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)!

Grand Prairie Police Officers Reunite After Air Force Deployment

Former Officer Molina (now Senior Master Sergeant (SMSgt) Molina) left Grand Prairie PD in September 2019 to join the United States Air Force. Today, after serving a six-month deployment in Iraq, she returned to Texas to surprise her husband, Officer Molina at the Grand Prairie Police Department. She is home for good! They both were hired at GPPD in June of 2017 as lateral police officers. Fun fact: before they became officers, they applied to police departments separately, and didn’t tell each other. Then, on the same day, they shared the news that they had applied. Two peas in a pod. They’ve been married 15 years strong. It took a village to make this surprise a success and it went off without a hitch!
