RIP Officer Walters.

*In The Line Of Duty* CA - Rest In Peace San Diego Police Department Police Officer Daniel Walters, 53, who passed away from complications of gunshot wound inflicted In The Line Of Duty in 2003. End Of Watch: April 23, 2020.

Please, we ask, #SayHisName - Officer/Brother Daniel Walters - not just "RIP" or a run of ridiculous emojis. When you SAY HIS NAME, you will REMEMBER HIS NAME and A HERO REMEMBERED ... NEVER DIES

On November 12, 2003, 2230hrs(local), Officer Walters was working second watch, two to midnight, training a rookie Officer, Aaron Hildreth, and backing up other officers on stops. As they came to 43rd Street, they spotted a patrol vehicle with the lights activated.

As the Officers rolled up, they saw another Officer, Henry Ingram, on his hands and knees on the ground, taking cover after being shot at multiple times.

*An armed man had been out hunting down his wife and children to shoot and kill them. The suspect had found them and double-parked behind their vehicle.

Ofc. Ingram had not known what the driver of this vehicle had been up to but as Ofc. Ingram pulled up, the suspect got out of his vehicle and opened fire on Ofc. Ingram.

This is when Ofc. Ingram went low for cover and when Officers Walters and Hildreth rode up on the scene - never having heard the shots*

(please understand, all this happened in a matter of split seconds) As Officer Walters, a five year veteran to the Badge, exited his cruiser, glancing back and forth, he saw a gunman walk up on him, arms outstretched with gun in hand. The suspect was too close for Ofc. Walters to pull his gun so he tried to disarm the suspect.

During the struggle, the suspect was able to put the gun to the back of Officer Walters neck and pull the trigger. Officer Walters when then struck by a passing vehicle.

Officer Hildreth was able to take a shot, shooting the suspect multiple times, ending the threat, permanently.

Officer Walters, at age 37, was left paralyzed and spent four months in rehab before returning home. The paralysis left him with just enough movement in his left arm and hand that he could perform some basic functions but with some difficulty.

Prior to becoming a Police Officer, Brother Daniel played Professional baseball. First for the Houston Astros, who drafted him in 1984. After five seasons of playing with Houstonโ€™s Triple-A Team, Dan was traded to the San Diego Padres in 1989. Dan played in the minors until being called to catch for the Padres in the 1992 and 1993 seasons.

In 1993, Dan sustained a spinal injury. Following successful back surgery, but ending his baseball career, Brother Daniel fulfilled his second dream of becoming a police Officer and was hired by the San Diego PD in 1998. He was 32 years old.

On April 23, 2020, Police Officer Daniel Walters succumbed to complications of his gunshot wound.

Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the families, both of blood and of Blue and to all who knew and loved this amazing True Blue Hero - from all of us at True Blue Warriors

From the Bedminster Township PD:
It is with deep regret and sorrow that The Bedminster Township Police Department announces the passing of our beloved Patrol Sergeant AlTerek Patterson. Sergeant Patterson fought a courageous battle against COVID-19 and unexpectedly passed away early this morning. He graduated from the Somerset County Police Academy Recruit Class 35-05 in December 2005 and began his career as a patrolman on January 1, 2006. AlTerek Patterson was promoted to the rank Sergeant in October 2014. Sergeant Patterson always had a smile on his face and touched the lives of so many residents at their time of need.
Please keep his family, friends, and members of The Bedminster Township Police Department in your thoughts and prayers. I ask that you respect the privacy of AlTerekโ€™s family during this difficult time.

Please, we ask, #SayHisName - Officer/Brother Justin Putnam - not just "RIP" or a run of ridiculous emojis. When you SAY HIS NAME, you will REMEMBER HIS NAME and A HERO REMEMBERED ... NEVER DIES

On Saturday, April 18, 2020, 1915hrs(local), San Marcos Police Officers responded to a call about an assault/domestic disturbance at the Twin Lake Villas Apartments on Hunter Road.

The 911 caller stated that the suspect hit his wife and that other people were inside the building.

After speaking with a family member in the parking lot, the officers decided to enter the building because they believed people inside were still in danger

As the Officers were forced to make entry, the armed suspect was waiting and ambushed the officers with a rifle.

Three Police Officers were shot.

"There was nothing they could do to escape the gunfire. He was ready for them,โ€ Chief Klett

Officers Justin Mueller and Franco Stewart were taken to Ascension Seton Hays where they underwent surgery late on Friday night. Both remain in critical but stable condition.

Officer Mueller has been an officer for 10 months. He previously served as a telecommunications operator with with the department for more than 11 years. Officer Stewart has been with the department for five months. He was previously with McAllen PD for two and a half years. Our thoughts are with them and their families - prayers for healing.

