On Saturday, April 21, 2018, in an effort to protect our community members from Identity Theft AND in celebration of Earth Day, Goodyear Police Department hosted its first FREE Shred-a-Thon Event. Overall, we feel that this turned out to be a very successful event! Thanks to the hard work and organization of the Police Explorers, VIPS, Goodyear Traffic Unit, the Community Services Unit, Police administrative staff and ProShred, we were able to process 376 vehicles over the course of the 4 hour event with an average wait time of 40 minutes per vehicle. In addition to protecting the identity of our Goodyear Residents who chose to participate, we were able to recycle approximately 18,140 pounds of recyclable paper. As a result of everyone's efforts, the following resources have been conserved: 154 trees, 3,447 gallons of oil, 63,490 gallons of water, 43,536 kilowatt hours of energy and 907 cubic yards of landfill space. We also thank the community for participating and bringing along your patience as we worked hard to process every vehicle that attended as quickly as was possible. Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback, we plan to host another event in the fall.

Goodyear Police were honored to participate in the Annual Sky Kids Event again this year. This event took place on Saturday, April 7th at the Goodyear Airport. Goodyear Police supported the mission of Sky Kids, which is to build confidence and self-esteem in children with special needs through the experience of flight. Goodyear Officers participated with police vehicle displays, including: an armored vehicle, motorcycle and the Camaro.

The Goodyear Police Explorers completed their annual Tempe Police Explorers Challenge. This year Goodyear Explorers competed against approximately 10 other Explorer posts, some of which were from out of state. There were two days of challenges that ranged from simulated shooting and moving to cover, a medical challenge where they treated a victim, a fingerprint challenge, a mock downtown drill which included bicycle patrol and a pat-down for weapons drill. In addition, there was a series of physical strength and speed events and a driving track in a police car for those of driving age. This was an amazing two-day challenge. Goodyear Police Explorers earned second place in two of the four team events for the competition. The first consisted of a medical “officer down” scenario where they were required to enter an active crime scene and locate the downed officer. They placed tourniquets on gunshot wounds and then extracted the officer out of the area, continuing medical aid and setting up a crime scene. The second event in which they earned second place in overall out of the entire competition consisted of processing a motor vehicle that had been burglarized. They investigated the scene, dusted the vehicle for latent prints and then lifted those prints. Goodyear Explorers demonstrated their amazing ability to work as a team and more importantly they had FUN! Thanks to the Department for allowing the Explorers the opportunity to participate and thanks to Officer Scheckel, Officer Washington, Officer Cummings and Volunteer in Police Services, Judy Blecha who devoted countless hours to train Goodyear Explorers and help on-site with the competition, so that they could excel in this challenge!

It's National Public Safety Telecommunicators' Week! Each year, since 1991, the second week of April has been dedicated as a time to appreciate those who serve the community as Public Safety Telecommunicators. "National Public-Safety Telecommunications Week,” which falls on April 8-14 this year, is a time to recognize those hardworking, behind the scenes individuals who answer emergency calls and dispatch those calls to first responders. Congress initially set this week aside in 1991 and it has been recognized ever since. The name has evolved over the years, but the premise is the same, honoring those heroes who answer the call when others are in need.

Goodyear Police are honored to work alongside our school partners to increase school safety and bring awareness to educators on issues such as school threats, drugs, gangs, bullying, and sexting, etc...

On Monday, Feb. 26, 2018, a perceived threat was reported to Goodyear Police Department by Estrella Mountain Elementary School. After further investigation it was determined to be a non-credible threat. What was initially reported as a “hit list,” turned out to be a list of students the female subject didn’t like, not a “hit list.” No active threats to the school or students were substantiated. Additionally, a 14 year old boy, who was initially thought to be involved with the alleged list of students, but cleared, was found in possession of a small dagger-type knife in his backpack. The student reported it was for protection due the recent school shootings reported in the media, and as a result, he was afraid. He was referred to the juvenile court for the following charge: misconduct involving weapons ARS 13-3102.A.12. Both students are subject to additional school discipline, at the discretion of the school.

Goodyear Police are thankful for our school partners; we are working together to keep our school children, teachers and campuses safe! http://www.fox10phoenix.com/news/arizona-news/cops-on-campus-police-substation-set-up-at-goodyear-elementary-school
