Suspect in Custody Following Domestic Violence Incident PAGE, AZ (November 6, 2018): On November 5, 2018, at approximately 7:09 AM, officers from the Page Police Department were dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of Cyprus Ave. in reference to a possible domestic disturbance. An initial investigation revealed that the victim had been involved in a violent physical altercation at her home with her boyfriend, identified as Gerardo Gonzalez-Ballesteros. The victim was able to flee the residence to a neighbor’s house to call for help. The victim was transported to the Page Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Officers believed Gonzalez-Ballesteros was still inside the residence and potentially in possession of a firearm. Multiple homes in the immediate area were evacuated and soft lock downs were placed on nearby schools. The Page Fire Department was placed on stand-by and officers from the Page Police Department, Coconino County Sheriff’s Office, and National Park Service formed a tactical team and forced entry into the home. Gonzalez-Ballesteros was not located in the residence, but the firearm was located and seized. The lock downs and evacuations were lifted at 9:42 AM. Gonzalez-Ballesteros was apprehended at a family member’s home in Page at 10:23 AM. Gonzalez-Ballesteros was booked into the Coconino County Jail with charges of Domestic Violence-Assault, Domestic Violence-Aggravated Assault, Domestic Violence-Disorderly Conduct, Domestic Violence-Criminal Damage, Domestic Violence-Preventing Use of a Telephone in an Emergency, and Criminal Nuisance. The charges referenced herein are merely accusations and all individuals are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. CONTACT: Page Police Department Public Information Officer Det.

Page PD Officers Complete Tactical Bicycle School PAGE, AZ (November 2, 2018): Two Page Police Department officers completed the Tactical Bicycle School held in Glendale last month. Detective Cody Miller and Officer Robert Napier, along with 21 other officers from agencies from across the state, attended the week-long program, which covered various techniques related to the use of bicycles on patrol. Bike patrol officers are able to go places where regular patrol vehicles can’t go and cover distances not practical for foot patrols. Page PD officers will utilize bike patrols during special events, including festivals, parades, and the annual Balloon Regatta. Det. Miller and Ofc. Napier completed their first bike patrol detail this week, patrolling the busiest streets on the evening of Halloween. The new police substation located in the city park is currently being used as a base for all bike patrol operations. The Page Police Department is continuously working to improve the service we provide to our citizens and will utilize this program to enhance our community policing efforts.

National Domestic Violence Awareness Month PAGE, AZ (October 17, 2018): October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. For many, home is a place of love, warmth, and comfort. It’s somewhere that you know you will be surrounded by care and support, and a nice little break from the busyness of the real world. But for millions of others, home is anything but a sanctuary. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are victims of physical violence by a partner every year. Local resources are available to individuals affected by domestic violence: • Another Way Today Violence Recovery Center, 928-645-5300, www.anotherwaytoday.org • Victim/Witness Services for Coconino County, 928-645-4362, http://www.vwscoconino.org In 2017, the Page Police Department investigated 403 reports of domestic violence. Many more went unreported to police. To help raise awareness for this important cause, a special purple flag is flying at the Page Public Safety Facility throughout the month of October.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month PAGE, AZ (October 11, 2018): This October, the Page Police Department is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women after skin cancer. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. • If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them. • If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often. Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms. Officers from the Page Police Department are wearing pink badge shrouds and a special flag is flying at the Public Safety Facility throughout the month of October to increase awareness for this important cause.
