Operation Bunny Hop II

Beginning Thursday, April 5th through Sunday, April 8th, the Hinds County Sheriff's Office, in cooperation with other central Mississippi law enforcement agencies, will engage in Operation Bunny Hop II.

The main goal of this Operation will serve as the foundation of how area law enforcement agencies is responding to criminal activity and improving the quality of life for our citizens and visitors, as well as establishing our proactive approach to crime prevention while increasing visibility.

The purpose of this multi-jurisdictional exercise is to ensure a safe Easter holiday for families in and around Hinds County area.

“We want people to feel secure while attending cook outs, Easter egg hunts and other community events this weekend. Not only in Hinds County but in our neighboring counties as well,” said Sheriff Tyrone Lewis, “We are striving for an atmosphere of cooperation and information sharing with the participating departments.”
