Dixon Police Department News

It was Trick or Treat time at the Dixon Police Department. Today was the annual Downtown Dixon Business Association’s Halloween celebration. The Dixon Police Officer’s Association donated bags and bags of candy for the Dixon Police Department’s cadets to pass out to all of the youngsters in costumes. McGruff the Crime Dog took time out from fighting crime to visit with some of our trick-or-treaters. Thank you to everyone who participated in making this event happen this year. We look forward to next year. Have a happy and safe Halloween.

Here in Dixon, we are always supporting our local artists, and at the same time, we are always looking to help make people’s dreams come true. It’s our great privilege to honor Dixon’s own Jason Bounds, local performance artist, and comedian. Banksy has nothing on this hometown hero, and we wanted to share his latest work with you. On Sunday, Dixon Police responded to calls for a vehicle parked at Safeway covered in blood (see pics). There was damage to the windshield and a tremendous amount of blood across the car. It looked like something from a Stephen King novel. Well, as you can imagine, seeing a car with damage and covered in blood generated quite a stir. Officers and detectives started calling local hospitals, surrounding police agencies, local media, and anyone we could think of to see if there was a dead or dying body associated with the Car O’Blood. So we towed it, in case it was evidence, and underneath found ammunition! Bonus. Well after all our efforts to make sure someone wasn’t dying in a ditch or lying in the morgue or hospital, we pieced together Mr. Bounds, the owner of the art, had covered it in fake blood as a joke. Then abandoned it in the Safeway parking lot. Because that’s funny, see? Bloody car, ammunition, the unsettling sense of someone maybe losing their life, tying up police resources, that’s funny right there, we don’t care who you are. Detectives performed presumptive blood tests and confirmed the blood was not human or animal. Hahaha. Get it?? Fake blood. H-I-L-arious. We tip our hat to Mr. Jason Bounds (https://www.facebook.com/jason.bounds.18), the Dixon Police Department’s October 2018 nominee for Coolest Guy in Dixon. Thank you so much for letting us be a small part of your art and creative process. We’re honored to help you achieve the fame you desired in becoming Internet Famous. Well played, sir! You can pick up your art at the police impound lot; please make sure you bring cash for the impound fees, registration fees, and vehicle release fees. Because hey, we’re pretty funny, too.

DIXON POLICE ARREST SECOND SUBJECT IN HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION On July 21, 2018, Dixon Police responded to the 1300 block of Bello Drive for a report of a shooting that just occurred. When officers arrived, they determined an adult male had been shot and killed and a second adult male had been shot and sustained serious injuries. The surviving victim was transported to a local hospital and survived. Dixon Police previously arrested a juvenile suspect in the case and conducted an extended investigation which resulted in the identification of additional suspects. On Wednesday, October 24, 2018, Dixon Police, with the assistance of the Solano County District Attorney’s Office, obtained an arrest warrant for Lucas Davis (20) of Sacramento for violation of penal code section 245, Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Detectives located and arrested Davis in Sacramento where he was arrested without incident. Davis was booked into Solano County Jail. Although an arrest has been made, Dixon police still consider this an active investigation and are working to identify and charge additional suspects. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Dixon Police Department at 707-678-7070.

