Hazard Police Department News

The Hazard Police Department is currently participating in an emergency training exercise at the Hazard ARH. The drill involves a simulated helicopter crash. This is only a training exercise and there is currently no emergency situation at the hospital.

To quell the spread of false information that has been going around the last hour or so, Chief Minor Allen has released the following statement. Hazard High School was not placed on lockdown at any time today. One of our officers responded to HHS earlier regarding a possible veiled threat that was sent out on social media. After viewing the message, meeting with staff, and speaking with the student who posted the message, it was determined by the school staff and our officer that no threat was made and no threat exists. In an effort to ease any anxiety that might exist over this incident, we will conduct extra patrols at HHS next week. Apparently, upon seeing one of our officers at the school, someone decided to spread misinformation regarding this incident resulting in several calls to us asking about the school being on lockdown. Again, the school was never on lockdown and a threat did not exist.

A message from our command staff regarding an increase in hypodermic needles being found.

UPDATE 2:55pm - Village Lane has been reopened. ************************************************ Please avoid Village Lane as a rock slide has blocked traffic. City road crews are on the way to the scene.

UPDATE: Mrs. Noble has been located and is now safe. Thank you for sharing. ================================== The Hazard Police Department has received a report of a missing person by the name of Mary W. Noble from Manchester. Noble was born in 1959 and was last seen at the Hazard ARH around 4PM yesterday wearing a red t-shirt and Levi jeans. She is described as having brown hair, green eyes, 5'6" tall, and weighing approximately 153lbs. She was last seen driving a 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara, beige, plate number 389-ARA. Upon last contact with her family, she advised her husband that she was going to her house in Manchester and would be back in Hazard later on the same day. If you know the whereabouts of Mrs. Noble, you are encouraged to contact the HPD immediately at 436-2222.

We invite you to come out tomorrow and honor a local fallen soldier.

We received a visit from Brittany and Bryson today who were delivering cookies on behalf of Cookies for a Cop and Fire Friends. They also dropped some off to our friends at the Hazard Fire Department. We appreciate the gesture and the sponsors of this program. #cookiesforacop #sweetkindness

Due to the funeral service for Rev. Dr. John Pray at the First Baptist Church of Town Mountain at 11am today, please use caution when traveling through the area. There is already a large number of people gathered and parking is limited. We have personnel on location assisting with traffic control. Please use caution and drive slowly through this area.

Here are the arrangements for Rev. Dr. John Pray, a former Captain with the Hazard Police Department. http://m.maggardfuneralhomes.com/obituaries/events?obituaryId=2484881

This morning, we regretfully learned of the passing of Reverend John Pray. Rev. Pray led a life of service, not only to the public, but to the Lord. He was a veteran of the Korean War, a Philadelphia police officer, an Auxiliary Captain with the Hazard Police Department, and a detective for the Perry County Commonwealth Attorney's Office, but he was most proud of his service in the ministry and his roll as the pastor of Town Mountain Baptist Church. He served as a mentor to many young officers as they began their careers with HPD and always had sound advice for anyone who asked. We send our thoughts and prayers to his family and many friends. We will post the funeral arrangements once we have them.

We would like to thank Patrolmen Terry Brewer and Jake Miller for their service and dedication to the Hazard Police Department. Both men recently left HPD to pursue other opportunities. We wish them the best in all of their future endeavors.

Tomorrow is the first school day of the year for Hazard Independent Schools. We have scheduled all HPD Safety Officers to be on duty tomorrow morning to help our police officers monitor the areas around all schools. Here are a few tips, not just for parents and students, but for any drivers who may be traveling in or near school zones: - Allow extra time to reach your destination - Stay alert and obey all school safety zone regulations, especially speed limits - Drivers traveling BOTH directions must stop for a school bus that has its stop sign extended and red lights flashing - Parents, please talk with your children about bus safety. Remind them to walk, never run, around bus zones and to always walk at least 10 steps ahead of the bus before crossing in front of it. Education makes a difference!
