Tiptonville Police Department News

Congratulations Lake County Falcons on your win tonight!

Lake County High School will be conducting an armed intruder drill during the month of November. This drill is required by state law. The drill will be unannounced and will be staged as an actual emergency situation. This will include a full response from local law enforcement and other emergency agencies. There will be no guns involved whatsoever. Students and teachers are being prepared for this drill and how they should respond in such an emergency. During this drill, do not attempt to come to the high school or contact the office as all attention will be focused on conducting this drill successfully. This is being done in an effort to provide the safest environment at the school that we possibly can. Once again this will be in the month of November and be unannounced.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish the Lake County Falcons good luck tonight in their season opener against Halls. Everyone enjoy the pre-game tailgating activities and a fun and safe time tonight. Go Big Green!!!

Congratulations Lake County High School's Class of 2017. You’ve worked hard to get here. Remember to follow your dreams and stay true to yourself as one chapter ends and the next begins. We are very proud of each of you.

Today begins National Police Week. A week in which we honor those officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice while protecting and serving the citizens of their communities. It is also a week to honor the families of those who are left behind. Many also pay respect to those we love in law enforcement during police week. On average, 360 children of law enforcement officer families lose their LEO parent each year. Since today is Mother's Day, please reminder that not all officer kids lose their daddy.

Happy Mothers Day......... The Tiptonville Police Department would like to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day! We hope that you enjoy your day and we hope it is filled with as much joy as you bring to each of our lives!

Please drive with caution as many streets and intersections are experiencing Flash Flooding

Lake County is under a flash flood warning till 1:15 PM.

There are several trees and power lines down all over the city. Extensive damage has been reported to homes, businesses, and vehicles but there are no known injuries. Police, fire department, sheriff's department, street crews, and Gibson Electric are all doing the best they can clear the roads and restore power. Please use extreme caution if you must get out.

The officers of the Tiptonville Police Department would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Please stay safe and drive with caution during your holiday travels.

The Tiptonville Christmas Parade is still on schedule for tonight. Lineup for parade entries will begin at 5:30 PM behind Lake County High School on Algee St. The parade will begin at 7 PM. Everyone come out and have a good time, but be sure and dress warm. We look forward to seeing you there.

Thank you LKES SWAG for the treats and letters! We really appreciate them!

This week is National Public Safety Telecommunicator’s Week. we want to take this opportunity to thank all our Dispatchers at the Lake County Sheriff’s Department who play such a vital role in the safety of our officers and serve the public daily. These Dispatchers are our life line when we are in the field and they receive little or no recognition for all they do not only for the officers, but also the public. Congratulations on this week where the work you do is recognized.

Thank you Margaret Newton! We love you guys too!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Margaret Newton Elementary teachers and staff for inviting us to participate in Dr. Seuss week. We enjoyed reading to the students, and visiting with both the students and faculty. We are already looking forward to next year.

Over the last several weeks, the police department has received reports of home burglaries in which televisions, gaming consoles, and other electronics have been taken. These burglaries are occurring at all times of the day and night and typically while the home owner is working or out of town. The televisions have ranged in size from 32” to 55” and all makes and models. These items were stolen from hard working people. Officers currently have leads and are following up on each one that comes in. If anyone has any information regarding these thefts, please contact the police department ASAP at 731-253-6693. Please remember that purchasing and concealing items that are stolen is also a crime. If you have purchased any items from individuals that you feel may be stolen, contact the police department to verify their legitimacy. Finally, please report any suspicious activity in your neighborhood. This includes as much specific information as possible, such as vehicle type, tag number, physical descriptions of people and more. The police cannot be everywhere at once, so we rely on citizens to be our additional eyes and ears. Watch out for your neighbor and ask them to do the same for you. Working together, we can deter this type of crime.

Thank you to all our brothers and sisters out there doing what they do best, protecting and serving.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the bonfire tonight! It was a tremendous success with hundreds in attendance! Thank you for showing all the support for our youth!

The City of Tiptonville will be hosting a community wide pep-rally and bonfire for the Lake County High School Falcons Homecoming on Thursday September 17, 2015 from 7:00PM until 8:15PM. The event will be held at the Tiptonville Baseball Park, south of the basketball goals. The event is being organized by Tiptonville Mayor Reid Yates and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. The Tiptonville Police Department and Tiptonville Fire Department will be there to assist with the event and ensure the safety of those in attendance. Come out and show your support for the Falcons! We hope to see you all there!

We have had reports of vehicles being gone through overnight with items such as cameras, money, etc. being taken from them. In each case, the vehicle was unlocked making it an easy target. The majority of vehicle break-ins occur outside private homes, in driveways, or on the street in front of the victim’s home. Thefts from vehicles would be drastically reduced if people would lock their car doors and stop leaving valuables inside their vehicles. Leaving items on display, whether in or on a dashboard or in a mounted cradle, or sitting on the passenger seat, is an open invitation to opportunist criminals. Please remember to Lock Your Doors, Take Your Keys, and Never Leave Valuables in Sight. These simple tips can help in you not becoming a victim.
