I had the pleasure of meeting this young lady today. Madilyn Terrell stopped by the station for National Police Appreciation Day. She thanked us for our service and brought goodies from Kennedy’s Bakery. She got to tour the police station and meet the guys. She got to sit in a police car and play with the lights and sirens! She was so excited because she wants to be a police officer when she grows up! Thank you Madilyn, stop by anytime and say hello.

The Cambridge Police Detective Bureau has created a profile to contact the public using social media due to less people having active phone numbers. The public can message through this profile but please do not attempt to report any criminal activity but call our dispatch to handle those needs. DB Cambridge is the profile name.

Congratulations to Sergeant Ashton Baker on his promotion!

Our newest cruiser. Notice the new graphics. All new cars will eventually look like this, once the old ones are phased out.

This little girl's mom sent us this picture. She wanted to thank Ptl. Wagner for taking a little time to talk to her daughter. Mom reports that this little visit made her daughters day. Well done Ptl. Wagner.

This afternoon our SRO was alerted to a situation at the Cambridge Middle School. Upon investigating with school administrators, it was learned that a student had brought a knife into the school. At no time was any student threatened with a knife. Other alert students alerted the Principal, who alerted our SRO. Once the identity of the student was know, the school was put on a brief lock down, to keep all students secure in rooms. The student was then removed from the class room and the knife was recovered. The lock down lasted no longer than 5 minutes. The student will be referred to the Prosecutor for charges.

Had a great time talking to Ms. Roe's pre school class at South Elementary. They really liked the back of the police car. Thank you for inviting us Ms. Roe
