Williston Police prepare for planned demonstrations


The Williston Police Department is aware of demonstrations being planned for today at Harmon Park. We have been in contact with the organizers of said events and have had productive dialogue. We understand there is a great deal of concern amongst our community considering recent escalated violence and riots across the nation. We ask the citizens of Williston to not follow suit. We fully support the 1st Amendment right to peacefully assemble.

The Williston Police Department would like to remind all that the parking lot of Harmon Park closes at 9:30 p.m. and that all city parks close at dusk, approximately 10:30 p.m.

The Williston Police Department will not tolerate violence, property damage, threats or other criminal actions by anyone. We also ask that you show respect to your fellow citizens and community.
