Yeah it’s not about safety or anything it’s because they don’t want you sneaking in food and snacks and want you to pay 20$ for a 12 oz coke lol

No more sneaking food in. Lol

That is sad. Don't they have procedures for approaching dangerous persons?

Pretty soon when law enforcement considers someone armed and dangerous, they'll use deadly force on sight. Like how Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed.

Wow! I'm sorry & my prayers go out to his family and friends 🙏

My sincere condolences to this young man's family.

So Sad my condolences to the family

We have a secret admirer! Actually, this person appears to be a secret supporter of the OPD. While a group of officers were eating lunch at LaRosa's today, our supporter bought EACH of them a $25 gift card. How nice is that? Our officers were very touched by the gesture and wanted to thank them. It's not the monetary value that gives us the feels, it's the thought that truly counts. ...

WEEKEND UPDATE:
> A 25-year-old male was stopped because he had warrants through OPD. We found he had meth and needles on him. The county jail found some other substance hidden away in a very “awkward” spot. (hint: latex gloves were required.) That mystery substance is being sent to the lab for examination.

> Chivalry is dead. Or at least non-existent when one is drunk. Officers were sent uptown for a male and female who were both so drunk they were having trouble standing up, much less walking. Once the police approached them, the male let go of the female, to whom he was offering physical support, and ran away. Just to make sure you caught that..when the police came, he dropped her and ran away (self-centered much?) He was caught by OPD’s star runner, Officer Butler, who easily caught up with him. The female ended up at the hospital and the male was picked up…by his mother.

> Here are a couple stories to give you a different perspective on officer safety. Think about what YOU would think or do in these situations:

---- Officers were sent to a domestic call. Once there, and after the officer had the male drop his multiple pocket knives on the ground, the male suddenly bolted toward the back bedrooms in the apartment. Officer Reihs pursued him so he could not get his hands on other weapons, and the male was quickly subdued. Thankfully, in this case, Officer Reihs was keenly aware and responsive. We do not know why the guy decided to run or what he was planning on doing. Domestics can be extremely unpredictable and dangerous for police officers.

---- While on a traffic stop and seated in the front seat of his cruiser, an officer observed a male walking toward him. The man was walking with purpose, almost aggressively, while talking to himself. The officer, Officer Butler, got out of the driver’s seat and verbally tried to get the guy to back off. The guy aggressively continued his path until he reached the officer and got so close the officer pushed him away and made space between them. Officer Butler, although ready to protect himself, was successful in talking him down and calming the situation without any additional physical force. The male subject was taken to the psychiatric unit at a local hospital a short time later. Keep in mind, along with this unpredictable and volatile person, the officer also had to be aware of the whereabouts of the driver or passengers of the car he had stopped.

> An officer was flagged down by a female claiming her purse was stolen and the suspect ran off. Officers found him and observed him throw the purse over the fenced in dumpster area at a nearby convenience store. The male was arrested and it was determined that all of the contents of the purse were intact. The male, who she knew and had gotten into an argument with just prior, was arrested and charged.

> Party fouls: multiple mistakes were made by those who partied too hard or too foolishly. From something so simple as walking down the street drinking a beer (we are not New Orleans and have NEVER allowed this) to passing out in a stranger’s living room, to waking up not knowing how your face got beat up, people put themselves in some bad positions. As the weather gets warmer, we’re hoping for good judgment to prevail. Fingers crossed!

Monday is coming to a close. We think Mondays should be optional. May every day this week get better and better for you!

FUN FACT FRIDAY

In continuation of honoring the history of African Americans in law enforcement, today we honor one of our own.

Dwight “Bucky” Johnson was hired as a full-time police officer in 1975. Throughout his career with OPD, he worked as a patrol officer and a detective until his retirement in 1996.

During the 1997-98 school year, the Talawanda Board of Education and the City of Oxford joined together to support the establishment of a school resource officer program. While police officers had spent time at the high school and the middle school as part of the department's Community Oriented Policing Services (C.O.P.S.) initiative, this was the first school year that an officer was assigned specifically to this task. Bucky was rehired as a part-time police officer to become the first School Resource Officer (SRO) at the Talawanda Middle School (TMS). In addition to his SRO responsibilities at TMS, Bucky also spent time in the elementary schools working with staff and students, until he separated from OPD for the last time in 2012.

SRO Bucky Johnson had a positive impact on students, mentoring them and educating them on youth-related issues, all the while creating a safer environment for both students and staff, and it is for this reason we celebrate his achievements in policing as well as his contributions to our community.

We recently received the military items of World War II veteran Hamilton S. Cole, a combat medic assigned to Cannon Company, 145th Infantry, 37th Infantry Division. Cole was decorated with the Silver Star and Bronze Star Medals during the Luzon Campaign in 1945.

The items included Cole's uniform, decorations and medical equipment as well as letters written to his mother during the war. The collection was donated by Cole's family after his death in December 2017 and was made upon the recommendation of the 37th DVA.

The 37th Infantry Division's lineage is carried on today by the 37th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.

Thank you for posting this. My relative served in F. Co. of the 145th IR during the war. It’s great to see that this grouping is in such exceptional condition and will be taken care of.

Awesome, i hope it gets displayed somewhere and not locked in another closet...

Remarkable...

Great job Josh!
