Orange Park Police Department News

Last night Orange Park Police, Orange Park Fire Department and members of First Baptist Church of Orange Park hosted our first annual Trunk or Treat! We had a blast handing out candy, temporary pirate tattoos, Police and Fire water bottles and much more! Thank you to the community of Orange Park for coming out and enjoying Halloween with us!

Today Officers from OPPD got to spend time with the kids at Orange Park Elementary School for “Touch a Truck Day.” The kids got to see a police car and some of the gear our officers use to help keep the town safe every day.

Found this pretty girl in the 1500 block of Gano Ave! Help us get her back home - call 904-264-5555!!!!

Excellent proactive police work done by OPPD! In the early morning hours of 10/22/18, Blue Night Shift Patrol Officers discovered a man in a vehicle parked behind a closed business. An investigation led to the seizure of illegal narcotics and a gun. The individual was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, armed trafficking of morphine, possession of more than 20grams of marijuana, two counts of possession of a controlled substance pills, possession of THC resin, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

We would like to give a big thank you to the Sophia Fleming Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution for dropping by today to give us some gift baskets full of cookies and pastries, and more importantly for showing us their support and appreciation for the men and women in blue who serve this great Town. It simply cannot be said enough, we truly are blessed to serve such a great community!

Danny Clark's funeral service with be at 1100 at Jax Memory Gardens on Friday 10/12/18. There will be no viewing. If you would like to speak at the funeral, please contact me at 904-278-3006. Chief Goble

The Orange Park Police Department lost one of our family members yesterday. Danny Clark passed away unexpectedly at his home. He started with OPPD in 1974 as a dispatcher at the age of 17 and became the youngest police officer to work with us at the age of 19. He retired in 2001 and began working with the Clay County branch of the State Attorney's Office where he was still employed. We will miss him deeply because he touched so many of our lives with his humor and smile. Godspeed Danny, we will be praying for your family and we will celebrate your life very soon.

Please join us on Halloween night for some Trunk or Treat fun! Kids from GPE, OPE, and OPJH will have the chance to dunk their Student resource officer in the dunk tank!!! We hope to see you all there!!!

***Orange Park Police Department Media Release *** At 9:42am this morning, officers of the Orange Park Police Department responded to the 600 block of River Road in reference to a possible deceased person in the St. Johns River. Upon arrival, they found a deceased black female in the water. Members of the Orange Park Police Department and Orange Park Fire Rescue were able to remove the deceased from the water. The unidentified female’s remains were transported to the Duval County Medical Examiner’s Office where an autopsy will be completed. At this time, the investigation is still in its very early stages and detectives are working diligently to determine the identity of the individual and cause of death. As the investigation moves forward, we will try to provide updates as soon as practical.

Plant a seed of greatness in our youth. Speak a word of encouragement to someone who needs to hear it. Inspire someone to be a better person. One day you’ll reap a harvest, and your world will become a better place to live. - George Foreman.

Today Officer Claxton, our School Resource Officer at Grove Park Elementary School, got to participate in a team building exercise with students in the 6th grade. The game called “Toxic River” challenges students to use good communication skills and teamwork to overcome obstacles. The SRO program is a great way to not only protect, but also mentor and build relationships with the youth in the community!

Officer Chalker is proud to protect the kids at OPJH.
