Take care our children are back to school

Ridgecrest Police Officer Michael Pettit uses a Lidar Lazar Radar gun to detect traffic violators in the Las Flores Elementary School Zone. Captain Aaron Tucker of the Ridgecrest Police Department reminds parents, “It’s important for parents of children walking to school to go over basic walking safety tips. Make sure to use crosswalks and obey walking signals at stop lights.”   He reminds drivers, “In the mornings when school starts and in the afternoon when school ends, we make sure we have officers patrolling around the schools making sure that people are driving safely.”
