take the
MADD pledge

On September 5th, 1980, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) began a mission- “To aid the victims of crimes performed by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, to aid the families of such victims and to increase public awareness of the problem of drinking and drugged driving." In 2015, that mission changed to “end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking.” From its humble beginnings 35 years ago, MADD has evolved into one of the most influential and widely supported non-profit organizations in America.

Meth Lab

If the images above resemble items you've seen while walking through your neighborhood, you may have unknowingly encountered the remnants of methamphetamine production. Turns out your neighborhood “cook” has most likely decided that getting high and making money is more important than preventing you or anyone else from being exposed to the extremely hazardous chemical waste left over from a meth lab. If you discover a meth lab, leave at once and contact the Hazard Police Department immediately. For more information on how to recognize a meth lab, click here.

Featured Cold Case

In 1983, 20-year old Debbie Eckles was found unresponsive inside of her home located in the Walkertown section of Hazard on Turner Avenue. She was stabbed multiple times. It was very obvious from the beginning of this investigation that Debbie personally knew her killer. We wish to solve this case for multiple reasons. Chiefly of which, to bring closure to Debbie's living family members. Even though over 30 years have passed, we believe that the person responsible for Debbie's murder is still out there and may even be reading this statement. NOW IS THE TIME TO BRING CLOSURE. If you or anyone you know has information regarding this crime, you are encouraged to contact the HPD directly or submit an anonymous tip.
