At approximately 745pm this Christmas Eve. Tecumseh Police Officers' were dispatched to a home for noise coming from the rooftop and living room. To our surprise we caught Santa Claus on our body worn cameras. He explained he was delivering presents to sleeping children. We let Santa go on his way as he seemed to be in a hurry. Kids you better get to bed soon, Santa is in Tecumseh!!!


We know if you’re naughty or nice. Merry Christmas and be safe during the Holiday season 🌲


Christmas tree set up in the Lobby of the Police Department. Thank you Becky Cody. This tree assists people in need.

Yesterday evening a few of the Tecumseh police officers got the opportunity to participate in shop with a cop. This is a program that helps kids in need have a better Christmas.

Just a reminder that the Holiday season is upon us. The Tecumseh Police Department is urging its citizens to drive safe this Holiday season. We are participating in the Drive Sober Get Pulled Over campaign. We participate in this as we are a grant recipient from the Highway Safety Office. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Still lots of questions on the new law that went into effect today! Here is the state statute. Hope that helps clarify some of the question.


HB 2312 (effective November 1, 2017) amends 47 O.S. 11-309 to clarify that on a roadway divided into 4 or more lanes a vehicle shall not be driven in the left lane except when overtaking or passing another vehicle. But, this does not apply if “traffic conditions, flow, or road configuration, such as the potential of merging traffic, require the use of the left lane to maintain safe traffic conditions.”

Happy Halloween!!!! Be safe tonight, and parents be sure and check your kids candy.

New State law goes into effect this Wednesday, November 1st. The left lane on any multi-lane highway will be for passing, all other travel must be in the right lane with a few exceptions: (passing, making a left turn, making way for other merging vehicles, and when a safety hazard exists making travel in the right lane unsafe.)
