Supporting Young Entrepreneurs
I missed Reece’s lemonade, but apparently several cops picked the word up from some of their street connections and discovered what everyone was raving about. With Reece, in the photo on the right, are Bangor Police Department Detectives Kyle Pelkey, and Gary Decker. I am hopeful they tipped her well, as I know that both […]

The Social Media Effect
For many of us in public safety, the advent of social media has been a really great way to engage the communities we serve. It aids in government transparency, connects us with community and helps us message those things that folks should or need to know about their community like crime trends, wanted/missing persons and […]

Proactive Work With At-Risk Teens Yields Positive Results
Most of what the public sees our officers doing is reactive: showing up after something bad already has happened. There is a lot of proactive work going on behind the scenes, however, and one of those initiatives starts today. Today is the first day of this summer’s Teens in Transition program, a partnership that aims […]

Police Officer Hiring Processes
Earlier this month, some email threads were going around the community about the Roseville Police Department’s police officer staffing. I addressed it in an email to the City Council and now want to elaborate on that a bit. First, a history lesson may help. Since at least the 1980s, by state statue Roseville was authorized […]

Congratulating Co-Workers
We, the employees of the Bangor Police Department, would like to take this opportunity to congratulate a few of our co-workers for doing good things and being noticed. Nope, none of them are cops, but they are the people who we work and interact with on a daily basis; they make Bangor a great place […]

Surprise! Boy Was It . . .
So today, I had an honoring ceremony to attend for an amazing friend of mine, Bill Denton. I picked my wife up from her work and we drove to the Aransas Pass Civic Center. We walked in the back door and as is my normal fashion, I announced, “All rise!” For some reason, I always […]

Unfortunately, despite all of these efforts, we still are not […]