Six more days till Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, six more days till Halloween, Silver Shamrock! It’s almost time again, Halloween time. The one time a year when we find it perfectly normal for our children to dress up in costumes and take free candy from strangers. Sounds creepy when you say it like that, don’t it? Anyhoo… Feel free to stop by the least creepy place to get free candy, the police station! From 9-5 we will be offering candy to kids and childlike adults at the station, sponsored by the Dixon Police Officers’ Association, who spent their own money (see pic). Go cops. Yeah… Part of a fun Halloween includes NOT taking an unanticipated trip to the emergency room, police station, or jail. In any order. We want all Dixonites to have a safe, fun, and disaster-free time. How, you ask? Let us offer some tips for a safe and sane Halloween. First, the razor-blade-in-the-apple thing that scared the crap out of us growing up is an urban legend. Mostly. There are some very limited cases of tampering, but the scene from Halloween II isn’t normal (Google it with the lights off. We dare you.) What it DID do, however, was kickstart the common sense practice of inspecting your kid's candy before they eat it. Remember the creepy taking free candy from strangers? Well at least LOOK at it before your children consume it. Or call a police officer to look at it, and for fee of 10% of the total volume of candy inspected we will examine it for you. We will weigh the candy, so don’t try and short us. We prefer Sweet Tarts. Here’s another one, don’t be the one to leave the room and say, “I’ll be right back,” or odds are you’ll be killed. We don’t have empirical data on this, but movies suggest this is a truism. Also, teens, don’t engage any slap-and-tickle, or related activities. Popular culture suggests you will be a target of a deranged, probably masked, killer. And we don’t have enough polices to chase down every Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees in Dixon. And hey, we watch movies too, so be careful trying to play pranks on the police. It can get, well, explosive. Costume Safety To help ensure adults and children have a safe holiday, the American Academy of Pediatrics has compiled a list of Halloween safety tips. Before Halloween arrives, be sure to choose a costume that won't cause safety hazards. • All costumes, wigs and accessories should be fire-resistant • Avoid masks, which can obstruct vision • If children are allowed out after dark, fasten reflective tape to their costumes and bags, or give them glow sticks • When buying Halloween makeup, make sure it is nontoxic and always test it in a small area first • Remove all makeup before children go to bed to prevent skin and eye irritation When They're on the Prowl • A responsible adult should accompany young children on the neighborhood rounds • If your older children are going alone, plan and review a route acceptable to you • Agree on a specific time children should return home • Teach your children never to enter a stranger's home or car • Instruct children to travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and stick with their friends • Tell your children not to eat any treats until they return home • Children and adults are reminded to put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don't run, across the street Safety Tips for Motorists The National Safety Council offers these additional safety tips for parents – and anyone who plans to be on the road during trick-or-treat hours: • Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs • Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully • At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing • Discourage new, inexperienced drivers from driving on Halloween This ain’t your pappy’s Halloween, so we know some of you are lamenting you can’t let your spawn run loose all night. We get it. We used to walk 12 miles to school in the snow, too. And these punk kids with their rock music and complicated hair. But this is the world we live in, and these are the hands we're given. Use them and let's start trying to make it a place worth living in. Have a safe, sane, Happy Halloween!

Head's up, peep this.

Bring out ya dope! It's time again, time to get them prescription drugs outta ya house. And we need you to do it safely, so we're sponsoring a drug take-back day, along with every other law enforcement agency in Solano County. The agency who takes in the most unwanted (prescription) drugs gets a free Sony Walkman, AND WE WANT THE WALKMAN. Don't judge. Why dispose of prescription drugs safely, you ask? Well we asked our residents for stories of their pets or animals getting stoned or high on UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. We've attached some of their photos, and these are their stories. Meet Rusty the Goat, by all accounts a happy-go-lucky goat who was way into goat things. Like, waaaaayyyy into goat things. Well Rusty got his hands on some oxy, and his owner snapped this pic. Look at Rusty. So high. Rusty was so high he thought he was a dog, and tried to chase a mail truck down West Adams. You ever see a goat try and run? It’s like every limb is out for itself. It ended with Rusty face-planting on the asphalt. Rusty ain’t been the same since. This is Scraps. Scraps got hold of some diazepam. Sure, he looks hella happy in the pic, but now he’s paranoid. Like, uber-paranoid. Every time a car backfires Scraps pees himself and runs into the garage door. That dog ain’t right. And finally, there’s Mittens. Mittens got himself some Ambien which was left on a nightstand. He then posed for this pic while he stared into his owner’s security camera. Whatever Mittens saw staring into the void took six of his nine lives. Was it worth it, Mittens? WAS IT? So be a mensch, bring your unwanted prescription drugs to the Dixon Police Department on Saturday October 27th from 9:00am-3:00pm and dispose of them safely, securely and for free. If we can get Rusty or Mittens out of their houses they can sign autographs. Think of the children. Why won’t anyone think of the children?? See you there…

We’d like to give a shout to Bert & Ernie's Preschool & Infant Center here in Dixon for letting us come by and meet some really cool kids. Some of our officers and cadets had a chance to hang out with some of the neatest kids in town, as they hosted us today for some thoughtful debate (which flavor Playdoh makes the best pancakes? Are four teeth a sign of old age?) and fun. We got to jaw at them about how the police are your friends, we’re here to help, and to protect them. And they shared tips on sharing, coloring, and an esoteric discussion about the duality of man. Ponderous, man. Ponderous. So thanks to all the kids and teachers who made us feel welcome and shared part of their day with us. With everything going on in the country right now, this is an important reminder we serve a great city. Sgt. Brad Harms made sure this happened, and we’re proud to have him. Even if he lost two of three games of chess. We think they had a ringer. Happy happy joy joy!

