Our deepest sympathies go out to the Calera PD and the Tackett family for your loss.

Calera Police Officer Robbie Lee Tackett died of natural causes yesterday. Robbie worked as a police officer at Bessemer PD before coming to Calera in August 2019. Robbie was an exceptional police officer who served with honor and dedication. Robbie volunteered with our Explorer youth program and had an immediate positive effect on the post.

Please keep Robbie’s family, friends and coworkers in your prayers.

I was ridding my bicycle through MB Village this morning. Thanks for reminding the driver, who was blowing the horn at us and blasting passed, she should obey our speed limits
I'm just an ordinary citizen -- in an extraordinary country. I wish I could extend my heartfelt thanks to every officer in the United States! Sir and Ma'am: may your path be paved with words of appreciation and deeds of gratitude for your generous spirit and your public service. If the forces of darkness come against you, please remember this reversal in 2 Kings 14-17: So [the king of Aram] sent horses and chariots there and a great army; they came by night, and surrounded the city. 15 When an attendant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out, an army with horses and chariots was all around the city. His servant said, “Alas, master! What shall we do?” 16 He replied, “Do not be afraid, for there are more with us than there are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed: “O Lord, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the Lord opened the eyes of the servant, and he saw; the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. May legions of God's angels surround you as your vanguard and your rearguard, on your right flank and your left.
Does anyone know how i can reconnect with eva jane shelswell white?
I am guessing that someone has reported the traffic light at Overton and Oakdale is not working correctly
This is my plea: To the Sheriffs, Mayors, Police Chiefs, Policemen, Laymen, and Administrators of the Police Department: Today, I'm asking all of you that are kind, courteous, compassionate, loving, caring, and professional to stand up to the corruption of the Rogue Police Officers. You know who they are. Those that are running their gang of hate towards people of color. Those that want to kill and destroy my people. They swore to protect and serve us and they lied. You know who they are. As a matter of fact, if you're reading this and it's you, please turn in your badge, gun and resign. Step down, step aside and let someone else lead that has a heart for the people. You know who you are. Don't let them get away with their corruption. It's only a matter of time, that they will do what Derek Chauvin and his partners did. Please expose these inhumane predators and expell them from their duty. If they can't protect and serve all of Americans, they have no right to deceive us and kill us for the least infraction. Please relieve them from their duty, today! Sincerely, Emma Carter Brooks I'm heartbroken and have been for awhile now, but this murder affected my whole being. When I'm angry, I write, I give, I encourage, and I try to bring peace and stop the blood shed. In 2016 I went through the same emotions about our people being murdered and police officers being murdered. I wrote then and appealed to my community to stop the violence. Which we hadn't had, but I didn't want it to ever happen in my community. I'm weeping today for all of those that have died for no reason, but being #BlackPeople . I'm so tired of this happening to my people. I'm tired. 💔💔
In the early 1980’s the Mtn Brook Police Dept allowed me to be a reserve officer. They assigned officers to train me to be of assistance where needed. They allowed me to ‘ride along’ with their officers and offer additional protection to the public and the officers. Because it has been 35+ years ago, I am only able to remember the names of two officers; Officer Larry Wilson and Officer Chip Gates. If anyone has any contact with these men, please let them know I really enjoyed and appreciated their training and guidance. I also want to take this time to let the residents of Mtn Brook know that the Mtn Brook Police are a very well trained, professional group. All the members of the dept that I came into contact with were very polite and hard working. It was an honor representing the City of Mtn. Brook and the Police Department during my position as Reserve Officer.
A huge shout out to MBPD for noticing my interior car light was on last night. Not only did they stop to check it out but instead of knocking on my door in the middle of the night they had the dispatcher call me and waited while I checked on my car to make sure everything was ok! Pretty much the only thing I love about living on Montevallo Road is knowing MBPD is always there fur my family!
A huge “Thanks״ to all of Law Enforcement for all You do! 👍👍
MBPD, if I’m not mistaken, you all offered a women’s self defense class last year. Are there any plans to repeat that class? If not, are you aware of any reputable classes in the area? Thank you!
Can something be done to alleviate traffic issues at Overton Road and South Brookwood Road during school times? People are going to cause an accident. I leave my office to get to Trussville to pick up my kid from school and I have to leave 45 mins ahead of time. I’ve been sitting in this traffic for 20 mins now. I will be late getting to my destination.
Shout out to officer R. Smith who assisted my 16 yr old driver following a wreck this afternoon on 280. He was polite, efficient, and extremely professional and we are thankful for him. We cannot, however, read his handwriting on the form he gave us at the scene...... I guess I can call tomorrow? Thanks for all you do!
Very conscientious and dedicated to assure environments of safety and protection. Sincere and serious interactions with citizens to effectively acquire details of situations that occur. Loyal and respectful attitude when conveying unconditional regard.
