Tallahassee Police Department News

Happy Friday Trackers, Furry high five to all of our great Veterans, especially those who now choose to serve our great city. At about 9:00 last night, officers were called to an apartment complex due to a fella pointing a gun at a woman. When officers arrived, the fella was still there and standing in front of a building, presumably holding a sign reading, "He ran that way" in hopes of not getting caught. The fella reportedly started hollering at officers. This is most certainly going to bring unwanted attention to yourself when you have just committed a violent felony. Officers extended an offer to the male to surrender peacefully. The fella declined. The officers then linked arms and shouted back, "Red Rover, Red Rover, send the bad guy right over!" The bad guy, being caught up in the glee of his favorite childhood game sprinted toward the officers. Just kidding, he rant the other way and the chase was on. Members of the Florida Highway Patrol overheard the chase and joined team Good Guy in the spontaneous game of hide and seek. The bad guy found a hiding spot and the search began. FHP Troppers found the bad guy hiding behind a building nearby and officers found the bad guy's gun, which he decided would be a good idea to hide in some bushes. Great teamwork to find the bad guy, but more importantly to find the gun which could have been found by the many children who play in the area. In the weeeeee hours of the morning, an officer was making sure folks were obeying the rules of the road and noticed a vehicle fail stop at a red light. The officer stopped the vehicle and introduced himself. This turned out to be a tad more than a traffic infraction; it was more of a buffet of criminal activity on wheels. There were four people in the vehicle. Pop quiz! What dishes were served at this buffet of criminal activity? (circle all that apply) A: Warrants B: Drug Paraphernalia C: A Stolen Vehicle D: A Stolen Tag E: An original Nintendo game console with Mike Tyson's Punchout stuck inside If you guessed A-D, you are the big winner! Go find your old Nintendo and try to finally beat Mike Tyson! Keep your nose to the ground and your tails waggin' Copper

Great job Lieutenant Di-Gonzalez! Keep #makingadifference & helping our citizens. #TPDTraditionOfService Representative Loranne Ausley Files Legislation to Aid Law Enforcement during Interactions with Hearing Impaired Drivers Tallahassee, FL – Representative Loranne Ausley (D-Tallahassee) has filed HB 135 in order to aid law enforcement during their interactions with hearing impaired drivers. The proposed legislation would allow drivers to voluntarily indicate on their vehicle tag application that they are hearing impaired. The legislation also requires this information to be included in the Florida Crime Information Center (FCIC) and the Driver and Vehicle Information Database (DAVID), so that law enforcement officers will be aware of a driver’s condition after running his or her tag during a traffic stop. Representative Ausley filed the bill in response to the death of a hearing impaired driver in South Carolina in 2016. “One of my constituents, a TPD officer, brought this situation to my attention out of concern for his hearing impaired son,” declared Representative Loranne Ausley. “Eliminating potential confusion during a traffic stop helps protect both the officer and the driver. This is about providing law enforcement officers the tools they need to protect all Floridians safely.” Senator Darryl Rouson (D-St. Petersburg) will be carrying companion legislation, SB 290, in the Senate.

Don’t forget the road closures in town this weekend for our Veterans Day events. #HappyVeteransDay #ThankYou

Good Afternoon Trackers, It's “Wear Out Your Welcome Wednesday”. Officers were called to a local store to have a talkin' to with a fella because the store owners didn’t want him to come back due to his shenanigous behavior. The fella agreed to leave and officers went about their business. A couple of hours later, officers were called back because the fella did his best ‘boomerang’ impression and was right back at the store. This particular boomerang also steals beer. When officers arrived, the sticky fingered fella was downing his unlawfully acquired bottle of hops. The officers let the fella know he was the big winner of a one way trip to the Leon County Detention Facility with complimentary booking photos for theft and trespassing.
