“Our officers wanted to take part in the program to give back to the Oxford community that has been so supportive to them over the years.,” explained Officer Donovan Lyons, who coordinated special events for OPD.  “Our department would also like to raise awareness of the ongoing fight against litter in the city.  Despite all the recent cleanups, (Big Event, Trash Bash) litter continues to pile up on our roadways.”
Three-quarters of a ton of trash was removed.
