Welcome to Spotlight Sunday – a feature introducing you to some of our dedicated employees who work tirelessly behind the scenes in our 911 center. This week, we are featuring Mike Keeney. Mike got the police “bug” because his brother was a police officer for the City of Atlanta. As a teen, Mike enjoyed listening to police scanners and knew that he wanted to become a communications officer, so he went to work for the City of Atlanta. After retiring, he still could not get the job out of his system. Mike came to Roswell after hearing positive feedback from his friends about our communications center. He has now been with our department for 14 years. Mike enjoys the comradery and friendships that he has made with his fellow communications officers. He enjoys hanging out with his friends and playing trivia. He prides himself on having a very good memory, so we suspect that he’s a trivia wizard. Mike hopes to travel to Ireland and Italy someday. Thank you for visiting our 911 Employee Spotlight post. These are the professionals who take control of a situation when you dial 9-1-1. The job of a dispatcher can be very stressful, yet it can be rewarding knowing that they have devoted themselves to help a person in a time of need. #WeAre911

Roswell 911 SUPERHEROES wishing you a Happy and Safe Halloween! 🎃👻
The Roswell Police Department wants the little trick-or-treaters to have a very safe Halloween! Here are 10 Important Halloween Safety Tips: 1. Try to go out before dark if possible. If it’s after dark, bring a flashlight and walk facing the traffic 2. Never Cross streets without looking both ways. Use sidewalks if possible and do not run between parked cars. 3. Wear costumes that fits, and that glows when lights shine on them. (parents can buy reflective tape at a local store). Never walk near lit candles or luminaries – be sure to wear flame resistant costumes. 4. If you wear a mask, make sure you can see and hear well…best to paint your face with makeup…it’s more fun and safer than wearing a mask. 5. Do not cross lawns because unseen objects or uneven ground may trip you and cause you to fall. 6. Never go up to a house that does not have a light on. It’s best, to have a preset route - only stopping at houses or apartment buildings where there are people you know. Unfortunately, there are sex offenders out in the communities. You can find out where they are living by visiting: https://gbi.georgia.gov/georgia-sex-offender-registry to plan accordingly. 7. Never play bad tricks on people by destroying their property, cars, and mailboxes. 8. Never go into a strangers house, always let them bring the treats to you at the door. 9. Never eat anything that is given to you until you get home and let your parents inspect it! Eat only factory wrapped treats – Avoid homemade treats unless you know the person well. 10. If a child is old enough to go out without a parent, always discuss their route and a set a firm time to expect them to return home. We also want to remind drivers to be extra careful and slow down – it’s dark and kids are going to be all around. As always, report any suspicious behavior by calling 911

Welcome to Spotlight Sunday – a feature introducing you to some of our dedicated employees who work tirelessly behind the scenes in our 911 center. Cindi grew up around Law Enforcement and had known from an early age that she wanted to be a Communications Officer. Nine years ago, a friend of hers told her that Roswell had an opening, and she applied for the job. One of her most memorable 911 calls was when a lady called to say that an armed man broke in her house. Cindi instructed the caller to hide in a closet and cover herself with clothing and remain quiet. After an overnight stand-off, S.W.A.T. officers apprehended the suspect and rescued the woman from the closet. Many people do not know that Cindi can actually drive a tractor and work a backhoe, but she would rather be relaxing during her off-time. Cindi, a family oriented person, moved to her house in order to be next to her parents and cousin's house – her family is very important to her.

Councilwoman Marie Willsey and her cute dog Buddy stopped by the drug take-back event today. She witnessed Officer Lisa Holland, with the help of Drug Enforcement Administration - DEA agents, collect 489 pounds of prescription and nonprescription medications. WellStar North Fulton Hospital partnered with us to collect 185 pounds of needles! We appreciate the great turnout. If you missed the event and still have drugs to drop off, stop by our police department. We have a drop box in our lobby that is available to you Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM.
Chief Grant was very impressed with this young lady who made an appointment with him. Ella’s grandfather, Alan, sent us this photo and a note which read, “Just a simple Thank You from my granddaughter Ella, wife Claudia and myself for taking time out of your busy schedule this past Wednesday to visit and hear Ella’s concerns about the crosswalks in our neighborhood."
We participate with our local schools for Red Ribbon Week - October 23-31. The National Red Ribbon Campaign started in 1985 when DEA Special Agent, Enrique Camarena, was murdered. Camarena's sacrifice for the fight against drugs angered parents and the youth, and the nation mourned the loss of a hero. They began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction caused by drugs in America. We hope that you can join us in this awareness campaign by talking with your kids regularly about the dangers of drugs.
Welcome to Spotlight Sunday – a feature introducing you to some of our dedicated employees who work tirelessly behind the scenes in our 911 center. This week, we wanted to introduce Asunta Ross. Fourteen years ago, Asunta wanted to become a communications officer because she saw the position as being rewarding. She received employment offers at other metro Atlanta communication centers, but she chose to work for Roswell because she appreciated the “family-like warmth” of Roswell’s environment. When asked about any calls that stood out to her over the years, Asunta recollected a time when an elderly man called 911 because he fell. Instead of being frightened, Asunta was surprised when the gentleman’s conversation turned comedic about his predicament. He continued to make light of his situation while she listened to his jokes until help arrived. Afterward, Asunta was humbled to learn that the man had mustered up all his strength to activate 911, but he remained positive throughout their conversation. Asunta hopes to continue making a positive impact with each 911 call she receives. Thank you for visiting our 911 Employee Spotlight post.

We are deeply saddened to learn that Officer Antwan Toney was killed in the line of duty today. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and the men and women of the Gwinnett County Police Department.
GOT DRUGS? Time to clean out that medicine cabinet and bring your prescription and non-prescription drugs to the Roswell Recycling Center on Saturday, October 27th from 10AM-2PM.

SCAM ALERT - Criminals are always thinking of ways to scam you out of your hard-earned money. We want you to be aware of the pine straw scam. People posing as landscapers show up at your house and offer you a great deal to lay down pine straw. After spreading the pine straw, they inflate the cost that was originally quoted. One excuse may be that your yard required more bails, so now you feel forced to pay the extra money. You can avoid this scam by doing some research. Never deal with a person that comes to your house unsolicited. Do some research and get referrals. If you live in Roswell and have been a victim of this scam, call us to make a report. (770) 640-4100 *** Please feel free to SHARE this post with your neighbors, family and friends because this is not isolated just to the Roswell area ***
Welcome to Spotlight Sunday – a feature introducing you to some of our dedicated employees who work tirelessly behind the scenes in our 911 center. Meet Gina Grana. Two and a half years ago, she decided to apply with our police department after receiving a Criminal Justice degree. She stumbled across a job posting for our department, and applied for the communication officer position because she thought that the job sounded interesting. When going through the interview process, she enjoyed meeting the people who worked here, and immediately knew that this job would be a perfect fit for her. In her spare time, Gina enjoys bowling with her husband and friends and hopes one day to visit Iceland! Thank you for visiting our 911 Employee Spotlight post.
