Kings Island

What's the most fun thing to do on a Friday night? Visit Kings Island of course! We're open tonight from 5-10 p.m. And while you're here, take a ride on Mystic Timbers, voted "Best New Ride" in 2017 by Amusement Today. ...

 

Comment on Facebook

I am so looking forward to my first official visit tonight!!!!

Are all the rides open today and tomorrow?

Early rides for gold pass tonight?

What planet snoopy rides are included in gold pass holder early rides tonight Kings Island?

We'll be renewing our passes this weekend but first I'm wanting to know something. In the past, we've renewed our passes a few days before park opening so we didn't have to pay for parking since it wasn't open yet. My question for you is when we show up this weekend, will we get reimbursed for our parking the day we get our passes renewed if we will renew them the day of visit or will we get a credit on the pass(s)? I'm planning on going tomorrow morning. Thank you!!

Want to go while in area in May but car troubles may dampen some of our plans. Gotta stay on budget. Will for sure get some outside park pics. Hotel is just down the street. Get a few rides on M.T for me K.I fans for me just in case.

We'll be there Sunday!! And the weather looks perfect!

Beast night ride before bed sounds fabulous to me!

Once on Delirium was enough for me !

I'm going in june

Be there tomorrow

brrrrr!

Cory Byrd wanna go tonight? Lol

Ryan Kaufmann let’s go lol

"Turn signal violation". If you hadn't found drugs you would have hit him with something else that he would have mailed in the fine for to avoid going back to your shithole state.

Finally!!! A solid good bust instead of weed!

If government really wanted heroin off the streets they’d leave Afghanistan and stop protecting the opium industry. But busts like this keep the prisons full and politicians’ pockets fat.

Thank you for getting it off the streets! AND GO, haters......

Good job to the officer K-9.and his fellow officers.

Finally! Someone pulled over for a turn signal violation! I wish this was enforced more often because almost no one uses them anymore! Jack

Awesome! You Troopers are best in the drug busting business. Keep up the great work. 😎

Good job officer ! Thank you for your service..

Good job officers thank you for your service keep it up God bless you and your families

Great! Keep that illegal contraband from further distributions. It's poison and needs destroyed. Thank you.

GOOD job..live OUR OHIO STATE HIGHWAY PATROL OFFICERS... PRAY FOR THEIR SAFETY

That’s what I’m talking about. Keep it up Staties get it off the streets. Thank you!

Awesome job and thank you for your service

Great another one bites the dusts keep up the good work.

The dogs did their job way to go puppy dogs I love dogs so much they're very smart and they know how to work it's just a shame a lot of people don't know much about the love and Trust and companion of a dog

Nice bust ,keep up the good work.Thank you and stay safe ! K-9 's steak time,always doing their part.

Good bust troopers. Keep up the good work. Be safe out there.

They got a tip, and then did nonsense to circumvent someone's rights to privacy, and used that to violate other people's self ownership. Sad!

Hell yeah great jobs troopers, keep up the good work keeping that crap off the streets. Thank you

Good work, keep sharp, keep safe.

Good job troops ! Keep up the great work.

Great job😁 take all the dealers down

Beautiful job ! Keep up the good work !

Comment on Facebook

I don't think State Highway Patrol or any police should have to notify people of OVI check points. The way I see it you should obey the laws and stay off the road if you been drinking.

They’re required to publicly announce these checkpoints.

I dont have nothing to worry about i don't drink

Good luck troops...a drunk removed from the road is a life saved.

Sadly, I wish they didn’t have to say. I almost lost a uncle in August of 2016 and he just had his EIGHTH surgery A FEW DAYS AGO and it was his sons birthday because a drug driver!! He had to be life flighted and everything. They had to make changes to their house. My cousins were in and out of school while he was in the hospital in PA. Sad part is police were called and just couldn’t get to the guy in time. But ones who have a fit over it. Imagine yourself and your family having to go through what mine did. It’s not worth it. And I find it sad they have to treat adults like middle schoolers.

Thank you OSP!

Thank you guy from www.moveoverohio.com

THANK YOU OSHP!

take the Next of Kin forms with you and pass those out it is a great tool for Police and Family. When people have their 2 Emergency contacts w/ their driver's license Police will know who to locate easier Please do this for your family. #forever23DavidMoney sites.google.com/site/davidmoneynextofkincom/

Thank you for your service ,stay safe out there .I remember reading about a sobriety check where a driver was so drunk ,he just barreled right through it . Luckily no serious injuries.

And I just want to say that we are blessed to have this post here in Delaware. Just the other night troopers stopped a vehicle in our drive through that was stolen and handled everything perfectly. Awesome troopers! They even picked up the trash that was left from having to search the vehicle!

Bottom one reminds me of Woooster Ohio

I remember going there when my brother, Sgt. Sid Stark, worked there and Nora Faye Winters was Dispatcher. Long time ago!!

WOW !!! What a difference 57yrs. makes.... Nice

I guess the mom will never forget either of their names since they are essentially the same (backwards from eachother). I hope these girls are safe.

