Have a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day, from all of us at the Winfield Police Department!

Happy #FureverFriday! Thanks to data entry clerk Forika McDougald for helping us feature this week’s canine companion, Dexter! Dexter is a male 10 year old black and white long haired Chihuahua Terrier mix. He was found as a stray, so not much is known about him, but what is known is that he loves to be around people! He has been fully vetted and has a microchip! He loves to go for walks and play around. He may be 10 but they say that age is just a number, right? If that's the case, he feels like a 3 year old. Everyone at the Cowley County Humane Society absolutely adores him. He would love to come home with you and meet you and your family. He also loves to wear his little vest when it’s cold out. He looks very dapper in it! Since he was chosen to be PET OF THE WEEK, his adoption is FREEEEEEE with the donation of: 70% alcohol, dish soap, hot dogs, large vinyl gloves, canned pumpkin puree, ream of copy paper.

Several of our officers completed TASER recertification training. All officers in our patrol division carry the device as one of their less lethal options. Our department has two certified TASER instructors: Sgt. David Dougherty and MPO Sean Skov. MPO Skov is shown in the lower right instructing the course.

Spring is right around the corner. This means nicer weather, which means more pedestrian traffic and bicycles on the road. Keep an extra watchful eye when turning corners and near crosswalks. #TrafficTipTuesday

A little funny to help remind you to adjust your clocks for Daylight Savings Time tonight. 😁

Thank you to Southwestern College Athletics for honoring our department with the ceremonial first pitch at today’s game against Friends University. Sgt. Kory Roberts threw the first pitch at the request of Chief Brett Stone, a graduate of Southwestern College. #GoBuilders

Happy #FureverFriday! Thank you to Officer Daniel Porter for helping us feature this week’s furry friend, BamBam! BamBam is a 2 month old white dwarf rabbit. He has been at CCHS since he was about two weeks old. He came from a litter of 7 and he would love to meet you and your family. You will love his floppy ears and his cute little nose. He loves to eat lots of veggies and fruit occasionally. Veggies are his favorite snack. He loves to hop around and play with his brothers and sisters. He would love to hop around your house and find all the cool places to play hide and seek. Since he was chosen to be PET OF THE WEEK for being such an AWESOME DUDE, his adoption is free with any 3 of these donations: a pack of plastic bowls, beef or chicken broth, cans of tuna, canned pumpkin, strawberry, peach, or vanilla yogurts. So head on down to the Cowley County Humane Society and say hello to BamBam and all of his hippity hoppity friends!

*UPDATE: The dog’s owners have come forward, and will soon be reunited with their runaway canine!* Some dogs will do anything to avoid going to the pound, including this one trying to play dead. Needless to say, it didn’t work. MPO McDonald later learned it was just a ploy to get a belly rub. If this is your wayward pup, please call 221-5555, as his plan didn’t work and he was taken to doggie jail. He is a black and brown heeler mix. An accomplice, described as a brown boxer, fled the scene and escaped custody.

If you hear tornado sirens Tuesday morning at 10, don’t be alarmed. Our friends at Cowley County Emergency Management will be testing outdoor warning devices as part of Sever Weather Awareness Week.

Our Bowl For Kids' Sake team, “The 10 Codes,” had a ball today bowling to raise money for Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters Serving Cowley County. Thanks to Cowley County Emergency Communications for letting us borrow Wayne for the afternoon. Kudos to all the other teams present for today’s event, including those from our public safety partners at the Winfield Fire Department and Cowley County Sheriff's Office.

Join us at First United Methodist Church, 1000 Millington, for one of two sessions March 11th and 12th from 4 to 6 p.m. as Winfield PD Lt. Robbie DeLong presents a class on civilian response to active shooters. Additional opportunities to view this presentation will be announced at a later date.

MPO Kevin McDonald is out at Walmart Winfield - Pike Rd with Kelly Alvis, auto care center manager, volunteering his time to raise money for Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters Serving Cowley County. Stop by today until 2 p.m. and say hi!

