The following is very important information regarding SELLERSBURG CELEBRATES (please read carefully, this is a long post).

The only PUBLIC and VENDOR entrance to SELLERSBURG CELEBRATES is off of CR 403 and Commerce Park (like you are going to the Silver Creek Primary or Rock Creek Schools). The public will enter there and follow signs that will route you down Greenleaf Rd to Diefenbach Rd, which turns into N Fern St (follow the signs). The PUBLIC and VENDORS will turn right into the park entrance (there will be an Officer there to direct you). Please park in designated areas and do not block the paved walking path that you will be driving on. If the walking path is blocked by any vehicles or motorcycles, you are subject to getting your vehicle towed.

When you are exiting the event, follow the signs which will lead you toward the area of the carnival rides. Continue to follow the signs and safety cones to the front parking lot of the ball park toward N Fern St. You will turn right out of the front parking lot onto N Fern St. Continue on N Fern St to E Utica St. From there you have the option of turning left or right onto E Utica St (there will be an Officer there to direct you).

The only persons permitted to enter from E Utica St are residents who live on N Fern and Adkins Ct, Event Staff, and Emergency Personal. Residents and Staff will have designated passes to enter here. NO ONE WITHOUT A DESIGNATED PASS WILL BE PERMITTED TO ENTER HERE. Staff will enter the back parking lot of the ball park via Adkins Ct. Please understand if you are turned away.

This route is done to get everyone in and out of the event safely. We do not have access to some of the adjoined property like we have had in the years past, which helped the traffic flow out of the event much easier. We have to use what we have to the best of our ability for safety.

Saturday morning is the parade. This is a very very busy time. The parade will start at 10am at Haas Cabinets on W Utica St and cross US 31 onto E Utica St. Then the parade will turn left onto N Fern St. Some will then turn into the front entrance to the park and some will continue out the back side toward Rock Creek and the Silver Creek Primary School. If you are a parent and your child is in the parade, please pick them up at your designated spots. After the parade is over please do not try and exit N Fern St onto E Utica St. This is going to be very difficult with all the traffic.

It is going to be a very hot weekend with high temperatures. Please drink a lot of water and give yourself plenty of time to get in and out of the event. Please drive safely and watch for pedestrians walking.

The following are the public hours for the SELLERSBURG CELEBRATES EVENT

Thursday August 26th 5p to 10p
Friday August 27th 5p to 11p
Saturday August 28th 12p to 11p

If you are a vendor or part of the parade and have questions, please get with the person you registered with.

All other questions regarding traffic and police security, please contact Deputy Chief Matthew Adams at 812-246-4491 or by email at [email protected].

Please share and pass this important information along to help everyone have a safe and great time this weekend at SELLERSBURG CELEBRATES.

The individuals who keep breaking into vehicles hit again early this morning around 4am just outside our area in Floyd County. These are juveniles from Louisville. They were in a stolen vehicle and chased by the police. They struck a police vehicle during the pursuit. This is just a reminder for everyone to continue to lock your vehicles and remove all valuables (especially fi****ms). If anyone sees or hears anything please dial 911. If you are a night owl and see dome lights on in vehicles in your neighborhood, call the police. If you see a car driving slowly in your area and several people out running around, call the police. Please DO NOT approach these juveniles. They have been known to be armed and have even shot at homeowners who have confronted them. Please share and let your neighbors know. When they check the vehicle doors and find them locked, they move on to the next one.

•••UPDATE•••The videos have been recorded and we are awaiting tomorrow evening to post the first one. We will try and post a video around 6pm each day this week. Hopefully the videos will post without issue so you can sit down with your kiddos and share these short Christmas Book readings before bedtime.

Our Officers are working on something neat for the kiddos the week of Christmas. Starting Monday evening December 21st, we will be posting a video every evening of an Officer reading a Christmas book for everyone. Some of our Officers stop by the schools and read to some of the classes, but since school is not currently in, they decided to bring it to them virtually through our FB Page. Stay tuned!

Update: This is the same group. One of the suspects spoke with our Officer and said they have been doing this in our area and surrounding areas.

About an hour ago the Sellersburg Police assisted the Clark County Sheriff’Department with a vehicle pursuit of a White Kia Optima involving a suspect breaking into vehicles. A suspect was apprehended after bailing from the vehicle and running on foot. The same vehicle was reported to have been in a vehicle pursuit with a Kentucky Police Department prior to coming to Indiana. We believe this is still the same group from before and wanted to make everyone aware that this group is still active. Please continue to do what you have been doing by locking your vehicles and removing fi****ms and other valuables. If anyone has any video of a White Kia Optima in your area from last night or this morning please share the video with the Clark County Sheriff Department.

