Public Notice from Department of Justice North Georgia District

Big, tough Motorcycle Cop Goes Soft Lt. Steve Cohen took time away from his duties as the Uniform Patrol Division Commander to visit a class of pre-K children at Johnston Elementary School where he read a riveting story and passed out badge-style stickers. Chief Mike Carswell said, "Lt. Cohen is one of many officers who spend time with children. It's not uncommon to see our officers regularly making time for children during their work week. I always wonder who has the most fun when they visit? The officer or the children." What? You don't think that's the duty of a police officer? It's a duty greater than we can express. Don't believe us? Ask the children.

Patriot Day September 11, 2001. We remember... Today, officers from the Holly Springs PD joined our fellow-countrymen at the Patriot Day memorial in Canton for a remembrance of why we are a great nation. What we didn't see - hot dogs, BBQ, swimming parties, fireworks, parades or vendors. What we did see - the red, white and blue, music, stories, crying, hand-shakes and hugs, resolute spirits, soldiers, lawmen, firemen, salutes, hands over hearts, families who lost loved ones at the twin towers and grateful neighbors. Our own Chief Mike Carswell delivered the "Moment of Silence" presentation. Well done. We're not sure what else to say. We remember...and will never forget.

Thanks to Tom and Connie Gentle for the great BBQ you provided to our hungry officers. The food was great but more important was your remembrance and kindness to us. Thanks again and come see us.

Who Could Say "No"? Not these hungry troops. Thanks to the Holly Springs United Methodist Church for inviting our officers to a summer cookout. Great food but especially great people.

Happy Traveler Notice Hwy. 5 is open again. Rabbit Hill Rd will remain closed for through travelers. Construction in the area is continuing - please drive carefully and watch for construction activity.

Good Samaritans Do Live Among Us Remember the bicycle that was stolen from a young Walmart employee? (see previous post) The young man used the bike as his sole transportation to work. Our detectives made an arrest, thanks to your assistance, but were not able to locate the missing bicycle. Well, we have good news. Look at this pic. Det. April Van Alstine is delivering a brand new bike to that young man. All of this made possible by a kindhearted military vet whose compassion for others was put into action. His heart went to his feet and put into action what many of us only talk about. The young man was amazed and thrilled that a stranger would care for him and his simple need of keeping a job. We say, "Well Done Good Samaritan!"

Lt. Steve Cohen Receives FBI/LEEDA Trilogy Award Lt. Steve Cohen was recognized and congratulated Monday evening by Holly Springs Chief of Police Mike Carswell for receipt of the FBI/Law Enforcement Executive Development Association (LEEDA) Trilogy Award. The FBI/LEEDA program brings the best executive level training, innovations and technology to law enforcement throughout the world. Lt. Cohen completed three intense training segments to earn the award: Supervisor Leadership Institute, Command Leadership Institute, and Executive Leadership Institute. Chief Carswell said, “Shaking hands and saying, ‘Good Job’ just doesn’t seem enough for the sacrifice and commitment Lt. Cohen gave to earn the Trilogy Award. Officers like him don’t do this for the handshaking; they do it because of their blue pride. And that makes us proud to have him on-board”. We could not agree more. (Pictured are Lt. Cohen, his wife Krista, Chief Mike Carswell)
