Police department unveils school vehicles

From Local Sources

JASPER — The Jasper Police Department unveiled two new school resource officer vehicles at Monday’s meeting of the Board of Public Works and Safety.

“With the generous support of several great donors, the Jasper Police Department was able to receive two SRO vehicles: a 2019 Dodge Ram Truck, driven by SRO Brian Lampert, and a 2020 Ford Mustang, driven by Jason Knies,” a press release reads.

The vehicles’ graphics were designed by students from Jasper High School, and they were wrapped on by 2 Sign Guys. In its release, the city thanked community donors for making the purchase of the vehicles possible.

“The hope for these vehicles is to get students to engage in conversation and help build relationships with our School Resource Officers,” the release reads. “Our School Resource Officers do a great job of interacting with students, but this can be an additional way to build pride with officers and students. With the help of the Dubois County Community Foundation, we’ve had some great donors come forward to support this project. We really appreciate the support of the community and excited to promote the pride of the Jasper School Corporation.”
