The Roswell Police Department partnered with Target to host our annual “Heroes and Helpers” event. Our City employees raised over $7K internally so that we could assist 41 local elementary school children who needed some holiday magic. Each child received a $150 Target gift card which they could use on themselves and their family. Roswell Police Officers accompanied the children throughout the store to help them with their shopping spree. At the end, our volunteers wrapped the gifts while the kids hung out and ate breakfast with our officers. We want to thank our Citizen’s Police Academy graduates, police explorers, civilian employees, and family members that were at the event to help make this a very special and memorable occasion for the children. The volunteers wrapped gifts, helped with crafts, provided a face painting station, and served breakfast. Although this was called Heroes and Helpers, we were truly the ones that felt honored and blessed to share this special day with these children from our community!

Thank you to the great folks at Tapestry Community Church for providing a holiday lunch for us at our police department today. Our squad room looked quite festive with beautiful decorations and linen covered tables. We were served ham and turkey with so many delicious sides! We sincerely appreciate the Tapestry Church members for such a thoughtful gesture.

Glad we could escort the STATE CHAMPIONS -Congratulations to the Blessed Trinity football team on winng the AAAA state title!

Our squad room was transformed into a salon! Many bushy beards were groomed, and jagged nails were manicured. For the 2nd year, Michael Christian Salon & Dry Bar came out to our police station when they heard that our officers were donating their own money for the Heroes and Helpers event (a shop with a cop type program). Their staff did a fantastic job getting us all spiffed up for the big day this Saturday. We’ll all look great when we are paired a special child to go shopping with!

Our Roswell 911 Center employees processed 939 calls since early Friday morning!

Chief Grant pictured with the wonderful folks who came out to provide lunch, coffee and dessert for the men and women of the Roswell Police Department! We really enjoyed the cookout in our own back yard (parking lot)! 😊

Canines For Christ, a non-profit organization, came to visit our 911 center with one of their therapy dogs, Finn. They wrote to us saying that 911 operators are really “our hidden heroes” and they know how stressful the job can be, so they wanted to stop by and introduce themselves. As you can see, our dispatchers really enjoyed the guest visitor – Finn was full of love and licked everyone!
