TIP OF THE HAT TUESDAY: APD SGT. WHEELER Today, we at the Denver Police Department are tipping our hats to Sergeant Nick Wheeler of the Albuquerque Police Department in New Mexico. Last Wednesday, schools across the country held their annual Halloween costume parade. Sergeant Wheeler volunteered to help during one at a local elementary school, when he overheard one of the students trying to comfort another student who did not have a costume. Sergeant Wheeler learned that the boy’s mother could not afford to get him a costume this year and jumped in to help. The good sergeant told the boy to go with him to his cruiser, where he quickly suited the boy up in his tactical vest and Kevlar helmet. It wasn’t much, but with Sergeant Wheeler’s quick thinking, the boy got to be a police officer for the day. This is too sweet. Hats tipped… *Photo courtesy of APD’s Facebook page – Go LIKE ‘em!

SCAM ALERT SATURDAY: PIRATE PEDDLER Last month, officers responded to the 1300 block of S. Milwaukee Street on a report of a disturbance. When officers arrived on scene, the victim explained that the suspect came to his door and claimed to be selling magazines. The victim agreed to purchase a subscription and wrote the suspect a check. After the suspect left, the victim researched the company that the suspect claimed to be working for and learned that it was a scam. The victim then confronted the suspect, who was a few doors down and explained that he wanted his check back. The suspect initially refused, but after the victim said he was calling the police, the suspect threw a check at the victim and left the area. The check the suspect threw at the victim did not belong to him. Friends, door-to-door salespeople are not uncommon. Remember that legitimate peddlers must be wearing a photo ID on the outside of their clothing, and they should also carry their licenses at all times for inspection and review.

WALK A MILE Officers around Denver have recently started participating in the Walk A Mile Program. Designed to help officers better engage with residents, officers are getting out of their patrol cars and walking neighborhoods with the people that live in them. Together, they are identifying security issues and inviting people to take part in neighborhood watch programs. It's was during one of these very walks that Officer Jim Lopez met young Alec, who is pictured here. So committed to neighborhood safety, Alec dressed up in some pretty sweet digs to help Officer Lopez traverse the neighborhood.

TIP OF THE HAT TUESDAY: MBPD OFC. ALLSTON Today, we at the Denver Police Department are tipping our hats to Officer Aaron Allston of the Myrtle Beach Police Department in South Carolina. Earlier this month, Officer Allston was on patrol when he saw a few teenagers tossing around a football. He got out of his patrol car to join the game and noticed that the ball they were playing with was in pretty poor shape. A week later, he saw one of the teenagers again and stopped him to gift him a new football. The teen explained that he didn’t have a book bag to carry it in, so Officer Allston personally delivered it to the teen’s home. It was there that he met the young man’s mom who explained that the family had fallen on hard times and the teen didn’t have much in the way of clothes. Officer Allston then rallied his fellow officers around an effort to raise money to help the teen out. With their help, Officer Allston raised more than $300 to take the teen on a shopping spree for new clothes! Fine work, officer. Hats tipped… *Photo courtesy of the MBPD Facebook page – Go LIKE ‘em.