Hey, man. Got any drugs you don’t want? Hey, Dave’s not here man. Once upon a time, there was a counter-culture comedy team named “Cheech and Chong.” Richard Marin and Thomas Chong rose to fame with an act that extolled marijuana use. “Marijuana” is what old people called cannabis before it went mainstream. Progress. Anyhoo, Cheech and Chong based most of their act on getting and using marijuana (pronounced ma-riˈwa-na), which as you may have heard, is now a legal, regulated business in California. So there’s that. But we digress. The drugs we want are the OTHER kind, the kind you may have in your medicine cabinet and don’t need anymore. The kind a kid can find and eat without knowing what they’re for. The kind you would otherwise flush. Those we can take. We have a mailbox-looking vault in our lobby to take in unwanted prescription drugs, which can be safely disposed of. And rather than holding quarterly events, this will be open all the time, so we can offer to get rid of your prescription drugs with no risk to you or yours. It’s there now, as a service to the people of our community. Please don’t flush or throw away prescription drugs. They enter the water table, and while the idea of a bunch of stoned fish bumping their heads together SEEMS funny (okay, it is, but only notionally funny, not for reals) we don’t want raccoons becoming hooked on dope. Next thing you know raccoon addicts are robbing squirrels for nut money and the whole system comes crashing down. Do you want to see what happens when a stray dog gets your discarded Viagra? What kind of monster are you? No matter what Finding Nemo may have said, all drains do NOT lead to the ocean. So please, for nature’s sake, for the balance of power in our ecosystem, please bring your unwanted prescription drugs to the police department lobby where you can drop them in the vault. It’s easy, it’s free, and Mother Earth and her Animal Kingdom will thank you. We can take prescription and over the counter medications. We can NOT take needles, lotions or liquids, inhalers, aerosol cans, thermometers or hydrogen peroxide. If you have illegal drugs, bring those by too. We can take them right off your hands, man. Dave’s not here, but we are. Oh, here’s a picture of Cheech and Chong in the 70s and today. We included it as a reminder that time makes fools of us all.

Oye! Don't forget tomorrow is Buzz with the Fuzz, a chance to get your caffeine fix, chat with the polices (plural for police; one of us would be poli) and complain about THE PUNK KIDS WHO PLAY ON YOUR LAWN. We've agreed to be a captive audience to discuss whatever police matters you want, or non-police matters that do NOT involved politics. Stop by and grab some refreshingly smart coffee, sponsored by our hosts, McDonalds. And like McDonalds, we love to see you smile. It's from 8am-10am at 1410 Ary Lane. Don't be a snob. Come say hello. First 10 participants get an item from the Evidence Grab Bag O'Fun*. Will it be a bag of dope?? A pistol with the serial numbers filed off? A collection of rubber heads?? Who knows!! That's what makes it so exciting!!! See you there! (*police may substitute Happy Meal toys for police evidence items)

DO YOU RECOGNIZE THIS BIKE? Do you want to ride your bicycle, you want to ride your bike? I SAID, do you want to ride your bicycle, you want to ride your bike? Well, if you see your bike here, we’re sorry, it’s gone. It is a dream that once was, a fleeting vision of two-wheeled bliss which has fallen away from view like milkweed blowing across a dry prairie (is good, no?) The Dixon Police Department, with approval from the City Council, has donated 57 bicycles which have come into our possession over the last couple of years. Bikes that once provided joy and innocence, whose promise and potential was cut short and relegated to a dusty, sad police evidence storage area. #SAD In cooperation with the California Department of Corrections, we have sent them for a second chance at life to the California Medical Facility where they will be repaired, cleaned up and donated to kids who need a bike and some good in their lives. The program helps inmates do something constructive with their time, and kids who need it a glimmer of something good in the world. BUT, we’d also like to really get your bike back to YOU when it’s lost or stolen, and we come across it. How you say? How can we achieve this marvel of law enforcement prowess? I’m glad you asked, young fella. REGISTER IT. It’s free, it’s easy, and it’s oh so much fun. Just go to our website, and click on the, wait for it, REGISTER MY BIKE. Then fill out the serial number, add a picture of it, and PRESTO. If we find it, we will return it to you. And all the happiness and joy that comes with it. And it’s free, of course. So please, register your bike and give us a chance to reunite the two of you. ‘Cause we’ve got a bike, you can ride it if you like, it’s got a basket, a bell that rings, and things to make it look good. And we’ll give back to you… https://www.frontlinepss.com/dixonpolice

‘Sup Dixon. Since everything has to have a day now, why not National Coffee with a Cop? Sponsored by the National Coffee Association (“If you ain’t shakin we ain’t makin”), Coffee with a Cop Day is now a thing. So rather than fight the power, we embrace the madness. And since it’s a chance to meet-N-greet the Denizens of Dixon, why not? Seriously, why? Nothing?? Okay, then let us dunk. But Coffee with a Cop is so played. So we’re workshopping other ideas, Buzz with the Fuzz? Dish with the Comish? Dine with the Swine? (that one skews to a younger demo.) Eat on the Beat? They can’t all be gems, you know. Whatever you call it, we fittin to do it. On Wednesday, October 3rd, from 8am-10am, we will be at the McDonald’s at 1410 Ary Lane to entertain all your wildest police questions, have a chat, do shots, whatever it takes to grow closer to you, the fine upstanding peoples of our burg. As a possible special guest, Mr. Randy Watson, also known as “Joe the Policeman” from the “What’s Going Down” episode of “That’s My Momma” is a hard maybe to attend. You won’t want to miss Randy (if he shows). He’s a true entertainer. Like Randy says, the children ARE our future. And for the first 15 attendees we are offering a Get Out of Jail Free card for municipal ordinance violations. The cards entitle the bearer to one free mulligan for offenses against the city code*. So come on out and meet your Dixon Police. We’d like a chance to chat with you, answer your questions, and just jaw jack with no particular purpose. We hope you can stop by and new McDonald’s. With the new digital ordering system, you’ll feel like you’re eating in The Matrix. These are truly great times we’re living in. COME SEE US! (* card not valid in California)

