Southside Virginia Community College(SVCC) recently donated some bicycles to the Lawrenceville Police Department(LPD) for use in their patrols. The college used the bikes for awhile but saw a need at a local department and decided to donate them. LPD Chief Everette Gibson said his department has three officers, plus himself, certified through the International Police Mountain Bike Association to patrol with bikes and others will train as well. The bikes will be used to patrol events and throughout the town. The college also donated a Firearms Training Simulator to the Emporia Police Department. Shown at the donation are(Left to Right) LPD Assistant Chief J.T. Stith, Chief Gibson and Dr. Alfonzo Seward, SVCC Administration of Justice Assistant Professor.
