We have had many phone calls asking if the City of Hillview has changed the Halloween day to tonight rather than Wednesday. The city of Hillview is still having Halloween on Wednesday to coincide with Zoneton Fire Department's Halloween event. If the weather is bad, we invite everyone to attend Zoneton Fire Department's event. The City will have a booth handing out candy along with many other organizations. If there is a break in the weather and people want to walk the neighborhood, the police department will be out on overtime detail with lights on to ensure everyone's safety. If people choose, they may hand out candy and trick or treat tonight, however, there will be no police detail, just our normal shift officers. Thanks and have fun.

A post from a mother at last night's event. So glad we got to meet her and her son.

HPD would like to thank those that attended this evening’s event and extend a huge thanks to those helping make this event possible. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and conversing with everyone! #WorkingTogether #CommunityStrong

A lot of great information was provided to our officers this evening, and we are looking forward to tomorrow’s event! #WorkingTogether #CommunityStrong

Hillview Police Department & Zoneton Fire Protection District are at Zoneton Middle School for activities with students to raise money for Operation Santa. #WorkingTogether #CommunityStrong

Our active shooter exercise with Kentucky One health and G4S went Flawlessly! We all walked away from this event with a better understanding of how to deal with this type of situation in a hospital environment. We commend Kentucky One for taking steps necessary to protect their patients and staff and thank G4S for the invitation to train with the hospital. Pioneer News was present and interviewed many people. We will share a link with everyone in the near future with those interviews and many more photos.

We wanted to inform the community of an exercise that we will be conducting so that you will not be alarmed. Kentucky One Hospital has hired a security company (G4S) to assist them with preparing for an active shooter event at their hospital. The Hillview Police Department, Zoneton Fire Department, Bullitt County EMA and EMS will all take part of this exercise. On October the 18th, starting at 6am, you will begin to see emergency equipment and tents set up on the Kentucky One hospital’s parking lot and behind Hester’s Fitness. This is in preparation for the exercise. No sirens will be utilized, you will just notice a large amount of emergency equipment in the area. At approximately 8:15am, the exercise will begin. There will be actors that will roll play an active shooter situation in the parking lot. Blank ammunition will be used to replicate the sound of gunfire and actors will pretend to be hurt. The suspect actor will then enter the building and, at some point, the police will be notified. Hillview Officers and other emergency equipment will respond to the threat with lights and sirens activated. Additional blank ammunition may be used to replicate the sound of gunfire and the suspect actor will be taken into custody. This portion of the exercise should only take 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, we will simulate a thorough search of the building and you may see many people moving about the parking lot. The exercise will be completed by 11:00am Please remember: • This is just an exercise. • Do not attempt to come over and observe the exercise. There will be nothing to see as most of the exercise is conducted inside the hospital. • Blue Lick Rd. and John Harper will not be blocked off and traffic will not be effect except for a short time when Officers respond with lights and sirens (maybe 1 minute). • Kentucky One Hospital is open for services. This exercise will not affect their operation. If needed, you may enter the Northern most entrance (closest to Five Star gas station) and people will be in place to get you where you need to go. Thank for your patience.

17 years ago today, at 8:46 a.m. EST, American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. It wouldn't be clear that our Nation was under attack until 17 minutes later (9:03 a.m. EST) when United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center. At 9:37 a.m. EST, American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the western side of the Pentagon. Only 21 minutes later (9:58 a.m. EST), the South Tower of the World Trade Center collapses just 56 minutes after the impact of United Airlines Flight 175. Southeast of Pittsburgh in Somerset County Pennsylvania, United Airlines Flight 93 crashes in a field at 10:03 a.m. EST. Cockpit voice recordings of Flight 93 captured the hijackers decision to crash the plane before the passengers succeed in breaching the cockpit door. The 9/11 Commission believed the target for Flight 93 was either the U.S. Capitol building or The White House. At 10:28 a.m. EST, The North Tower of the World Trade Center collapses. Americans were glued to their televisions watching in horror as the events of 9/11 unfolded. Our way of life would forever be changed in only 102 minutes. Please take a moment today to remember those killed in the 9/11 attacks and their families. Also, remember the men & women of our military serving overseas that are continuing the fight in this War on Terrorism as well as our first responders serving here at home. #NeverForgotten

We have received numerous calls inquiring about an incident that took place at North Bullitt High School on 09/07/2018. This incident involved a situation in which a student had taken a firearm to school. Since this incident is involving a juvenile and involves a potential criminal court case, not much information can be shared. However, we understand everyone’s concern and would like to share with you as much information as possible. On September 7th at 11:50 am, Hillview Officers were dispatched to an address in the City of Hillview. Officers spoke with a parent who explained that his son, a student of North Bullitt High School had taken a firearm to school. Prior to contacting our agency, the parent was contacted by North Bullitt High School administration to pick up his son for a personal matter. Staff at North Bullitt were not aware that a gun was present in the school at that time. When the parent returned home with his son, he noticed that a gun safe had been broken into and a firearm with ammunition was missing. The parent located the weapon in his son’s backpack and immediately contact our agency. Officers investigating the incident immediately notified the Bullitt County School Board and North Bullitt High School. Both worked closely with the Hillview Police Department in this investigation which led to the student being criminally charged and detained. We apologize that more information cannot be released at this time but hope that this will help clear up any mis-information. Sincerely, Chief William F. Mahoney.

HPD would like to thank the kind citizen that purchased three of our officer’s meals this evening. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Stupid games = Stupid prizes! If you remember from an earlier post, this person thought it was funny to try and steal other peoples belongings. We didn't know who he was and reached out to our citizens for help. Thanks to you all, we received many tips over the past several days. Great work by Sgt Mcallister, Officer Vires and Officer Seda on getting this person off the street last night. Mr. Wagner was charged with Receiving stolen property. He was in possession of a stolen automobile out of Jefferson county.

This photo was taken by one of our Officers recently. We really do live and work in a beautiful county.

The first is louieconnect.com. This is a very user friendly website that is designed to assist people find many types of help. Although it is louisville based, much of the information is helpful to us because of our proximity to the Louisville area.

This website is monitored and updated 24/7 and is used to help those with addictions. The site is very user friendly and can help someone locate a treatment facility to suit their needs.
