We are still taking donations for Westerville today. We had such a great turnout yesterday. We donated nearly 60 cases of water and Gatorade. We are asking that if you wish to donate today, please do so in the form of snacks. They are out of room for drinks at this point. As always, thank you for your continued support.

Donations for our Westerville Brothers and Sisters have started to come in this morning. We will be making a trip to deliver items tonight. If you have items you’d like to donate please stop by our office. As always, we are so very proud of the support that our community gives.

To all our friends...We will be collecting bottled water and snacks for the officers that are standing with the families of my slain brothers in blue. Please contact us or bring items to 430 South Main St in Pataskala if you would like to help these officers.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Westerville Police department and all of their family and friends during this tragic time. City Government of Westerville, Ohio

Pataskala Police Department’s K9 Joker to get body armor Pataskala Police Department’s K9 Joker will receive a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. K9 Joker’s vest is sponsored by an Anonymous Sponsor and will be embroidered with the sentiment “This gift of protection provided by Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.”. Delivery is expected within eight to ten weeks.

The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 2,800 protective vests, in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a cost of over 2.4 million dollars. The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate. The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $950.00. Each vest has a value between $1,744 – $2,283 and a five-year warranty, and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There is an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States.

PSA: Our Street Department would like to remind everyone to clear the streets for our snow warriors! Please move vehicles into driveways so you and your neighbors can have plowed and salted roadways. Our snow warriors have already ran into a few issues today. Please help them out by sharing this and looking outside to make sure there aren’t any vehicles blocking the width of the trucks and plows to get through. If you see a neighbors vehicle in the way, please reach out to them to help everyone out. Please be careful, this ice and snow fall can be very dangerous!

PSA: With the possibility of another wintery mix coming in, and the fact that we do not want to issue citations for prohibited parking, our snow warriors would appreciate everyone making sure the roadways are clear for them to plow. Below are a couple of examples of what our snow warriors have been running into. Remember, if your neighborhood has a no parking sign posted, please abide by the posting.

We had some visitors last week and from what we hear, they had a great time! The little one also spotted Officer Maddux at a local business and wanted her picture taken with him!
