Media Release for: August 24, 2018

Yesterday evening Oldham County Police were contacted by a concerned citizen about a "possible police impersonator" in Kentucky Acres. The citizen was concerned about their interpretation of a male subject in a Crown Victoria interacting with juveniles in Kentucky Acres. The citizen could not provide a detailed description of the vehicle or the "possible impersonator". Through investigation it was determined that the person in question was a uniformed Oldham County Police officer. The officer stopped to speak with a group of kids playing basketball then went about his normal patrol duties. Social media can be an excellent platform to disseminate information; however, it can also be the mechanism to quickly spread incorrect information. We appreciate members of the community being observant and vigilant about their safety and encourage anyone to contact us if they believe someone is impersonating an officer. In this incident there was no cause for alarm and we want to dispel any rumors currently circulating on social media.

We would like to take a moment and address a situation that occurred at Walmart, in Crestwood, last week. A mother reported to police that she was concerned about an older gentleman that approached her and her child. The mother expressed to police that she felt that the gentleman’s behavior was odd, and caused fear for her and her child’s safety. An OCPD officer reviewed video surveillance at the store, and was able to identify the gentleman . The gentleman was interviewed by police. He told officers that he frequently tries to reward children, that he feels are behaving well, with a sticker, small toy, or other recognition. While we understand why the mother was concerned, and encourage citizens to contact us if they feel unsafe, it appears that this incident was a misunderstanding. We have advised the gentleman to consider this in the future. We do want the public to be aware of the incident, and not fear that an attempted abduction had taken place. As always, we thank the citizens of Oldham County for allowing us to serve you.

This Holiday Season, You Better Watch Out! Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over The holidays are a festive time for Americans, and endless parties with friends, families, and co-workers can easily lead to drinking too much alcohol. Drinking and driving accounts for one-third of vehicle-related fatalities in the United States. Keep your holidays merry and bright by remembering to always drive sober, no matter what. The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety is partnering with the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign to help keep impaired drivers off the road. The campaign runs December 13-31, 2017. Oldham County Police will increase patrols looking for drunk drivers. If we catch you drinking and driving, you will be pulled over and arrested. Don't put yourself, your passengers, and others at risk this holiday season by drinking and driving. Remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over!