I don't know the situation and I pray they get home safely, but I think you guys defending their mom if they did see this is not going to want to make the come home. Please realize that you may not know what's going on in their heads and don't just down play that. Yes it may just be over reacting but make sure. You don't know what could have happened

Heaven,Nevaeh please return back home I know your Mother didn't say anything out the way to you two that make you think it's okay to run way there's nothing out here but nasty old ass men that will try to take advantage of you and babies there's nothing more that your mother could have said to y'all to that make you all think that y'all was grown enough to run away please return home!🙏🙏praying for a safe return!!

Go home girls you have no clue what the streets are about. You only have 1 mom respect that and know she only wants what is best for both of you.

Please girls go home. You can work things out with mom.

It is my understanding that the girls were found this morning. Scroll to the 2nd article www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2018/04/cleveland_police_search_for_mi_13.html

Please go home there is nothing in the streets

Jesus take the wheel and bring these young ladies back home safely amen

Hope that the make a safe return home we are losing to many young girls I will keep them and there family in my prayers

Praying for safe return!😢

PRAYERS!!! GOD BLESS THEM BOTH!!! WATCH OVER THEM AND HELP THEM GET HOME SAFELY!!!

Baby girls if you're reading this, please please go home to your Mom.

Jennifer Crowder check out the girls name! Praying for safe return

Cleveland Police

A Message from Chief Calvin D. Williams

Recently, it has come to my attention there are those who believe the safety of our officers is not paramount to the Cleveland Division of Police and to the City of Cleveland, and this could not be further from the truth.

It has also come to my attention that many believe that our officers operate under a "no chase policy." This also could not be further from the truth. I want to make it clear that Cleveland police officers are authorized to and will pursue suspects wanted for crimes of violence and for OVI related offenses.

The current policies of the Cleveland Division of Police regarding vehicle pursuits give officers very specific guidance pertaining to when vehicle pursuits are appropriate and authorized. To be clear, vehicle pursuits are not authorized in cases of nonviolent crimes. Our officers will not become engaged in vehicle pursuits solely relating to property crimes. Chasing suspects at high rates of speed in vehicles solely to recover property is not only inappropriate, but it puts the lives of our residents and our officers in danger unnecessarily.

Officers are authorized to conduct vehicle pursuits in order to take violent suspects or intoxicated drivers into custody. This most certainly includes suspects who have committed violence, including attempting to harm our police officers.

The pursuit policies of the Cleveland Division of Police are detailed and follow best practice. The policies are in effect to protect the lives of officers and citizens alike. Taking violent offenders off of our streets is equally important and our officers shall conduct vehicle pursuits when this action is appropriate.

Since I became Chief, I have been committed to providing the best police services to the citizens of Cleveland while providing the highest level of training possible to ensure the safety of our officers. This commitment has not changed.

Quoted "Officers are authorized to conduct vehicle pursuits in order to take violent suspects or intoxicated drivers into custody." Now, a vehicle a week earlier that shot shots and rammed a zone car a week later shoots 30 shots and some at officers is not "VIOLENT SUSPECTS" This was a bad call to stop the chase, you know it, I know it, the public knows it. Wake up and know what is going on in this city. We woke up a few years ago and know. They have had ATM machines hanging out the back of vehicles on at least 2 calls chasing the suspects in smash and grabs, and were called off. If it is the hard working peoples money this city wants everyone to throw on the ground to all the so called poor which is actually the ones this city and state has made lazy by giving them everything when they are perfectly capable of working but refuse to, and when it is not enough which is tossed to them they carjack, rob at gunpoint, break-in to houses case cars you name it they are doing it. And the courts are pathetic on sentencing, spin the door to catch over and over again because you are filling up the jails with murderers and claim no room. MAKE ROOM. People are sick of the BS.

we all heard the tape of the call. sgt. Hartman needs discipline. the fact that you are not punishing him, leads us all to believe that you side with no chase policy. you are ruining this city for us all with your worthless policies and federal ass kissing. my children have to live and grow here. they deserve safety. not your bullshit

Why are officers posting a whole different opinion. Just asking

the radio recording I heard was to end chase after suspects fire at a police officer .....trust me the bad guys know the brave men/women in blue's hands are tied. no disrespect chief but someone needs to clear up this policy

That radio tape says a whole different story. That criminal last week shot at an officer and his superior told him to terminate the chase. As a resident and taxpayer who pays your salary, I find this to be total bullshit! Funny how I tried to contract the mayor on this matter and have yet to receive a response back. City Hall must have forgotten that you work for us and we do not work for you!!!

How about going after the gangs in the city. Get rid of them if your in a gang you go to prison for life make Cleveland a safe place to live no one is above the law keep are police officers safe and let them do there job !!!!

How does the cop who was shot at and then told to stop pursuit feel? How do the other officers who have heard of this situation feel? The moral has to be so down in the CPD. They KNOW THEY DONT HAVE SUPPORT FROM THE SUPERVISORS AND SUPERIORS. I’m sure the motivation they have to do there job is sky high (sarcasm)

Tail wagging the dog. Anywhere east of downtown is little Iraq these days. When you don’t give your officers the autonomy to do their job out of fear of public perception and retaliation, you send a message to that community to do as they please with no fear of consequence. Chief of Police and Mayor need to go.

