Big Spring Police Department Facebook Page

The Big Spring Police Department is proud to announce the launch of its Facebook page (Big Spring Police Department). The Department recognizes the invaluable benefit and outreach that Facebook can provide. The Facebook page can be used to share important departmental information, safety and traffic alerts, emergency alerts and in addition provide helpful crime-prevention tips to citizens. The Big Spring Police Department is committed to being engaged with our community and transparent in our activities. We know that we can't do our jobs effectively without the support of our community. By becoming more active in social media we hope to increase the ability to share accurate information with our community members and create a platform for two-way communication that is convenient to our citizens. Currently the Big Spring Police Department has three employees that will be responsible for the posting and monitoring of the Facebook page, though the page will not be monitored 24/7, due to other assignments the personnel are tasked with. The Big Spring Police Department Facebook page is not intended to replace the Big Spring Police Department Howard County Sheriff's Office Crime Stoppers Facebook page and the page is not intended to be utilized for crime reporting or tips relating to crimes. For reporting any crimes please call the Howard County Detention Dispatch Center at (432)264-2244 or (432)264-2550, or in case of emergency call 911. The Department is excited to open the new communication avenue and hope that the information we provide will be helpful to the community and citizens we serve.

Fawn Rescue

TJ Holding Fawn drinkingFawn drinkingTouring the LEC

This very thirsty orphaned little girl was just found and rescued by our Animal Control Officers and she made a big hit around the office! There was no shortage of helping hands to assist in pulling cactus thorns, re-hydrating, and cleaning her up thanks to all of the girls in the Records and Identification Divisions down at the station. She even got to take a tour and inspect our facilities!

She will be relocated to the Lubbock Wildlife & Rehabilitation center where she will be cared for until she can be released back into the wild.
