This was an eventful two weeks for the Investigative Services Division detectives, as two separate murder trials took place. In the first case, Det. Brendan Arlington's 2015 home invasion shooting death of victim McKinley Torbitt, Jr. on Jefferson Ave resulted in Life Sentences without Parole for suspects Shaquille Felder and Leonard Little. In another courtroom, Jared Compton received a Life Sentence for the 2016 First Degree Murder of Quade Gifford on Rosery Road. Most of ISD testified in one trial or both. Based upon the detectives' good work, the State Attorney's Office was able to make solid arguments and secure the guilty verdicts.

In 1983, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25th as National Missing Children’s Day. Missing Children’s Day is dedicated to encouraging parents, guardians, caregivers, and others concerned with the well-being of children to make child safety a priority. It serves as a reminder to continue our efforts to reunite missing children with their families and an occasion to honor those dedicated to this noble cause.

Here are some photos from Relay for Life over the weekend. Team Largo finished in the top 10 teams for fundraising. Thank you to all who donated through LPD! A total of $130,931.09 has been raised for the Greater Pinellas Relay in the fight against cancer. Chief Undestad was briefly jailed, under a warrant from his sister, but his boys bailed him out--all funds went to the charity. See you next year!

Every May, the Administration on Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living, leads our nation's observance of Older American's Month. The 2018 theme, Engage at Every Age, emphasizes that you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It also celebrates the many ways in which older adults make a difference in our communities. Participating in activities that promote mental and physical wellness, offering your wisdom and experience to the next generation - those are just a few examples of what being engaged can mean. No matter where you are in your life, there is no better time than now to start. We hope you will join in and Engage at Every Age! #OAM18!

The K9 Murphy rock that was placed in McGough Park is gone, but no one has contacted us to claim their prize! Let us know if you have it. Cross this park off your list. Three more K9 rocks and nine other LPD rocks are still out there in City of Largo parks. (Not a photo of the Murph Man).
