Police chief seeks to assure residents

The city of Buckhannon wants to assure all residents and visitors to our city that its police department, in conjunction with the Upshur County Sheriff’s Department and West Virginia State Police, is taking full measures to maximize safety for all attendees during this weekend’s downtown events.

Residents and visitors should also be assured that no specific threat of violence aimed at any of the events in town has been received by law enforcement, notwithstanding social media reports to the contrary.