Well hey howdy hey there, neighbor. It’s your local police department. We wanted to chat witcha about being a good neighbor, and some things we here in the code compliance section are going to be doing to try and keep Dixon an A#1 top-flight place to live. Part of being a good neighbor is making sure you keep your property in decent shape. Just like our friend Mister Rogers, we want to be good neighbors. And have great neighborhoods. Can you say “good neighbors”? Yes, you can! That’s great. B-e-a-utiful. Remember our friend Mister Rogers? If you’re reading Facebook, odds are you do, since younger kids have abandoned this faster than rocket full of monkeys once they found out we were using it. If you are a young person reading this, GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY. Punk kids. Anyhoo, remember when Mister Rogers visited the Neighborhood of Make-Believe? Our research suggests 64% of you are smiling when you read that, meaning you DO remember. And the rest of you have our sympathy. So, in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, we would see the residents, who were good neighbors. King Friday (the XIII, to be exact), Lady Elaine, Queen Saturday, they were all there living in harmony and happiness. Es good, yes? Yes. Part of that harmony came from the fact they were always observant of the Neighborhood of Make Believe’s Code Compliance Division, primarily monitored by Cornflake S. Pecially and Purple Panda. Don’t believe us? Watch the shows on the Internets. Those two were definitely working for The Man. Now, imagine if Henrietta Pussycat allowed her front yard to fill up waist-high with dead weeds. And Daniel Striped Tiger had an ’86 El Camino on blocks in front of his crib. Oh, and if HJ Elephant, III had engine and transmission parts all over his front yard. Es no good. They would be BAD neighbors. If that happened, King Friday would expect Cornflake and Panda to get right on it. Back in Dixonland, our Code Compliance team is trying to do just that. Unlike the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, we have administrative citations as our only weapon to help keep Dixon in tip-top shape. So we wanted to be good neighbors ourselves and send out a message, please, pretty please, make sure your property is compliant with the law. Because we are going to start, like for reals this time, enforcing the provisions of the municipal code. And we don’t want to hassle people, we don’t want to fine people, we aren’t trying to raise money this way. We just want folks to be good neighbors. We even changed the name from Code Enforcement to Code Compliance. See??? We’re trying to make this work! We get there are some people who think, “this is MY house, I can hang an ATV from a tree (true story), put a toilet on my front porch (true story) and park my truck on my front lawn (true story).” Well, no, actually, you can’t. This isn’t an infringement on your rights, it really isn’t. If you subscribe to the social contract theory, as opined by Hobbes, we sacrifice the right to do ANYTHING we want when we live in groups in exchange for communal benefits and state protection. How’s THAT for dropping a knowledge bomb on ya, son?!? Noice. In this construct, we all agree to adhere to certain rules, which include NOT living in a tent on your front lawn, or in a VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER. Now, as a representative democracy, you can convince your elected officials (or become one yourself) and change the ordinances of the City of Dixon. But until we do, we, as your police department, have to execute the playbook we’re given. This includes making sure the code is followed. So here’s a link to the code. Most common problems? Expired, inoperable or dismantled vehicles. On the street, they get towed. But they’re not cool, even in your driveway. The other most common? Having a yard that looks like a junkyard threw up on it. Building materials, engine parts, weeds, and the like. https://www.codepublishing.com/CA/Dixon/ As we get started, we wanted to let people know as best we can, so when the notices start as few people are surprised as possible. And we plan on pumping out as many warnings as we can, since this isn’t about punishment, it’s about compliance. Help us help you, keeping Dixon a great place to live. And property values high. Be like the Platypus family, not Old Goat. Don’t be the Goat, man. Baaaddddddddd.

Upon arrival, officers learned the suspect, Shayne Allen Pryde (42) of Dixon had forced entry to a residence and fled the scene. Witnesses at the scene were able to help officers identify the suspect. Pryde was located in his residence next door, and when contacted challenged officers with a butcher knife and barricaded himself inside his residence.
