ProTip: Cut off fingers can usually be reattached if youโ€™re lucky; blown off fingers and hands not so much. So, have a happy and safe 4th of July!

This story, after the events of this week, is a little bit of light in the darkness. Please indulge us, and let us tell you the story. The dispatcher that was on the radio channel last Wednesday night didnโ€™t have to be there. His trainee was sick and he was offered the day off,but he decided to come in (because thatโ€™s what dispatchers do). He is a seasoned dispatcher, the best of the best, and hearing those two words, officer down, is every dispatchers worst nightmare. We think all the dispatchers out there would agree. He handled the channel, under extreme conditions, and maintained the calm, saying we are proud of him does not do him justice. In the wake of critical incidents, our friends Front Street Shelter support our dispatchers by bringing in shelter dogs as therapy dogs for our hardworking dispatchers. Did we mention the Front Street manager is a former SPD dispatcher? So to make a long story short, we would like you to meet โ€œSullivanโ€, Sully for short, and he was adopted by the dispatcher that worked the channel the night we lost Tara. We like to think they rescued each other. #Sully #taraosullivan #togetherwehonortara #sacpd #officertaraosullivan Front Street Animal Shelter - City of Sacramento

Yesterday, torrential rain and drastic wind gusts overcame Americaโ€™s most hallowed grounds. Visitors ran for cover. News media piled into vehicles together. The streets flooded. Trees as old as the cemetery itself broke at the trunk and came crashing down. But America's Regiment endured. They found low ground and held fast through the wind and the rain. Some had to be to ordered to stand down from planting flags, still determined to continue to honor the fallen.

During the storm, one of the most extraordinary displays of discipline and dedication to duty ever to be witnessed at Arlington National Cemetery was taking place at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. With only a few watching from cover, a Tomb Sentinel approached the Unknowns with U.S. flags in hand. As thunder shook the ground and rains washed down without abandon, the Tomb Sentinel pierced through the elements with breath-taking precision. He knelt and placed the flags in honor of the Unknowns. For the select few who saw this moment, it was jaw-dropping. Humans have their limits, but The Old Guard has yet to meet theirs.

If You Care, Leave It There!

People occasionally find a lone fawn and mistakenly assume it has been abandoned, which is rare. Fawns should never be picked up. If human presence is detected by the doe, the doe may delay its next visit to nurse.

DEC is reminding New Yorkers to enjoy wildlife and their young from a safe distance and resist the urge to touch or pick up newborn fawns and other young wildlife.

***NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK DAY IS SATURDAY, APRIL 27th***

**THE LANCASTER POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL AGAIN BE HOSTING A DRIVE-THRU DRUG DROP OFF SITE AT TWIN DISTRICT FIRE HALL FROM 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM.**

It's a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet!
Protect our kids, families and environment by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our waters. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high - over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.

PRESCRIPTION DRUG ABUSE AND ADDICTION OFTEN LEADS TO HEROIN USE - WHICH IS CURRENTLY THE #1 DRUG PROBLEM IN OUR COMMUNITY.

THE LANCASTER POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL AGAIN BE HOSTING A DROP OFF SITE AT TWIN DISTRICT FIRE HALL - 4999 William Street in Lancaster. (Thanks again to our friends at Twin District Volunteer Fire Department!!)

So, on Saturday, April 27th...from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM...drive in....drop off...no questions asked.

Way to go guys!

This week was National Public Safety Telecommunications week! We wanted to take a minute to thank the calm, reassuring voice you hear on the other end of a 911 call. A dispatcher gives pre-arrival instructions, listens to the cries of those who need help, gives CPR instructions, does ten things at once while typing 100 words a minute, all while making sure that their first responders are safe! They are the Golden Glue that holds us all together. These men and women often go unrecognized for the vital work they do. On behalf of the Cheektowaga Police Department we want to say "๐“๐‡๐€๐๐Š ๐˜๐Ž๐”" to our dispatchers that protect us everyday.
