The Hopkinsville Police Department conducted another “warrants and summons blitz” Wednesday, serving several dozen by the time the effort was done.
A news release says Warrants Officer John Bracey and seven other officers conducted a five-hour detail in which they focused on serving as many warrants and summonses as possible.
When it was over, nine warrants and 30 summonses had been served, with six of those individuals arrested. Public Information Officer Paul Ray says there is a distinctive correlation between people wanted on warrants for other crimes and their committing new crimes before being located.
Officer Ray says Wednesday’s effort helped get wanted people off the streets, thus possibly helping to prevent future crimes in Hopkinsville.
