Update!!!!!!!!!! LOVE BIRDS BACK TOGETHER! "Wednesday afternoon a friend tagged me to Arvada Police Department's Facebook page and there was a post with pics of Tiki on it! We couldn't believe she'd survived 3 days of high heat, predators, and a decent wind storm. A good Samaritan found her in a pot of flowers at a local garden center, Arvada animal management came to help her out, and long story short she is home with us again, cuddled up with her bird-hubby, pigging out on bird seed, and downright exhausted from her adventure! Thank you to everyone involved in Tiki's rescue and care. Our family is thrilled to have her back with us, and seeing Tiki and Yoshi so happily reunited melts our hearts"! Thank you also to Suzanne and Lisa, employee and manager and Marlara Gardens 7190 Kipling St. Who found the bird in their perennial green house yesterday. They put the bird into a box and called Arvada Animal Management. AMO Scofield, and her vast knowledge from the Veterinary world, knew who to call and the best way to find the owner. She also transported the bird to the vet to be check out.

Arvada Weekend Round Up!

This little Owl was seen at the wildlife area near 80th Ave and Kipling St. This is a great reminder to give wild animals Room To Fly! The expression here says “I got this”. To disturb any of Colorado’s wildlife can lead to your injury or their death or both! (Picture taken by Arvada Animal Management)

Nice work Arvada Police runners for the Colorado Special Olympics Torch Run. Great day and wonderful weather for the run to the State Capitol from north Arvada.

Arvada Police Department 2018 Awards Ceremony Arvada, CO May 18th, 2018 On Friday May 18, the Arvada Police Department held its annual departmental awards ceremony at the Arvada Center to honor its members and their service to the community. The Awards included: Distinguished Service Medal Officer Dustin LeDoux, Officer Shanell Glynn, Officer Brandon Valdez, Sgt. Greg Luby Life Saving Award Sgt. Amity Losey, Officer Ben Marshall, Officer Nevada Putnam Arvada Police Department Commendation Officer Dustin LeDoux, Officer Derek Berns and K9 Jax. Officer Ryan McCasky, Officer Tyler Jenkins, Amy Storrs, Gabe Steele Tracy Suzuki Cooley Arvada Police Department Citation Darlene Ford, Colorado Department of Corrections Deanna Nathan, Colorado Department of Corrections Officer Marcus Toomey, Colorado Department of Corrections Officer Roman Sanchez, Thornton Police Department Two of Arvada’s finest, Officer Brandon Valdez and Officer Dustin LeDoux, were honored this year for recognizing potential lethal force situations and reacting to stop the suspects. Officer Valdez (left) and other officers were arresting one suspect when a second suspect approached. Believing that this second suspect was reaching for a gun, Officer Valdez grabbed the suspect and took him to the ground. This suspect was found in possession of 9mm handgun. Officer LeDoux (right) located a suspect who had robbed a gas station using a large kitchen knife. As Officer LeDoux approached, the suspect began reaching into a bag; Officer LeDoux, believing the suspect was reaching for the knife, tackled the suspect and placed him into custody. The suspect later admitted to wanting to pull out the knife so officers would shoot him. In both cases the Officers were moments away from having to use deadly force when training and fast action saved the suspects’ lives.

In Arvada today, we honored our two fallen Officers – W. Michael Northey and Robert Beghtol – • Officer Mike Northey, who joined the Arvada Police Department on February 20, 1978 and was tragically struck and killed by a vehicle during a traffic stop. End of Watch on August 11, 1979 • Patrolman Beghtol drowned while conducting an underwater scuba exercise with other members of the agency's scuba team. They were diving in a deep gravel pit when Patrolman Beghtol incurred cramps due to the cold water. His equipment then became entangled with debris in the bottom of the pit, preventing him from surfacing. End of Watch July 28, 1961

At the Arvada Police Department, a wreath presentation ceremony honoring the memory of two fallen officers, W. Michael Northey and Officer Robert Beghtol, is the key event of National Police Week, an annual tribute honoring officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. This year has been a difficult year for officers in Colorado; our officers will be thinking of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department, Adams County Sheriff’s Department and the El Paso County Sheriff's Department. The strength, courage and dignity these Departments have displayed during such loss truly define bravery!

Arvada Police Officers received tactical gear and were sponsored by Shield 616 today! Thank you Shield 616, Sponsors, Fox 31/ News 2 and everyone who participated. What is Shield 616? Shield616 was formed with the street cop in mind. The goal of Shield616 is two fold: First, we want to equip every officer with necessary advanced active shooter / crowd control gear. Second we want to provide a support group for that officer who will pray for the officer and family on a daily basis and shower the officer with support and encouragement throughout the year. Shield616 was mindful of limited department budgets. Not only will all of the gear be donated but replaced every five years at no cost to any officer or department.
