BCFD and BCPD are holding a food drive for the next two weeks to help with the urgent pantry need at The Salvation Army, heading into the holiday season. Please consider joining us, and dropping off non-perishable food items to the Police Department, 34 N. Division St., or any of the six fire stations in the city. Drop off at BCPD and Station 1 are 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and at the remaining fire stations are 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Please click through to our website for more details. And thank you!!

We would like to thank Martha Thawnghmung and the Burma Center for the wonderful dinner and activities with friends at the Burma Center Friend-Raiser. The Battle Creek Police Department members enjoyed it very much. Also, thank you for your kind words. We look forward to our continued relationship of breaking down barriers!

Thank you, Battle Creek Friends Church women's group, Hearts for Helping, for the kids care bags that were put together for the children of our community! They include small books, bibles, coloring books, a stuffed animal, snack and bottled water. Sometimes we, as police officers, come across young children in our community that end up at the station and they need a little pick-me-up. That is what these bags are for. Thank you so much for your caring and compassionate spirit! Thank you to Krista Quakenbush and Sharon Johnson for your passion also.

Last night's Trunk-or-Treat was a blast! Thank you to everyone who came out and a big thank you to all our volunteers who made this event possible. We hope to see you all again next year.

Who is ready for Trunk-or-Treat tonight? Make sure to invite your friends and family if you haven't already done so. Thank you to everyone who donated to make our annual Trunk-or-Treat possible. Special thanks to DENSO for your continued support. We appreciate each and everyone of you. In the meantime, enjoy some photos from last year's Trunk-or-Treat and a recent photo with Paul from DENSO with their generous donation. Happy Halloween!

We had the pleasure of hosting Willard Library as they took story time on the road to our new building. We had so much fun meeting everyone that came out. We look forward to doing more collaborative work like this in the future.

Tuesday Tips today are to get you ready for Halloween and trick-or-treating this week, if you celebrate and participate! 🎃👻☠🕷 We wish everyone safety and fun, and invite you to our Trunk or Treat event across from Battle Creek Central downtown, if you're looking for a place to trick or treat!

Every day, 29 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. That equates to one death every 50 minutes.

BCPD, with other area police agencies, have received a grant from The Office of Highway Safety Planning. This grant will enable our agencies to have extra police patrols out to do Impaired Driving Enforcement. The date range for this detail is now until Nov. 4th. The grant will cover both impaired driving and seatbelt enforcement. These extra patrols will run until September 2019. We are committed to providing our area with safe roadways and this grant will help us to do that.

In 2016, speeding killed 10,111 people, accounting for more than a quarter of all traffic fatalities that year.

Seat belts dramatically reduce risk of death and serious injury. Among drivers and front-seat passengers, seat belts reduce the risk of death by 45%, and cut the risk of serious injury by 50%. Seat belts prevent drivers and passengers from being ejected during a crash. People not wearing a seat belt are 30 times more likely to be ejected from a vehicle during a crash. More than 3 out of 4 people who are ejected during a fatal crash die from their injuries.

Something great happened today! We had our first Cops & Clergy meeting in the community room. It was a great conversation involving faith leaders from all around the community who came together with the shared value that WE ALL BELIEVE IN BATTLE CREEK. We look forward to extending this conversation and collaboration in the future. #WeBelieveInBattleCreek

Cellphones aren't the only cause of distracted driving!

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated candy, snacks or money towards our Trunk-or-Treat event next week. There's still time and we still need LOTS of treats, so if any individual or group would like to donate please feel free to bring your donation down to the new Police Department Monday-Friday 8-5. Thank you!

Drivers can be distracted by any number of things, both inside and outside the vehicle. I can not stress enough, the importance of being an attentive and focused driver.

Earlier this afternoon we caught on video the demolition of the public entrance overhang of the old PD building. (No sound on this one.)

Thank you, Louie's Donut Shop, for the declious donuts! They will make for a great afternoon pick me up!

In recognition of Teen Driver Safety Week, we will be sharing some important facts on issues related to teen drivers throughout the week. We hope that parents, teachers, and anyone who has a teenager in their life will take the time to talk about safe driving with their teen.

The BCPD Bomb Unit was having some fun and showing off their robot for the Bruin Bots robotics club at New Level Sports Ministries. Thank you to Mr. Heath and Mr. Cohoon for having us out. We are very happy to support this great program.

Reminder that our building closes to the public at 3 p.m. today! Please call the non-emergency number after that time if you need to speak to an officer -- 269-781-0911. Thank you!!

Paxton got the chance to see what it is like to be a Deputy Chief at the Battle Creek Police Department! We hope you enjoyed your visit to BCPD, Paxton! We know Deputy Chief Grafton enjoyed spending time with you!

Have you seen any officers wearing shirts like this this week? October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and BCPD staff were given the opportunity to purchase these specially made BCPD Breast Cancer Awareness shirts to help raise awareness and show their support.
