A 32 year old male is charged with Unlawful Imprisonment 2nd, Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, and Endangering the Welfare of an Incompetent/Physically Disabled Person 1st after he took a minor child and a company vehicle without authorization from the group home in which he was employed. The vehicle was tracked by GPS and located by Buffalo PD in the City of Buffalo. The child was still inside the vehicle. The male suspect was in a nearby store and involved in another disturbance there. Buffalo PD took the male into custody, and he was transferred to the custody of Lancaster PD officers. Detectives assisted with obtaining statements from the group home staff from the above incident and are also investigating an alleged assault of a separate child by the male suspect earlier in the day.

Officers conducted a traffic stop on Broadway in the Village of Lancaster after the operator failed to signal an intent to turn right. While speaking with the male driver, the odors of marijuana and alcohol were apparent, and the driver was observed to be chewing/swallowing something. After the driver was asked to step from the vehicle and open his mouth, a white residue was visible on his tongue, and during a subsequent search of the vehicle, a white rock substance suspected to be cocaine based was recovered from the rear floorboards of the vehicle. The driver and male passenger denied knowledge of the cocaine and were both subsequently arrested. The 31 year old driver is charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th and failure to signal. The 36 year old passenger is charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 2nd, and drinking alcohol in a motor vehicle. The vehicle was impounded.

An officer observed a vehicle on Sheldon Avenue with a loud exhaust. The officer initiated a traffic stop, and while speaking with the female operator, the odor of marijuana was apparent. She then admitted to possessing marijuana in the center console of the vehicle. During a subsequent search, about 2 grams of marijuana and a marijuana pipe were recovered in the center console. Additionally, 3 Xanax tablets were recovered from her wallet. When asked if she had a prescription for the Xanax, the 20 year old female stated that she did not and was only holding it for a friend. The offender was then arrested and is charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 2nd, Possessing a Controlled Substance Outside of its Original Container, and a loud exhaust violation.

An officer observed a vehicle parked towards the rear of the parking lot of a Transit Road hotel, away from any other vehicles, occupied by two parties who were drinking beers, in violation of Lancaster Town Code 2-3, and smoking cigarettes. After approaching the vehicle and identifying the male and female, the male was found to have, in effect, a stay-away order of protection, preventing him from being in the presence of the female. The 48 year old male was taken into custody on the above and during a search of his wallet subsequent to arrest, a torn plastic bag corner and multi-colored straw, both with white powder residue identified to contain cocaine, were recovered from his wallet. During a subsequent search of the vehicle due to the presence of drugs, a marijuana joint was recovered from the driver's door, along with an open beer, which was in a cup holder in the center console. The male is charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 2nd, Criminal Contempt 2nd, and a violation of Lancaster Town Code 2-3. The 41 year old female was released at the scene and advised of the Lancaster Town Code.

Officers responded to a Transit Road retail store for a report of an altercation between several individuals. Officers interviewed the individuals involved and charged 34 year old female with Harassment 2nd after she punched a 32 year old female in the face during an argument inside the store. The 36 year old female was issued an appearance ticket at the store and is barred from entering all store locations.

Patrol conducted a traffic stop on Como Park Boulevard after observing a vehicle being operated by a male that is known to have a revoked license due to previous recent encounters. The 52 year old male's license was confirmed to be revoked and he was issued UTT's for Aggravated Unlicensed Operation 3rd, operating a motor vehicle w/o an ignition interlock system, and unlicensed operation.

An officer took a complaint of political signs being stolen from a male's yard. The signs were replaced by one representing the opposing party. A short time later the complainant called back and stated a friend was playing a joke on him and all was in order.

Diary of a Mad Dispatcher

Couldn’t have been better said 💛

A Special Someone
An Officer's "Thanks" to the Dispatchers
By Deputy Tim Lindsey, Lamar 6

It takes a special someone to do the job you do.
To answer hundreds of calls a week with
"9-1-1, Where is your emergency?"
To ask all the right questions in order to get the needed help to someone in distress.
To patiently extract information from the kindergartner who calls and tearfully whispers, "My mommy won't wake up."
To cheerfully look up and relay phone numbers to the warrants officer when what you really want to say is, "Why don't you put a FREAKIN' phone book in your car!"
To be partially responsible for the apprehension of the armed robber two counties over because YOU notified surrounding agencies of the vehicle description thirty minutes before the shift commander thought about it.

It takes a special someone to do the job you do.
To sleep on a cot in the records room, break room or in the hall while your agency deals with the latest man-made or natural disaster to come along.
To strain to hear till your eardrum cramps because some people absolutely refuse to hold the mike up to their mouth while they talk.
To carry on three different conversations, on the phone, on the radio, and in person and keep them all straight.
To deal with the drunk at the drive-thru who caller 9-1-1 because they put too much ketchup on his hamburger. Yeah, he went to jail!
To talk the lady through the proper procedures when her daughter went into labor two weeks early and gave birth in the bathroom.

It takes a special someone to do the job you do.
To take control, give directions and calm down the hysterical woman who accidentally shot her loving husband.
To take control, give directions and calm down the hysterical woman who intentionally shot her abusive husband.
To run 28's, 29's, Triple I's, "All Systems", and warrant checks and not pull out all your hair in the process.
To spend hours on end training the "newbie" in the skills you have acquired over the years.
To work with the "newbie" for weeks at a time when you knew from day one that they weren't going to be able to cut it.

It takes a special someone to do the job you do.
To answer your home phone in the middle of the night with "9-1-1, where's your emergency?"
To ride the emotional roller-coaster on the call where the three year old boy followed his dog into the woods wearing only his Scooby-Doo underoo's got lost, got found three days later by search & rescue still alive, was carried through dense woods and thick underbrush over three miles to the command-post, picked up by ambulance and then died fifteen minutes from the hospital. To comfort, support, and encourage each other when one of your guys is killed in the line of duty.
To stay awake and alert from 0330 hours to 0530 hours when things finally settle down on Saturday night.
To work under enough pressure and stress that a CEO in the private sector under the same stress would earn a million dollar bonus.

You are that special someone!
You are MY dispatcher and I thank God for you!

If it should happen that I leave this life before you, I will stand face to face with God and thank Him for making people like you.
I will then go stand by the gates and I will wait for you.

In 1994 Congress officially recognized “National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week” to be celebrated the second full week of April. This week coincides with National 911 Education Month. While given the current state in our area, we are not necessarily celebrating but we would still like to recognize the hard work and dedication of the PSD’s of the LDEA.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all first responders, Police Fire and EMS, medical professionals-Nurses and Doctors and all essential personnel. We are in this together 💛🇺🇸
