On 05/06/2021, Dexter P.D. officers were working a joint operation with the U.S. Marshalls Service and the A.T.F. in attempting to locate a wanted fugitive identified as Michael S. Ryan of Fisk MO. Information was obtained Michael was in the Dexter MO area. Officers located the vehicle Ryan was occupying and identified Ryan as the driver. Officers initiated a traffic stop on Ryan’s vehicle in the city limits of Dexter, at which time he fled from officers. A motor vehicle pursuit ensued and traveled throughout portions of Stoddard County rural areas. During the vehicle pursuit, Ryan lost control of his vehicle on Stoddard County Road 483 near County Road 408. As officers approached his vehicle, he was not present in his vehicle and appeared to have fled on foot.

Dexter PD’s canine unit responded at which time a track was initiated for the suspect. After a lengthy track, it was determined the suspect was no longer in the area and had possibly been picked up by a vehicle. After a lengthy investigation, Michael Ryan was located at a residence in Fisk MO. Ryan was apprehended and placed into custody without incident.

Ryan was transported to the Stoddard County Sheriff’s Department where he is being held pending court proceedings. Michael is being held on a Stoddard County warrant for possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, unlawful use of a weapon and stealing. Michael is also being held on a federal U.S. Marshall’s detainer warrant for felon in possession of a firearm and ammunitions.

The Dexter Police Department would like to thank the Stoddard County Sheriff’s Department, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Butler County Sheriff’s Department, the Missouri Department of Conservation, Puxico Police Department, the U.S. Marshall’s Service and the A.T.F. for their assistance in apprehending Michael Ryan.

We have had a lot of inquiries as to what the new building is next to the Police Department. We would like to address what the building is and what its purpose will be.

Prior to this building being constructed, our evidence containment room was roughly the size of a small portable building. It contains evidence which by state statute and regulations, sometimes must be kept forever, depending on the type of crime. As you can imagine, having evidence dating all the way back to the 1970's (rough guesstimate), there is a lot of stored evidence, even for a small town like Dexter. Due to the amount of evidence, this created at times an unsafe and un-manageable work environment for our evidence technician. The new building has a secure and climate-controlled room, roughly the size of 2300 square feet. This dramatically increased our evidence storage size and upgraded our storage area. This size is roughly 2/3 of the new building itself.

The other portion of the building was designed for the future in mind. Prior to this room, if we had a department meeting, the need for a command operation center, a room for a major case squad investigation, etc., we had to rely on other buildings in our city, not affiliated with the Police Department to complete the tasks at hand. With this new room, we have the technology and the capabilities of turning this into an emergency operations center for the City of Dexter in the event of a natural disaster, severe storms, etc. This room has radio capabilities our normal dispatcher center has, functionality and technology for other agencies to use in the event they ever need an offsite location in the event something happens to their own facility, etc. This room was designed and built to last and keep up with technology for decades to come.

This project was approved in the July 2020 budget for the Police Department. The agreement was for the city to pay for materials and limited contractors when needed. This entire building was built by Dexter PD employee's during normal work hours except for a few days here and there on off times. This project began in September of 2020 and completed this week. We are proud of this building and we are looking forward to utilizing its capabilities in the future.

We would like to thank the City Alderman for the approval of this building, Chism Construction for the concrete work, Bollinger and Son Heat and Air for the climate control and David Robinson Construction for assistance during the project.

National telecommunications week is April 11th - 17th. In honor of this, we would like to recognize a few of our communications personnel who are the glue that holds it all together. They’re the first voices you hear when you call for help. They’re the faceless first responders with a calm voice in the chaos. We thank them for their service and appreciate the job they do each day.

The monthly test for the outdoor warning sirens will take place tomorrow, Wednesday April 7th at 9:00AM. Each siren takes approximately a minute and a half to initiate and operate, it may be a few minutes after 9:00 until the sirens in your community are activated. In the event of inclement weather, the siren test will be postponed until the following Wednesday at the same time. Use this as an opportunity to think about the actions yourself, your organization, and the people you represent should take if this happened to be a real-world event.



It has been several months since the sirens were last operated, a wail tone will be used tomorrow to ensure it is functioning. For monthly tests moving forward, a chime tone will be used, with the wail tone being used once a year for the annual State-Wide tornado siren testing. As a reminder, Stoddard County Emergency Management controls the sirens for Advance, Bell City, Bloomfield, Dudley, Essex, and Puxico. Bernie and Dexter operate their own sirens.

As most of you are beginning to receive your stimulus payments and tax reimbursements, please be aware scammers are becoming active to scam you out of your money. We have received several reports today of people being contacted by person(s) claiming to be with Publishers Clearing House announcing your winnings. Then requesting you go to Wal-Mart and purchase shopping cards or do money transfers to be paid out to get your winnings.

If someone contacts you requesting your personal information, credit card information or banking account information, please be aware of this and do not give out any information over the phone to anyone. Please, if you have any doubts at all, do not give your personal information out to anyone. This will prevent you from losing your money and having credit issues due to thieves using your information to obtain credit or services in your name.

Here are some helpful links for consumers on tips to protect your personal information:

https://ago.mo.gov/civil-division/consumer/identity-theft-data-security/identity-theft

https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/how-avoid-scam

If you feel you have been a victim of a scam or your identity has been stolen, please contact your local police department for assistance. You can request a free copy of your credit report from any of the three credit bureaus listed below:

• • Equifax. Equifax.com/personal/credit-report-services. 800-685-1111.
• • Experian. Experian.com/help. 888-EXPERIAN (888-397-3742)
• • TransUnion. TransUnion.com/credit-help. 888-909-8872

Be diligent about protecting your personal information. Scammers tend to target the elderly most over other age groups in reports we've been made aware of. Please speak with your family members about not sharing their personal information with anyone.

Remember the old saying...... If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't true!!

Wise words to live by.

I would like to give a big thank you to the Dexter Police Department for helping the Public Administrators office and helping the Stoddard County Sherriffs Department this afternoon. Your professionalism was greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!!!
Y’all are one of the worst police departments I’ve ever delt with. Personally, I think YOU SUCK!
Just want to say Thank you to the Dexter Police Department for checking our businesses at night and keeping us safe!!! You are greatly appreciated!! WE BACK THE BLUE!!!💙💙💙💙💙

Walmart Dexter would like to thank Dexter Police Department for assisting with our senior hour this morning. It was much appreciated.
Would like to thank the 4 officers quick response that showed up this morning when we had a alarm go off at our office. Great response time guys. Thank you again.
You y’all really should come patrol county road 717 and slow these people down .. just had one going at least 50 between the tracks , thanks!!!
Attended the Red Hotdog Festival this weekend and my wife and I enjoyed the event with the exception of a brief moment where I lost my wallet. Apparently one of your officers found it and I would like to thank them and your Police department for the courteous professional treatment we recieved. Thank You!
Two officers, unfortunately, I did not get their names, drove me, my father, and our dog to our hotel after our vehicle broke down. They were super friendly and went out of their way to help us. It was dangerous crossing the highway at night, so I’m glad we didn’t have to do that and put ourselves or our fur kid at risk. Thank you to the nice gentleman that assisted us! That being said, the dispatcher, Amanda, is a worthless excuse for a person. She’s super rude and doesn’t deserve to work in a public setting, especially at a place where you are supposed to help people. Honestly, shoveling crap would be too good for her because evil people upset animals and children. Other than her being a terrible person and dispatcher, I love the Dexter Police Department!
