School Bus safety awareness public service announcement…

The Dickinson Police Department would like remind the motoring public of the traffic laws and safety concerns associated with school buses operating in the city.

School buses are undoubtedly the safest mode of motorized transportation for getting children to and from school, but the actual loading and unloading of students onto the buses is by far to most dangerous time for our kids.

We must all do our part to keep our kids safe by obeying basic traffic laws, especially those related to school zones and school bus pick up and drop off areas.

If there is a school bus with its red lights flashing and stop arm extended, both lanes of traffic must come to a complete stop at least 20’ behind or in front of the bus and remain stopped until the stop arm is retracted and flashing lights cancelled.

Drivers who ignore the flashing lights and stop arm of a school bus are not only seriously endangering our children but will be subject to a fine of $100 and 6 points assessed against their driver’s license.

The Dickinson Police Department will be taking an aggressive approach related to the enforcement of school bus stop arm violations and would like to remind everyone to be vigilant and drive safely.

Dickinson Police Department K9’s Niko & Gambit have received body armor

Dickinson Police Department K9’s Niko & Gambit have received bullet and stab protective vests thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. K9 Niko & Gambit’s vests were sponsored by Diana Trussell of ND and embroidered with the sentiment “This gift of protection provided by Vested Interest in K9s, Inc”.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c (3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 2,600 protective vests, in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a cost of over 2.1 million dollars.

The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate.

The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $1,050.00. Each vest has a value between $1,795 – $2,234 and a five-year warranty, and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There is an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States. For more information or to learn about volunteer opportunities, please call 508-824-6978. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts tax-deductible donations of any denomination at www.vik9s.org or mailed to P.O. Box 9 East Taunton, MA 02718.
