K9 Kilo and K9 Officer Solomon earn state certification With a little more than one year in service as a canine team, K9 Kilo and K9 Officer Solomon recently earned a state wide certification from the North Carolina Police Dog Association. The certification from NCPDA tests Kilo’s proficiency in several areas and Officer Solomon’s technical knowledge of K9 laws and Kilo’s abilities. The pair is certified in tracking missing/wanted persons; article/ evidence searches; building searches; handler protection/apprehension; obedience; and narcotics detection. Kilo is certified to detect marijuana, powder cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine. According to NCPDA’s website, their mission is “To ensure that police dog teams are professionally and properly trained in order to protect lives and property of citizens. To provide a professional standard in which all trained police dogs must maintain in the performance of their duties. To ensure that the handlers in the state have adequate knowledge of the laws regarding the use of canines. To prevent malicious use of partially untrained police dogs within law enforcement agencies in the state. To provide re-certification on a timely basis in order to maintain the integrity and credibility of police dog teams.” Congrats!

Halloween Safety The police department wants to promote a safe night by providing this information to the public. The hours for trick-or-treating have been established as 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. Halloween should be filled with surprise and enjoyment, and following some common sense practices can keep events safer and more fun. We at the Roxboro Police Department would like to share the following safety tips: Motorists: ▪ Watch for children darting out from between parked cars. ▪ Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs. ▪ Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully. ▪ At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing Parents/Children: • Only visit houses with porch lights on • Check any costumes with masks to make sure children can see clearly. • Costumes should not be long enough not to cause your child to stumble • Use reflective tape on dark costumes so that motorists can see your child. • Carry a flashlight or glow stick (this is helpful for children to see while walking and also makes them more visible to motorists) • Be sure that children know that, under NO circumstances, should they enter a home • If your child has an identification card (school ID or other) make sure to bring it along • There should be an adult with all children. • Remind children to stay out of the street, except to cross the street. • When crossing a street, be on the lookout for cars. Sometimes it is hard for drivers to see you. Children should only cross a street with adult assistance/supervision • Check ALL candy and treats before eating any that you receive. Halloween is a fun time, but let’s make it a safe time as well. The major dangers are not from witches or spirits, but rather from falls and pedestrian/car crashes. The normalcy of Halloween costumes and masks are permissible so long as they do not create a public safety concern.

Trick and Treat at the Police Department Parents, looking for a safe place to take your kids on Halloween? The police department will have candy during business hours for trick or treaters. Be sure to visit participating Uptown businesses for Trick-or-Treat from 3pm-5pm. For more info visit the Roxboro Area Chamber of Commerce events page.
