  1. Dear Rob Lawson:

    I was at the light going south on Princeton and County line when a police office was behind me. We all heard honking (and i saw in my mirror a person kicking his legs from under the car). The officer realized that there was an accident. I don’t know which Police Office it was, but i would like to say that i was very impressed with his quick response……..and thank you.

  2. he is the officer that was giving stickers to the kids in a development educating them about Safety what a nice guy i hope he gets an award at the next lpd awards ceromony

  3. Cops should know most people out there appreciate what they do. If they would just be a little more friendly people would recipracate 10x over to them.

  4. we have to thank the entire police department for their care & sensitivity they show to the entire community i must say that since rob lawson has taken over i feel the the whole department as part of our community

  5. # 11….hmmm …..talking on phone, texting, being in a hurry, or driving and not paying attention to the road in front of you………and I guess the person on the bicycle could have darted out in front of the car or was n the wrong side of the road…or……..

  6. To # 11 –

    With the facts having not been released, there is no way to tell who was at fault. Either the cyclist crossed when she wasn’t legally allowed. Or the driver was turning right and didn’t yield. Perhaps another scenario.

  7. Thank you LPD once again! You guys are great. I agree with # 5 to a certain extent but I will clarify what I think he means. The majority of cops are nice,it’s those few rotten apples who spoil it for the rest. THE REST ARE AMAZING!! Keep it up!
    Eric: I already once commented your last name is misspelled-it should be “Mentsch”(Yiddish for very kind and caring person)
