I just wanted to say thank you to the officer we met today. We were walking out of Hickory Tree after having lunch and an officer pulled up at the red light and waved to my 4 year old daughter. She was so excited that he waved back it made her day. As soon as we had gotten to my vehicle he pulls up behind us and gives her a sticker then offers to let her sit in his car. She immediately got shy but as soon as he drove off that’s all she’s talked about since. I regrettably did not get his name but thank you for brightening my little girls Sunday afternoon.
Thank you to our Joshua P.D. uniforms for taking time out with our school children as they were getting off the bus!!
Letting cows STARVE to death is ok?!
Reports are that there are severely starving and dead animals (pigs, dogs, and mostly cattle) on the 4900 block of 1022 in Joshua, TX. Reports are that this has been brought this to the attention of authorities' attention multiple times over the past couple of years, to no avail. What is going on there, please?
I would like to say thank you to Officer Barton from the Joshua Police department for helping my guys by following them and blocking traffic to tow a stranded woman out from highway 174 to our shop.
This is Wilson. My 11 yr old nephew who is in the midst of a rough battle with brain cancer. After emergency surgery, 6 weeks of radiation, he just finished his second round of chemo. He has a long road ahead of him, but he is such a fighter! Last week Weatherford PD swore him in as an honorary police officer, complete with a full uniform and badge! Now police departments all around are donating patches, badges, pins, ect for his collection, as it is his dream to be an offer himself one day. Please watch this video and consider donating to his collection as well! Thank you, and always praying for the safety of your PD!
Hey Joshua PD in keeping up with the lip syncs from Ft. Worth PD, DPD, and the other mid cities depts. We wanna see what ya'll can do!
