EMPLOYEE-OF-THE-WEEK This week we are recognizing Ptl. Kunka for his textbook pursuit of a fleeing felon on October 2nd around 0100 hrs. Ptl. Kunka witnessed several moving violations which prompted the attempted stop and then the pursuit out of the city and into Ravenna Township. With speeds up to 70 MPH, Ptl. Kunka was able to calmly and professionally communicate critical information to dispatch while pursuit driving. The suspect eventually turned onto a dead end where he got stuck in the mud and fled on foot. The impaired suspect was placed under arrest and found with drugs, alcohol and weapons. Great catch Ptl. Kunka!

*** UPDATE *** This dog has been returned to his owner. Thank you to everyone who shared this post :) Found dog. Please SHARE! Help us find this dogs current owner or possibly his new forever family.

We can not believe that it is already October and as we all know October is breast cancer awareness month. It’s important to educate, eradicate and support others in the fight. We here, at KPD, have been affected by this horrible disease when we lost one of our own, Officer Susan K Graves back in December of 2007. Susan fought a very hard & courageous battle. Susan started her law enforcement career with KPD as a jailer in September of 1996 after that she went to work “up on the hill’ as an officer for the Kent State University Police Department . She was then hired in 2000 as a Kent Police Officer. In 2006 she was sworn in as a Marshall with the Northeast Ohio Violate Fugitive Task Force. Every year in October some members of the Kent Police department will donate money, have bake sales or sell pink bracelets within the department. We also hold a raffle within the department from items that have been donated by KPD members. That money is then donated to local cancer patients and support groups in memory of our friend, Officer Susan K. Graves. #227. #kpdohio #kentohiopolice #kpd227 #makingstridesagainstbreastcancer #noonefightsalone🎗️💙🎗️
