In recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Historical Background: In 1960 King and his family moved to Atlanta, his native city, where he joined his father as co-pastor of the Ebenezer Baptist Church. This new position did not stop King and his SCLC colleagues from becoming key players in many of the most significant civil rights battles of the 1960s. Their philosophy of nonviolence was put to a particularly severe test during the Birmingham campaign of 1963, in which activists used a boycott, sit-ins and marches to protest segregation, unfair hiring practices and other injustices in one of America’s most racially divided cities.

The 3rd Annual Christmas Presents for the Little Residents was able to help 15 households with gifts for their children. The total number of kids that received donations were 27 children. That came to an approximation of 6 items per child! We could not be more pleased, but it truly was a team effort! Thank you to everyone who donated. Also, a special thank you to the Dermott Day Care Programs - York Williams and Dermott Head Start. And finally to DHS - Lake Village, for always assisting us. It was a privilege to be able work with you. Every year, I think the dispatchers, officers, and jailer get more excited than the families! With that being said, we thank you and wish you a very Merry Holiday! It's amazing how giving make your heart feel much bigger!

Zero Tolerance Against Bullying DPD would like to say Thank You to the DES staff for allowing Sgt Brown, Officer Coffey, and myself (Ms. Kim) to speak to the K-3rd grade & 6th grade classes on bullying. Also, the kids who were very receptive to the message. It was a fun time with all the kids along w/ sending a great message. Each kid took a promise not to bully & were given tools on what to do if they are being bullied. Dermott students are some of the brightest. You can tell that our message was one that was heard before from the staff and/or parents. With this type of teamwork (school, Police Department, and parents), the subject of bullying will be at a 100% Awareness. Thank you to the staff (Mrs. Rodgers and the teachers) for allowing us some classroom time to speak on a very important subject.

Congratulations are in order: After many weeks of studying and testing, physical fitness training early in the morning, and countless hours away from his love ones. Officer Lee Van Brown has completed the police academy. He has graduated ALETA and is our newest certified officer! Congratulations sir! You put in the hard work and you have been rewarded with your Officer Certification!!!
