Another #throwbackthursday to when Detective Rosales was honored for his hard work with the gang task force! "Detective Richard “Richie” Rosales began working for Show Low Police Department on August 10th, 2012. For the first three years he excelled as an officer, showing his passion and dedication to the job. He was consistently the highest, pro-active officer in the Patrol Division. In October, 2015, Officer Rosales tested for the position of GIITEM (Gang & Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission) Detective. This position is part of a multi-agency task force headed up by the Arizona Department of Public Safety. Officer Rosales was selected, and approached the new position with his characteristic focus and determination. Everyone he has worked with in the State Task Force has commented on how hard he works. Several have stated “He never slows down!” During Detective Rosales’ time at GIITEM he’s been making gang related arrests rivaling those in the valley’s metro area. It’s no surprise to anyone that knows him that Richie was recognized as the 2017 Department of Public Safety’s (DPS) GIITEM Detective of the Year. He also received the following awards at the DPS annual banquet on April the 11th, 2018: -Criminal Investigations, Northern Investigations Bureau Detective of the Year. -Northeast District Detective of the Year -Detective Rosales’ squad was also recognized as the Northeast District Squad of the Year Our congratulations go to Detective Rosales for a job well done and an award well deserved!"

Two weeks ago, we said goodbye to K9 Officer Ruger. Ruger gave many years of service to SLPD before health issues led to his retirement. Thankfully, Ruger was able to spend his retirement with his handler, Officer Huser. Thank you Ruger for all you did to make our community safer, you will be missed. @ Show Low, Arizona

Screenshots of a facebook post from "Ray Andres" making an implied threat against "SHS" have been getting shared across the country, from South Carolina all the way to Guam. If you come across this post, please know it is already being investigated, and at this time there is no reason to believe the post is related to any of our local schools. If any cause for concern is discovered, it will be shared immediately.

The Family Advocacy Center is a tremendous resource to families throughout the county, it is great to see them getting this kind of support!


#wantedwednesday Charles "Jake" Carmichael, 19 years old, is wanted for an outstanding warrant, and for questioning in another case unrelated to the warrant. If you have information about where Jake may be, please contact our dispatch at (928) 537-4365.

If you have loved ones who don't use social media, please talk to them about this - they probably need this information more than anyone else! The APS phone scam is making the rounds again. We've had multiple reports from citizens saying someone claiming to represent APS called and threatened to turn off their power unless they call another number to make a payment. THIS IS NOT HOW APS WORKS. Only the numbers on the APS website and your APS bills are valid numbers - do NOT call any other numbers for APS issues, or give any information to someone calling you. There is often very little we can do to help someone who falls for this scam, so prevention is extra important!

Feb 5-9, expect delays if you are heading east on US 60 or coming to Show Low from "the Y."

Edit 2/26/18 - Manuel was located, thank you to all who shared! --------------------------- If you have any information about Manuel's location, contact SLPD at (928) 537-4365, and reference report number 18-010053.

We first shared this back in October... Maybe by the end of the week you can finally put this information to use!
