“We want everyone to have a fun summer, but safety is always our top concern. We’ve received several calls about teens jumping from the Waverly Rd Bridge and hanging on passing boats.” Tom Dermody.
Not only is this extremely unsafe, but it also violates City ordinance. Our City of La Porte Police Department will be working closely with the La Porte County Sheriff’s Office as well as the DNR to catch violators. If caught, a minimum fine of $50 will be issued.
Please, talk to your teens about this and help us keep everyone safe.
If you spot jumpers, you can call the police department’s non-emergency line at 219-362-9446.
