Turner Police Department News

The following was written by Mr.Petersen, Principal at Turner Elementary, and included in this months edition of the, “Tornado Times.” We couldn’t be more happy and proud of our elementary school, it’s staff, students and leaders as well as all of our community members who make it their priority to keep our children safe!! Thanks for all you do! Keep it up! “The most important part of keeping our school and community safe is a constant awareness of our surroundings and the confidence to report anything that appears out of place. A couple days ago I walked outside during lunch recess. I was outside for only a moment when a car pulled up to the gate along Boise Street and the driver waved to get my attention. The driver let me know she just saw two people walking our campus playground trail and “they didn’t look like they belonged to the school.” A moment or two later several kids rushed over and pointed out two people walking on the backside of the trail (closest to Aldersgate) and let me know they didn’t know who they were. Before I could even react or evaluate what they (the two people on campus) were doing, I got a call on the radio from a staff member repeating the same information the kids and the driver conveyed. The staff member wanted to know if we needed to evacuate the playground (our practiced first response when in doubt).I hustled over and intersected the walkers. I let them know it was a closed campus and they needed to leave; which they were more than happy to do. This couple told me they were just walking along the creek trail enjoying the weather. They completely understood why they needed to leave and apologized for the disruption. I believed their story, but still walked them off school grounds. I was also glad it happened. Moments like this are a solid test of our first line of security—staff and students reporting anyone or anything out of the ordinary. These strangers gave us all a reason to evaluate our response to an unfamiliar person on our campus and a chance to assess our reactions. After recess, I debriefed with the students that were at recess and let them know how proud I was that so many of our kids and staff saw and reported these people. We had a great conversation and I heard over and over from our kids how safe they feel at Turner and how proud they were of themselves, our school and community. I feel the same way.We’re in this together! -Mr. Petersen”

Spots of ice this morning so drive carefully, giving yourself a few extra minutes and slow down.

Here is the most recent update....you'll see that the total has gone from 1" - 4" to 2" - 5". Be prepared!!

Please be prepared for this, this evening and tomorrow morning!

I have debated sharing this video or not as I did not want to give credit, in any way, to these two individuals or what they stand for. However, I think it is extremely important to share with all of our community members a glimpse of what we deal with. Interacting with dangerous people is what we do. We are committed to ensuring the safety of our community and its residents, no matter the cost to us, the officers. We do this with pride and courage but also the uncertainty of the type of threat we face. These two men showed up while Officer Holmes was on a call for service. They had absolutely nothing to do with this call and were not involved in any aspect of it, whatsoever. They intentionally attempted to instill fear in Officer Holmes by distracting him as well as splitting up, flanking him. I am very proud how Officer Holmes reacted, handled the situation and maintained professional the entire time! https://youtu.be/pg3DI3_0iCw
