A Kent Police Department Patrolman made a snap decision and saved a teen from drowning in the Cuyahoga River.
Saturday evening, Officer Jim Ennemoser heard an emergency call for the fire department over the scanner, and decided to head to the river himself.
Bane is still lost.
Nearly seven months after the police dog disappeared while on duty in the woods near Onaway, State Trooper Jamie Bullis has a new K9 partner, Vadas.
But Bullis has not given up on finding Bane — or at least learning what became of him.
The weather was perfect Saturday for kids to get out and go fishing with police officers at Merrill Park in Eagle. The event, ‘Cops and Bobbers’, gave young anglers in the making the opportunity to learn from officers what it takes to catch a fish that’s worthy of a story.
Idaho Fish and Game and Cabela’s provided the necessary equipment for kids who didn’t have their own.
The woman slouched on the steps of the rundown motel, her hair mussed, her pinkish outfit rumpled, her expression perplexed. Health officials were combing the brick-facade building where she lived for bed bugs as part of a multi-agency raid, while police banged on door after door, hunting for ex-felons.
Police Officer Patrick O’Bryan and state mental health counselor Randee Hill approached her. “How you doing?” Hill asked.
“Not so good,” the woman answered. Her room lacked plumbing and heat. Her cat, Egyptian, had gone missing amid soiled blankets and McDonald’s wrappers. And she repeatedly referred to the cat as a jaguar.
Officers Eric Pena, who also shared the 2009 Police Officer of the Year Award, and Min Kim, both of the North Shore’s 120th Precinct, were honored at the Old Bermuda Inn, Rossville, during a luncheon co-sponsored by the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce and the Advance.
Amid the devastation left in the wake of the tornadoes that ripped through central and western Massachusetts on Wednesday, a state trooper has brought a measure of joy to a family in one of the hardest hit towns.
State Police said in a statement that Trooper Brian Pearl rescued a 25-pound, dark brown Shar-Pei-Chow mix puppy from a collapsed home on Stewart Avenue in Monson on Saturday morning, three days after high winds sucked the dog from its home on a nearby street.
The Riverside police officer struck by lightning while helping with the Joplin tornado died this morning at a Springfield hospital. Jefferson “Jeff” Taylor, who volunteered to go to Joplin, was 31 years old. He is the first Riverside officer ever to die in the line of duty.
“We are heartbroken,” Riverside Police Chief Greg Mills said today in a statement. “Our department, our community and law enforcement as a whole have lost a dedicated professional doing what he did best — helping those who were in need. The fragility of life gives way to the enduring spirit Jeff showed to us all. Our department will never be the same.”
