I appreciate and support all Law Enforcement

From Missouri Governor Mike Parson
As a former sheriff, and having served in law enforcement for more than 22 years, it is a privilege to recognize and support Missouri's law enforcement officers.

The life of a law enforcement officer is not easy. Officers throughout Missouri protect us every day without hesitation and without second guessing the potential impacts on themselves.

They do a job that most people don’t want to do, but others expect them to. It is our responsibility to pay tribute to them with the highest respect.

To all of our law enforcement officers and their families, we will continue to honor your service, your sacrifice, and your courage. You will never be forgotten, and Missouri will always be grateful.

God bless our officers, God bless the great state of Missouri, and God bless the United States of America!

Just as you’ll protect yourself with a warm coat, hat, and gloves when you head outdoors, your pets will need the extra protection too! Though they may have furry coats, animals are by no means immune to dangerously cold temperatures. Even rabbits, cats, and dogs that typically live outdoors need extra assistance keeping warm as temperatures drop to alarming lows.
5 steps to keep animals safe during this cold weather warning:
1. If possible, bring pets indoors at night.
2. Bundle up your pup in a jacket or sweater during their walk, especially if their coat is made of hair (vs. fur)
3. Before you start your engine, look under and pound on your vehicle’s hood to wake a napping cat trying to keep warm.
4. Never leave your pet alone inside your vehicle, which won’t stay warm for long after your engine has turned off.
5. If your pet MUST remain outdoors, make sure that are in a winter-friendly shelter that has the following components: three-sided enclosure, stands off the ground, contains generous amounts of bedding, and plenty of (un-frozen!) drinking water.

UPDATE: Dakota Pace was taken into custody early this morning (01/13/2022) in the City of Farmington, Missouri by the St. Francois County Sheriff's Department after a high speed pursuit. The pursuit ended after Pace crashed the vehicle he was driving into utility poles. He then fled on foot from the crash and was subsequently arrested by law enforcement.

It’s early so make sure Designated drivers are picked now... DON’T get behind the wheel drunk or impaired. We will be out in force so be smart and start the New Year right. Also call for assistance before anyone decides to get behind the wheel tonight. We would rather get you a ride home safe then see you or anyone else injured/killed.

Fredericktown Police Department
Press Release
December 16, 2021

The Fredericktown Police Department would like to notify the public of posts circulating social media sites, such as Tik Tok stating that on Friday December 17, 2021, there is a challenge for individuals to call in bomb threats and school shooting threats at schools across the United States.

Social media is a powerful tool that has the potential to influence individuals, however those influences are not always appropriate. It is important that the public understand that vigilance in reporting potential threats is necessary for the safety of the public and our schools. We ask parents to take the time to speak with your students about the influences of social media and the potential consequences of engaging in this dangerous behavior. Our office will take every threat seriously and students/non-students will face possible legal consequences for making threats.

As a result of this potential threat, there will be an increased presence of law enforcement at our local schools leading up to the Christmas break. We again ask that our community continue to be vigilant and report any threats.

The Fredericktown R1 School Administration and the Fredericktown Police Department will be extra aware tomorrow leading into the Christmas Holidays.

If you see someone “working” under any vehicle on any parking lot call 911 immediately and try to identify the vehicle they leave in, if you can do so safely. Catalytic converters are being stolen in the middle of the day on the busiest parking lots EVERYWHERE.

Great Job Cape PD

On Friday, January 1, 2021, at approximately 12:01 a.m., Cape Girardeau police officers were patrolling several residential areas in response to reports of gun shots actively being fired. While patrolling the 3000-block of Mimosa, a Cape Girardeau police officer heard multiple gun shots originating from a nearby parking lot. This officer then observed two adult males in the parking lot who had handguns in their hands and their arms extended in the direction of his patrol vehicle. This Cape Girardeau police officer then observed muzzle flashes from the barrel and it appeared evident that the two men were firing gun shots at his patrol vehicle.

The Cape Girardeau police officer exited his patrol vehicle in a safe position with his department-issued handgun drawn from its holster and he ordered both suspects to drop their weapons at gun point. The two suspects refused to comply and ran into their apartment with their fi****ms. Cape Girardeau police officers quickly established a perimeter around the residence in an effort to keep this threat to the public safely contained. Police officers then began to negotiate with the suspects to peacefully exit the apartment but the two men refused to comply. After approximately 90 minutes of negotiations, both suspects exited the residence and surrendered themselves into police custody.

These suspects were then positively identified as Darius J. Ballentine, a 30 year-old male from Cape Girardeau, and Deontay M. Holloman, a 26 year-old male from Cape Girardeau. After taking these suspects into custody and receiving a search warrant for the residence, officers entered the property and secured evidence from this assault inside the home.

The suspects were transported to the Cape Girardeau Police Department where they were booked without incident. A warrant was issued on Ballentine for 1st Degree Assault (felony), Armed Criminal Action (felony), discharging a firearm at a motor vehicle (felony) and for being a felon in possession of a firearm (felony). A second warrant was issued on Holloman for 1st Degree Assault (felony), Armed Criminal Action (felony) and discharging a firearm at a motor vehicle (felony).

Cape Girardeau Police Chief Wes Blair offered this statement on the incident, “Police officers go to work every day knowing that they perform a dangerous job. However, that does not excuse this violent and unprovoked attack on one of our own. Shooting at police officers performing their duties is an assault on the entire community and must be condemned in the strongest of terms. The restraint exercised by responding officers in apprehending these suspects is commendable.”

Ballentine and Holloman have since been transported to the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff’s Office where they are still being held on $100,000.00 cash only bonds.

I would like to know how to volunteer at the pound to help clean the kennels. I am tired of seeing people bitch about a few piles of p**p that accumulates and won't do anything to help. I would like to help.
CAN SOMEONE IN THE AREA LOOK INTO THIS AND HELP THIS PREGNANT DOG THAT'S OUT IN THIS WEATHER IN FREDERICKTOWN, MO???? The post is on 'Saving St. Louis Pets' FACEBOOK PAGE.
I’d like to see proof that John V***a was charged with attacking a protester.
Why is power out again?
Tonight 10:30 at Walmart we had a stray dog (someones pet) wander in the store. We didn't want to just turn the dog out into the weather. Fredericktown PD responded and took the dog to a shelter. Thank you. Boomer (the dog) thanks you. I didn't get the officers name but kudos to the whole department.
I think it's way past time for someone to reopen the Gina Dawn Brooks case. www.coldcasecrimes.org If your Police Chief would contact these people, they may be able to work the case. 30 years is a long time for a family to be hung out waiting for answers. 😥😥
The guy who drives this truck was recklessly driving it through Walmart parking lot and caused a Walmart employee to jump out of the way to avoid potentially getting hit by this guy.