Happy #FureverFriday! Thank you to Officer Brian Shepard for helping us feature this week's canine companion, Cato! Cato is a 1 year old Coonhound/Retriever, Labrador mix. He is very excited to meet new people, and would love it if you came to the Cowley County Humane Society for a visit (or to take him home)! Cato would love a big yard to play in, but you might need a tall fence, because he sure can jump! Since he was chosen to be PET OF THE WEEK (for being so FANTASTIC) by the staff at CCHS, his adoption is FREEEEE with the donation of KONG ETREME LARGE DOG TOYS.

Beginning February 26 through March 9, 2018 the Winfield Police Department will join other law enforcement agencies in Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma to stop what has been an epidemic for the past several years. In 2015, 13 teens lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas; 40% of those teens were NOT PROPERLY RESTRAINED. In an effort to change this trend, law enforcement across the tristate area will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools, For more than thirty years, officers have educated and warned passengers and drivers regarding the importance of using restraints while in their vehicle. There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to any individual who refuses to obey traffic laws, whether it is for speeding, texting, or failing to buckle up, etc.

Our patrol division tells us things are getting slick out there. If you must leave the house, please take extra caution not only while driving, but while walking to your vehicle. No matter how used to the cold weather you think you are, accidents happen. With overnight temperatures expected to remain below freezing, we'd also recommend leaving early for your morning commute. Morning traffic on slick streets can be a bear.

Our newest officers, Chad Clemons (top photos) and Brian Shepard (bottom photos), were sworn in by Winfield City Clerk Brenda Peters, and had their badges pinned by Chief Brett Stone at last night's Winfield City Commission meeting. They will soon begin training at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center to be fully certified. Welcome to the team, Officer Clemons and Officer Shepard!

Classes today for USD 465 - Winfield have been canceled due to inclement weather. For those heading to work this morning, please leave early and allow extra time to reach your destination, as roadways may be slick.

*** Please LIKE and SHARE this post to help spread the word, and hopefully cut down on the number of folks victimized by these crimes. *** Our officers have worked multiple burglary to motor vehicle reports over the last several days. Oftentimes these reports involve unlocked vehicles, with many having valuables or bags left in plain sight. While our officers are working to solve the existing reports, we'd like to ask residents to do the following to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of these crimes: 1.) Do not leave valuables or bags in plain sight. 2.) Do not leave vehicles unlocked. 3.) Park in a well-lit area when possible. 4.) Keep an eye out for suspicious activity. Together, we can help reduce vehicle burglaries and send a message to those perpetrating these crimes. If you see suspicious activity, please report it by calling (620) 221-5555. If you see a crime in progress, please call 911. If you would like to anonymously provide information on who is responsible for these crimes or any in Winfield, call Cowley County Crime Stoppers at (620) 221-7777.

Happy #FureverFriday! Thanks to Officer Dakota Richardson for helping us feature this week's canine companion, Poppy. Poppy is a 3 year old American Blue Heeler mix. She is a little shy at first, but once she gets to know you she'll be your faithful companion. Since she was chosen as pet of the week (because she's such a sweet girl), her adoption is free with the donation of KONG EXTREME dog toys. You can visit Poppy and all of her furry friends at the Cowley County Humane Society!

Thanks so much to Christian, Haylie, Kye, and Drayden from Whittier Elementary School for bringing us “Kindness Kans” filled with all sorts of goodies, as well as stuffed animals to pass on to children our officers interact with. Sgt. Kory Roberts is shown accepting the gifts.

Our front window will also be closed for Presidents’ Day. It will reopen at 8 a.m. Tuesday, February 20th.

Thank you to Anna from the Winfield Area Homeschool Group for bringing some tasty treats to our station this afternoon. MPO Katasha Coupe is shown accepting the delicious delivery.
