Biloxi Police Department preparing for Hurricane Sally

The Biloxi Police Department has plans in place, making sure residents are staying safe during the storm.

There is equipment such as cones, barricades, boats, and high water trucks available for use to help residents in the area.

Also, there will be extra officers to patrol common areas that flood.

Major Chris De Back tells News 25 this is all about working together and staying safe in order to save lives. “The only thing we are asking is that people watch the weather and watch the news. See where the storm is going. Certainly, if we end up blocking off the road because of flooding, don’t go around the cones and pay attention. Don’t drive through high water. If we don’t have barricades up yet, call us and report it.”
