Kennesaw Police Department News

With school getting out for the summer, vacations coming up and May 25 is National Missing Children’s Day, we would like to share these tips that were recently posted online and remind everyone to please talk to your children about the possible dangers from strangers.

A YEAR AGO...the Kennesaw Police Department and the Kennesaw community said our last farewell to a faithful and fearless warrior, K9 Bady. For those who do did not know K9 Bady or his time with us; "K9 Bady was born 5/1/2005 in Slovakia. Imported by and purchased from Shallow Creek Kennels in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania, K9 Bady was an active Police Canine with the City of Kennesaw from Oct 2006 til April 2013. I did not keep a scoreboard of his accomplishments in apprehensions, tracks, and narcotic finds, etc, because his impact on our community as an ambassador for our department is immeasurable. He was an impressive Canine and had a great career .. and I will miss him," wrote K9 Handler Officer Bud Morton- friend, partner, and family member. K9 Bady, retired from working service from Police Department in 2013. Yesterday was his last day with us. It was painful to watch a once strong warrior of a canine be reduced by time to a very weak and frail shell of his former self. K9 Bady didn't know he was old, but Officer Morton knew he was in constant pain. "His health has deteriorated so badly this week that I have decided the most humane thing I can do for him is to end any further suffering." K9 Bady loved riding in his patrol car so Officer Morton brought him in to have one last day of being a ‘Police Dog’. K9 Bady took his last ride on May 18, 2017 at 1900 hours, accompanied by all his friends and loved ones. May you always Rest In Peace, K9 Bady 💙

We hope everyone was able to steer clear of the accident this morning on the interstate.... 😜😂

“Fly the Blue” As of today a total of 53 Officers from all over the United States have paid the ultimate sacrifice while protecting the communities they served. This week is National Police Week, please take a moment as departments from all over, honor our brothers and sisters that made the choice to serve at the cost of their own lives. Blue ribbons, symbolic of that “thin blue line”, displayed during National Police Week as a symbol of honor and respect for those who serve and who have sacrificed their lives. Citizens are asked to tie blue ribbons onto their car antennas, side mirrors or on the inside of the rear window during National Police Week to show their support for law enforcement officers and the sacrifices made by law enforcement families nationwide.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!! And yes- this includes all the fur mommies, too 😊🐶💛🐱💐

Words Of Code Enforcement Did you know that it’s a city ordinance violation if you let your grass and / or the weeds to grow over 12 inches? Did you know that all that debris piled under the back porch, next to the house or in the yard is also an ordinance violation? Those violations are covered under Sec. 62-6. - Cleanliness of premises of the City Ordinances, . When the weather gets warmer, the days longer and the humidity higher……means the mosquitoes and other pests are going to get worse!!

National Police Week begins this coming Sunday In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 designating May 15 as Peace Officers' Memorial Day, and the week in which May 15 falls as National Police Week.

This morning we were honored to meet up with the Honor Roll bike riders as they made their way thru Georgia honoring the Officers that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. We met them at Officer Tara Drummond's Memorial Park on the Silver Comet trail, located at 820 Sea Board Dr. in Dallas, where a wreath ceremony took place honoring and remembering Officer Drummond. The Honor Roll Bike Team started their journey in Birmingham, Alabama on Sunday and will continue their trek till they reach Washington D.C. for National Police Week, the week of May 15th.

Thank you so much, Acopia Home Loans! We are so grateful for your support. Out of the goodness of their hearts- Shane Spink, Heather Wilson, and Debbie Landry (Atlanta Communities Real Estate Brokerage) cooked out for us today and made our girdles just a little tighter 😉 We are thankful for ALL of you and your continued support. You have no idea how much the communities’ support (or lack of in some instances) impact their agencies. So, from the bottom of our 💙, thank you so much for making us feel loved and appreciated!

This weekend, our officers and our families kicked off the CHP City Challenge at Kennesaw Mountain! This was a family and pet-friendly event that saw us run, walk, bike, or crawl (no shame- we’re still moving!) all the way to the top. There’s a trophy, BBQ feast, and most importantly…bragging rights for the winning agency! #TeamKennesaw (Kennesaw Police Department and 911 Dispatch) is in a friendly competition against agencies from Suwanee, Johns Creek, Decatur, Acworth, Alpharetta, Americus, and Smyrna for logging in the most steps from now until May 19th. We’re taking the stairs instead of the elevators, skipping the close parking and intentionally parking further away, and for those chained to their offices- we are getting up and moving on the hour every hour! While your steps may not count for our numbers, we invite you to take the challenge and see how many steps you can get in daily! #kennesawstrong

Another successful Rx Drug Take Back event. 19 boxes of meds (200 lbs +) were collected. Thank You to everyone who stopped by to drop off meds for disposal!

On Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Kennesaw Police department and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 15th opportunity in 7 years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the CVS Pharmacy Jiles Rd @ Cobb Pkwy. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That's dangerous and often tragic! Please take the opportunity to safely dispose of any unwanted Rx medications by stopping the CVS Pharmacy Jiles Rd @ Cobb Pkwy on Saturday Apr. 28th 10am-2pm. KPD officers will be on site to collect medication as part of the DEA National Rx Take Back Day.
