The Red Ribbon Campaign® is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the Nation and a way for people and communities to take a visible stand for healthy lifestyles. The campaign was created after DEA Agent Kiki Camarena was kidnapped and killed in Mexico in 1985. People began wearing red ribbons as a symbol of Kiki's sacrifice and to show their support for drug-free living. With approximately 74,000 American lives lost last year to drug overdose, your participation in Red Ribbon Week is more important than ever. Red Ribbon is intended to be fun AND effective. Here are ways to celebrate: Communicate with children about the importance of staying drug free and the meaning behind this year's theme: "Life Is Your Journey. Travel Drug Free.™" Also, don't forget to Lock Your Meds. Secure your medication, take regular inventory and properly dispose of unused or expired medication. Educate, educate, educate. It's not just about wearing red. Teach the importance of living drug free.

FIND YOUR KIND. Cookies for a Cop brought by this supporting family! The department appreciates and thanks the community for their continuous support and encouragement.

COLUMBUS COUNTY, N.C. - A North Carolina State Trooper is dead after authorities said he was shot during a traffic stop Wednesday morning. Bladen County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Larry Guyton said the suspect was caught around 4 a.m. in the woods near Fair Bluff, which is west of Whiteville near the South Carolina line. The identities of the trooper and the suspect have not been released.

There are several new telephone scams that are occurring right now involving the IRS, Publisher’s Clearing House, Grandparent scam, and the Deputy Sheriff Scam. In all of these scams the person calls and tries to put pressure on our citizens to send in money or give out their bank account information. None of these are valid and no personal information should be given over the phone unless the citizen knows exactly who they are talking to and what they are talking about. Commonwealth Attorney Michelle Snodgrass has put out some tips to avoid scams: Hang Up! If you feel the call might be valid ask for another number and call them back. Do not pay money upfront for a prize. Do not wire money or send gift cards to someone you do not know. Don’t rush- the caller wants to scare you into acting quickly. If it seems too good to be true- it probably is! In addition, you can sign up for text alerts from the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office. These texts warn citizens of any new scams that are being reported. Text “KYOAG Scam” to Gov311 (468311)

Did you know that almost 20 people per minute are abused by a partner in the United States, equating to more than 10 million people per year? October has been commemorated as National Domestic Violence Prevention Month. The observance serves to educate communities, individuals, couples and families about community resources that can help prevent, raise awareness of domestic abuse. SEE SOMETHING. SAY SOMETHING. If you or someone you love is experiencing domestic abuse, DO NOT hesitate to call the police department for resources located here in NKY.

The Highland Heights Police is aware of a post on another Facebook page in reference to a subject in Highland Heights that caused a few of our citizens to call the police yesterday morning. We want to assure our citizens that their safety is our top priority and the situation was handled in accordance with our policies and procedures. We understand that not everyone will always be happy with how we resolve every call for service but we strive to provide the best service for every citizen within the confines of the law. We applaud our officers for de-escalating what could have been a very difficult incident and resolving without the use of physical force. Our officers responded to a call of a suspicious subject banging and kicking on the doors of multiple residences. Officers confronted the subject and quickly identified that he was suffering from some sort of mental health issue. Officers were able speak to the person and convinced him to give officers a loved one's information so they could be contacted. That person came and picked the subject up. She was able to confirm a history of mental illness and she agreed to take him to the hospital for an evaluation. He agreed to go with her on his own accord. Officers later learned that the subject jumped from the car of his loved one as they neared the hospital because he didn't want to go. He was located by Newport police who then transported the subject to the hospital for evaluation. The hospital where the subject was taken is coincidentally same one that one of the original callers works. We thank all the callers that brought this to the attention of our officers. Policing truly is a collaborative effort that works best when the community takes an active role in their safety.

Police officers love getting letters from kids in the community! Lt. Conrad and K9 Tiba recently spoke with over 80 2nd graders about the day in the life of being a police officer. Here are samples of the great drawings the kids made after their police experience!

Today is National Do Something Nice Day! A small act of kindness can make a huge difference in someone’s life. Have you done something nice today? #DoGood
