Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson would like to remind all Rayville citizens of the importance of obeying the laws of society.
“Laws and rules are put into place for the safety and well- being of all,” the chief said.
Chief Robinson advised that for every action, there comes a reaction; for every law broken, there is a consequence.
“Some consequences may be relatively light, such as a small monetary fine or some hours of community service,” the chief said. “However, some consequences are more severe and longer lasting.”
The chief encourages all citizens to contact his office and request assistance of an officer if you have a situation that is beyond your control.
Chief Robinson would also like to advise citizens to follow all traffic laws, observe posted speed limits and make sure your driver’s license, motor vehicle inspection, vehicle registration and auto insurance are current.
“Failure to keep all of your necessary documents can result in large fines,” said the Chief.
Chief Robinson encourages all citizens to come by the Rayville Police Department at 900 Harrison St. or to call 728-4431 if you need his help in any way.
