On Sunday August 13, 2017 at approximately 10:47pm a masked male entered the Little General store on Main Street in Dyer, TN demanding money from the register and safe. He managed to leave the store on foot taking more than $500 dollars in cash. The two individuals involved have since been arrested and taken to Gibson County Correctional Complex. Dyer Police Department would like to thank everyone for their assistance in this incident.

PUBLIC AWARENESS ANNOUNCEMENT: We would like encourage all citizens to be extra cautious during this holiday season. There are numerous scams circulating and these individuals tend to prey on victims more during the holidays with increased online shopping. Recently we were notified by two local businesses that they received service calls to the same location and once they arrived and found the other on site the home owner advised that they hadn't called either business and there was no problems at their residence. The business owners talked about their calls and found that the number both were called from originated out of Jamaica. Not sure what the intent was but once again we encourage everyone to be extra careful with the information you share over the phone. If you have any doubts about any correspondences notify your local law enforcement agency immediately.

Anyone that may have lost a cell phone this morning in the area of Anderson's Grain Co. the phone was recovered and turned into Dyer Police Department. You will need to contact Dyer PD to identify and pick it up.

This was from a friend that served in the Air Force with Chief. Chief Lindsey I want to personally Thank You and your staff for the job that you do. Americans today do not realize what your officers think as they suit up every morning, or as they make that traffic stop, or whatever call the respond to, it's not oh I'm gunna get them now, it's are they gunna get me now. Please know that not only Dyer TN is praying for your staffs safety but the nation is. To the 99.9% of Americans that support your police department reach out and let them know it. God Bless Each and Everyone of You. David Sneed

This post is for all parents, grandparents or anyone who has the duty of picking up or dropping off kids at Dyer Pre-school, Elementary, and Jr. High School buildings. We need your help during school zone hours. School Crossing Guards and law enforcement are put in place for two primary reasons. Our number one priority is to provide a safe environment to ensure the safe passage for our children while in the school zone area and the second being traffic control. The safety of our children should be everyone’s priority. We understand and empathize with you that the current positioning of the buildings, lack of adequate parking, and one-way traffic during school zone times is an extreme inconvenience for most of you and make it difficult to navigate through at times. The current system was originally set up for parents to travel west on college street drop-off and pick-up your children curbside only and use the crosswalk with a crossing guard on post. The old system had the crossing guard watching 4 lanes of traffic plus children crossing in front of the school. Over time we have tried to allow you to use other locations to drop-off and pick-up your children but we have witnessed several unsafe practices and situations that need to be addressed before an accident occurs. Some of these you may or may not be aware of. Below are some examples with possible solutions. Parking in bus only spaces: This is more of a problem in the mornings when the bus arrives to drop off kids going to the High School. There have been times when the bus arrives people are parked watching there children walk inside or kids are climbing in the back seat to retrieve their backpacks or other items and the bus and other traffic is backed up waiting. Kids should have everything they need to exit the vehicle prior to you stopping. Stopping in the middle of the street: This is a traffic hazard because it obstructs the flow of traffic and could possibly cause a rear end crash. There have been times when traffic in the intersection has come to a stand still while kids are getting sports gear, band instruments, and other items out of back seats or trunks. Now we have a child in the middle of traffic creating an unsafe situation. Children exiting vehicles in traffic: Children should only be exiting vehicles towards the curb. They should walk to the crosswalk and wait until instructed to cross. This prevents children being in the flow of traffic. Once again child safety is our priority and the purpose of this post is not to place blame but a plea for help from the parents or guardians. Let’s be courteous of others who are trying to drop-off or pick-up children, be aware of what’s going on in the school zone, and watch out for the next person who may not be paying attention. Thanks

Acting on a tip from a concerned citizen Officers with Dyer Police Department Deputies and a K-9 with the Gibson County Sheriffs Department did conduct a Narcotics Investigation at 128 High Street Dyer, TN which resulted in the seizure of Methamphetamine, materials used in the manufacture of Methamphetamine, and the arrest of Jason D. Moore.

Dyer PD needs your help to identify or find the individual or individuals responsible for these acts of vandalism at the city park. Any information please contact Dyer PD at 731-692-2843 or Central dispatch at 731-692-3714.
