The Jacksboro Police Department is urging residents of Jacksboro to take precautions against theft. In recent days several riding lawn mowers have been taken from properties in the city. JPD has been diligently patrolling the streets but is asking for help from residents by utilizing the “See something, say something” philosophy. According to Lt. Connie McGee “The police department is out cruising the streets as much as we can be, but obviously we can not be everywhere. If someone sees something that they think is suspicious, say something. We can check it out and see if there was something of concern going on.”
The JPD has been taking many steps toward becoming a positive inter-woven part of the community in the past year, what the national news sources have deemed as non existent in today’s times. Police and citizens, nationally, have been seen as foe, a theme that the JPD is hoping to change. Initiating the “Coffee with a Cop” program back in the fall, the JPD is actively pursuing a relationship with the community, one that will bring the community and PD together. More coffee dates are planned for the future, and the PD is always open to friendly “home town” conversations!
If you see something that you would like to report, call the police department at 940-567-2666. If it is an emergency call 911.
