Thanks to Boy Scout Troop 74 for breakfast at their pancake feed this morning! The troop is at the First Presbyterian Church until 7 p.m. tonight if you want to stop by!

Thanks to all of the kids who braved the cold and the flurries of snow to come trick-or-treat with Officer Jager at Westloop on Tuesday!

We understand the high level of interest in this case and the push for information to come out as quickly as possible. We want to assure the public that every reasonable effort is being made to conclude the investigation in a timely but thorough manner. The duration of the investigation, however, is being driven by the number of people to be interviewed. There are approximately 70 students listed on the MHS varsity/junior varsity football roster, and we want to make sure everyone is given a chance to provide investigators with information relevant to the case.

"I enjoy doing the program because I was that kid before. Our family was adopted for Christmas multiple times. I grew up in the inner city of Kansas City with a single mother and two younger siblings, no father. We always struggled financially come that time of the year during holidays. So for me its a personal thing, I want to give back as someone else that was more fortunate gave to us!"-Officer Townsend on the Cops N' Kids program. ***Cops N' Kids is an FOP program RCPD participates in***

Our 911 center & K-State's center are getting back-to-back phone calls with third party information about a planned "shooting in the Ville this weekend." At this point, nothing credible has been found. All information we have received has been third party information. We received the first report of the social media post yesterday. An information report has been filed and officers are aware and have already started looking in to the statements. Again, at this time, nothing credible has been found. If you have information on the source of the claims, we urge you to contact the Riley County Police Department. We want to thank our citizens for being so proactive and reporting this.

Teamwork and Cooperation. They’re part of our core values at RCPD. Values that Officer Pate exhibits every day at work and in her personal life coaching the Women’s Rugby team at Kansas State. The last game for this semester was Saturday and they ended undefeated and tied for 1st in the conference! She’s been coaching for three years now, but has been playing the sport since 2009, throughout college. Three of those years as the captain. Officer Pate says Rugby gives her the opportunity to stay involved in the community and be a positive role model in young women’s lives. “I love being able to teach college women the sport of rugby and watch them grow throughout their college years not only in their knowledge of the world but in their confidence within themselves” Congratulations to Women's Rugby at Kansas State and Officer Pate on ending the semester undefeated!

“Hair for the Holidays” starts TODAY! Our normally clean-shaven officers will ditch shaving for 30 days if they donate $100.00 to the Cops ’N Kids program. Cops ’N Kids is an FOP program which supports kids who otherwise may not have a Christmas. In December, Police Officers, Detectives, and Corrections Officers join forces to take several area children shopping for gifts of their choosing.

It's fitting that our support staff dressed up as Super Heroes for Halloween because they always save the day at RCPD. Whenever a piece of technology isn't working, any emergency calls are made and citizens need help at the department--these are the people that make sure everyone is taken care of!

And the winner of the RCPD Halloween Costume Contest is...... THE MAD HATTER! Thank you for all of your votes (even though most of you thought she was a leprechaun) Ha!

Thank you Riley County for helping to prevent pill abuse and theft by participating in our drug take-back event this past Saturday! We successfully collected about 167 pounds of medications!

It doesn't have to cost a lot to make a difference in a someone's life. Maybe just a little time, and a couple of pumpkins. Detective Dickson and her little Makenzie carved pumpkins at the Police Department for Halloween. Great job on the cat ladies!
