Many of us around our small town of Norton know the happy little face of Payton Janzing, our police officers definitely do! Born in 2011, Payton was diagnosed with autism and high anxiety at a very young age. He has not let his diagnosis beat him. At only 6 years old, Payton has influenced the lives of so many that have come into contact with him. He is constantly smiling through every obstacle that he has faced, and waves his biggest wave at every person and police officer that he sees! Times have been hard for Mr. Payton with multiple medical tests and procedures in his past, present and future. The Norton Police Department is asking for the help of neighboring agencies and the general public. Patches for Payton has been established to attain as many patches as possible from agencies all over Kansas and the United States. The goal is to take the patches that are donated and make a quilt and/or scrapbook for Payton to commemorate the special occasion and the special person that he is! No amount of patches will be enough, so please help us reach out to Law Enforcement agencies near and far. All patches can be sent to: Norton Police Department c/o Amanda Dreher 301 E. Washington St. Norton, KS 67654

Beginning February 26th through March 9th, the Norton Police Department will join other Law Enforcement agencies in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma to stop what has been an epidemic for the past several years. In 2015, 13 teens lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas; 40% of those teens were NOT restrained. In an effort to change this trend, law enforcement across the area will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools. For more than thirty years, officers have educated and warned passengers and drivers regarding the importance of using restraints while in their vehicle. There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to any individual who refuses to obey the traffic laws, whether it is for speeding, texting of failing to buckle up. Chief Cullumber says, "Even one teen death is unacceptable. Please slow down, put the phone away or turn it off, and ALWAYS buckle up."
