Our own PO Lee dances with Hamilton's "Dancing Trucker" John Drury! Drury stated to the Journal News that this all started in 2011 when he "lost 100 pounds through dance, dance fitness, and Zumba." If you see him in Hamilton today (he'll be downtown by the courthouse at 5:30), be sure to stop by and dance with him or honk to know you support him! If you don't get a chance to see him, check out his YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheDrury1150/videos Your story is inspirational, John!

Some of the early- to mid-20th century #TBT photos we've posted in the past few weeks have been supplied to us by the grandson of Retired HPD Lieutenant Stan Werlein (deceased). Last week and this week, we've highlighted Lt. Werlein for #TBT. This week, enjoy some photos from when he went through the FBI Academy! Photos circa the early 1940s.

We're eight days from our FREE active threat class. The class only has 12 seats left, so you still have time to register, but not much! Please go to the Event page to learn more about the class and how to register: https://www.facebook.com/events/797850630399516

We had a wonderful time at Operation Pumpkin, and we hope everyone else did as well! The Operation Pumpkin committee is always looking to know what worked or how they can improve, so feel free to contact them on their web page at http://operation-pumpkin.org with feedback.

We had some special visitors yesterday: Cookies for a Cop! They dropped off some delicious treats for our officers, as well as four special cookies that have been making the rounds around the department in honor of Smile for Brooklyn. Brooklyn, a sweet girl from Northern Kentucky, was diagnosed with DIPG 7 days after her 5th birthday. DIPG (Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) is a brain tumor and affects children almost exclusively. Unfortunately, she passed away on April 27 of this year, losing her battle with this disease. Thank you, Cookies for a Cop & Our Fire Friends, for the cookies and for bringing awareness to DIPG 7. And to everyone else, join with us to #SmileForBrooklyn with #SweetKindness!

We were honored to once again welcome Greater Hamilton Chamber of Commerce's Leadership Hamilton group today to our headquarters! They learned more about our extensive community engagement, law enforcement roles in our city and got to ask great questions about police involvement in assisting the community to make Hamilton a great place to work, live and play. Our very own Captain Chenoweth is a participant in the class of leaders. After an interactive conversation with Chief Bucheit, the group received a tour of the department. Thanks for visiting with us today!

On Friday, October 3rd, we kicked off our 2017-2018 school year programs with "Say WHOA to Bullying" with Seven Oaks Farm Miniature Therapy Horses at Ridgeway Elementary. Third-graders learn how to recognize the different types of bullying, how to handle being bullied, and the importance of not bullying others. Then they get to meet some adorable and fuzzy guests up close, nose-to-muzzle!

Larry Davis and LOCAL 12, WKRC-TV visited us yesterday during our in-service training to learn more about out active threat training for officers.

Our officers' fall in-service training is four-days long and encompasses a wide variety of topics and activities to help make them more effective, more empathetic, and more balanced police officers. Today, our officers are training in tactically sound ways to engage active violent threats, including this video of foot pursuit drills and handcuffing. Our in house training runs twice each year (spring and fall). It takes 10 weeks to rotate all of our sworn personnel through one in-service session.

** BIG TIP TUESDAY: Can You Identify These People? *** It's #BigTipTuesday time! For this Tuesday, September 26, 2017, our detectives are looking for the identities and locations of these two subjects so that they may have a conversation with them reference separate theft complaints from local businesses. If you recognize either of them and know how we can contact them, please contact Detective Jim Gross at 513-868-5811, EXT 1227. ------------------------------------------------- #BigTipTuesday is a weekly feature where we ask our #HPDSocialSquad (that's YOU) to help us identify and locate subjects that may have information on criminal activity.

*** HELP NEEDED TO ID A SUSPECT*** Attention #HPDSocialSquad, we need your help. The attached photos are of a subject that attempted to rob the Fifth Third bank on NW Washington at 3:56 PM today, and then attempted to rob the US Bank on Main Street a few minutes later at 4:10 PM (Thursday, Sept. 21). Please share far and wide. If you know who this suspect is, contact Detective Webb at 513-868-5811, extension 1262 or if you know his immediate location please call 911.

Has it really been ten years?! Can you recognize any of these handsome fellows? Photos from 2007. #TBT

Tonight is the first night of our 2017 Hispanic Citizens Police Academy. Along with our newest participants, we were honored to have WLWT (Channel 5) and journalist Emily Wood WLWT join us to document the first night!! We have a total of five weeks where participants get to learn about policing in the US and how to positively interact with American police and vice versa. We learn just as much from our participants as they learn from us. Tonight they met several of HPD's officers and detectives; asked many questions about policing differences from one country to the next; toured the Hamilton Police Department and got to see the communications center and the awesome dispatchers.

This may be Bengals Country, but this season, you may want to keep an eye on the Green Bay Packers. Specifically, watch out for # 77, Adam Pankey who was signed to the active roster from the practice squad. Pankey, a draft pick from West Virginia, is a Hamilton City School District HHS graduate. It's exciting to see one of our own do so well, and we wish him great success this season! The Packers go up against the Falcons in just 30 minutes on NBC. Good luck on your NFL primetime debut, Adam!

Don't cry over spilled milk! Patrol Officer Stan Werlein at Third and Heaton working a crash while a wrecker gets ready to haul away the unfortunate milk truck. #TBT Photo taken circa later 1930s or early 1940s. Note: This is actually Third and Village, but the person who supplied the photo had it listed as Heaton. Do any history buffs know if the road west of MLK used to be called Heaton before it was Village?

Live press conference from HPD on multi-jurisdictional drug investigation that resulted in state and federal charges. Guns, drugs and cash seized!

#911 #NeverForget Join us in taking pause today to honor and remember the lives that were lost 16 years ago. We saw the true spirit and backbone of America. We witnessed first responders and civilians alike band together to commit heroic acts to help complete strangers. We were all one ... no divide. Proud of who we were, proud of our heritage and proud of our country. It's hard to believe that it's been 16 years: On September 11, 2001, 19 extremists from al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

We have an amazing time at Hamilton Alive After 5: Heroes last night with Hamilton Fire Department and Butler County Sheriff's Office. Thanks to all who stopped out!

It's #TBT "Help Us ID Officers" edition! We received some amazing photos from the grandson of a former HPD Lieutenant (who spent some time as the acting Chief), however many of the photos contained unidentified officers. Unfortunately, they are also taken during unknown time periods. (We're guessing sometime around the 1940s, give or take a decade.) Here's a handful. Check them out and let us know (on the appropriate photo) if you recognize anyone. And we're at Alive After 5 tonight. There's still time to stop out and see us!

Come out and see us at Alive After 5 tonight. Visit our SWAT officers and try on some gear; get your picture taken with our public affairs cruiser; visit our tent and pick some goodies and even have the kiddos experience the Hamilton Fire Department's smoke house and learn safety techniques! During that, you can stop by one of the many downtown businesses that will be geared up for tonight's special theme!!
