It was a joy visiting and reading to these little ones today at the Laurel County Public Library! #weloveourcommunity

Thank you WYGE Christian Radio for having our PIO Magen Zawko on the air today to share info about two ways the public can impact their families and the community to decrease drug addiction! - The Department's lobby is open 24/7 and is under surveillance for your convenience to drop off any unwanted/unused prescription medications into our MedReturn units. Safe storage and disposal of medications diminish opportunities for misuse and easy access. - We have free non-invasive and informative drug kits for parents of teens, so that parents may begin the conversation early about the dangers of drug use. The "Give Me A Reason" kits are available Mon-Fri 9am-4pm. According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, kids who have conversations with their parents about the dangers of drug use early on are 50% less likely to use drugs than those who don't have those conversations.

Drop in to see us after voting on Election Day Nov. 6th at the London Community Center until 12pm, during the Health Fair! Learn more about our programs/activities and we'll have free "Give Me A Reason" Drug Kits with us for teens!

The London Police Department’s application and hiring procedures are held to a very high standard and every step is taken within the hiring process to provide all applicants an equal opportunity for employment. On 10.16.18, an incorrect statement was made on WYMT by the Clay County Sheriff’s Dept. about our current hiring process and applicants. Chief Derek House spoke with Clay Co. Sheriff Angela Johnson who stated that she had misspoken and will make a correction in regards to two of her Deputies leaving her Dept. for the London Police Dept. Two Clay Co. Deputies have applied for positions with the London Police Dept. We would like to ensure all currently undergoing our certified officer hiring process that no decision is made until the entire process has been completed. Thank you to all who that have applied to our Department, we look to hire individuals who are wholly dedicated to protecting and serving our citizens. The testing process will begin soon for non-certified applicants that have been received.
