The Quilter's Guild of Parker County donated handmade quilts to first responders who were victims of Hurricane Harvey. More than half of the employees of our department lost homes or property during the hurricane and each received one of these quilts. Pictured with some of our officers are Gary and Lois Tandy, members of the LaPorte PD Citizens Police Academy , who assisted with the delivery of the quilts. A big thank you to the talented members of the Quilter’s Guild of Parker County for sending warm thoughts and quilts for our officers and staff.

Westbound lanes of traffic in the 3000 block of FM 517 are closed at this time. The railroad company has the lanes closed while repairs are made to the roadway. The roadway at the tracks began to deteriorate, forcing the railroad company to perform repairs. Anyone traveling from the east side of town, near the high school, is advised to use an alternative route other than FM 517. Alternative routes are either Deats Road or FM 646. The roadway will be closed until further notice. UPDATE Road closure has been opened. All west bound lanes of traffic along FM 517 are now open and road repairs have been completed.

We would like to thank Victoria De La Garza for supplying all of our officers with hand knitted caps for the cooler weather. Victoria is a Dickinson High graduate and the founder of Vics Knitz. Victoria has been a huge supporter of the department. Thank you Victoria, the hats are awesome!

Thank you to Elite Care Emergency for stopping by today and providing a pizza lunch for the officers and staff.

Our thoughts and prayers for Harris Count Pct. 4 deputy constable who was shot earlier this evening and flown by Life Flight to the hospital.

Happy Halloween! Don’t forget, Dickinson First United Methodist Church has organized a Trunk or Treat festival for tonight from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, at the Dickinson High School parking lot, 3800 Baker Drive, in front of the band hall. Since many of the homes in the Dickinson neighborhoods are still damaged and unoccupied, the Trunk or Treat will be a safe alternative from walking door to door. The Dickinson Police Department will have officers participating in the Trunk or Treat at the high school. Here are some Halloween safety tips for a spooky good time. -Wear light producing or reflective devices such as flashlights, glow sticks, or reflective tape to be more visible in the dark. -Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls. -Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible. -Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Parents should talk to children about NOT going ANYWHERE with strangers. A parent or responsible adult should walk with children. -Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear flame-resistant costumes. -Always WALK and don’t run from house to house. -Look both ways before crossing the street and use crosswalks wherever possible. -DRIVERS: drive BELOW the posted speed limit and watch for children and pedestrians in residential areas during trick-or-treating hours. -Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers. Have a safe and fun filled Halloween!

Congratulations to Officer Walt Candelari on his retirement. Walt has been a police officer in Galveston County for the past 45 years. For the last ten years, he has been with Dickinson Police Department assigned to the Community Policing Division. Walt officially retired at the end of August, however his retirement party was postponed by Hurricane Harvey. As you can see, he has already taken up the retirement image. Interim Chief of Police Melvin Mason and Interim City Administrator Ron Morales presented Walt with his “Retired Officer” badge. Walt was also presented with his final duty weapon by Dickinson Police Officer’s Association President Lupe Vasquez. We are going to miss his leadership, humor and compassion around the station. We wish him the best in his retirement. Thank you Walt for all your years of service to Dickinson and the Galveston County communities.

We had a great time at National Night Out last evening. Thank you to everyone who was able to participate. We missed a lot of our neighbors, courtesy of Hurricane Harvey. Wishing a speedy recovery to our City and all those who were impacted by the flooding. We look forward to next year when we can visit with more of the great Dickinson community.
