GPPD Memorial Run 2020

Our annual Memorial Run honoring our Fallen Officers covers about 8 miles. It's a tradition that's carried on for nearly a decade. We purposely stop at each site where we lost Ofc. King, Sgt. Hunter, and Ofc. Castaneda.
#NeverForget
#RememberTheFallen

Officer Lyndon King passed away March 1, 1982. While on-duty, he was struck and killed by a drunk driver while working an accident scene on I-30.

Sergeant Greg Hunter was shot and killed on June 18, 2004 in the line of duty while responding to a call of a suspicious car in a Walmart parking lot near I-20.

Officer AJ Castaneda passed away on June 7, 2019 after being struck by a motorist along President George Bush Turnpike while running radar.

We'd like to thank Jack Highberger with NBC DFW for his profound storytelling to inform and educate our community about our new COPE program, which stands for Community Outreach Partnership and Education.
https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/grand-prairie-police-launch-new-community-mental-health-program/2432441/?_osource=db_npd_nbc_kxas_eml_shr

COPE, led by our Crisis Support Unit, is an information-sharing initiative providing Grand Prairie first responders immediate access to helpful diagnosis details relating to people in our community suffering from mental illness. This program not only enables our officers to have critical diagnosis details in advance in most cases but also enables our team to proactively check on residents and connect them with resources to remain healthy.

This is a no-cost VOLUNTARY program. Residents can provide demographic information, a current digital picture of themselves or loved ones, and emergency contacts along with supporting medical documentation. If a police officer encounters a person, vehicle, or residence of someone enrolled in COPE, officers will have access to confidential and critical diagnosis details, helping to facilitate assistance and reduce the potential danger of the encounter.

In less than two months, we are crossing our fingers to hopefully have our annual National Night Out event on Tuesday, October 6, 2020! With the ever-changing information surrounding COVID-19 cases, it’s nearly impossible to guarantee whether or not the event will take place. That being said, as of today, we are planning to move forward with the NNO event as we normally would while ensuring that we closely adhere to physical distancing, wearing masks, and other safety measures to best protect each other and our families. If you are considering hosting a neighborhood event, please register today (https://bit.ly/GPPDNNO2020)! By registering, this will allow us to adequately prepare and keep you posted on details regarding the event as it draws near.
