Goose Creek Police Department News

For the rest of November you're likely to see a number of (male) uniformed and non-uniformed GCPD officers who appear to have forgotten to shave. We're participating in the No Shave November campaign to raise cancer awareness. For the low price of $25, officers may forego shaving their faces during the month of November. The money raised will be donated to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. As you might tell, a couple of officers had days off that gave them a nice head start.

Chief Becker and Major Grainger were honored to attend the ribbon cutting at the new Mevers School of Excellence!

Officer Sabbah and his partners will be in your neighborhoods this evening looking for ghosts, zombies, ninja turtles, pirates, super-heroes, space-aliens, and the like. They'll also have a bag or two of candy so keep an eye out!!!!!!

Our deepest condolences extend to the family of Firefighter/EMT Robby Brannon and our brothers and sisters in public service in the City of Goose Creek Fire Department.

Our deepest condolences extend to the family of Trooper Daniel Keith Rebman, the South Carolina Highway Patrol, and the South Carolina of Public Safety.

Officer Morrison represented GCPD at the Careers on Wheels event at Marrington Elementary School. Always recruiting.....

We are aware that the man pictured has been seen around the Crowfield area knocking on doors to ask that his cell phone be charged or to borrow reading glasses. We also believe he approached a car in traffic this morning on Westview Blvd. at Crowfield Blvd. and tried to get the driver to roll down her window. All officers on patrol have this photo and are looking for him. We are asking anyone that sees him to call (843) 572-4300 or 911 immediately so that an officer can be dispatched to investigate his activity.

Great evening with our 2017 Citizens Police Academy!! No beer or liquor - just DUI goggles.

Congratulations to Officer Emerson Beach on his graduation today from the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy (Basic 671).

We were honored to recommend Officer David Coffey for consideration for the Officer Gregory Alia Award.

Look who showed up Saturday for Crowfield Fest.

GCPD Awarded Traffic Safety Grant This week GCPD was notified by the S.C. Department of Public Safety (SCDPS) Office of Highway Safety and Justice Programs that it was awarded $120,440 to fund one dedicated DUI enforcement officer for one year. In addition to the full salary and fringe benefits, the funding will pay for the patrol vehicle and all associated vehicle and personal equipment. The grant officer will spend 100% of their working hours patrolling and observing for motorists operating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The vehicle will be marked and will bear the SCDPS “Target Zero” and South Carolina Law Enforcement Network decals. The grant period begins October 1st and will end September 30th, 2018. GCPD takes traffic safety seriously and hopes this program will help prevent any future traffic fatalities within the city.

Big thanks to all of the Cop-Stop families that selflessly prepare delicious meals each Saturday for our police officers. We are grateful.

Officer Hunter Carter (and several other officers) enjoyed having lunch with Westview Elementary School students today during Cop-Stop.

Goose Creek Police Department’s K9’s Kron & Dax to get body armor Goose Creek Police Department’s K9’s Kron & Dax will receive bullet and stab protective vests thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. K9 Kron’s vest is sponsored by an Anonymous Sponsor and will be embroidered with the sentiment “In memory of Rex.” Dax’s vest is sponsored by an Anonymous Sponsor and will be embroidered with the sentiment “In memory of Natasha”. Delivery is expected within eight to ten weeks. 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 $950.00. Each vest has a value between $1,744 – $2,283 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.

Bridgetown Rd. Is flooded. Avoid this area if you must drive.

We now have several traffic signals in flash mode. If you absolutely have to drive, it is very important to slow down and ensure you can pass through flashing intersections safely.

Officers are on patrol monitoring for roadway hazards and responding to calls for service. It is important to understand the potential for damaged/malfunctioning traffic signals and debris on roadways. Consider staying off the roadways if possible until the storm passes us.

•••Shelter Update••• We have been informed that there will be NO shelters opening at Westview Schools.

Our plans are in place for whatever Hurricane Irma presents us. Our records bureau and and other non-essential offices will be closed Monday and Tuesday. Our dispatch center and patrol officers are still here 24/7.
