This week marks the 55th anniversary of "Police week". In honor of those who came before us and paid the ultimate sacrifice we will fly our flag at half mass the entire week. Police week originate in 1963 when President John F. Kennedy issued Proclamation 3537, recognizing that from our nation’s very beginnings, “law enforcement officers have played an important role in safeguarding the rights and freedoms which are guaranteed by the Constitution and in protecting the lives and property of our citizens”, noting that Police Week, which occurs during the week of May 15 each year, is intended to honor peace officers who “through their courageous deeds, have lost their lives or have become disabled in the performance of duty.” Kennedy went on to say, "law enforcement officers, past and present, who by their faithful and loyal devotion to their responsibilities have rendered a dedicated service to their communities, and, in so doing, have established for themselves an enviable and enduring reputation for preserving the rights and security of all citizens.”

Huge thanks to Sommer, Allison, and Alex from SABRA Property Management for donating $1000.00 to our our Bike Fund. It is great to see our community partners commitment to safety in our city. Thank you!!

ICYMI: WSB's coverage of the new public safety facility in Brookhaven to connect communities

Thanks to Tyler and Ellie from IberiaBank for taking the time to stop by and show support to our agency.

Congratulations to Sergeant Jacob Kissel for receiving the Positive Police Award. Sergeant Kissel was assigned to his present position in the Support Services Division January 2017. A large part of his duties include overseeing the Community Policing Unit. Sgt. Kissel has demonstrated his commitment to the community we serve by taking it upon himself, not just to oversee procedures, but becoming an active participant in the day to day operations of the unit. He has been instrumental in cultivating new ideas. One idea he brought last fall was to create a departmental mascot using the image of a promotional hand stress toy we were currently handing out. Sergeant Kissel took the idea and made it a reality. His imagination has brought forth our newest Officer, Brookhaven Berry, from a small hand size toy to a full-size figure loved by children and adults alike. Not stopping there, Sergeant Kissel’s ingenuity continued with the creation of a children’s coloring book emphasizing their safety though the use of car safety restraints, proper use of cross walks and bike lanes while using the caricature of his newly created Officer Brookhaven Berry. The idea was picked up by the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety program who partnered with use for state-wide distribution of the coloring books. Sergeant Kissel worked closely in the development of our department Adopt-A-Cop program. He took the lead in coordinating between Brookhaven PD and Our Lady of Assumption Church, which is located in the city of Brookhaven. Through Sergeant Kissel’s governance, we currently have 65 officers paired with no less than three families and or a classroom from the OLA’s school facility. Families and Officers have exchanged cards and well wishes in their continued show of support for Brookhaven Police Officers. In addition to those duties, Sergeant Kissel took the lead in the implementation of our Department’s partnership with Georgia Power to install 44 LPR’s (License Plate Readers) to deter and investigate crime. Sergeant Kissel worked with representatives to ensure every entry point leading into our city is monitored by an LPR. Sergeant Kissel also identified locations for 8 high definition cameras at key points in the city with an additional 15 cameras planned for added security for our city parks. Through these efforts, Sergeant Kissel has been instrumental in continuing to connect Brookhaven residents to their Police Department, a connection more vital now than ever before.

Sgt. Kissel has earned a positive policing award from ASIS International!

This past Friday night, Dunwoody Police Department responded to a reported carjacking in their city. Their officer located the stolen vehicle and the reported “getaway” vehicle. Both vehicles fled from the Dunwoody officer. Dunwoody lost sight of both vehicles in their city. Moments later, Dunwoody received reports of a single vehicle crash in Chamblee at the intersections of East Nancy Creek Drive and Chamblee Dunwoody Road involving the suspects’ “getaway” vehicle. Brookhaven Police units were also notified since this location is on the boarder of Chamblee and Brookhaven. Police officers from Dunwoody, Chamblee, Doraville, DeKalb, and Brookhaven all worked together to conduct an exhaustive search of the area. This search led to the discovery that the suspect had been hiding in a garage on Regency Park Walk that had been left unlocked. The suspect was spotted by the homeowner and fled before officers arrived at that residence. Doraville Police K-9 was used to track the suspect until the police K-9 became exhausted and was relieved by Brookhaven K-9 who was called in from off duty. DeKalb Police provided air support during the search. After more than three hours, it was apparent that the suspect used the cover of darkness to flee the area undetected. Chamblee and Dunwoody Police began getting reports of a suspect matching the description in the area of Savoy Drive in Chamblee. Once the search was terminated, Brookhaven Police maintained a presence in the neighborhood well in to day break Saturday morning. Local media was directed to Dunwoody Police as this was their investigation that we assisted. During the time of this search, other Brookhaven Police officers were responding to reports of entering autos and other incidents in our city that were unrelated to the search from Dunwoody’s carjacking. All in all, these officers had a very busy night and weekend. Hopefully they get their much-needed rest and recovery over their days off today and tomorrow. If anyone has any further questions or feels they should receive additional details, please reach out to Dunwoody Police Department or follow them on Facebook. Dunwoody Police are very active on social media and will likely disseminate information there once it is appropriate for their investigation.

Good morning, On 05/04/2018, at 21:59 hours Brookhaven units responded to the area of Chamblee Dunwoody Rd/ E Nancy Creek Dr in reference to a carjacking suspect who had wrecked out at the intersection. This crime occurred in the city limits of Dunwoody and the vehicle was later located in Brookhaven. Brookhaven responded and was advised that the suspect fled the vehicle on foot into the Brookhaven city limits (Beat 60). The suspect was spotted by a Brookhaven resident and did not appear to be armed at that time. The suspect was described as a black male, dreads, and was wearing a white shirt. This led to the collaboration of several police agencies in an attempt to located and apprehend the suspect. After exhausting all efforts to include a K9 and aerial search it was determined the suspect was able to flee the area undetected. This investigation is still on going therefore some information cannot be released at this time.
