It’s time to recognize our veterans. As previously posted, I’d like you to send in a picture and a few short comments about either yourself (it’s okay to be proud of your service) or someone you want to recognize. Send it via private message to our Facebook site. Saturday is Veterans Day. First post will be MPD Officer Nick Antonides, Air National Guard. Thank you for your service Nick! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 U-70
LET US RECOGNIZE YOUR SERVICE OR A VETERAN YOU’D LIKE RECOGNIZED. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 We’re approaching Veterans Day weekend. You all know that every year I ask you to send in either your own picture, or of a veteran you know (preferably in uniform). You can send a picture and a summary of their service to us via private message. Please limit it to one picture per message. I like to acknowledge them every year for their service to this great nation. That’s the least I can do...because without our veterans and their sacrifices, our lives would be very different. That’s a fact. Less than 1/2 of one percent of the population of the United States of America serves in our military. Thats less than one per 100 citizens. Please think about that this weekend...and please thank a veteran...🇺🇸 Sgt B Muntean
A nice police story to share: I was northbound on SR241, approaching Hills and Dales this morning. I saw a vehicle in the southbound lane and the windows were all iced over, hazard lights on. A female was outside the vehicle, and looked like she needed help. I turned around and got behind her vehicle, blocking oncoming traffic. I got out and found out that she was locked out of her vehicle, parked in the middle of a state route highway during peak traffic time. How you ask? Let’s just say that she had some mechanical issues that lead to that. Nonetheless, I got her vehicle open for her and got her on her way. I mentioned to them that I was on my way to grab a coffee at T-Meldrum’s and saw her. So at least it happened in the right place at the right time. We had a busy morning, so I had to end up stopping later for breakfast. As I go to pay my bill, the waitress tells me that a gentleman had already come into the restaurant and wanted to pay for the officer’s breakfast who had helped his girlfriend this morning when she was stranded on SR241 earlier. I was kind of blown away that he did that. I hope that he or his girlfriend gets this message somehow. I really appreciate your kindness. I tell people all the time that one day when I look back on my law enforcement career, I’ll always remember how kind our citizens were to us when times were tough for law enforcement in other ways. To the kind couple, thank you so much. I’d say that you’re lucky to have one another. God Bless you both and be safe. Sgt B Muntean
Fall colors are almost peaking out...thought I'd share a few pics from today... Sgt B Muntean

Off-duty rant: I don’t know about you guys, but this time change thing is super annoying. What say you? By the way, the overly obsessed girlfriend meme cracks me up. Lol Sgt B Muntean
Postal PL SE this morning as the sun rose...(downtown). Forecast is rain throughout the day today. Standing water may be an issue in certain areas of the city. Keep your speed down. Be safe... Sgt B Muntean
I've always thought that Massillon has some beautiful churches. This one is at 3rd and Lincoln Way East (First United Methodist Church). Have a blessed and safe Sunday... Sgt B Muntean
True, Sir Charles...but we still love our Buckeyes. 🏈 U-70
The traffic signal at 17th and Lincoln Way West will be likely fixed either by Tuesday or Wednesday. A special part had to be ordered. Until then, eastbound and westbound traffic (SR172) has a flashing yellow (proceed with caution) and northbound / southbound 17th NW has a flashing red (same as a stop sign). Just a FYI, as we had a few calls inquiring about it. Thanks and be safe... Sgt B Muntean
So I recently read that you should take about 10,000-15,000 steps per day. My iPhone tracks it, and I always have my phone on me, so I believe it’s pretty accurate. They say if you take that many steps a day, you can still have a donut, and fit into your uniform. Anyways, that’s not the point. I try to do some foot patrol downtown in the early mornings. Serves more than one purpose, ya know. So as I’m near 2nd SE, I see the full moon right behind the flag, and thought I’d take a shot to share. Y’all have a safe day. 👮🇺🇸 Sgt B Muntean
Jennifer asked us to share this...9am today (Sat)! U-70 https://www.facebook.com/events/359516954501504/
Tigers win! Thought you’d get a kick out of this throwback “Eye of the Tiger” video. I did. Lol U-70 https://youtu.be/S6vS9Qa0-ew
Moon was definitely full tonight. Took a few shots to share with ya'll...(Nikon P900). Be safe out there!! Sgt B Muntean
As police officers, we often come into contact with those who are at very low points in their lives. Often, they are suicidal, depressed, and see no hope. When I go on those types of calls, I often remind the person that life is full of peaks and valleys. I tell them that unfortunately, they are in a valley right now. But one day will come out of that valley…and will again reach a peak. I ask them this question: If they had two options for a trip across the country, which one would they take? Trip A, consisting of a long, flat, boring road with nothing to look at along the way...or Trip B, consisting of a winding twisty road making its way through some areas which were very depressing, but also some other areas which were absolutely breathtaking, and add elevation changes, mixing both good weather and bad weather along the way? In other words, to be able to experience total happiness, we must experience some pain & discomfort in our lives, too. Or we’ll have nothing to compare the happiness to. Get a good nights rest. Tomorrow is another day. Sgt B Muntean
