A new program will allow Laramie and Cheyenne police officers to help one another during the Jubilee and Frontier Days weekends this month.
The arrangement allows an employee of one city to work in another city as needed. The police departments have decided to pilot the program with a focus on preventing drunk driving during the two popular festivals, beginning this weekend.
Commander Mitchell Cushman of the Laramie Police Department says that while the Cheyenne officers will be actively patrolling for impaired drivers, they will be able to enforce all Laramie laws.
The Laramie Police Department is asking the public for help locating a suspect. The LPD is seeking a white male, about 5-foot-10 and weighing 210 pounds, wearing a silver jacket and camouflage pants.
Police made a call at the suspect’s residence for an unrelated issue and found items used in methamphetamine preparation. One of the residents is cooperating and the other is still at large, though not considered dangerous.
Police Commander Mitchell Cushman says the nature of the investigation has evolved now.
