Muncie Police Department’s Tyronda Benning is currently at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. The officers are in week 4 of ILEA. This morning the recruits ran outside as part of their workout. Good luck Tyronda!

Muncie officers attended the Red Ribbon Community Breakfast this morning. Sergeant Chris Kirby invited the DRE (Drug Recognition Expert) officers to attend the breakfast with him. These officers are responsible for getting approximately 80 drug impaired drivers off of local streets in 2018.

Officer Powell stands proudly beside his police cruiser. The Muncie Police Department altered Powell’s vehicle to help spread breast cancer awareness. For many, this is also symbolic for loved ones who have or are currently fighting breast cancer. If you see Officer Powell’s vehicle around town feel free to take a picture with the car and share it below 👇🚔👇🚔👇🚔

Last night officers Wegener, Duckham, and Brown graduated the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. These officers spent the last 15 weeks training in various aspects of law enforcement.

Officers working Labor Day were pleasantly surprised to find this pasta buffet waiting for them in the uniform roll call room today. An extremely nice gesture from the Muncie Olive Garden. Thank you for the great food and for thinking of us!

ROBBERY: We are asking for the community’s assistance in this investigation. Anyone with information on this incident please contact Sgt. Sloan 765-747-4867 ext. 263. On 8-23-18 at approximately 9:50AM, the Metro PCS store located at 3618 S. Chandler in Muncie was robbed. The suspect was a black male 18-25 years old, approximately 6'00 tall, and weighing approximately 150 lbs. The black jacket the suspect is wearing in the picture was recovered by officers. The suspect was armed with a handgun and it is believed that he was dropped off and picked up by the vehicle in the attached photo. The vehicle appears to be a Chevy Suburban or GMC Yukon and looks to be gold-ish and white in color.

K-9 Bosco enjoyed a bath during his 3 day weekend. Bosco is noticeably smaller than his K-9 coworkers!

The night shift enjoyed ice cream cones during roll call tonight for National Ice Cream Day. A great way to start a hot shift!

More good news! Officer Ashton and his family decided to officially adopt Duke! We think Duke fits right in with his new family! Officer Ashton went to Muncie Animal Care & Services to complete the adoption paperwork. Duke is no longer a shelter dog! Everyone that met Duke this week loved him. Duke is pictured below with Officer Ashton’s family. Duke is in the middle!

Last Friday was a tough shift for some of our officers. Day shift officers were dispatched to an unconscious child. Officer Duncan arrived on scene in under 3 minutes from the time of dispatch. Other officers and EMS/Fire arrived on scene shortly after. The two year old girl was barely breathing and in very bad shape. MPD officers not on scene, as well as Ball State University Police Department blocked intersections as Delaware County Emergency Medical Services transported the child to Ball Memorial Hospital. The child was then taken by helicopter to Riley Hospital. Officers left work that day unsure of the child's condition. The family stayed in contact with Sergeant Kirby giving him daily updates. Today, officers involved in the incident were invited back to the residence. These officers were excited to spend a little time with Lizzie and see that she's doing well! Left to right: Sgt. Kirby, Officer Small, Officer Duncan, K-9 Officer Skaggs, and Investigator Pierce

Duke is still having a good week! One of our officers said he’s seriously considering the idea of adding Duke to his family!

Yesterday the Muncie Police Department and Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie started a week long program. Each organization decided to foster a Muncie Animal Care & Services dog for the week. Pictured below is our dog, Duke. This week Duke will go to work each day at the Muncie PD (office jobs only 😉). Duke will then go home each evening with an MPD family. The Club’s dog, Rambo will do the same at the Boys and Girls Club. We will share more about Duke’s week on this page! For more information on adopting Duke, Rambo, or fostering a shelter dog please contact the shelter!
