Hollywood Police Department has suffered two tragedies in 24 hours. Rest easy Lt. Graham, you've done your duty. Thank you for your service. For all officers, if you are struggling, reach out. Your brothers and sister have your back!

The Hollywood Police Department is deeply saddened to share the unexpected and devastating passing of Lieutenant John Graham.

Lt. Graham devoted his life to public service, as a member of the United States Marine Corp from 1996-2000 and as a Police Officer here at the Hollywood Police Department for 20 years.

Lt. Graham was a platoon leader in the Police Academy, received a Bachelors of Science from Union Institute in 2012, attended the Southern Police Institute in 2014, and received a Masters in Public Administration from Nova Southeastern University. He was also recently accepted into Nova Law School.

Lt. Graham served for 15 years on the Hollywood Police SWAT team where he held the title of Operator, Team Leader, Assistant Commander, Sniper, Explosive Breacher, and Rapel Master.

Lt. Graham became a Sergeant in June 2013 and was promoted to Lieutenant in 2018. While holding the rank of Lieutenant, he was in our NTL Unit, then Bravo shift Patrol and most recently in the Training Unit.

He was recognized many times for his leadership at the Department. He received 24 letters from the community detailing his hard work, and received 12 Supervisor Commendations as well as a Unit Citation. Lt. Graham was Officer of the Month in December of 2007.

He was a member of the Florida State Boxing Commission from 2012-2021.

As we struggle to understand, please keep John and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Another hero gone too soon. R.I.P. Officer Chirino. Our hearts are with his family, friends and department, who are all grieving today.

Today we remember Hollywood Police Officer Yandy Chirino

Early this morning Officer Chirino died in the line of duty while responding to a call for help last night. He was 28 years old and had been with the Hollywood Police Department since 2017. In just this short time, he was recognized multiple times for his outstanding work ethic, received five commendations and was Officer of the Month for June 2020.

We offer our deepest sympathies to Officer Chirino’s family. Your son selflessly devoted his life to law enforcement, was a great officer and will leave a lasting impact on our community. There are no words that can comfort the pain your family is feeling right now. Please know that pain extends here, with his brothers and sisters at our Department. The Hollywood Police Department Family will stand beside you in the difficult days ahead and will always carry on your son’s legacy.

Officer Chirino will be remembered for his selfless actions and his sacrifice. He gave his life honorably and without hesitation, protecting those in our community.

Our thoughts and prayers to all of these officers families, friends and departments.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY U.S. NAVY! 🇺🇸

When the infant Continental Navy was first formed on October 13, 1775, it consisted of just two armed vessels – tasked with disrupting munition ships supplying the British Army in America.

The theme for the Navy’s 246th Birthday is “Forged by the Sea”!

To all in our community we wish you a #HappyLaborDay, thank you for all that you've done and continue to do. 🇺🇸

A huge thanks to our APD volunteers that helped keep our event safe today, including Officer Verhagen, Officer Michel, and Officer Powell. And to the APD officers (Bryan Graham, Erica Taylor, Angie Franco, Julia Hall, Leonor Thompson, Kort Munoz, and retired APD Sgt Michelle Stellato/current UTA PD) who climbed today in honor of a 9/11 fallen police officer. These officers climbed today because a hero selflessly climbed on 9/11. These officers ensured that their assigned fallen officer made it to the top today. As they gathered in the courtyard for opening ceremonies, listened to audio of TV coverage from that tragic day, and then walked single file, in line with their fire and EMS brothers and sisters, they reached out to touch a piece of steel from Ground Zero, gaining motivation to climb the 112 floors. Chief Jones and Sgt. Moore were onscene to support our climbers and capture this event. Thanks to all who made this happen today - #neverforget #weclimbbecausetheyclimbed

A traffic stop. Officers who were members of a community safety team in a crime hot spot. Dealing with 3 suspects who ambushed them and did not value their lives. Now this young woman, this hero will be laid to rest. Thoughts and prayers to the officers' family, friends and department for such a terrible loss.

Members,

Angie Bell, Chris Powell, and I met with Nikkie Hunter who is running for City Council District 3. Nikkie is a strong supporter of police, including increasing funding for police. Nikkie also does not see a need for a citizens oversight committee which her opponent is for.

As a result of our meeting, we have decided to endorse Nikkie Hunter for District 3. If you recall we also recently endorsed Jim Ross for Mayor (City Wide Election). Both candidates are headed to a run-off election, with early voting starting Monday, May 24, with Election Day on June 5.

We are asking all our members who live in Arlington and who live in District 3, which is from Matlock to the 360 and from I-20 to the south city limits, please go and vote.

Chris CeBallos
President
