painted. The association hopes to continue painting curbs on a quarterly basis.
