Both FSHS and LHS have security officers and two School Resource Officers assigned to the schools. What are their responsibilities now? Do they maintain perimeter security or sit in an office? Who is responsible for watching their current security cameras?
Mr. May needs to earn his pay..We DO NOT need another administrative position at USD 497!!! Figure it out with current staff or reassign a desk jockey. No experience with security, replace such desk jockey with someone who does. The schools have security in place, it just needs refining but I am sure the District will find a way to spend more money for a solution we already have in place.

Dorothy complains because a group of people yelled obscenities and squealed their tires but I sure didn’t see her complain when activists marched into our downtown businesses demanding they support their cause or be threatened with repercussions. Or further when they take over a City Commission and School Board meeting while throwing out F bombs right and left...hypocrite.

I said the same thing when the Black Lives Matter group went into our downtown businesses intimidating owners and employees to support their cause.

Umm...it was peaceful and it’s the police departments duty to protect everyones rights regardless if you agree with their beliefs or not.

Based on the scanner traffic, our first responders did an excellent job. The police arrived on scene first and rescued the apartment occupant after they had to kick in the door. Then they were able to evacuate the apartment building with the help of the fire department. The fire department did a good job of clearing the building of all the smoke as the fire suppression system did its job. Good job first responders!!

I was excited to see our men and women LPD officers on the show and they did not disappoint. I really don’t know what people was expecting but it was obvious they do not watch the show that often. This was not supposed to be a Lawrence marathon like everyone thought. It is a 30 minute show filled with three episodes and commercials. We can’t wait to watch the remaining segments!!

I am very proud of how our police officers handled this situation. It is not a situation that any of us want to be in but they handled it with such a high level of professionalism and their heroic actions should be commended. Job well done LPD!!

Looks like the hotel was in the middle of some construction...a TripAdvisor review from January 1st indicated the hallway ceiling tiles were removed and some sheetrock. From the photos, it looks like they were trying to track down a water leak.

I firmly believe when the policy is written, it should require the municipal court prosecutor or the district attorney to criminally charge any person who falsely accuses a police officer of misconduct when the video evidence or otherwise proves differently. Hold everyone accountable for their actions!!

Thank you for your service Mike...One of the most open minded, sincere commissioners I have seen in my thirty years of being a Lawrence resident.
