Many find it surprising but the spring is actually one of the busiest times of the year for law enforcement.


As the weather turns and more and more people are spending time outside, Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers indicates the increased mobility of people outside brings an increase in calls to law enforcement.



According to the Chief, motorcyclists are dusting off the bikes and getting them out again. Kids are taking their bikes out for a ride more frequently and people are just out more walking. He calls on everyone to be extra aware of their surroundings no matter where they're at.



Being respectful to your neighbors has long been a focus for the Chief and as we enter the season with outdoor gatherings, he encourages trying to limit the noise as much as possible. He says this is a common complaint. Additionally, Chief Lowers reminds residents there is not burning within city limits.



If you're still digging out from those tree branches and limbs that have fallen from winter storms and windy spring days, the Chief points residents to the yard waste facility on Cain Street in Clinton or to utilize the once-a-month yard waste pick up by the City. That will resume on normal regulations this month.
