Good afternoon parents of teen drivers! We've recently had a lot of inquiries about the restrictions of teen driver's with certain permits/restrictions. We'd like to direct you the Kansas Department of Health and Environment's website outlining the do's and don'ts of teen driving: http://www.kansasgdl.org Simply click on the type of license your teen driver has, and the website will redirect you the page outlining the restrictions and rules.

Though, as parents, we wished our children would behave better in public.... we'd like to remind everyone that we want children to feel comfortable coming to the police. So please take this PSA into consideration.

Linny Richelle is in a competition to win #legotravelbuddy and these were taken today because no one has had a police officer yet. Linny wanted to say thanks to Chief of Police Troy Rudman for the opportunity to try and win the competition.

This little guy was located east on K18 just outside of Plainville and was rescued by a passerby. He is fine, just a little shy and nauseous. If you're the owner of this pup, you'll be able to pick him up at The Animal Hospital at 710 S Washington Street in Plainville. They may be reached at (785) 434-7222 during normal business hours. Remember to tag your animals with the Plainville Aco, and that you may do so Monday-Friday.

Please enjoy this video we put together for our viewers/followers. To improve in firearms proficiency, sometimes we need to train the hardest for the tasks we are least likely to perform. In addition to being able to qualify with on- and off-duty firearms, the Plainville Police Department, and law enforcement officers everywhere, must train to put us in a better position to protect ourselves and others.

Memorial Day is about honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. This weekend, let us not forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Take a moment of silence to honor those service men and women who fought to make this day possible.

**REMINDER** Beginning tomorrow and continuing through Sunday, June 4, residents can expect increased police presence on city streets as the Plainville Police Department joins 160 other law enforcement agencies in aggressively enforcing Kansas occupant restraint and other traffic laws as part of the 2017 Kansas Click It or Ticket campaign. Enforcement will occur around the clock. Officers will be especially vigilant at night as seat belt use diminishes after nightfall, meaning the likelihood of unrestrained crash injuries and deaths soars during those hours.

In reference to the KAKE-TV article published over the Mother's Day Blitz video, we've also received the message that was sent to KAKE-TV from the writer herself! Take a look! And thank you Brenda Otto for sharing these kind words!

KAKE-TV shared this amazing message from a recipient on our first ever "Mother's Day Blitz". This was a project that was 'spur of the moment' and appears to have made an amazing impact on those who experienced it. We'd like to say thank you to everyone for your continued support!

On August 27, 2016 Hays Post reported the following: "Two people were injured in an accident just after 7 a.m. on Saturday in Ellis County. The Kansas Highway Patrol reported a 2012 Chevy Traverse driven by Reginald D. Evans, 24, Colorado Springs, CO, was eastbound on Interstate 70 eleven miles west of Hays when the driver fell asleep. The vehicle drifted left into median and hit and a maintenance crossover that caused the vehicle to go airborne. The vehicle then struck the guardrail and came to rest on the guardrail and against the bridge pillar. Evans and a passenger, Shawnna Evans, 25, Colorado Springs, CO, were transported to Hays Medical Center. Three children in the vehicle were transported to the hospital but not injured. All five were properly restrained at the time of the accident, according to the KHP." Beginning on Monday, May 22, and continuing through Sunday, June 4, residents can expect increased police presence on city streets as the Plainville Police Department joins 160 other law enforcement agencies in aggressively enforcing Kansas occupant restraint and other traffic laws as part of the 2017 Kansas Click It or Ticket campaign. This activity is supported by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT). Enforcement will occur around the clock. Officers will be especially vigilant at night because seat belt use diminishes after nightfall, meaning the likelihood of unrestrained crash injuries and deaths soars during those hours. Drivers can expect strict enforcement of both the Kansas Safety Belt Use Act and the Kansas Child Passenger Safety Act. These statutes require that all vehicle occupants must be appropriately restrained. Law enforcement officers can stop vehicles and issue tickets when they observe front seat occupants, teens in any seat position, or children under the age of 14, riding without being properly restrained. Occupants, ages 14 and over, are cited individually. In the event that a passenger under the age of 14 is observed to be unrestrained the driver will be cited. The aim of Click It or Ticket is simple: to drastically reduce the number of preventable deaths and injuries that occur when unbelted drivers and passengers are involved in traffic crashes. According to KDOT, 93% of crash occupants who suffer no injuries of any kind are belted in. So, in general, unrestrained occupants who are involved in a crash have, at most, only about a 7% chance of emerging unscathed, not suffering some degree of injury. While seat belts may not always protect from serious or fatal injury, certainly no other piece of equipment within the vehicle provides more protection.

On May 14, 2017 in honor of Mother’s Day the Plainville Police Department formulated a new traffic campaign to focus on traffic complaints & other ordinance issues designed to raise awareness to proper driving habits and other motherly-like complaints. This was called the MOTHER’S DAY BLITZ. Over 20 motorists were stopped today and issued Mother's Day cards.

Happy Mother's Day from the Plainville Police Department! "There is no perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challengers, different skills and abilities and certainly different children. What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply." – Elder M. Russel Ballard

From all of us at the Plainville PD, congratulations to the PHS Class of 2017!
