Cop's Corner with Captain Cupp

Captain David G. Cupp

Captain Cupp is the daytime shift commander for the Bartlett Police Department. Each week Captain Cupp will provide citizens of Bartlett with information useful to Bartlett residents concerning traffic and public safety and little known facts about the Bartlett Police Department.

This week's topic:
School Buses

I have received just in the past week of drivers not stopping for loading and unloading School Buses. This is obviously a very dangerous situation for our kids. When in doubt if you are obligated to stop or not please stop. I have also instructed our Patrol Officers to follow these busses while they load and unload and cite these drivers into court. This is a “Court Mandatory Violation” which can not be paid. Our kids need our help so please obey this law.

Any Traffic Questions or Concerns feel free to contact me at my email address.
