Massillon Police Department News

This guy has been hanging out near my house, stalking me. I think I'm gonna have to call JTPD. Lol Go Cavs! Be safe. Enjoy your weekend :) B. Muntean (MPD, Retired)

Today is “Armed Forces Day”. 1) Veterans Day is to honor those who HAVE SERVED and were HONORABLY DISCHARGED from our US Armed Forces. 2) Memorial Day is to honor those who DIED while serving in any war or military action. 3) Armed Forces Day is to honor those who are CURRENTLY SERVING in our US Armed Forces. It seems that people often get them confused. I think we owe it to all of them to get it right. A huge thank you to those currently serving in our military. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 B. Muntean (MPD, Retired)

if you didn't know, this week is police week. The afternoon shift is celebrating with Dairy Queen ice cream cake 😃🍨🎂

I am a Police Officer. That means that the pains and joys of my personal life are often muted by my work. I resent these intrusions but it is my job to do the things others fear to do. The label 'police officer' creates a false image of who I really am. Sometimes I feel like I'm floating between two worlds My work is not just protecting and serving. It's preserving that buffer that exists in the space between what you think the world is, and what the world really is. My job isn't like television. The action is less frequent, much more graphic and it involves all my 5 senses. What I Smell, Taste, See, Touch and Hear at these horrific scenes will stay with me long after I close the file. It is not exhilarating to point a gun at someone. Pooled blood has a disgusting metallic smell and steams a little when the temperature drops. CPR isn't an instant miracle and it's no fun listening to an elderly grandmother's ribs break while I keep her heart beating. I am flattered by your curiosity about my work. What you need to know is I don't keep a record of which incident was the most frightening, or the strangest, or the bloodiest, or even the funniest. I don’t want to share the images that haunt me with others. But I do have some confessions to make: Sometimes my stereo is too loud. Music sometimes makes it easier to forget the wasted body of the young man who died alone in a rented room because he was hooked on crack. A hug erases the sight of the nurses who sobbed as they scrubbed layers of dirt and slime from a neglected 2 year olds skin. The anger that beats inside me assures me that it was ignorance that drove a young mother to not put her toddler in a car seat as she drove around today. Sometimes I might seem rushed or impatient. I am having trouble shedding the adrenaline that kicked in when I discovered that the man I handcuffed during a drug raid was sitting on a loaded 9mm pistol. Sometimes I'm not as attentive as you would like. I was distracted when you complained about your noisy neighbour because I was remembering the apartment of the elderly women who lay dead and decaying for a week because no one came to check on her. Sometimes I'm not as sympathetic as you would like. I'm not overly concerned about your ability to pay your speeding ticket, it's because I really wanted to tell you that I attended a call just yesterday where a speeding careless driver took the life of a child. I didn't sleep last night because I could still hear her mother's screams. Take a moment and remember what my job is and isn't. Police officers are needed but what we do can leave lasting effects on my family and I. Take a moment and tell an officer that you appreciate their work. Smile and say 'Hi' when I am getting coffee. Bite your tongue when you start to tell a 'bad cop' story. Better yet, find the time to tell a 'good cop' story. The family at the next table may be a cop's family. Talk to us as a person next time you see one of us. We are human.

Apparently retired life is as dangerous as police work. I figured I’d share this GoPro video to remind you about bike safety and the importance of wearing a helmet. Here’s a GoPro video showing the importance of paying attention to things like slick, muddy bridges. And yes...that hurt. Lol It’s okay you can laugh. I did too after the pain went away. Lol B.

As part of the group "True Blue Community of Stark County" Erica and Bryce dropped off gift packages of pens, notebooks, gum, and hand sanitizer to all the officers of MPD. Thank you for your support!

128 LEOs died in the line of duty in 2017. Those 128 names will be added to the wall of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial this week. Each May during National Police Week, between 25,000 and 40,000 LEOs from around the world converge on our nation’s capital to honor the fallen. The names of fallen officers are engraved on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. Police Week is something to see if you happen to be in D.C. this week. God Bless those heroes... 👮🇺🇸🙏 U-70 (MPD, Retired)

Some officers tend to hide on their birth week, so we can’t put them on our Facebook page. Luckily for us Facebook sometimes reminds us of those days. So, I would like to wish Officer Steve Slack a happy birth week!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. You have one of the most important jobs in the world. For those whose mothers have passed, may you cherish the memories. 💙 B. Muntean (MPD, Retired)

***Update*** Our furry friend found a foster home! This handsome and super sweet boy was found in Reservoir Park. The humane Society is unwilling to take him in, as he is not sick or injured and is not a pup. If you know his owner or are interested in fostering him please contact the Massillon non emergency line at 330832911 FYI he is neutered

Update on the missing child case from yesterday. The child was found last night and returned to the mother safely. The grandmother has been charged. I see/hear a lot of people complaining that an Amber Alert was never issued. There is criteria that must be met before an Amber Alert can be posted. This case did not meet that criteria. I will post a link in the comments if you would like to read further. Have a great day U-113

Update for Washington DC parents. We are ahead of schedule and our estimated time of arrival back to Massillon is 7:30.

Attention parents of students in Washington DC. We are heading home at this time. Our E.T.A. to Massillon is 8:15 p.m.

After a good breakfast, we are making the trek up the hill to the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. The kids are having fun, are in good spirits and are very well behaved! Representing the T-I-G!

I hope the parents of kids we have in Washington DC understand we go to great lengths to provide safety for your children!

Stops at the Jefferson Memorial and FDR.

Thanks to Cornerstone Baptist Church for honoring law enforcement officers. Nice article in The Rep today. Nice words by MPD Chief Keith Moser. Be safe... B. Muntean (MPD, Retired)

Good morning parents! After a good night’s sleep, we are starting the day out with a good breakfast before heading to the monuments and memorials! 😎☀️

Parents of students in Washington DC. We made it! Your child is safe & sound in their rooms and are getting ready for bed! Nighty night!

I want to let the parents of 5th graders going to Washington DC know we are stuck in traffic on I-70 due to a bad accident (not us) and will be delayed approximately 2 hours getting to our hotel. Det. Jamie Slutz

The kids (and Detective McConnell) standing atop Little Round Top at Gettysburg!

Our annual trip to Washington DC with 5th graders from Massillon Intermediate School is off to a rainy start. First stop...Gettysburg! Det. Jamie Slutz U-81

Beautiful day in the O-H. Hope you enjoyed it. Saw this @ Wingfoot Lake State Park. Thought I'd share... Be safe... B. Muntean (MPD, Retired)

A few pics from Canal Park (Akron). Tim Tebow was visiting, too. Beautiful evening for a baseball game...⚾️⚾️⚾️. B. Muntean (MPD, Retired)

Good news: Sgt Jason McCune advised me that "Massillon's Lil' Hero" and her family are all set up / booked for an upcoming all-inclusive trip to Disney. I was told that she's super excited. A huge thank you to all of you who donated. We had everything from businesses to small children giving their allowance to "right a wrong" that took place in our community. I just wanted to make sure you all were updated. I wanted you to know that your hard-earned money was going to what it was intended for. Thank you all kindly. B. Muntean (MPD, Retired)
