The Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers board recently approved the purchase of LED Rechargeable Traffic Control Flares for the Lufkin ISD Police Dept. The request was made by Lufkin ISD Police Officer Jeff Taylor who felt these devices were a necessity when directing traffic and reducing accidents around the district’s fifteen campuses and school events.
Several members of the Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers board met today to present the lights to the Lufkin ISD Police Dept. They were able to purchase 15 sets of lights to be used across the district.
“This project will assist in bringing more awareness to motorists that attend our events, which would hopefully reduce accidents. Therefore reducing the need for a law enforcement response. We appreciate the Crime Stoppers board making this decision to supply our department with the equipment we need to keep our students, staff and community safe,” said Officer Taylor.
Deep East Texas Crime Stoppers, Inc. is a non-profit organization (a charity) with a Board of Directors comprised of citizens from the East Texas area providing direction as to the financial and promotional activities of the Program.
