Congrats to Citizen Police Academy Class #32! The class graduated last week and enjoyed a graduation dinner at EPD! If you missed this one, our next class begins in August!

Still needing a few more participants! Sign up at etownpd.org!

Officer Robinson and the first home school class celebrated their D.A.R.E. graduation last night! It was a great inaugural class that we look forward to continuing in the future! Great job Officer Robinson and the entire class!

Please avoid the intersection of Ring Rd and North Dixie. We are currently working a collision at this location and will likely have portions of the roadway shut down for an extended period of time.

EPD is hosting a child safety seat installation class this week, taught by Safe Kids instructors from KSP and Norton’s Children’s Hospital. EPD, Etown Fire, and several surrounding agencies are participating to become certified installation techs! Many thanks to Swope Nissan and Big M Chevrolet for letting us use their vehicles to train!

This week is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, which honors the men and women who serve as dispatchers for various emergency services. We have an amazing team of dispatchers at EPD. They are the first point of contact for most of our calls, they provide patrol units with vital and potentially life saving intel, and they ensure an effective and quick response to provide police services for those in need. We couldn't do our job without them!

A BIG thank you to our community for their help with our armed robbery yesterday!

Come to the police department on Friday for a car seat inspection or installation. Make sure that you're keeping your kids as safe as possible during travel!

It's that time again! Come out and see us for Coffee with a Cop! Get a free cup of coffee, get to know your local police, talk about any issues or concerns you may have, find out more about your community, and let us know how we can serve you better!

Crime Prevention Tips! After a weekend rash of property crime, including 9 vehicle break-ins and 3 stolen vehicles, it’s time to remind everyone how to take some common sense steps to prevent property crime! First, please remember to remove all valuables AND any firearms from your vehicle. A thief can’t steal what isn’t there. Secondly, keep your vehicles locked: most of these thieves are exclusively targeting unlocked vehicle. More than 90% of the 155 theft from vehicle cases we had last year were from unlocked vehicles. Finally…definitely, definitely, DEFINITELY, don’t leave your keys in an unlocked vehicle. Thieves may not be looking to steal a car, but they’ll sure take advantage of an unexpected opportunity! I think that covers it. Have a great spring break everyone!

Please see the shared post for information on the severe weather threat for tomorrow, Tuesday 04/03/18.

This is a great idea to consider!

Update: James K. Decoursey, the suspect in the murder of Hopkinsville PD Officer Phillip Meacham, was killed by police in Clarksville, Tennessee during an encounter. Please continue to keep the officer's family and department in your thoughts and prayers.

Another brother in blue has tragically died today. Pray for the family and Hopkinsville PD, and keep an eye out for the suspect.

Coming Soon!

Please join us in welcoming Officer Nick Pruitt to the EPD family! He was sworn in today by Mayor Berger. Officer Pruitt is a 7 year veteran police officer who transferred from another agency, so he will begin serving our community very soon! He is also married with two children. We are confident that he will be a great addition to our agency and community!