One question. The policy that was posted on another website say they can pursue for violent crimes or OVI, but says if that car blows stop signs or drives reckless the officers are to stop chasing! IS THAT TRUE?? If so then it is basically a no pursuit policy because a majority of cars not stopping for the police are reckless and do not obey traffic laws.

Sadly, what the rules state AND reality don't always align. What the brass says and what anyone with a modicum of intelligence can see/hear leaves the impression that there is a large disconnect between those at the top and those on the street. Please don't ruin what little credibility you have left by spouting policies that aren't followed in reality. IMO the unspoken policy (of the brass) is don't do anything that might end in bad guys getting shot. Rather then risk protest marches, you let the bad guys get away - to continue doing more bad stuff.

Actions speak louder than words. Your leadership is a joke. This City has turned into a shithole because of Frank Jackson and Chief Calvin.

What about when a suspect fires a gun at a police officer and then takes off? That chase was called off, putting other officers in danger!

This is so not the truth you say an officer being shot at was not a violent crime you say in officers car being rammed by another is not a violent crime!!!!! as I recall you called off both of those chases!!!!! Please just stop with the B.S.and let our officers do what they were hired to do Serve and Protect

Whatever policy may be... today's officers, with the disrespect and lack for authority, that seems to be taught and shows in even young teens towards officers- that we as a society need to abolish. You couldn't pay me enough to be an police officer. To go in everyday risking ur life then deal with the bs of those in higher rank on top of public day to day dealings of disrespect? I guess I'm starting to feel the gap of generations because when I was growing up we were taught to show respect for authority. And now it's becoming public knowledge that ranking officials dont even have ur back? I simply feel the people who take this huge responsibility of a job are highly UNDERPAID. Teachers and police should make way more than the business suits sitting behind desks,in meetings, or in public eye even. If your a police officer today I just want to say "Thank You" - whatever motivates you to continue I hope is met with support and public love for what you go out and do everyday. Can you imagine what Cleveland would be like without the men and woman who give so much everyday to uphold laws and protect its citizens? God Bless...

The safety of your officers means nothing to the administration. It is obvious the only thing that matters is following of the consent decree and the Federal Monitors. Who by the way are leaching our tax dollars and providing nothing.

I would expect any officer to chase any fleeing suspect no matter the crime they commit. Fleeing from police is in and of itself a felony. I find it completely irresponsible, highly unprofessional, and unacceptable for police to let a felon get away.

Every criminal in the city knows all they have to do is keep driving. Now they know they can shoot at our officers with no consequences. I guess my definition of "violent crime" differs from yours.

I heard the radio traffic. Your Sgt was wrong to terminate that pursuit. He either had the support of the administration, or he did not. If he did not, he would be punished. End of story. If He walked, he had your support.

What if it was Jackson or you being shot at? Would that be different?? You are putting your men and women in blue in significant danger! Im really glad I dont live in Cleveland anymore. I live where the police officers can do their jobs and I for one feel safe....God bless all of the officers out there and may they be safe, without the backing of the admin.....

When our officers stop taking commands from that daft mayor, your safety won’t be a factor or even an issue. If something happens to our officers, their blood will be on mayor Jackass’ hands. Hold him accountable and quit enabling him/his ways.

If this is true then the supervisor who terminated that chase should be brought up on administrative charges.

Lies, your one of Mayor Jackass cronies, we Clevelanders the people who pay you want, need more police officers on the streets, in our neighborhoods with the right to do their jobs and have enough officer's to be safe.

DOJ also found that Cleveland Police officers have among the LOWEST salaries in the state...have you reported THAT to the citizens of Cleveland? Have you told the citizens that the DOJ thinks the CITY should have been doing much more to train and support the CPD? Mayor and Chief, start showing your unmitigated support by paying these officers competitive salaries! You can’t keep up with retirement losses and are losing newly trained officers to the suburban departments left and right. You farmed out recruit training to the subpar OHP academy, and recruits return to CLE needing to be re-trained properly. Don’t believe it? Look at the state testing results when CLE had the recruits vs when OHP took over. Interview your new PO’s about their experiences. Allow PO’s to annually evaluate the performance of their superiors. Collect feedback from the bottom up in the department, not just the top down...give every PO a voice. The dysfunction in the department must be addressed. Politics should not be playing as large of a role as it does where law and order is concerned.

I'm Afraid for my life traveling in Cleveland imagine if the mayor was being shot at. How differt that would have been. Dont you have 24 hour protection outside of your house mr. Mayor, good for you. What about others. Try to go down to west 44 or Fulton after dark. Good luck on that.

On a daily basis, CPD radio transmissions tell a different tale. It is no wonder why the city is being taken over by criminals. Thanks Mayor Jackson, criminals can shoot at officers and not be pursued. Also, the supervisor that called off the chase should resign.

Lesson 1: Target every out of state driver, pull them over for not using a signal, hoping for a drug bust while the other 100 dealers with Ohio plates drive by.

Boy, that's tough stuff!! I could never have done that!!!
