Cop's Corner with Captain Cupp

Captain David G. Cupp

Captain Cupp is the Traffic Division 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.

The Topic this week is: Independence Day

The City of Bartlett will be celebrating Independence Day on Saturday July 2, 2011. The location will again be on Appling Road in front of the Bartlett Performing Arts Center. The road will be closed to vehicular traffic starting at 4:00pm with the event scheduled to begin at 6:30pm. Parking will be in the field behind Bartlett Recreation Center just follow the signs. This has grown over the years to be one of our largest events second only to our Christmas Parade. This is a combined effort of all city services coming together to make this a safe and memorable event that is geared to the family. Please be responsible adults and refrain from drinking alcohol while at this event.

My major concern is safety especially at the end of the Fireworks Show when we have a mixture of walking traffic and vehicular traffic coming together and everyone trying to leave at the same time. We have worked very hard to see that the elements come together without injury or accidents. We are asking for you to be patient and give us a few minutes to get things cleared out. So come, bring your family and have fun on our Country’s Celebration.
