A few reminders about Bluestem Lake by Chief

Officers pose with the newly purchased rifles and Elks Lodge Exalted Ruler, Mark Chamberlain. The rifles were obtained thru a raffle conducted by the Pawhuska Elks lodge. The raffle was able to raise enough funds to purchase three Patrol Rifles and the winner, Charmaine Kendrick donated the winning rifle back to the department for patrol use. Four other rifles had been previously donated by a generous private citizen in town. We are very thankful for the kindness shown to our agency by all those involved and this will allow all of our officers to be equipped with much needed equipment. -Chief Laird

Public service announcement: officers will be out in force at the lake this weekend so we are offering a few reminders. The lake lots are private and not for public use. Officers will be checking to ensure that trespassers are not present. If you are not the lot owner you must have written permission to be present or you must leave. Public swimming is at the third cove beach area and public camping is at third cove boat ramp and by the spillway. Bottles are prohibited as well at the lake. We want everyone to enjoy a safe and peaceful lake weekend!

Getting the no wake barrels located and moved back, Troy is the deck hand and Chief is the captain.

The Pawhuska Police Dept would like to congratulate all the seniors of the class of 2017. We wish you the best in your future endeavors!

Please be weather aware this evening and into tonight. Storms have began firing up in the far western portion of the state and will be traveling thru later. As always the downtown shelters will be open. As a reminder there is not an all clear sounding of the sirens given if the sirens are activated. We usually sound them three times on a cycle of 3 mins each time, when our area is placed in a tornado warning, sometimes more if needed. Just because they stop sounding does not mean the threat has passed. -Chief S.Laird

For future reference, the tornado sirens are sounded when our town is put in a tornado warning. It is to alert those outside to the weather situation who do not have access to television. If your hear them and the weather is ominous then it means take cover and be alert. Unfortunately during these times when we sound the sirens we are bombarded by callers asking if the sirens are sounding and if a tornado is present. This ties up our phone lines and disrupts emergency services.

Lynn ave is flooded out at 15th and severely from 10th to 6th.

There a tornado warning for our area that's why the sirens where blowing ! please leave the phones open so we can receive calls

Congratulations to officer trammel for completing the CLEET basic academy. It has been a long 16 weeks and we are glad to have you back!

This sign was recovered yesterday from some juveniles. If you are the owner please Contact us at the Pd.

We will be working on the tornado sirens today, if you hear them that's what is going on

Our prayers and condolences go out to the Tecumseh Police Department for the loss of their officer overnight.
