The Fort Mitchell Police Department will be joining other police agencies in the No-Shave November Campaign. Officers will put down their razors for the month of November to help bring awareness and donate money to help with cancer research. Each day, 22,000 people die from cancer worldwide . There's a good chance that someone you know and love will be affected by this disease. Nearly half of cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable. No-Shave November's mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate the population about preventative measures. For over six years, participants around the globe have put down their razors and foregone their hair appointments to join the fight against cancer. The No-Shave November campaign has successfully raised over $3.5 million dollars to combat this disease. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer in our efforts to fund cancer research and education, help prevent the disease, and aid those fighting the battle. Each whisker grown allows us to embrace our hair, which many cancer patients lose during treatment. Here is a link for donations if you wish to help us.

We are reaching out to see if anyone knows the male and female in the attached photos(female is hard to identify). They entered an open garage door of a home in the north end of Ft. Mitchell stealing items. Please share. If you know these people please contact Kenton County Dispatch at 859-356-3191, or message us here on Facebook. You can remain anonymous. As always, we appreciate the help from our community.

Coming soon to a street near you: If you live in or travel through Fort Mitchell, you will see two new additions to our road signs in the next few weeks. FMPD ordered radar speed signs to help make drivers more aware of their speeds. The signs, which are battery operated, will be rotated around the streets in our city. In addition to displaying speeds and a short message, the signs will also collect traffic statistics, including average speeds and vehicle counts. We've purchased two signs initially so that we can evaluate their effectiveness. If the results are positive, we will look into adding more signs in the future.

Last week, we completed a week-long radar traffic survey on Superior Drive between Dixie Highway and Oxford Drive. Over the course of 7 days, the radar counted 8,902 vehicles passing with an average speed of 22.3 mph. More than half of the vehicles that passed were traveling under the posted 25 mph speed limit and the 85th percentile of speed was 29 mph. Going forward, we will be moving our traffic classifier around the city more frequently and posting those results on social media and here:

We are working another accident with no injuries south 75 at the 187.5 we have moved it off to the shoulder. Please slow down and drive safe in construction.

We are working to clear a 3 car accident south 75 at the 187.2 left side. No injuries. Please drive safely.

**Roadway is now clear**Fort Mitchell Police with the help of Fort Wright Police are trying to clear the highway after a tractor trailer lost control and went off the roadway Northbound I-75 at 187.8. There were no injuries.

The Great Central US Shakeout Drill will take place on October 18 @ 10:18 am. Kentucky EMA would like as many participants possible. We are all aware of the potential for earthquakes in Kentucky being near the New Madrid and Wabash Fault Line. Below is a link showing how your school, business, family, etc. can participate. Share this post so others can get the message about the drill.

Great photo of our K-9 Handler, Specialist Shane Best and his partner Tony.

The Full-Scale Active Shooter Drill at Beechwood Independent Schools has ENDED. Roadways impacted by the drill have now been reopened. Thank you for your patience and understanding while this training was performed.

No, you aren’t looking at the latest piece of Fort Mitchell Police equipment. Blessed Sacrament School is hosting a Civil War Day today. You may have heard the sounds of muskets firing already this morning. The big boom will happen between noon and one today when this canon is fired. We’re told it’s going to be pretty loud.

Around noon today, there will be some tests on the fire dispatch radio channel relating to the upcoming active shooter drill at Beechwood Independent Schools. If you have a scanner (or happen to be near a firefighter who is wearing a pager), you might hear these tests. The dispatchers will begin and end their dispatch with the words "exercise exercise exercise" to indicate that there is not a real emergency.

We love our jobs protecting the citizens of Fort Mitchell .... and also our little wildlife friends. This little guy was on Ft Mitchell Avenue, he is safe and sound now.
