Bethel Park Police Department News

It’s official! Bethel Church Road is now reopened between Ft. Couch Rd and Drake Rd. We know, we know, we can hardly contain our excitement either... Please use caution while adjusting to the new traffic patterns, and remember the traffic lights are back to normal and must be obeyed. Happy driving!

UPDATE - SOLVED: Thanks to the many tips we received from our post, the driver has been identified and has spoken to our officers. Thank you for being our extra eyes and ears in the community! HELP IDENTIFY: The BPPD is investigating a Hit & Run crash which occurred at Cool Springs on 9/28/17. The white male suspect struck a parked car while leaving the lot. The truck appears to be a 2007-2013 era black GMC Sierra Denali with lift kit, aftermarket black wheels, and riveted fender flares. There also appears to be a passenger who never exited the vehicle. If the suspect or truck look familiar please contact us at crimewatch@bethelpark.net

At tonight's council meeting, several people were recognized for their role in a successful CPR save last month. On 8/27/17, James Barozzini (2nd from right) went into cardiac arrest in the parking lot of Giant Eagle Market District. Giant Eagle employees Christopher Adams (right), Patty Oravetz and Josh Czemerda (not pictured) began CPR and administered two shocks with an AED before police and EMS arrived. BPPD Officer Sean McGrail (center) and Tri-Community South EMS Paramedic Charles Bryan and EMT Todd Bost (left) arrived and took over life-saving efforts and transported Mr. Barozzini to the hospital. We are grateful to those members of the community who used their training to help make the CPR chain of survival a success.

ALERT: Several residents have reported a phone scam where an automated message claiming to be Apple tech support requests the recipient call an 800 number to fix a problem with their Apple device. The phone number on the caller ID is 412-308-1970, which is the REAL number for the Apple Store at South Hills Village Mall. This number is being spoofed to convince the recipient that it is a legitimate call, when it is not. Never give banking or personal information over the phone to anyone whose credentials you cannot verify. Please let your friends and family know, especially our elderly residents who may be more susceptible to scams.

REMINDER: Crime Watch meeting tonight, Monday October 2, 2017 at 6:30PM at the Bethel Park Community Center.

The office will reopen on Wednesday, October 4th and the phone & fax number will remain the same.

Due to an increase in overnight burglaries and thefts from motor vehicles in the region, we want to remind our residents to ensure their homes and cars are locked at all times, even when they are home. Most of our incidents have involved access through unlocked doors, so please be vigilant and always report suspicious activity IMMEDIATELY to 412-833-2000.

BPPD Detectives Joelle Dixon and Ken Radinick were recognized this past week for their efforts in the investigation and arrest of two suspects believed responsible for 24 commercial burglaries in 11 communities. Multiple police agencies worked together for several weeks to help identify and apprehend those responsible.

K9 Jeez now has some extra protection thanks to Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. Bethel Park Police Department’s K9 Jeez has received body armor. Bethel Park Police Department’s K9 Jeez has received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. K9 Jeez’s vest is sponsored by a fundraiser hosted by the Alpha Delta Fraternity of Pittsburgh, PA and was embroidered with the sentiment “In memory of K9 Aren from the men of Alpha Delta”. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c (3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 2,600 protective vests, in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a cost of over 2.1 million dollars. The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate. The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $1,050.00. Each vest has a value between $1,795 – $2,234 and a five-year warranty, and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There is an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States. For more information or to learn about volunteer opportunities, please call 508-824-6978. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts tax-deductible donations of any denomination at www.vik9s.org or mailed to P.O. Box 9 East Taunton, MA 02718.
