Get Your
Run On!!!

Whether staying fit or just trying to out-run a cop so that you can ditch your meth without being seen, running can be fun and exciting ;) That's why we are pleased to present the 3rd Annual HPD 5K “Foot Pursuit”. Earlier this year, another cancer diagnosis struck the HPD family when Mandi Dishner, wife of HPD Major Russell Dishner, was diagnosed with uterine cancer at the age of 33. All proceeds from this years race will go to her cancer fund. Pre-registration is $20 or $25 on the day of the race.

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.
