This was a success. Thank you to Scott and Chillicothe Family Pharmacy for the invite and partnering to assist our community. Also, know that we take unused and outdated medications 24/7 at the Chillicothe Police Department to destroy those drugs. Detective Maples and Sgt. Hays enjoyed meeting and talking with the community at this event.

On October 12th, Officers had a ride along. Will has always wanted to be a police officer and October 13th is Will's Birthday. So for his birthday we made Officer Will's dream come true. Officer Will wanted to be a police officer for a day, ride along and eat lunch with police officers. That is just what we did. Officer Will rode with Officer Smith for awhile, patrolled, conducted traffic stops, and kept Chillicothe safe. We then went to eat some pizza at Royal Inn, answered some questions, and had a good conversation with Will.

On 10/3/2017, a citizen brought the following letter and check to the Police Department in order for us to check the validity of it. The individual stated they were a real secret shopper but this seemed fishy and they were right. We quickly noticed that the scammer wanted them to do certain things with the money as you can see from the letter. We ask that you not put it in your bank, nor should you follow the rules of the letter. THIS A SCAM AND COULD COST YOU A LOT OF MONEY AND OR CRIMINAL CHARGES. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Chillicothe Police Department.
