Paradise Valley Police Department News

On Blue Wednesday students at lunch were asked, "What do you do with all your extra candy you collect and didn’t like?!" The officer then learned the shocking truth! One student replied he would reluctantly eat it anyways, another said he might feed it to his dog, the last showed some brotherly love as he would crush it into small pieces before gifting it to his younger little brother. What will you do? #PVPD #BlueWednesday

This past month the entire Town of Paradise Valley brought about awareness to the issues surrounding Domestic Violence. Our Town Council Members wore purple pin ribbons during their meetings. Our Mayor’s Domestic Violence Proclamation for the month of October was delivered to our partner with Eve’s Place and CEO, Laura Horsley, during a Town Council Meeting by Mayor Michael Collins and Chief of Police Peter Wingert. We work as a team!

On one Blue Wednesday the Mayor was coming to visit the students and they were all dressed up, were going to sing and play their instruments for him and got to write down one question for him. A mom told me that her son wrote, “Mr. Collins, Do you like “SPOTS”. She had to correct him and he changed it by adding an “R”. He of course meant “SPORTS”. The mom wondered how the Mayor would have answered that one! :) #BlueWednesday #PVPD

On Blue Wednesdays Police Officers and Volunteers visit with students while at school. Its an opportunity to meet us when we're not on an emergency call and ask us questions to what they may have always wanted to know. The conversations we have are meaningful and have a positive impact on our week as much as the children in our community. Its a win-win for all involved! #BlueWednesday #PVPD
