Paris City Police Department News

This is why people get into our profession. Thanks Officer Cody Logsdon for helping this man out of a dangerous situation.

At 1:18 p.m. CDT on Wednesday, Oct. 3, FEMA will send out the first message testing the new nationwide presidential-level Wireless Emergency Alert. It will go to every smart phone in the United States that is turned on and within range of a cell tower. The Presidential Alert to phones will say: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” The message to smart phones will be followed by an Emergency Alert System message broadcast on every TV and radio at 1:20 p.m. CDT. That will feature a voice that says: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Emergency Alert System. This system was developed by broadcast and cable operators in voluntary cooperation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, and local authorities to keep you informed in the event of an emergency. If this had been an actual emergency, an official message would have followed the tone alert you heard at the start of this message. A similar Wireless Emergency Alert test message has been sent to all cell phones nationwide. Some cell phones will receive the message; others will not. No action is required.”

Don't forget tomorrow night is Texas Night Out. It is held at the Love Civic Center Pavillion from 5pm to 8pm.

The critical missing juvenile, Avery Moreland has been found and is safe.

FLASH FLOOD WATCH IS CANCELLED... While additional light rainfall will be possible today, the threat for heavy rain has ended. Therefore, the Flash Flood Watch for portions of north central Texas and northeast Texas has been cancelled.

he National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a * Flood Advisory for Minor Flooding in Poor Drainage Areas for Lamar County in north central Texas... * Until 700 AM CDT. * At 454 AM CDT, Doppler radar indicated moderate rain that will cause minor flooding. Areas that are low lying or usually experience poor drainage are most likely to experience flooding in the advisory area. * Some locations that will experience flooding include... Paris, Blossom, Deport, Roxton, Toco and Sun Valley. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.

Cooke County in north central Texas... Grayson County in north central Texas... Fannin County in north central Texas... * Until 1030 PM CDT. * At 731 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain along the Red River Counties. The soils are saturated in this area and excessive runoff will further exacerbate the ongoing flooding issues. This may result in some gradual water rises. Ponding of water is also likely near some highway underpasses and in urban areas where drainage is poor.

September 21st 1985, Officer David Roberts was killed in the line of duty while making a traffic stop on armed robbery suspects on N. Main. We will not forget. We will honor your life. We will honor your service.

ALERT...ALERT...There has been an accident in the southbound lanes of 271 North at Beaver Creek and traffic is at a standstill. These lanes will possibly be closed for some time. TXDOT is responding to help with the congestion but it will be a little while before they can reroute the southbound lanes to the northbound lanes. Please be patient and be aware that emergency personnel are working in the roadway to help investigate this accident. At this time, we believe that three vehicles were involved and at least two people are listed as critical patients.

FLASH FLOOD WATCH * From Friday morning through Saturday afternoon * Showers and thunderstorms are expected to become more numerous through the day Friday and continuing into Saturday. The heaviest rainfall may occur late Friday into Friday night. * Rainfall totals of 2 to 5 inches will be possible especially north of I-20 toward the Red River through Saturday. Isolated heavier amounts in excess of 5 inches can be expected. * Soils will saturate quickly with periods of heavy rainfall resulting in rapid runoff and the potential for flash flooding. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for heavy rain which may lead to flash flooding. You should monitor the latest forecasts from the National Weather Service and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued for your area.

Weather Aware..... Showers and thunderstorms will be on the increase Friday and will continue over the weekend. The primary concern will be heavy rain and the possibility of flooding. At this time it looks like areas along and north of I-20 will have the highest potential to receive heavy rain and possible flooding. Also, a few strong to severe storms will be possible, mainly south of the I-20 corridor.

We normaly don't make a big deal out of an officer's 2 year anniversary with the department. But since our canine unit consisting of Officer Jeff Padier and Cupa hit the street on September 19, 2016, we thought we would share a little of what these two have been up to: 286 Drug Arrests by Cupa and Jeff. 72 of those were only because of Cupa's open air sniff and alert. 20 assists to other law enforcement agencies in our area. Several suspects taken into custody just by Cupa announcing his presence with his 'voice'. A few suspects were physically taken into custody by Cupa. Cupa has had a couple of minor injuries. Cupa was assaulted by one suspect. Lots of training time Lots of interactions with our citizens at various community functions. We congratulate Cupa on his two year service mark along with Jeff who has been there every 4 steps of the way. Usually holding a very soggy tennis ball.......
