A timely reminder from Yarmouth Police:


With the recent blizzard and powerful winds, please take a moment to check your American flag and replace it immediately if it is tattered, torn, faded, and no longer serviceable.

If you own a home or a business and fly an American flag in the town of Yarmouth we thank you!

Any American flag that is no longer serviceable can be dropped off at YPD Headquarers anytime and we will dispose of them properly and with honor.

Anyone who would like a free hand-held American flag can stop by YPD Headquarters any time and pick up as many as you would like.