Tonight is the night, “Wednesday” which seems to be the night these individuals like to hit our community. We need everyone to help spread the word and make sure you and your neighbors are REMOVING ALL FI****MS and valuables from your vehicles and making sure you are LOCKING ALL YOUR VEHICLES DOORS. Double and triple check just to make sure. We need to make it hard for these individuals so they will come up empty handed when they decide to come steal from us. This is going to be the way to keep them out of our town. If they keep scoring valuables and swag from vehicles, they will keep coming back.

The Sellersburg Police Department is investigating several vehicle break ins again. All vehicles were left unlocked and one firearm was stolen from one of the unlocked vehicles. All reports so far have been in the Covered Bridge and Autumn Ridge subdivisions. If anyone has any video in these areas, please send them to us via email. This could be the same group of individuals from before because they also hit an area in New Albany that they had hit before when we first had this issue. Seems like they took a vacation from our area but have returned. We will be working long hours in attempt to catch these individuals but we need our communities help by making sure you LOCK YOUR VEHICLE DOORS AND DO NOT LEAVE FI****MS INSIDE. Please pass the word onto your family, friends, and neighbors. We understand not everyone has social media so please help spread the word. Try getting into the 9pm routine and making sure everything is locked and secured before going to bed. You can also contact dispatch to report any suspicious activity at 812-246-6996.

Thank You

While night shift Officer’s are out patrolling, they will be making contact with homeowners who have left their garage doors open and asking them to secure them. They will also be making contact with you if they notice your vehicles lights/dome lights are on. We all get side tracked and forgot things from time to time. Remember to REMOVE ALL VALUABLES, LOCK ALL YOUR VEHICLES, AND SECURE GARAGE DOORS. Please do not get mad at our Officer’s if they wake you up and ask you to secure your garage doors. We need your help to prevent further vehicle thefts and vehicle break ins. The pattern we have been seeing is that if your vehicle is locked, the individuals that are up to no good have moved on. Please share this and let your family and friends know. We understand not everyone has social media and we need help getting the word out. The vehicle thefts and vehicle break ins are happening all over Southern Indiana and the surrounding Louisville Areas. Please report any suspicious activity to Dispatch at 812-246-6996

More than likely this is the same group we are dealing with in Clark and Floyd County. Please secure your vehicles and do not confront the suspects. Dial 911

Folks, we need to have a serious conversation about a crime wave that has been with us all summer and continues to be a major problem. We’ve seen a huge spike in thefts of vehicles and thefts from vehicles. Nearly 50 vehicles in total and over 30 this summer alone have been reported stolen. Hundreds of unlocked vehicles have been entered, and many items stolen from these vehicles. Some of the stolen vehicles and some of the stolen property have been recovered in Louisville, and we have good reason to believe that many of the ongoing issues are related to criminal activity originating in the Louisville area. We’ve had two incidents in the month of September where citizens have confronted groups of suspects that appear to be juveniles. In both incidents, the juveniles presented fi****ms, and in one case, a firearm was discharged by a suspect. No one was injured, but this should highlight the real potential danger presented by these suspects.

People need to understand that “safe” neighborhoods are being targeted. In other words, neighborhoods that otherwise do not experience consistent criminal or safety issues have been targeted. We don’t want people to be fearful in their neighborhoods, but it should be understood that complacency has consequences. Almost without exception, the stolen vehicles in these cases have been left unlocked with the keys inside. Almost without exception, the stolen property was left inside unlocked vehicles. This is all preventable folks.

Let us be 100% clear. We’re not blaming victims. 100% of the blame belongs to the suspects. However, it’s a small consolation that a victim isn’t blamed for being a victim when a car, purse, cell phone, firearm, or other valuable has been taken by a criminal. Please take this seriously. Understand, that although Elizabethtown remains a safe and wonderful community, there are evil people that target our city for criminal activity. Take the simple steps that anyone can take to protect your property and your person. Build the habit of removing valuables and locking your vehicle. Make it a practice of being watchful over your neighborhood. If you see something, please say something. We do our best to cover our city as much as possible, but there are too few of us to be everywhere at once. We need the watchful eyes and ears of our citizens to help us stop criminal activity. Thank you for taking the time to read, and please share this with your friends and family. Together, we can keep our city safe.
