Hinton Police Officers planning community litter cleanup


The Hinton Police Department is organizing a community wide cleanup Saturday, April 24, to help remove litter from around the town.

Officers are asking anyone willing to lend a helping hand to come out and assist in the effort to make Hinton a little cleaner.

Deputy Chief Tim Atkins said not only will this benefit the town and environment, it gives police and civilians an opportunity to work side by side.

“Everything that we do is together and this is a chance that the police department can kind of get with the people and interact with them and we can have fun” Atkins said.

Everyone interesting in helping out is asked to meet at Bellepoint Park at noon on Saturday before heading out to begin the cleanup. Everyone is asked to bring your own gloves and safety vests if you own them.

Officers also thank all of the local businesses and people around Hinton for donating supplies. Dollar General, Hinton High Rise, Studio M, and Safe and Sound Security were among the many that chipped in.
