On this day of remembrance for the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. we ask our followers to follow this advice. Love more, hate less. That is all.

Thank you to the Norwood Public Works employees for a job well done during this last snowfall. We truly appreciate the effort. We certainly understand that it can be a thankless job and we did not want to miss our opportunity to say, THANK YOU. When we see you out and about, the next round of donuts are on us.

On December 18th at 0415 hours, Officer Ken Devers and Officer Joe Mollman noticed a person walking down the street wearing a backpack. When that person noticed them, he quickly ducked down. Officer Mollman stopped the vehicle so they could speak with the person. The person then fled on foot from the officers. He ran through a side yard and jumped a privacy fence. Officer Ken Devers pursued him over the fence. However, upon landing on the other side of the fence, he suffered a very serious lower leg injury which ultimately required surgery. The suspect was able to evade capture. That night. Officer Devers, after the surgery and some resting at home, reported back to work on light duty status last week. This past Monday night he was in the rear lot speaking with a detective when he noticed a two persons walking south on Montgomery Rd passing the NPD station. He remarked to the detective that one of the persons looked like the person who ran and was wearing a coat very similar to the one that person wore. They decided to alert dispatch to have cars respond to the area to stop and detain this person. Well, as luck would have it, once this person was detained, he admitted to being that person who ran from the officers on the night in question. He was brought to the station for further questioning and charged with obstruction of official business. The suspect, a juvenile, had no prior police contact and stated he was just scared he was out past curfew. The suspect, at his request, made a formal apology to Officer Devers. Officer Devers accepted his apology and they shook hands. Good work and a great eye Officer Devers. Hopefully you will be back to full duty soon.

One of our fans sent us a message this morning, because it is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, thanking us for our service. This was a complete surprise to us. What a surprise. We did not know it was National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. One reason might be because we live in a great community, with great citizens, who thank us on a daily basis for our service. We always appreciate the kind words. We work hard to provide our citizens the best possible service. So this is our thank you to everyone who has or will reach out and offer their appreciation to a law enforcement officer today.

This cute pup was found on the West side of Norwood this evening. If anyone can help us find the owner, please call the Norwood PD non-emergency number at 513-458-4520. --CF 172

Thank you for all your help. Tre Gordon-Phillips has been located.

Don't forget to download the saferride mobile app from the NHTSA. It is free and available on all Android and Apple products.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 36 fatalities occurred per day on average in the United States as a result of crashes involving an alcohol-impaired driver. This number soars to 54 per day over the New Year’s holiday. The NPD implores you to not drive if you have been drinking. There is no excuse for driving while impaired. The risk to benefit ratio is off the charts. If you will be drinking, plan on not driving. Plan your safe ride home before you start the party. Designate a sober driver ahead of time. If you drink, do not drive for any reason. Call a taxi, phone a sober friend or family member, use public transportation, etc. Download NHTSA’s SaferRide mobile app which helps you identify your location and call a taxi or friend to pick you up. If someone you know has been drinking, do not let that person get behind the wheel. Take their keys and help them arrange a sober ride home. If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact local law enforcement. Your actions could help save someone’s life. Please have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2018.

We are looking for Norwood residents who might be interested in being part of a Neighborhood Watch. This would require minimal time but could have a very positive impact. If you are interested please send an email to wkramer@norwoodpolice.org with you name, address and phone number.

It's cold outside. It is also no fun getting into a cold car. With that in mind it is even less fun to come out and find a car you left running unattended has been stolen. Please don't leave your car running and unattended!!

Join ASAP Norwood in taking the peer positive pledge in January 2018. It's very simple to do and does not require a huge commitment. This pledge has three options. 1. Pledge to remain alcohol-free in January. 2. Monitor your alcohol intake for the month. 3. Refrain from posting about alcohol on social media. It's that simple. Please read the attached link or visit their website and facebook page for more information.

We still have a few packages for residents that haven't been picked up. If you had a package delivered to the PD but haven't picked it up yet, please come get it at your earliest convenience.

The Members of the Norwood Police Department would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. We hope that God blesses you and keeps you safe during this holiday season.

While out on patrol today, Officer Joe Wu saw this little guy operating a remote control car. The next thing you know, the little guy loses control of the RC car and it ends up going down a sewer opening in the curb line. He was devastated. Officer Wu saw the sadness in the young man's eyes. He decided to purchase him a new RC car. Needless to say, this young resident was extremely happy. Great job Joe!

The holidays are known for being merry and bright, but they’re also known for being the deadliest season when it comes to drunk driving. Every holiday season, lives are lost due to drunk drivers. Please do you part to make this a safe holiday season for everyone on the road. Keep the season bright by finding a sober #designateddriver to get you home. #DriveSober or Get Pulled Over. #drivesafeohio

We got to help out at the Williams Elementary and Norwood View Elementary Christmas Craft Sales the last couple of weeks and had a great time. Thank you to both schools for inviting us to help wrap the crafts the students purchase. It is something our officers look forward to every year.
