Castle Rock Police Department News

Thank you for the great turnout yesterday at the Prescription Drug Take Back event. A staggering 334 pounds of prescription drugs were collected between both locations in Castle Rock. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and keep these pills out of the wrong hands. As a reminder, the Police Department has a permanent prescription drug drop bin in our lobby. It is available Mon-Fri 8-5 when the Town is open for business.

Yesterday, Castle Rock Police Officer Tom O’Donnell and Castle Rock Fire Battalion Chief Eric Morganthaler were presented with certificates of commendation from the American Legion for their exceptional service to the community. Please join us in congratulating each of them for this recognition. We are very proud of both of you.

Don’t forget to come see us at either the Police Department or King Soopers Promenade for the Prescription Drug Take Back event. We are at both locations until 2 p.m.

On Saturday, October 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Castle Rock Police, in partnership with the U. S. Drug Enforcement Administration, will give the Castle Rock community the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Police Department at 100 Perry Street or King Soopers at 5544 Promenade Parkway. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. In addition to the prescription drug takeback, Kings Soopers is joining in the efforts by adding a sharps collection bin at the King Soopers location. Last spring Americans turned in nearly 475 tons (949,046 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,700 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 15 previous Take Back events, almost 10 million pounds or nearly 5,000 tons of pills have been taken in. Read the full news release at http://crgov.com/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1502

Increase your personal safety through situational awareness. Simply put, situational awareness is paying attention to what’s going on around you, understanding how it can affect you, and then using that information to make decisions and take action if needed. Maintaining situational awareness is an ongoing process. As you walk down the street, your environment constantly changes; you pass different people, different doorways, cross streets, etc. There are some common factors that cause awareness problems for many people. The most common things that reduce situational Awareness are distractions. • Talking or texting on a smart phone • Walking around listening to music on ear phones • Daydreaming Maintaining good awareness of your surroundings helps you stay safe. A lack of situational awareness affects your personal safety. Be Aware and be safe.

Did you know October is National Crime Prevention month? Every Friday in October, you can learn what measures you can take to prevent crime. Here’s your first tip. Lighting is an important aspect of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), with the goal of “see and be seen”. A person is less likely to commit a crime if they think that someone will see them do it. Energy-efficient lighting like LED and CFL bulbs are easier on your wallet and will help you keep your home or business safe.

Americans at all income levels have experienced the challenges of rebuilding their lives after a disaster or other emergency. Consider saving money in an emergency savings account that could be used in any crisis. Keep a small amount of cash at home in a safe place. It is important to have small bills on hand because ATM’s and credit cards may not work during a disaster when you need to purchase necessary supplies, fuel, or food. Also, remember a disaster can disrupt mail service for days or weeks. If you depend on Social Security or other regular benefits, switching to electronic payments is a simple, significant way to protect yourself financially before disaster strikes. For more information about being financially prepared, check out these resources: https://www.ready.gov/financial-preparedness.

Today at approximately 1:35 pm, Castle Rock Police responded to the Castle Rock Adventist Hospital Center for the report of an active shooter inside the hospital. Two Castle Rock Police officers were at the hospital on an unrelated incident. While there, the officers were contacted by hospital staff members and advised of the situation. The officers immediately relayed the information to responding units and proceeded to make their way to the location of the reported shooter. After speaking to the witness who reported the incident, officers were able to quickly contact the subject, determine he was not armed and that there was no danger to the community. While this incident likely caused alarm to those in the area of the hospital or who may have learned of the incident, we are pleased with the response from all involved. As always, we appreciate the support of this amazing community and with your partnership in keeping it safe.
