Clearwater Police Department News

Help us find missing and possibly endangered elderly residents Eduardo and Maria DeJesus. Both have dementia and are missing from the area of 2155 Montclair Road from Brookdale at Beckett Lake. They signed out at 8 p.m. Wednesday and said they would be back at 9 but have not returned. He is 82 and was wearing jeans and a white and green shirt and usually wears a gray Navy veteran hat. She is 77 and was wearing black pants and a black and white striped shirt and usually wears a white hat and carries a large walking stick. They may be in a white Nissan Sentra and might be trying to go to the Weeki Wachee area. Call 727-562-4242 if you have seen them.

Our officers took the handoff of the Special Olympics torch from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office early this afternoon and made our way to Paul B. Stephens Exceptional School. Once there, officers interacted with students who were outside to welcome the torch.

CPD will be putting on our running shoes at about 12:45 this afternoon just north of Drew Street on McMullen Booth Road. It's the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run For Special Olympics, departing from Del Oro Park and bound for Paul B. Stephens Exceptional School. Wave to us, honk at us -- just be sure to drive safely as you pass us or go the other way. We can't wait to bring the torch to the awesome students at Paul B. Stephens!

It's that time of year again! CPD, along with Feeding Tampa Bay and 10News WTSP and many other community partners, are involved in the annual #CerealforSummer drive. We will be collecting cereal and other breakfast-type foods that will help feed children this summer who won't be able to enjoy a free breakfast at school. The drive began this week and continues through May 10. You can drop off your cereal here at the police station at 645 Pierce St. Publix frequently offers a different cereal or two as BOGO each week. Let's see how much we can collect this year to help feed children!

Help us nab the suitcase bandits! Our detectives need your help identifying these two suspects who stole two DKNY carry-on suitcases last month at Macy's at Westfield Countryside Mall. If you recognize them, call us at 727-562-4242 or use the TIP411 system by texting your tip and the keyword CWPD to 847411.

Our honor guard will be participating in today's joint funeral for the two Gilchrist County sheriff's deputies who were killed in the line of duty last week. Our officers have been wearing the mourning strips across their badges as we continue to honor Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey.

We are two days away from this year's Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. Our officers will receive the handoff of the torch at about 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday at Del Oro Park. From there, we will head up McMullen Booth Road and go west on Sunset Point Road, bound for Paul B. Stephens School. That's where we hand off the torch to a student there who then brings it to the rest of the students. If you see us Wednesday along the route, honk or wave -- but please slow down as you make your way around us.

Thank you to everyone who came out in support of Officer Kyle Resler, a CPD veteran of 20 years who retired last week while battling cancer. Our charity softball game was held last weekend at Spectrum Field, and the event raised more than $22,000 for Officer Resler and his family as they continue their fight. To all of those who came out and supported one of our family members, we say a heartfelt thanks.

Join our Solid Waste workers and police officers a week from today (Saturday, April 28) as we offer free shredding services from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Westfield Countryside Mall in the parking lot nearest where L.A. Fitness used to be. Bring us all of your personal documents and we will see that they are shredded on site. That helps you keep from becoming a victim of identity theft. You can also bring prescription drugs to us as well for proper disposal (not shredding, for the record). Best entrance is off Countryside Boulevard. We hope to see you there!

Our officers are mourning the loss of Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey. Killed senselessly in the line of duty. We will never forget their service and sacrifice.

Some of our officers visited the Pier 60 Sugar Sand Festival on Thursday to check out one of the neat sculptures there. It's a Clearwater Police badge made from sand! Master sand sculptors Damon Meri and Dean Arscott created a Clearwater Police badge and a Station 45 fire helmet as part of the attraction, which features "A Celebration of America's Treasures." The festival continues through Sunday. For tickets and more information, visit sugarsandfestival.com

Cash is money in the bank when it comes to catching suspects! Our newest K-9 had his first catch last night, tracking down two vehicle teenage burglary suspects. He and Officer Main tracked for several blocks and over multiple fences before nabbing the two. Great job, Cash and Officer Main!

Expect traffic delays in the area of State Road 580 and Landmark Drive. We're on scene of accident there with injuries. Eastbound lanes of 580 are the most affected.

All in a day's work. Officer Klein changes a tire for a disabled motorist on Belcher Road yesterday as cars are whizzing by. The woman said what he did for her changed the way that she looks at police officers. It's just another way that our officers protect and serve -- many times in ways the public never even sees.

Oh, thank heaven for @7eleven! Owners of #Clearwater stores and a representative from the corporate office dropped by to thank officers for their service. And they might have brought doughnuts! (Not sure why they think we like those kinds of things.) Thank you for your gesture!

Coffee With A Cop is going on until 10:30 today at the McDonald's at 1500 S. Belcher Road. Come enjoy a free cup of coffee and some sweet treats and have a chat with one of our police officers. Thank you to McDonald's for being the sponsor of this great community outreach event.

Join us Tuesday morning from 9 to 10:30 at the McDonald's (1500 S. Belcher Road) as we have Coffee With A Cop. It's a great community outreach tool that our friends from McDonald's sponsor for us. Do you have questions or concerns about public safety issues in your community? Our officers will be there to try to assist. And you can also grab a free cup of coffee as well. We hope to see you there!

Here are some more photos from our annual charity softball game on Saturday at Spectrum Field. A special thanks to Largo Police for being a part of this benefit for Officer Resler, who is battling cancer. Chief Slaughter honored Officer Resler for his 20 years of service to the department and the city. The veteran officer -- whom many of his best friends know as "Skeeter" -- was able to retire. Thank you to everyone who came out to support Officer Resler!

Headed to #ClearwaterBeach today to enjoy the sunshine? It's more than a tad windy, creating rough surf conditions and rip currents. Not a good day for swimming or boating. If you choose to go into the water, swim only where city lifeguards can keep an eye on you. @NWSTampaBay

All lanes of Memorial Causeway have reopened.

#Clearwater #traffic alert: westbound lanes of Memorial Causeway are temporarily closed until a downed palm tree can be removed. High winds felled the tree.

The view from #ClearwaterBeach -- storms looming offshore, some packing wind gusts of more than 50 mph, per @NWSTampaBay. Not a good time to be on beach or in water as the squall line nears. What does the sky look like where you are? Share your photos with us here.

Per @NWSTampaBay radar, this is what we're in store for this afternoon. Keep an eye to the sky and watch for weather alerts. A tornado watch is in effect for our area. That means only conditions are conducive for possible formation, not that anything has been spotted.
