If you receive this notice in the mail, please know that this is NOT from our department and we do not endorse them. We do not recommend sending them money. Thank you to the resident that brought this to our attention.

We are grateful to John Johnson and Patient Aids of Wilder for the donation of a companion scooter. On the afternoon of May 8th, Sgt. Hyett was called to Boost Mobile. While there, he met Vickie Ashcraft. She had travelled from her home to the store, a 2.5 mile trip that took over 4 hours, after being unable to get a ride from the bus. Her scooter is over 12 years old and she was forced to repair it several times during her journey. The batteries in the scooter were now failing and she could not make the journey back home. Of course, Sgt. Hyett drove her, Buddy (her dog) and her scooter home. Ms. Ashcraft was grateful, but Sgt. Hyett was concerned about her safety using the old scooter. He approached John Johnson of Patient Aids to see if anything could be done and he stepped up in a big way. A new Golden Companion scooter was donated to our department to give to Ms. Ashcraft. We added a hat too. People count on the police when they need help, but we cannot do it all. Yesterday a company and some people brought safety and happiness to a person in need. That is a major reason our people come to work everyday.

At approximately 3:25 pm, the Cold Spring Police Department and the Highland Heights Police Department became involved in the pursuit of a stolen vehicle. The vehicle was being driven by a 13-year-old juvenile. After approximately three minutes, the juvenile lost control of the stolen vehicle at the intersection of University Drive and Nunn Drive and struck a Campbell County Police Department marked patrol vehicle causing airbag deployment and injuring the officer. The officer and the juvenile suspect were transported to Saint Elizabeth Fort Thomas Hospital by the Central Campbell Fire Department. The collision report is being handled by the University of Northern Kentucky Police Department and the juvenile's arrest is being handled by the Cold Spring Police Department.

We have received several concerned calls and messages about a robbery that occurred in the city yesterday. The incident is under investigation and happened on Goetz Drive. All information indicates that the suspects specifically targeted that residence and the choice was not random. We have no reason to believe that anyone else in the city will be targeted and that our city is still a very safe place to live and work. As always if you see anything suspicious, then call 911 or 859-292-3622.

Sgt. Hyett reports that a kind woman with her children bought his lunch at Wendy's today and thanked him for his service. We are always happy to hear that from members of the public and dedicated to providing the best service possible.

We've got some information for our friends that travel Pooles Creek Road. A culvert is being replaced and the road will be closed between AA Highway and Darlas Drive tomorrow (8-15) from 8 am to 7 pm. If you have any questions, then please contact the DOT Construction Office at 859-356-5300. As always we can be reached for questions at 859-441-6289. Our non-emergency Dispatch number is 859-292-3622. Enjoy your day.

Exciting news came in today. Steve Collinsworth has been hired to lead our department. We are expecting great things and look forward to working with him.

We at the Cold Spring Police Department have some congratulations to hand out. Chief Brian Messer and Sgt. Ratcliff are now enjoying their retirements, which is well deserved. Sgt. Andy Hyett has been named acting Chief while the search is on for our next leader.

Proud to have assisted Hamilton County Sheriff's Department, Highland Heights Police Department and Southgate Police Department in safely stopping a pursuit. It started in Ohio and ended in the parking lot of Christ Baptist Church with no injuries reported.

The Cold Spring Police Department is investigating a theft from the Kroger on Martha Layne Collins Blvd. This vehicle was involved in the theft. If anyone would have information on the owner of the vehicle please contact us. Office - 441-6289 Dispatch - 292-3633 Or send us a private message.

The person's of interest in the Car Wash case have been identified. We thank each of you who took the time or made the effort to provide us with the information.

A tense moment tonight was captured on camera as a vehicle drove off the roadway on Homan Drive and into a flooded area. At this time we would like to thank Lisa Decker, Toni Townson Sullivan and Jon Hughes who assisted with the rescue of the two trapped persons in the vehicle. Officer Matt Lloyd was our officer who responded and without hesitation went into the rising waters to assist in getting the individuals to safety. Everyone was rescued from the vehicle. As you can see in the pictures listed this incident could have been tragic. The third picture below shows where the vehicle became totally submerged. After the waters subsided you can see where the vehicle came to rest. This is a reminder of why it is never safe to drive through high water.

With the closure of Matinee Drive, we have been receiving an increasing amount of speeding and stop sign violation complaints for the area of Bunning and the Granite Springs subdivision. In the past, when we increased our presence and enforcement in problem areas, we have received complaints by people who were pulled over and cited for speeding that they were not given adequate warning beforehand. Please consider this notice as the warning. Our officers will be out enforcing speed limits and stop signs. We have also placed a radar trailer in the area to remind people to slow down. Please drive safe and be considerate of your fellow citizens and their families.

We ask everyone to join us in keeping Louisville Metro Police Department and the family of LMPD Officer Nick Rodman in their thoughts and prayers. Officer Rodman was involved in a vehicle pursuit last night and his cruiser was struck by the suspect's vehicle, trapping him inside. Despite efforts to save him, Officer Rodman sadly passed from his injuries this afternoon. He is survived by his wife and two young children.

Suspected DUIs are especially dangerous and should be reported immediately. - Crimes in progress, such as assaults, robbery, theft or weapons being used against/pointed at people. - Crimes or other emergencies that are about to happen, such as someone threatening to commit a crime or someone contemplating suicide.
