We are seeing some posts and comments regarding law enforcement boarding a school bus during its afternoon route on Tuesday November 6, 2018. To clear up any rumors, we want to inform everyone as to why we were there: During the afternoon route home, a Fremont Community Schools bus (bus 6) was on their normal route when an issue with an out of control juvenile occurred. The bus driver pulled their bus to the side of the road on Tillotson Street south of State Road 120 and advised they were going to wait until the juvenile calmed themself so the bus could continue safely. Fremont Police Officers have the ability to listen to the school bus channel to ensure safety during the school day and on their routes to and from the schools. Hearing this on the radio, officers responded to help rectify the situation and allow the bus to continue along its route sooner than having it run any later than normal. Officers boarded the bus, spoke with juveniles, and ensured the safety and security on the bus. No criminal activity occurred on the bus nor was any juvenile in trouble with law enforcement. Any discipline that may have occurred because of this incident was handled by the school corporation.

Good Sunday morning! We hope everyone has taken some time to switch their clocks back an hour! In the wake of the multiple tragedies the last couple of weeks, this picture has been circling the internet and a lot of of people have been saying it is incorrect. Here is the answer according to INDIANA law: All pictures are correct, including the middle one! All lanes stop when a school bus stops and red lights are activated, UNLESS there is an actual median or barrier dividing the roadway! (The best example to this is, SR 127 (N Wayne Street) in Angola all lanes must stop, however CR 200 W (by the old Fun Spot Amusement Park) only the lane the bus is in must stop) Please continue to share this picture so everyone is aware of Indiana laws. Again, the Fremont Police Department is committed to the safety and security of our children. Any violation of passing a school bus while the red lights are activated will result in traffic citations issued.

Uh oh, time change is THIS SUNDAY November 4, 2018. Remember we Fall Back this time so at 2:00 A.M. it becomes 1:00 A.M. again! Here is a helpful little guide to make sure all your clocks get set correctly!

Not every day you catch Mr. Incredible responding to a car accident along the streets in Fremont! Last evening, returning back from trick-or-treating, our officers responded to assist with a car accident along State Road 827 just south of Fremont. No matter the uniform, we’re always at the ready to assist whoever needs help!

** This post is old, officers are not currently handing out candy Come get our candy from RIGHT NOW until 6:30 P.M. at Pokagon State Park!!! PS... Fremont Police have the best candy in the County!

It’s coming... TRICK-OR-TREAT hours for the Town of Fremont will be Wednesday October 31, 2018 from 5-7 P.M. Please be extra careful if you’re driving thru our Community as some extra special goblins will be out in full force! P.S. we were asked if an older sibling could participate with younger siblings. Of course! However social protocol states they must share their candy with the younger children OR any police officer they see on patrol! 🤷🏼‍♂️😂

This is great, but seeing it in person is better!! Come out to the Max Mitchell Sports Complex and support our Eagles THIS FRIDAY!!!!

Man... we’re still riding that high from last nights game!!! What an awesome sight it was last night to watch our Eagles pull off that WIN in the first round of sectional football!!!

This is why Fremont is a great “Place to Come Home To!” Last evening one of our football players suffered a neck injury during a football game. As he was on the field awaiting first responders to take him to a hospital, our cheerleaders were captured here, praying, not for their player or friend... for their family! We may not win every game, or a single game... but we’re family, and we are Fremont!!

With all the hustle and bustle this morning, we still managed to get our #1stdayhero picture in. Show us your back to school pictures in the comments! The day is rolling on nicely today here in #EagleNation

Ah this is it! The first day!!! Let’s have an amazing year Eagles!!!!!

** Please read and share, let’s flood FB on Wednesday! July 27, 2017 was a special morning for the Allan family. Lt. Aaron Allan of the Southport Indiana Police Department and his wife Stacy, walked their 5-year-old son Aaron Jr. to the bus stop, for his first day of Kindergarten. Like any special event in their family, Stacy and Aaron did their best to be present. Aaron and Stacy always tried to make time in their hectic schedules for their little family. Aaron Jr’s first day of school was no exception. Snapping pictures of his big day, his little heart was full of anxiety and courage. He held on to his daddy’s hand, nervous of the uncertainty, yet excited. Aaron and Stacy showered him with words of encouragement, letting him know everything would go great, school is fun! He would meet new friends, have amazing teachers and learn so many cool things, it was also normal to feel nervous. Unbeknownst to them, their words would run so deep. Just like his daddy that day Aaron Jr walked into the unknown with an open mind and full of bravery. Only an hour until the bus was to return Aaron Jr. home, Lt. Allan responded to an overturned single car accident. When Lt. Allan approached the car to help those inside, he was cowardly gunned down by one of the occupants. Multiple shots were fired at Lt. Allan, striking him 11 times. He was rushed to Eskanazi Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. That day a family, and the Community lost their Hero. The pictures Stacy took that morning is a true testament of how Lt. Allan lived. He took time for his family, their hero behind the badge, a daddy who was always working, yet managed to be present in his son’s life. No matter your occupation or what uniform you suit up in to face your day, busy mommies and daddies are heroes in the eyes of their children. We lead them by example. This Wednesday (August 15, 2018) is the first day of school for the 2018-2019 school year here in Fremont. In memory of Lt. Aaron Allan and his family’s ultimate sacrifice, we ask that you take a moment to be present for your child. No matter the grade your child is in, will you join us in sending them off for their first day of school. Whether it’s walking them to the bus stop, the school house front door or to the car. Snap a picture of your special moment, much like Lt. Allan’s on July 27, 2017, upload it to Facebook with words of encouragement and use the hashtag #1stdayhero Let’s show Aaron Jr. and all of our kiddos that they do not walk alone.

The first day of school for our Eagle students is Wednesday, August 15th! It is quickly approaching so we began to wonder... have you noticed the new school zone??? Along State Road 120 you will notice that the school zone has a slightly different look to it than if did last year. On the west side of Town, the school zone now begins just west of the Library and does not end until east of the Elementary School. When the lights are activated, the speed limit is 25 M.P.H. This change was made by the Indiana Department of Transportation so that all cross walks are covered in the school zone, including by the Library! Also please notice, as pictured above, there are now signs indicating where the school zone speed limit ends. If you have not reached this sign, and the lower speed limit lights are activated, you still must drive at 25 M.P.H. This is for the safety of all students, parents, and guests in the area. Please share this post with everyone you know. As always, we are committed to the safety and security of all of our Eagle Students!
