REDMOND POLICE TO PARTICIPATE IN NO SHAVE NOVEMBER - Proceeds to Benefit St. Charles Center Survivorship Program REDMOND, OREGON - Beginning November 1, the Redmond Police Department will shelve the shaving cream and cap their razors to participate in “No Shave November.” “No Shave November” was started as a way to show support for those affected by cancer and bring awareness to various cancer programs. Again this year, the department has partnered with the St. Charles Cancer Center Survivorship Program as the recipient of the donations raised by our efforts. Redmond Police employees have seen firsthand the effects of cancer. Some have lost friends or family members to cancer; others have friends or family who are currently fighting cancer. "No Shave November" is just one small way we can give back to those fighting this disease. If you wish to donate to the “No Shave November” event, you can bring cash or check donations to the police department (checks to be made out to St. Charles Foundation C/O Survivorship Program). Progress pictures of those employees who agreed to participate will periodically be posted here on our Facebook page. The Redmond Police Department would like to extend its appreciation to those who are participating in "No Shave November" and to those who have pledged donations to support those in our community who are fighting this disease.

ADDITIONAL SLOW DOWN SIGNS HAVE ARRIVED For the past several weeks, we have been out of the "Slow Down" signs so many of you have been asking for. I am happy to let you know, we have received several dozen signs and they are ready for pick-up at the police department.

RPD & NEIGHBOR IMPACT PARTNER TOGETHER With the holiday season right around the corner, the Redmond Police Department has partnered with Neighbor Impact < http://www.neighborimpact.org/ > to help provide food for those in need. RPD has placed a donation bin in the lobby of the police department and is accepting donations of non-perishable food items. The food items most in demand for the holiday season are: canned meats (i.e., tuna, chicken, salmon), canned and boxed meals (i.e., soup, chili, stew, macaroni and cheese), peanut butter, canned or dried beans and peas (i.e., black, pinto, lentils), pasta, rice, cereal, canned fruits, and 100 percent fruit juice (canned, plastic or boxed) http://www.neighborimpact.org/services/food/donate-food/ . Our goal is to fill the 50-gallon barrel at least two times before Christmas. So, if you find yourself needing to come to the police department, bring some non-perishable food with you to donate.

START THE CONVERSATION - Shared Future Coalition The Shared Future Coalition is working with multiple partners, including the Redmond Police Department, with the ultimate goal to reduce illegal recreational marijuana use by young people in Deschutes County. The coalition has started a campaign called "Start the Conversation," which encourages parents to talk with teens about marijuana use. Please consider going to www.sharedfuturecoalition.org/start to watch videos and learn talking points for your children. Parents are one of the strongest influencers on their children when it comes to drug use. Assisting parents to have conversations about drug use is important, and the Shared Future Coalition has resources to help. This four-part "conversation" runs through December 18.

RPD PARTICIPATES IN NATIONAL RAILROAD CROSSING SAFETY EVENT Yesterday, RPD Officers were manning the railroad crossing at SE Evergreen Ave near S Hwy 97 handing out railroad safety cards to drivers crossing the tracks. During the three-hour long event, 7 AM to 10 AM, approximately 500 safety cards were handed out to drivers and passengers of vehicles. Also, Officers issued 10 written warnings to drivers who stopped on the railroad tracks (ORS 811.475). During the three hours, two trains passed through the crossing. Please do not stop on railroad tracks, trains cannot stop quickly. It could be your life or the lives of your passengers you are saving. https://media.amtrak.com/2017/09/amtrak-operation-lifesaver-law-enforcement-agencies-partner-operation-clear-track/

GIRL SCOUT TROOP 10772 VISITS RPD On Saturday, September 16, Girl Scout Troop 10772 stopped by RPD to deliver a "Thank you" poster and some goodies to our on-duty Officers. The Troop was treated to a first-class tour by one of our female Officers, which likely made the entire experience much more special. Pictures, courtesy of Troop 10772, are below. As you can tell by the many smiles, it looks like the girls and RPD staff enjoyed themselves. Perhaps one or more may be inspired to become a police officer in the future! Oh....the cookies taste AMAZING! Thank you.

UPDATE - HELP ID ME, PLEASE The below individual has been identified, and the investigation is ongoing. THANK YOU to the many people who contacted us and also shared the post. We cannot do it without you.

POTENTIAL LIFE-SAVING TRAINING Today, medics assigned to the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team (CERT) came to RPD to instruct Officers on how to treat a gunshot wound using trauma dressings and Quickclot. The training was "hands on" thanks to the use of several pig roasts (no jokes please! 😁) from a local butcher shop. This training is intended to teach Officers how to help themselves if they are ever shot, and how to help other victims of a gunshot wound while waiting for medics to arrive. Redmond Police values of all life, and also recognizes we cannot help others if we cannot help ourselves. We desire to provide our employees with the knowledge and materials necessary to help themselves, to instill the sense of survival in our Officers - never to give up, and recognize pain means you are still alive...and that is a great thing.

RPD IS LOOKING FOR HELP ID'ING A PERSON OF INTEREST

CENTRAL OREGON EMERGENCY INFORMATION NETWORK For up-to-date public safety information regarding all things eclipse, click on and follow COEIN. COEIN will be monitoring traffic, public health, fire, and criminal activities throughout the Tri-County area. All public safety agencies working with COEIN, providing information to be shared with the public. Also, know before you go. Utilize TripCheck.com, or 511 to check traffic conditions in the area.

REDMOND POLICE CHANGING HOW MEDIA RELEASES ARE ISSUED For as long as Redmond Police have utilized email, RPD has issued media releases to media outlets by way of email, with a Wordperfect, Word, or PDF document attached. This method of sharing information with the public served us well, but "The Times They Are A Changin" (Bob Dylan, 1964....but I digress). Managing an email list of a few hundred email addresses is time-consuming. We cannot keep up with turnover at media outlets, new media outlets, and those no longer in business. Additionally, we also enjoy sharing information directly with our community through social media. As a result, RPD is changing how we disseminate public alerts and non-urgent media releases. Beginning today, RPD is pleased to utilize FlashAlert to share information with media outlets, the public, and social media, all at the same time. FlashAlert is linked with our Facebook page. Our first media release using this new feature occurred earlier today (you can see the post below). You can trust the link and click on it to view the full story. With this change also comes the ability to post about emergent hazards immediately, road closures due to crashes or other police activity, and weather events in some cases. FlashAlertt is already being used by numerous other public safety agencies and school districts in Oregon. If you are interested in learning more about FlashAlert, go to www.flashalert.net. There, you can sign-up to receive push notifications (if you download the iOS app) or emails sent directly to your email inbox. But let us not forget the most important positive regarding this change.....I will no longer receive more than a dozen returned emails in my inbox every time I send out a media release!!! 😁
