Paragould police will heavily enforce school zones

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) – With school starting soon, the Paragould Police Department will work school zones heavily.

Corporal Jack Hailey of the Paragould Police Department said the department is prepared for the beginning of the school.

"We have looked at it and anticipated it and we've actually gone out and went over it with the school administration, this is how it's supposed to work. Make sure that people do know, you know this is where you go in and this is where you go out, those types of things," Hailey said.

Hailey offered some reminders to make the process of back-to-school smoother.

Cell phone usage while in a school zone is illegal. Hailey said looking both ways before driving through a crosswalk and slowing down for children and buses are safety precautions drivers should do.  

The department will monitor the school zones for at least several weeks.
