  • Lawrence PD

    So I've noticed lately, and like the fact, that Lawrence PD is writing tickets.....outside of Lawrence. On Monday as I was driving north on SR 135(Meridian St) just south of Edgewood Ave, a LPD officers had a blue camaro pulled over in the southbound lanes. TODAY as I was heading home from Lawrence just north of the Southport Rd exit on 465 I saw another LPD officer who had pulled over a Chevy Trailblazer. Anyone know if these are fluke incidents, or is the city/state pulling some sly moves?

    Just wanted to say I've seen alot of it as of late too along with DNR and others who are tying up the radio instead of using the laptop, which wouldn't be an issue if it were during our slower hours. I for one would apprieciate the help if they were taking runs with or for us but it is all just proactive stuff and It's becoming really difficult to get out over the radio when we have to for our dispatched runs because they are marking out and running three or four people over the air when they could use their computer.

      Are these some Federal projects, like the "Project 55"?

          I do believe that this is some kind of project deal but have not heard for sure.

            Ranger 900 units or DNR park rangers and just turn your radio to NO1 and listen for a while during middle shift. But like I said, I have no problem with them or anyone else helping with L.E. but i have backed them several times and know that they do have laptops so it just may be how they do business, no biggee, but sometimes it's like should i just push the orange button to get out when they or anyone else for that matter is running four people over the air when they have backup with them and i don't on my in-progress runs with guns/weapons involved. Alot of our own guys do it too, which needs to stop but I have just noticed it alot more with them. Personally i like LPD and think they have really good officers that do great work. I enjoy working along side of them and I know what kind of help I'm getting if they are backing me up. My whole thing is "Stay off the radio if you can do it yourself when the district is busy" you can always detain or cuff while doing this if you need to. Just because the cuffs are going on doesn't mean you can't take them off.

              Well I stand corrected lol. I thought they were DNR, had no idea there was a seperate entity.

                Only time I've heard DNR on the radio is when they had someone running. Rangers tend to use airtime because they are away from their car a lot. They've been doing directed patrols in some of the bigger parks and won't be near their computer.

                As to Lawrence outside of Lawrence, yeah, probably working grants or something.
                I miss you, Dave.

                  I imagine the guys you are seeing are working task force, when you work task force you can stop cars anywhere in the county, you don't need to stay in your district.


                  Ok, so they may have not wrote any tickets, sorry I assumed they were writing. I didnt say it was a problem, I did in actually say that I like the fact that they are doing it. By sly moves, I meant just what you said, something like a Task Force deal, or if the city had requested extra cars in these areas. I dont know, I was just curious to see if anyone had seen or knew what was going on. Probably not suppose to public knowledge, but hey it was worth a shot!

                    Who better to answer this than a LPD Officer. Yes a lot of tickets written outside of the City of Lawrence is while working grants (i.e. seatbelts, safe driver, fatal crash reduction and dui). However there are quite a few LPD Officers that live outside of the city and more so on the south side(me being on of them). I can't speak for everyone else(even though i know a few do) but I write my fair share of tickets/and assist IMPD Officers (on ts's and runs if im close and their back up isnt.. hope you all dont mind!) while off duty and running errands. I look at it like this the city gives me the car and allows me to drive it off duty so if I see something going on I don't mind taking care of it.

                          There's also a few Lawrence officers that live down on the south side, so it's possible they could be going to and from Lawrence and witness something that they felt needed their attention.

                            District? County? Hell, LPD officers could go to South Bend and start pullin people over if they want to. Statewide police powers, remember?

                            I've been at training in the far southern part of the state, had somebody fly by me at about 90 in a 40 and pulled them over. So people no doubt saw my squad a hundred miles away from my county on a traffic stop.
