REMINDER!!!

It is NEVER a good idea to purchase gift cards and give the numbers out to an unknown person, whether it be over the phone, on Facebook, or ANY OTHER means of communicating. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is! If you ever have a doubt as to whom you are dealing with online or on the phone, END THE CONVERSATION! Call a friend or your local police department to run the situation by another person. These scams do not just target the elderly! Anyone can become a victim! Spread the word!

Lieutenant John R. Sedlacek End of Watch 7/29/2021.
It is with a heavy heart that the North Tonawanda Police Department announces the death of retired Lieutenant John Sedlacek.
Lieutenant Sedlacek graduated from Tonawanda High School in 1960 and obtained an Associates Degrees in Police Science in 1975.
Lieutenant Sedlacek was hired by the North Tonawanda Police Department on January 10, 1968, where he was assigned to the Patrol Division upon graduation from the Erie County law Enforcement Academy. He remained in the Patrol Division until he was promoted to Detective in 1977. In 1983 he was promoted to Lieutenant and remained in the Detective Bureau as the Detective Lieutenant. In 1985, Chief Lloyd Graves re-structured the Police Department. During that re-structuring, Lieutenant Sedlacek was assigned to the Patrol Division, where he remained until his retirement on March 20th, 1998.
During his career with the North Tonawanda Police Department, Lieutenant Sedlacek, wore many hats. He was a Traffic Officer, Plain Clothes Undercover Officer, a Critical Incident Negotiator, in addition to his role as a member of the Niagara County Major Crimes Task Force and Major Crime Warrant Task Force.
He has numerous letters of commendation in his personnel file and was a true leader in the North Tonawanda Police Department.
Lieutenant Sedlacek was 79 years of age and died after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
May he rest in peace with his beloved wife Jacqueline, who predeceased him.

North Tonawanda Police Department’s K9 Stella has received donation of body armor

North Tonawanda Police Department’s K9 Stella has received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. K9 Stella’s vest was sponsored by Lisa Willett of Saint Paul, MN and embroidered with the sentiment “In memory of SPPD K9 Cody”.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., established in 2009, is a 501(c)(3) charity whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. This potentially lifesaving body armor for four-legged K9 officers is U.S. made, custom fitted, and NIJ certified. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. has provided over 4,327 vests to K9s in all 50 states at a value of $6.9 million, made possible by both private and corporate donations.

The program is open to U.S. dogs that are at least 20 months old and actively employed and certified with law enforcement or related agencies. K9s with expired vests are also eligible to participate. There are an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. accepts tax-deductible contributions in any amount, while a single donation of $960 will sponsor one vest. Each vest has a value of $1,744-$2,283, weighs an average of 4-5 lb., and comes with a five-year warranty. For more information, or to learn about volunteer opportunities, please call 508-824-6978. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts donations at www.vik9s.org, or you may mail your contribution to P.O. Box 9, East Taunton, MA 02718.
