Tomorrow is the day! The Bolivar R-1 school district goes back in session. We would like to remind people that traffic will be a little different and heavier. Please watch out for school busses and kids walking. Leave earlier to give yourself more time for slower traffic and bus stops along your routes. Also, remember school zones and the reduced speed limits. Officers will be watching these areas.

Today, a hero was laid to rest. Officers from all around joined together to celebrate, remember and honor Gary Michael. It is our sincere wish not to post anything like this again for years to come.

Lately, it seems like law enforcement is always portrayed in a negative light and have lost the support and respect if the communities they serve. Over this past week, we of the Bolivar Police Department, have reaffirmed our opinion that we have the best citizens possible. From one posting intending to show our support to the Clinton Police Department and our respect and condolences to the Michael family, it has reached over 85,000 people and received almost 600 "likes". We cannot express our gratitude enough.

Officers from the Bolivar Police Department joined with representatives of law enforcement agencies across the state to bring Ofc. Gary Michael home to Clinton.

As many if you have probably already heard, the suspect in the murder of Ofc. Michael has been captured in the Urich, MO area. We sincerely hope that this helps bring some comfort to the Michael family, the citizens of Clinton, and the Clinton Police Department. Photo credit goes to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Last night, the Clinton Police Department had an officer killed by gunfire while conducting a traffic stop. The thoughts and prayers of the Bolivar Police Department go out to the citizens of Clinton and the Clinton Police Department in this time of sorrow.

We are proud that we were able to do a small part to help Brock and Brenna raise funds for Safe and Sober. Two amazing kids doing great things for a worthy cause. We're sure this won't be the last time we hear from these two. For more information about this brother and sister, read the August 2nd edition of the Bolivar Herald Free Press.

We have received a report from a citizen who wished to tell us of potential scam in our area. Someone, using what appears to be Hobbytime Motorsports phone number, wanted to sell the citizen insurance. We have verified that Hobbytime Motorsports does not sell insurance and has not made any calls. If you should get one of these calls, do not give any personal or bank information.

Hot weather is here! Hopefully, everyone is finding ways to beat the heat, but keep in mind that some can't. Remember to check on your friends, neighbors and pets. Make sure to drink LOTS of water, and limit soda and alcohol.

Today we recognized three officers for their efforts in performing CPR at Wal Mart on June 21st. Thank you to Ofcs. Mike Scott and Dawnielle Robinson as well as Lt. Zach Palmer.

Happy 4th of July! Come out and join the fun!
