Great job to our awesome Lawrence Police Explorers Scouts, and to all who helped ensure the Indy Half Marathon at Fort Ben was a safe, successful event!

Recently, LPD's Sgt Reuss was asked to join Mrs Nix's kindergarten class at Brooks School Elementary in Fishers. Sgt Reuss brought coloring books for the kids with safety lessons, and answered a terrific list of questions the kids presented. Thank You to Mrs Nix, her terrific kindergartner's, and to Sgt Reuss for representing LPD, and the law enforcement profession. Well Done, all!

Diligent investigation by LPD's first responding officers, detectives, and the Marion County Crime Lab, assisted by Noblesville Police Department investigators. http://cbs4indy.com/2017/10/11/lawrence-police-make-arrest-in-stabbing-death-on-christmas-eve/

Thank You to Pastor Rafael “Dito” Padro (Founder and Pastor of Missions with the 12 Stones Fellowship at 12130 Pendleton Pike) for delivering Jockamo Upper Crust Pizza Irvington from their Lawrence location to the Lawrence Police Department this afternoon! Pastor Padro and the 12 Stones Fellowship congregation made this delivery/gesture as a demonstration of support for the work LPD officers do, and the risks LPD officers take, every day to keep the community safe. We're grateful, and thankful, for 12 Stones Fellowship generosity and thoughtfulness, along with the good work they are doing in the community as well!

Congratulations to the Lawrence Township Football League 5th/6th Grade BILLS football team for winning the Super Bowl Saturday League Championship.

But they stayed strong, kept working hard, and with grit and determination, they made it to, and WON, the big game! From all Lawrence Police Officers… “WAY TO GO, BILLS… you never give up!” Special Thank You to all of the volunteers and coaches for sharing their time and energy with these players.

LPD, represented by DC Woodruff & Det Hinshaw, joined friends & colleagues from Marion County Prosecutor's Office, and Beech Grove PD, supporting our partners Beacon of Hope Crisis Center at their #GiveAbusetheBoot annual event yesterday. Beacon of Hope Crisis Center is a confidential and safe place where individuals who are or have been a victim of domestic violence and/or sexual assault can receive advocacy services and referrals. Advocates assist with safety planning and let victims know what is available for them within the agency or an agency partner service providers They advocate in many ways, including helping with filings and paperwork, court accompaniment, helping to find a bed in a domestic violence shelter when that is needed, fostering pets while victim(s) are in shelter, helping with the healing process, counseling, steps toward independence and self-sufficiency for long-term improved quality of life. Beacon of Hope Crisis Center provides an invaluable victims service & advocacy resource for LPD to make referrals to.

Shout Out to IMPD News North District Commander Josh Barker who joined us for National Coffee with a Cop Day! LPD's relationships with our IMPD News friends & colleagues have never been better. Great Relationships = Improved Public Safety.

Thanks also to our Community Prosecutor from the Marion County Prosecutor's Office, Sharon Ely, for attending National Coffee with a Cop today!

We were honored to be joined for Coffee with a Cop today by retired Lawrence Mayor Bob Sterrett! Always great to visit with Mayor Sterrett.

We felt this photo illustrates the purpose of Coffee with a Cop perfectly. Coffee with a Cop brings police officers and the community members they serve together–over coffee–to discuss issues and learn more about each other.

Had a great National Coffee with a Cop Day event today! Thank you to all who came out to join us! Special Recognition to Panera Bread, 9145 E 56th St, for their terrific hospitality!
