In August, Officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Woody LN NW, on a report of shots fired. Upon arrival, officers observed a vehicle leaving the scene at a high rate of speed. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle which ultimately fled. Using a Pursuit Intervention Technique, officers were able to disable the vehicle and take two males into custody. One of the males admitted to firing a handgun in the air during an altercation with residents at the home. Both males were arrested for multiple felony charges. During the course of their investigation, officers and detectives located a handgun near an apartment building in the area, which they determined was thrown from the vehicle as it fled. Detectives determined this was not a random act and all parties involved were acquainted. Several people at the home were also arrested for narcotics violations and warrants. Our officers are dedicated to bringing perpetrators to justice while considering all factors involved in these types of high-risk situations. Fleeing motorists have become a common theme encountered by our officers. There are many factors to consider when pursuing a fleeing motorist including the risks to everyone involved. We have seen a sharp increase in fleeing motorists; 2019 - 17, 2020 - 45, 2021 - 78.

Tonight's the night!! Our staff is ready to get out and meet our neighbors!

Helping citizens in need is one of the greatest joys of police work! We would like to introduce you to Patrick and Community Service Officer Eric Prindle. Patrick was reported missing one night recently after going for a walk and not coming home. His family was concerned because Patrick suffers from Parkinson’s disease and hadn’t taken his medication. The next morning, Officer Prindle heard Patrick’s calls for help when he was out searching for him…and a team of officers, firefighters and medics were able to get Patrick back home safely.
