Community Gathers to Celebrate Grand Opening of New Police Station Members of the Peoria community, including Councilmembers and Peoria Police Department - Arizona officers gathered to celebrate the opening of the city’s newest police station. The state of the art, 17,000 square foot building features a dedicated training room, prisoner processing area, K-9 training area, modern workout facility and multiple officer workstations. The innovative design combined with many of its unique and sustainable features resulted in the building being the most recent of Peoria’s municipal buildings to receive the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. The building is located at 23100B North Lake Pleasant Parkway and will function as the home base for the officers who serve the residents in the northern part of the city. Mayor Cathy Carlat spoke at the event and shared her excitement of the new facility saying, “With this expanded facility, designed to enable public safety growth as our population grows, Peoria citizens can rest assured that they will continue to receive exceptional service from the men and women of the Peoria Police Department.” In his remarks, Chief of Police Roy Minter thanked the Mayor and Council for their support in making the substation a reality, adding, “This new facility will allow us to strengthen our commitment of building and sustaining collaborative partnerships with our community.” Approximately 100 members of the community attended the ribbon cutting ceremony where they were treated to refreshments and guided tours of the building. The design of the building was a result of a partnership between Corgan Associates and MWL Con Consulting. Haydon Building Corp constructed the building with J2 Designs completing the exterior and landscaping. #peoriaaz #peoriapoliceaz

Peoria Police Seek Information on Arson and Drive by Shooting Peoria Police Department - Arizona seek the public’s help with any information regarding two separate incidents at the same residence in the 7800 block of West Beaubien Drive. The first incident was an arson of a vehicle parked in the driveway of the residence on October 20. The second incident was a drive by shooting where a subject shot three rounds at the house on October 26. These incidents appear to be related and limited to this single residence. We are seeking to identify a male subject in surveillance video who is seen setting fire to a vehicle parked in a driveway in the 7800 block of West Beaubien Drive on October 20, 2017 at approximately 2:20 AM. The suspect is seen walking up a neighboring driveway carrying what appears to be a bottle in his hand. He walks into the victim’s driveway near a white truck that is parked, and is seen near the vehicle for several minutes. At approximately 2:25:40 on the video, you can see a fire lit underneath the vehicle and the power shut off to the house. The suspect and an additional unknown individual run from the scene toward a nearby wash in the area. The truck sustained significant damage from the fire. The suspect appears to be a white male, approximately 20-25 years old, medium height and medium build. He had very short hair, glasses and facial hair. He was wearing a “Famous”” brand shirt with the word “Family” on it, shorts and athletic shoes. The second incident occurred on October 26 at approximately 6:14 PM and was captured on surveillance video. The homeowner and his adult son were outside of the home working on an exterior light when they heard a dirt bike approaching from the south on the dirt road on the east side of their home. At approximately 6:14 PM three shots were fired from the dirt road toward the victim’s residence, striking the residence three times. The dirt bike is then seen speeding off northbound on the dirt road. At the time of the shooting, the home was occupied by several individuals including a small child. Nobody was hit by the shots and nobody was injured. Peoria officers were in the area and an officer attempted to stop the dirt bike but the driver fled into an area that patrol vehicles were unable to get to. The suspect in this incident is described as a white male wearing a flannel shirt, black shorts and tennis shoes. The dirt bike is described as a 4-stroke red in color dirt bike, possibly a Honda 450. These incidents are obviously extremely concerning. We believe that this specific residence is the target and we believe these two incidents may be related. Anyone who has any information about these incidents or recognizes the individual in this video is encouraged to contact the Peoria Police Department at 623-773-8311 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS. #peoriaaz #peoriapoliceaz

On Saturday, October 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Peoria Police Department - Arizona and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 14th opportunity in 7 years 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 Rio Vista Recreation Center at 8866 West Thunderbird Road, Peoria. The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Last April Americans turned in 450 tons (900,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at almost 5,500 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 13 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 8.1 million pounds—more than 4,050 tons—of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the October 28 Take Back Day event, go to www.dea.gov. #peoriaaz #peoriapoliceaz #takebackday
