Last week, I found a white Durham Police Balloon with your logo and printed with the 'leaders in community safety ' slogan. I was curious and did a .search on your location. This balloon was found here in my yard in Akron, NY. Akron is located between Buffalo and Rochester. The balloon is very tattered , evidently it had quite a long trip airborne before it landed here. Just thought you might like to know how far your message teavels. Good Luck

Editor's Note: That's amazing! Thanks for letting us know. I'll send your message out to all our officers...

It turns out we were handing out helium balloons to kids during the fall fairs in Port Perry, Uxbridge and Beaverton, Ontario. That's at least 167 miles of travel, direct route!
