Contact: Sgt.

The participating officers have chosen to purchase the badges with their own money to support this cause. Beginning a couple of years ago, the department began participating in “No Shave November” to help raise awareness for cancer by growing out their facial hair during the month of November. Sgt. Billy Adams says, “The pink badge campaign is just one more way we can get involved with our community on an issue that affects so many of our citizens. The badges are sure to spark conversation between officers and residents, which is one of the main goals. We are proud to help spread awareness and show our support to those affected by such a terrible disease. As a department, our officers come in to contact and/or are seen out in the public by thousands of citizens each day. If even one of those citizens is prompted to go get a screening because of this campaign, then that’s a success”. In addition to helping raise awareness, donations will also be accepted. All funds received will go the city of Westfield’s Relay for Life team. Checks can be made out to the American Cancer Society and dropped off or mailed to the Westfield Police Department, ATTN: Sgt. Billy Adams.

Within one hour of the theft, the victim reported that the stolen card was used several times at nearby retail stores including Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart and Bed, Bath and Beyond; initial estimates place the loss at approximately $5000.00. During the subsequent investigation it was determined that the individual in the attached image (see line 1) was the one responsible for the theft/fraudulent use of the card. On September 19th, 2018 a second female victim reported that while shopping at the same location, her wallet was taken from her purse by an unknown individual. A short time after this theft, the victim indicated that high dollar purchases using one of her credit cards were made at a nearby Best Buy. When investigators reviewed video surveillance footage, they were able to determine that a female matching in description to the suspect from the incident on August 25th was responsible for the fraudulent purchase at the Best Buy. While inside Hobby Lobby and Best Buy, the suspect female was accompanied by another female. If you can identify any of these individuals or know of other incidents where they are responsible, please contact the Westfield Police Department at 317-804-3054 or the Hamilton County Communications Center at 317-773-1300.

Yesterday, officers of the Westfield Police department participated in the Beyond the Badge 5K Run/Walk - "A Time to Say Thanks!", placing third in the public safety division. The Beyond the Badge 5K Run & Walk provides a unique opportunity for members of the community and those in public safety to come together and compete as a tribute to those that have fallen in the line of duty. This event combines the reverence of an opening memorial ceremony with the excitement of the competitive 5K race and the fun of the non-competitive fitness walk. This was the 17th year for the event, which supports the Jason Baker Public Safety Scholarship fund and provides assistance to Indiana high school seniors intending to pursue careers in public safety at an Indiana college or university. The fund was established in honor of Marion County Sheriff's Deputy Jason M. Baker who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty on September 17, 2001.

Thanks to the Westfield Intermediate students who wrote us these nice letters on 9/11!
