Jasper Police Department unveils vehicles designed by highschoolers

Local News

JASPER, Ind. (WEHT) – Jasper Police Department unveiled two new School Resource Officer (SRO) vehicles Tuesday at the Board of Public Works & Safety.

With the generous support of several donors, the Jasper Police Department was able to receive two SRO vehicles: a 2019 Dodge Ram Truck, driven by SRO Brian Lampert, and a 2020 Ford Mustang, driven by Jason Knies. The vehicle graphics were designed by students from the Jasper High School and wrapped by 2 Sign Guys.

The hope for these vehicles is to get students to engage in conversation and help build relationships with our School Resource Officers. The school Resource Officers interact with students, but this can be an additional way to build pride with officers and students.

With the help of the Dubois County Community Foundation, they’ve had donors come forward to support the project. They really appreciate the support of the community and they are excited to promote the pride of the Jasper School Corporation.
