The Holly Springs Police Department has officially kicked off its fund raising efforts for the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics North Carolina. We need help from you and businesses to meet our goal of donating $22,000 by the end of the year! This year we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first International Special Olympics Summer Games which were held in Chicago, Illinois. In recognition of this milestone, the “Fifty for 50” pledge drive has been created. Please consider making a tax deductible donation of at least $50 through the Holly Springs Police Department and help athletes all across our state participate and succeed in the North Carolina Special Olympics during 2018. Donations can be made via cash, check, or credit card. Contact Officer David Boyd of our Community Outreach Team, david.boyd@hollyspringsnc.us or at 919-567-4732 for more information. We would be happy to discuss your donation options! If we raise $2,000 through the pledge drive, HSPD will receive its very own Special Olympics Torch for display in the Law Enforcement Center and use at our fundraising events. In addition, the highest fundraising agency is awarded the ability to send two officers to Chicago for the 50th anniversary celebration in July! Help us show the rest of North Carolina how much we support Special Olympics Athletes here in Holly Springs! “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be BRAVE in the attempt.”- Special Olympics Athlete Oath

On January 30th and 31st Officers Clarke and Boyd of the Community Outreach Team attended the North Carolina Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run Kickoff conference held in Atlantic Beach, NC. They spent Tuesday afternoon bowling with athletes from Carteret County and then attended the fundraising conference. While there, they were able to learn a multitude of new ways to assist in raising funds for the Special Olympics and support our athletes who live here in town! After attending the fundraising event, they participated in a silent auction and dinner at the North Carolina Aquarium which raised an additional $2,000 in just one evening. On Wednesday during the Kickoff conference, our department was presented with a plaque for raising $16,690.20 in 2017.

Sgt. Rick Leach of our SRO Division could not resist having one more snowball fight before the snow melts away. He found some willing participants in the Remington subdivision and it looks like we need to brush up on our skills before the next big snow. Thanks to Kathy Young for sharing.

Do you want to know what happens after sledding? Snowball Fight!!! Looks like Officer Boyd needed backup. Thanks to Graham Rhinehardt for sharing.

We are big kids at heart. Officer Boyd could not resist taking some time and play in the snow with friends at Womble Park. A big thank you to Georgia Pierce Copeland for sharing on this awesome snow day!

We would like to take a moment and remind everyone of the obstacles regarding reporting incidents to our department via social media. We fully understand that communication has expanded greatly over the past several years with the focus on social media. However, out of an abundance of caution, notifying us of suspicious activity, crimes in progress, traffic concerns, or questions that are time sensitive should be reported to our communications center using 911 for emergencies and (919) 557-9111 for non-emergencies. Our social media platforms are not monitored 24/7. Therefore, valuable information that could benefit an investigation or curb illegal activity can be greatly delayed if posted only to social media. Our communications center is staffed 24/7 and we have officers available to address our community's needs day or night. With that being said, we certainly enjoy contact with our citizens over social media. We love posts regarding our interaction with the community and encourage each of you to keep that interaction with us. We simply want to remind everyone that sometimes a good old-fashioned phone call is the best way to get action in a timely manner. When in doubt on whether to call or post, making a call is always the best choice.

Just before Christmas, the Holly Springs Police Department delivered gifts to Duke Children's Hospital for their Snow Blitz campaign. These special presents were donated by our community during our first annual Movie Night/Toy Drive at Ting Stadium. Partnering with the Holly Springs High School Humanitarian Club and our friends Grant and Jennifer from Lowes Foods in Holly Springs, we were able to bring a lot of smiles to the young patients. This morning, Duke Children's Hospital shared photos of everything collected by our department and other charitable organizations from around the state. They wanted everyone to know that they were able to provide multiple gifts to the kids and even hold a little extra for birthday gifts, end of treatment gifts, and restocking their playroom. Once again, we thank everyone that helped with this project and hope to continue this program in the years to come. Another big round of applause for our great community that always answers the call!

On December 14th, School Resource Officers Jarriel and Gledhill, with the help of the Holly Springs High School Physical Education Department and the PD Community Outreach Team, organized a day to have all PE students attempt the North Carolina Police Officer Physical Abilities Test (POPAT). The students were briefed on the two part test and how it relates to the necessary physical capabilities of a law enforcement officer. After the briefing, they were given the opportunity to complete the actual tests or a modified version. Students who successfully completed both phases of either the actual POPAT or the modified version were provided with a certificate of achievement for their hard work. Well over 100 students attempted and completed both tests which involved running, jumping, crawling, push-ups, heavy bag rolls (to simulate a ground fight), and dragging a 150lb dummy (to simulate rescuing an injured person). Congratulations to all of the youths who participated and we look forward to conducting this event again in the future!

The Holly Springs Police Department and Target partnered again this year for the annual Heroes and Helpers program. Through the donations of local residents and businesses, we were able to raise over $8,000! We were able to help 18 kids from 10 different families in the community. On December 10, 2017 officers volunteered their time and took the children shopping at Target here in Holly Springs. After selecting items they would like, volunteer Target team members took the time to wrap all of the presents. On December 23, 2017 the owners of Upwright Moving in Holly Springs volunteered their time and moving truck to assist officers with delivering presents to the children. Due to the generosity of donors, we were also able to provide the families with a gift card to Lowes food for their grocery needs. Thank you to all of our businesses and families who donated to the cause and helped these families during the this holiday season! Happy Holidays!

Officers from the Patrol and SRO divisions delivered wagons, soccer balls and stuffed animals to children and families of students from Holly Ridge Elementary and Holly Springs Elementary. It was a great experience for all of those involved. All of the presents were donated by TE Connectivity in Fuquay-Varina. We could not resist having a little fun with the items before they were delivered. Seasons Greetings to everyone!
