Awww how sweet! Congrats to the lovebirds:)
An NYPD cop showed himself to be a real Prince Charming on Broadway Monday night.
After the cast of the musical “Cinderella” took their bows, NYPD sergeant Alan Chau, 30, took the stage with his girlfriend of almost five years, Maria Roca, 28.
As friends of the Queens lovebirds held up signs that asked, “Maria, will you marry me?” Chau dropped to one knee and popped the question.
“I’m here because I love you,” the romantic cop said in the fairy tale moment, presenting his bride-to-be with a shiny engagement ring.
From handheld fingerprint readers to iPads, the Imperial County Sheriff’s Office is pushing new technologies by leaps and bounds.
Now officials are looking for the public’s help to move forward.
Through the last year, the Sheriff’s Office has been implementing new technological advances, like in-car cameras in the Winterhaven patrol cars, upgrades to the website, a new fingerprint system, crime reporting maps, a text message service and more.
“It’s exciting times,” said Jerry Godsey, scientific investigations supervisor. “We’re really moving, pushing the envelope where we can.”
Four new faces reported for duty Saturday at the Indiana State Police Lafayette Post.
For the next 14 weeks, the men, who graduated from the 72nd Indiana State Police Recruit Academy on Dec. 21, will ride with field training officers and get acquainted with their assigned counties.
Once they graduate, each trooper has to spend at least a year on the road, Indiana State Police Sgt. Kim Riley said. When their probationary period is completed, they can be sent to another district.
A year later, the reorganization of the Champaign Police Department is just about complete.
Police Chief Anthony Cobb and Mayor Don Gerard swore in six new police officers on Tuesday night — more than one year after a slew of retirements at the top of the department triggered a chain reaction of promotions and hirings.
Cobb himself was part of that readjustment. He took over the department in January 2012 after then-Police Chief R.T. Finney retired in 2011.
The 30-year-old man who shot a city police officer Monday night died of a self-inflicted gunshot, according to state police.
Police sources say that Jason Razzino had at least three weapons – a Mini-14 rifle and two handguns. He began firing at the police when they arrived, state police said.
Officer Jonathan Ley was wounded during the exchange of gunfire, police said. The condition of Ley, who was shot multiple times, has been upgraded from critical to serious. Ley was initially taken to The William W. Backus Hospital and later flown by Life Star to Yale-New Haven Hospital.
A Phoenix police officer who survived being shot six times said he wants to return to work as a soon as possible, even though his jaw is wired shut and a bullet remains lodged in his back.
Peter “Chris” Bennett appeared Tuesday at a news conference at a Phoenix hospital, where he’s recovering from gunshot wounds to the right side of his face, his right hip and right arm.
The 4 1/2-year veteran spoke through a wired-shut, swollen jaw alongside the surgeon who cut and cleaned his wounds, reconstructed his ear and wired his fractured jaw.
“I actually feel pretty amazing, all things considered,” said Bennett, 36.
Bennett underwent surgery Monday. He was shot Sunday night while patrolling alone in an area of the city known for a high burglary rate, police said.
The officer spotted a man in dark clothes acting suspiciously while riding a bicycle.
Three Ruby Tuesday restaurants in the metro-east are helping raise money for the family of an Illinois State Trooper who was killed in the line of duty in November.
The Ruby Tuesday’s in Litchfield, Collinsville and Fairview Heights are giving 20 percent of customer’s bills on Tuesday to the Trooper Kyle Deatherage Memorial Fund.
The First Congregational Church of Highland organized the fundraiser through Ruby Tuesday’s Community GiveBack program.
The Newport News Police Department and its officers will be featured in an episode of a popular reality television show this weekend.
Officers will appear on “Cops” Saturday, Jan. 5 on FOX 43 TV at 8 p.m.
“The department itself has been around since 1882,” Harold Eley with the Newport News Police Department said. “We have a long long tradition of good police work. It’s ["Cops"'s 25th anniversary. [I think us] being on the show showing what we do… people would be excited about that.”
