Lamar Police Department News

Lamar Schools participated in a state wide effort to prevent drug and opiod abuse with our young people. Across the state schools showed a video called Chasing The Dragon. We would like to thank Arkansas State Police’s Brenda Stephenson for speaking on behalf of the video. Also, a heartwarming thanks to Debra Dickerson for speaking about her story involving her son. Lamar PD thanks everyone who made today the wonderful event that it became. If we only had one listen, that's one more than we had yesterday!

We would like to extend a HUGE Thanks to Arkansas State Police and the Johnson County Sheriff's Office for coming out to the Lamar School District this morning to assist with bus unloading and car rider drop off. The kids had an amazing time! Special thanks to K9 Loki and Bonnie for always putting a smile on the kids' faces!

We would like to thank the Lamar and Knoxville Fire Department members who came to the school this morning to greet the kids as they got off the bus and car rider lines for Fire Safety Day! When Lamar PD SRO called and asked for their participation for this meet and greet, these men and women, who are volunteers, didn't hesitate to help make children smile first thing this morning! Thank You Again!

**DESIGNATED PARKING / ROAD CLOSINGS FOR 2018 CAR SHOW** The 2018 Lamar Car Show is scheduled for June 2nd, this upcoming Saturday. Please keep in mind the extensive amount of traffic, including pedestrians. Roads around the city park will be closed early in the morning, just before the event begins and can be seen in orange on the map below. The best way to enter for the event is off Hwy 64 onto Cabin Creek Ave (across from Hickeytown Rd). Show cars and vendors can be let into the event area, however, spectators have designated parking that can be seen in blue on the map below. Please be patient and courteous with the individuals parking cars, as they are volunteering their time to help. Lamar Police Department will be present around the event and will have a canopy set up at the intersection of Cabin Creek Ave and Elberta Street if further assistance is needed. Please be aware, no "burn outs" for obvious safety reasons. Let's have a fun and safe car show. We are looking forward to seeing everyone come out! Thank you, Chief Gaston Griggs

*DESIGNATED PARKING FOR 2018 GRADUATION* The Lamar Police Department would like to let everybody know in advance, on May 11th during the graduation ceremony, the parking lot in front of both gyms inside the fenced area will be designated for vehicles with a disabled/handicapped placard or license plate. The parking in front of the Lamar Elementary Building and playground will also be designated for the same purpose. Traffic will be allowed to drive through the designated area to drop off passengers near the front doors. Vehicular traffic will be heavy and congested at times and a large amount of pedestrian traffic will be present. We ask that everyone be patient and cautious as they make their way to the ceremony. Officers will be present to help keep the traffic moving and to assist those who are unaware of the changes in the parking. We look forward to sharing a safe and memorable evening with you all. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Chief Gaston Griggs
