What a great Event in Kenneth City –-- the KCPD's third Casting with a Cop was held yesterday morning, 2/17/18 on the shores of Lake Paul. Thanks to all that came out for a Saturday morning fishing lesson alongside their local Kenneth City Police Officers. Conditions were fine, there were hotdogs for lunch, and we all made new friends and learned how to fish! Warm thank yous go out to our biggest helpers: Kenneth City resident Dick Laneau provided poles, Morphmart reptiles shop in Kenneth City donated stickers and cricket bait, our local Winn-Dixie donated water bottles, and Ofc Beltran's Dad, Elvis Barrero, was kind enough to be the head chef of the Event and cooked the hot dogs for the kids. There was also a raffle and a fishing pole give-away and two kids won fishing poles to practice their new skills (see photo). Chief Riley, Sgt Matson, CP Officer Beltran Hernandez (among others) were all there to share this experience with the kids and their parents and caregivers. A great time was had by all. #communitypolicing #fishinglesson #learntofish #familyFriendly #kidFriendly #gonefishing #optoutside

Announcing the Kenneth City Police Department’s Officer of the Year: Officer Josue Beltran Hernandez. On Tuesday, February 13th, at the Town Council meeting, Chief Kevin Riley named Ofc Beltran Hernandez as our 2018 Officer of the Year! Officer Beltran is recognized for his enthusiasm for working the streets and assisting our citizens. He continues to develop into an officer who demonstrates good judgement, leadership, and the willingness to do more. This leadership attitude was key in his selection to our Community Policing unit. Ofc Beltran is always willing to help others and can be counted on to complete any task assigned, and he continues to work a flexible schedule, meeting the Agency's needs. Since his assignment to community policing, he has embraced the expectations set by the Agency and the public. And he is from our very own Town of Kenneth City! Ofc Beltran, we are lucky to have you and we wish you warm congratulations on receiving the honor of being named Kenneth City Police Department’s Officer of the Year – 2018. We hope this day will be looked back on as a milestone in a significant career in public service. There will be a celebration dinner on February 24th at which all County Agencies and their best and brightest will gather called Law & Order Night, hosted by Elks Lodge #1224. At this dinner, Ofc Beltran will be officially recognized by his peers in Law Enforcement. #OfficeroftheYear #communitypolicing At the Council Meeting on February 13, 2018, Chief Riley also recognized Cpl Jamison Raley and Ofc Andy Delay with Life Saving awards for taking their training and putting it into action within our community. On June 15th, 2017, Cpl Raley and Ofc DeLay responded to a call from an apartment complex reporting a patient who was in cardiac arrest due to a possible overdose. The officers arrived on scene and found a 20 year old female patient without a pulse, unresponsive, and blue in color. Cpl. Raley and Ofc. Delay quickly recalled their training and sprang into action. While waiting for the arrival of fire rescue, both officers administered C.P.R. and within minutes the female regained her color and had a pulse. Fire Rescue arrived on scene and administered Narcan, at which time she started breathing on her own. If it was not for their quick heroic action on that day by our officers the outcome for this young lady could have been much different. It was Chief Riley’s pleasure to recognize Ofc Delay and Cpl Raley for a Team victory. He presented them both with a certificate and an award ribbon in “Life Saving” which will be worn on their uniform.

Our Flag is flying at half-staff outside KCPD today to honor victims of the tragedy at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, following Presidential Proclamation: https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/presidential-proclamation-honoring-victims-tragedy-parkland-florida/ Our flag shall remain at half-mast until the expiration of the President's national directive, at sunset on Monday, February 19th, 2018.

Valentine's Day is a week away, and we've found two ways to show cats that you care: On Feb. 14th, Pinellas County Animal Services is holding a $5 rabies clinic with free microchipping, exclusively for cats. At the PD, we see a lot of stray animals. Microchipping greatly increases the chances of reuniting lost pets with their owners quickly and with minimal fuss. Click on shared post below for details- the microchip is free. If you'd like a way to help out the County shelter, here's a way to do it by having your customer loyalty pay dividends: join the Fresh Step® Paw Points® program and *** Enter the Pinellas County Animal Services code SHELTERBONUS1167 *** Follow the instructions on this link and donate your points to the County's stray cats when you buy your cat litter: https://www.freshstep.com/paw-points/#rAYIqIeskU44IpGF.99 #adopt #microchip #communitypolicing

Carol Westgate stopped by the PD today with enough coffee cakes to feed the entire force to show her appreciation for Officer Morgan's hard work in recovering $50,000.00 which she almost lost through fraud. We are proud to have been of service to Ms Westgate and can't be more pleased with the outcome. Readers, please follow Ms Westgate's example: talk to someone before you give up money or information. Talk to a police officer or someone that you trust. Remember: fraud is a preventable crime IF you know what to look for. As the Federal Trade Commission states: "Scammers want you to make decisions in a hurry. Slow down, check out the story, search online – or just tell a friend. We find that people who talk to someone – anyone – are much less likely to fall for a scam." Residents -- know that you can call us if you are considering responding to an offer or have received a call, email or letter offering you money or asking for information. We will gladly go over the offer with you and determine whether it is legit before you respond. Our 24 hour dispatch line is: 727-582-6200 #crimeprevention #communitypolicing
