Lexington Police Report

by Captain Clarence Yarbourgh

April 16, 2012

Cpt. Yarbrough and Officer Sudduth took a walk-in complaint at the Lexington Police Department from a subject stating he was being followed. A report was taken and an investigation was conducted. The alleged person identified to have been following the complainant was contacted and interviewed. It was determined through the investigation there was no malicious act or intent involved and it was merely a coincidence.

Cpt. Yarbrough and Officer Sudduth arrived at the Senior Citizens Center and met with the Girl Scouts. The theme was the Duties and Responsibilities of a Law Enforcement Officer on a Critical Scene. Cpt. Yarbrough answered several questions from the Girl Scouts and provided them with the necessary awareness on how to report, respond to, and handle certain situations. They were informed of the dangers of being a police officer and how intense our training has to be to perform our duties. The Girl Scouts were also informed on why it is important for police to be a part of the community and the safety which is provided through the services of local law enforcement.
