The Chillicothe Police Department is excited to announce that we are accepting applications for the first annual Citizen Police Academy. We will accept 12 applications for this 8-week Citizen Police Academy. Our estimated start date is July 9, 2018, and the classes will be held every Monday from 6p-8p for 8 consecutive weeks. Attendees will be exposed to many facets of law enforcement. The class topics should be both interesting and informative. You will also be afforded the opportunity to meet many of the members of the Chillicothe Police Department and the law enforcement community. As a result, we hope to provide an environment that will help foster improved relationships between the police and community. The Citizen’s Police Academy should prove to be a very popular program within our Community Policing efforts. It is our desire that the graduates will become partners with us in identifying problems and solutions to the quality of life issues that face our community. We trust that when you graduate from the program, you will have a greater understanding of our mission and the vision we share in making the City of Chillicothe a better and safer place to live, work, and raise a family.

On June 12, 2018, at approximately 4:00 PM, members of the Chillicothe Police Department and Livingston County Sheriff’s Office served a Livingston County Search warrant in the 1400 block of Polk Street. Officers arrested 47 year old Rodney Henderson and 34 year old Mandy Stover for endangering the welfare of a child and possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute. Officers seized a substantial amount of methamphetamine and marijuana, along with evidence of narcotics distribution. The Detective and Officers have been working a multi-month investigation with the assistance of the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Lafayette County Drug Task Force, resulting in this search warrant for drugs. We would also like to thank Brookfield Police Department for the use of their K9 and handler during the execution of this warrant. This comes because of the hard work and dedication of the Chillicothe Police Officers. I am proud of the work the Chillicothe Police Department is doing. The staff cares for our community and takes our job serious in keeping our community safe.

On June 13, 2018, the Chillicothe Police Department has received calls from our citizens in reference to a scam going around by telephone. The reports are that the scammers are using the Chillicothe Police Department phone numbers and requesting the citizen’s address, so they can send the citizen an envelope, and the citizen can mail the scammer money for donations. The Chillicothe Police Department is not requesting donations. This is a scam .

Last week Chief Jon Maples attended Practical De-escalation Tactics and Critical Decision-Making Instructor Course in Topeka, Kansas. This Train the Trainer course combines a classroom and hands-on training experience in “critical decision-making and tactics” essential for the 21st century law enforcement officer. Chief Maples became certified to train others in the skills, methodologies and tactics needed to reach successful conclusions to a variety of threats and situations faced by today’s officers. Future trainings will equip officers with the proper skills to keep the public and officers safe from harm. Chief Maples will focus on integrating this model with our agency’s current policies and procedures so it can be implemented immediately. This training takes the essential building blocks of critical thinking, crisis intervention, communications, and tactics, and puts them together in an integrated approach. This training helps officers assess situations, make safe and effective decisions, de-escalate volatile situations, properly articulate their actions and learn from every experience. This training covers a wide range of topics from dealing with persons in crisis to handling an active shooter situation and everything in between. Chief Maples is scheduling a time for or our staff to start training on this and implementing it soon to keep our community and officers safer. #GreatestCitySince

Come join us May 25th at 8 AM, for our Coffee with Cops at Chillicothe McDonalds. There will be coffee and great conversations. Come and see what we are doing and what our goals are.

On Wednesday afternoon you may have driven by and seen multiple officers out with three detained subjects on Washington Street. The police department was contacted by a concerned business owner who had previously been visited by these individuals. The business owner reported they had a threatening and suspicious demeanor and had suspicious property they were attempting to sell. An investigation revealed that a burglary had taken place previously in Carroll County. Two males and a female were arrested for possession of a controlled substance. One male was later released pending investigation. The stolen property investigation continues. We would like to thank Brookfield Police and their K-9 for assistance as Deputy Zaki was unavailable. We try to keep our community safe. We do not appreciate people harassing our business owners and citizens or bringing illegal activity into our amazing community.

On May 2, the Chillicothe Police Department partnered with Gateway Recovery, and members of our community Kati Johnson and Willy Deardorff to present a drug safety talk to the Lifepoint Church Aftershock Youth Group. The presentation detailed the consequences of drug use, our goals as officers to combat the drug problem, and get the word to them before peer pressure gets to them. Kati and Willy told the youth their addiction story and the road it took to recover from their addictions. They provided advice on how to not get started on drugs and ways to assist in stopping issues before they begin. Gateway representative Maggie McCoy told the youth of the recovery process and how strict it is, but how well it helps. The team did a great job. Our goal is to get into the lives of our youth and let them know the pressures they will face and the life long consequences they face from making one poor decision. Our hopes are that we spread the word before they face peer pressure and go down the wrong path. Chief Maples told the group, “I could just stand here and tell you, we will arrest you for using drugs, but how would that help? We want you to see if from our community members who have went through it and are in recovery.” The Chillicothe Police Department takes pride in keeping our community safe and clean which is why we take proactive and preventative measures.

Congratulations to Chillicothe Fire Chief Darrell Wright on being named the 2018 Fire Chief of the year! This is a well deserved award.

This morning (May 8th) the Chillicothe Police Department have been extremely busy. Chief, Detective, and staff were called in because of a wanted individual investigation. While the Detective was applying for a search warrant, officers were setting on the residence. The Chief responded to a trespassing call and arrested a 20 year old female. She was later released pending a court appearance. Officers and the Detective then responded to a domestic assault in the 200 block of Business Highway 36 where they arrested a male for domestic assault and a female on an active arrest warrant out of the State of Florida. While there were two individuals in custody, officers met with Livingston County Deputy Mueller and K-9 Zaki. We were granted the Livingston County Search Warrant by the Judge and Prosecutor Adam Warren to search for the wanted individual. At approximately 0930 hours, Officers of the Police Department along with Deputy Mueller and Zaki served the Livingston County search warrant in the 500 block of Mohawk Drive. Officers announced the search warrant several times without compliance. When the Deputy announced that the Livingston County K-9 Zaki was going to be released, the residents changed their minds and decided to comply with officer’s requests. We arrested 29 year old Thomas William Gamble on an active Livingston County arrest warrant and an active Carroll County arrest warrant. We also arrested two females for hindering the arrest of Mr. Gamble. By 10:00 A.M.. today (May 8th) officers had arrested six people for various misdemeanor and felony charges.

Detective Smith and Officer Murdock attended Kid’s First training. Kid’s First interviewing protocol enhances the education and training for front line child abuse professionals. It was designed for investigative team of law enforcement, social workers, prosecutors and forensic interviewers to work better work together to solve investigations and protect the kiddos. The training consisted of the child forensic interview protocol, child development, memory and suggestibility, testifying in court and legal issues. The training incorporated both lecture and discussion and integrated skill building exercises where officers were able to mock interview each other. Officers were able to take away a better understanding of how the Kid’s First protocol operates and a more in depth ability to better investigate crimes against children. We would like to thank the North Central Missouri Children's Advocacy Center for their support and assistance.