No family members were seriously injured though the psychological damage will linger. Our prayers are with the victims

Sadly, Police Officer Justin Putnam succumbed to gunshot wounds.

Officer Putnam had been with the San Marcos PD for five and a half years.

Interim Police Chief Bob Klett said "We lost a fine young man, a faithful officer and a friend. He understood what it took to police a wonderfully diverse community like San Marcos.โ€

Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the families, both of blood and of Blue - from all of us at True Blue Warriors

The gunman, age 46, died on scene from self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was wearing body armor when found.

RE: Massachusetts New Advisory Regarding Face Coverings and Cloth Masks

Dear Community,

I hope all of you are healthy and well during these trying times. We want all of you to know we are working very hard to combat COVID-19, and we appreciate all you have done. Together we WILL defeat this.

Health Departments have been receiving many inquires over the past couple of weeks about the general public, essential employees, and others masking in public to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and last week the state issued the attached advisory. It can be found here at: https://www.mass.gov/news/advisorv-regarding-face-coverings-and- cloth-masks

Grocery store employees, food handlers, public health and safety employees and other essential workers are vital to our community and are risking their health and safety every day to ensure that critical infrastructure services can be accessed by the general public. For that we say THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU for all that you are doing for our communities!!!!!

However, there are times when practicing social distancing cannot happen due to obvious reasons and therefore, we are endorsing the new state advisory for people to mask while out in the public if possible. Masking is important but we should also still be practicing universal and preventative measures including:

frequent washing of hands with soap for 20 seconds.
avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth (face).
cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze (preferably with a tissue that gets disposed of immediately).
stay home if you are sick.
clean and sanitize touch surfaces regularly; and
maintain social distancing measures whenever possible.
Follow all COVID-19 advisories.
We understand that trying to find masks during this unprecedented time may be challenging but there are many options, including making homemade cloth ones by visiting: https: //www.cdc. gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent- getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html. Other options may include visiting Carr Hardware at www.carrhardware.com and according to the Berkshire Eagle article last week a Housatonic Company is making them for purchase at https://petitpilou.com/ and of course www.Amazon.com. There may be others not listed here.

Tri-Town Health does not support or endorse retailers listed here, but rather an attempt to offer resources to be successful with the state advisory. Be Safe, Be Healthy, and Be Well.

RIP Boston PD Officer Jose V. Fontanez.

In Memoriam: The Boston Police Department Mourns the Passing of Active Duty Officer Jose V. Fontanez

It is with deep regret that the Boston Police Department announces the passing of active duty Boston Police Officer Jose V. Fontanez due to complications from COVID-19. Officer Fontanez was a 29-year veteran of the BPD who was assigned to District E-13 (Jamaica Plain). Officer Fontanez received numerous commendations for his dedicated service during his 29-year career and was highly regarded by those he worked with, his supervisors and all who knew him. Jose will be greatly missed by his friends and colleagues here at the BPD as we all send our heartfelt condolences to his family and loved ones during this tremendously sad and difficult time.

Great example of a Lenox resident and member of Lenox Central Fire Company trying to do his part to help.

Great example of a Lenox resident and member of Lenox Central Fire Company trying to do his part to help.

The Lenox Fire Department would like to recognize Justin Mercer who is a member of Central Fire Company. Justin on his own time and money has been making these face mask clips with his 3-D printer. These clips are used by nurses, doctors, EMS, etc to attach the straps that would typically wrap around the ears but due to extended use are causing pain and injury. The ear straps attach to this clip behind the head to allow a more comfortable application. Justin has sent numerous clips to Berkshire Medical Center and also the Boston Children's Hospital. Thank you Justin for doing your part to help during this crisis. Job well done !!!

04/14/2020

This is an important message that County Ambulance had posted. It is regarding you still calling 911 if you believe you are having a medical emergency. Please read below.

While we have been happy to see people heeding Governor Baker's request to say home and prevent spread of COVID-19, we have not been happy to see that some of you are not calling 9-1-1 when you are having medical emergencies.
We know that just because COVID-19 has dominated everyone's thoughts some of you are still having heart attacks, strokes and other medical emergencies.
We want to reinforce the fact that many medical emergencies are truly time sensitive and the longer you wait to call for help the more likely you are to suffer permanent disability or worse. Be assured that our crews, our vehicles and Berkshire Medical Center are taking extraordinary steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and it is safe to take ambulances and go to the emergency department when you have the need. Please do not suffer at home because of any fear of contracting infection leaving your residence.
Remember we are always here to help.
