After a long day, we finally got all the loose cattle rounded up. We are so glad that there were not more serious crashes when the cows ran down I-285 in rush hour. Thanks everyone for being patient with us when we had to shut down the interstate and side streets during our "round-up".

Last week, we welcomed three officers to the Sandy Springs Police family. Officer Creamer came to us from the Cobb County Sheriff's Office and is currently in training. Officers Krumnaker and Vickery completed the academy and will begin field training today. #weareyourSSPD

SSPD Officers donated 20 cases of water, 5 cases of diapers, baby wipes and other household goods to hurricane relief efforts. To all our friends on the coast, we hope for a safe recovery from the flooding.

This information came from the U.S. Attorney's Office regarding a drug dealer who was distributing pills that looked like legitimate prescription medication. The pills were actually laced with fentanyl and led to the death of an individual. “This counterfeit ‘pill peddler’ was a menace to society,” said Robert J. Murphy, the Special Agent in Charge of the DEA Atlanta Field Division. “Pills in the underground drug market are often diluted with dangerous and deadly substances, as was the case in this investigation. Purchasing pills on the street is synonymous to playing Russian roulette, as there’s no quality control or efficacy in the process. The success of this investigation was made possible because of the collaborative efforts between all law enforcement agencies involved and the U.S Attorney’s Office.” - Edward Culton has been arraigned on federal charges of conspiracy to distribute fentanyl, aiding and abetting the distribution of fentanyl, and possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, which resulted in the death of an individual. Culton was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 22, 2018. The success of this investigation was made possible because of the collaborative efforts between all law enforcement agencies involved and the U.S Attorney’s Office.

We are very proud of our officers who serve on the North Metro SWAT team. To the brave officers from John's Creek, Dunwoody, Brookhaven, and Sandy Springs, we salute you.

Join us for a run or walk on Sunday, September 9th and celebrate our Veterans, Ryan Means and remember the Lives lost on 9/11. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2018-rpm-911-race-5k-tickets-47003060419
