Spotlight on Patrol -

While on patrol, Officer J. Dollar observed a female using a drive-up ATM machine while on foot. He recognized this practice is often used by subjects committing fraud to avoid their vehicle registration appearing on the surveillance video. Officer Dollar watched the subject as she removed several different debit/credit cards from her shirt, while placing cash in her pocket.

The subject then walked back to a vehicle and after seeing Officer Dollar's police vehicle, she began checking her tires in an effort to appear as if she is checking her tire pressure. The subject then drove off and was promptly stopped by Officer Dollar on a traffic stop.

The subject's accounts of what happened didn't match what Officer Dollar observed and it was determined the subject had an active warrant for her arrest. During a search at the jail, 11 debit cards (all with different names) and $3,260 in cash was recovered. Officer Dollar contacted a Forgery/Fraud Detective who advised these debit cards had been reported in an unemployment payroll scam and would result in federal charges being filed.

Officer Dollar’s observation and investigation skills resulted in an arrest of a scammer who will now face federal charges for her actions. Great work Officer Dollar and thank you for your commitment to keeping our community safe from criminals. #SpotlightOnPatrol #ScamArrest #PlanoProud

We want to recognize Officer R. Baxter for his quick actions that resulted in the saving of a life. Officer Baxter was dispatched to an overdose call. He arrived and located a subject that was exhibiting agonal breathing and had a faint pulse. It was his training that alerted him to a possible narcotics overdose. Officer Baxter that administered Narcan to the subject and began providing CPR until Plano Fire-Rescue personnel arrived. The subject was then transported to a local hospital where he recovered. Plano Fire-Rescue personnel who was on scene advised that the quick actions of Officer Baxter saved the subject life.

Officer Baxter's quick and decisive actions were based on the preservation of life, without regard to the quality or circumstances that led to the situation itself. It is a testament to the professionalism and compassion Officer Baxter displays on a routine basis for the citizen's he serves. We are proud to have him as part of our team, serving this great community. #Lifesaving #PlanoProud #cityofexcellence

Spotlight on Patrol -

The partnership between Police and citizens is a very important part of keeping our community safe. Today's feature is a perfect example. Officers Bedford and Chandler were dispatched to a suspicious person call in the parking lot of a hotel. The caller advised a subject was hiding between cars and had two backpacks. Upon their arrival, they made contact with the subject. The subject identified himself verbally but the Officers suspected he was not being truthful. As they continued their investigation, they were able to determine the subjects real identity and found he had an outstanding warrant. He was the placed under arrest for the warrant and during a search, the Officers located several items such as a debit card, check, license plates, car title, and items of mail that did not belong to him. The tenacity these Officers exhibited to conduct a complete and thorough investigation resulted in victims receiving their property back and potentially stopped identify theft from occurring.

We are thankful for the persistence these Officers showed in conducting their investigation and we are sure the victims are also. #SpotlightOnPatrol

The Plano Police Department would like to thank In-Fretta Pizza and Wing Bar and the non-profit organization, EveryoneEatz for hosting a 9/11 First Responder Appreciation Event yesterday. Officers from area law enforcement agencies, several elected officials and the general public were in attendance.

We would also like to thank US Congressman Van Taylor, Texas House of Representative member Matt Shaheen, and Collin County Commissioner Susan Fletcher for their attendance and for the law enforcement appreciation proclamations they provided to law enforcement agencies.

In- Fretta and EveryoneEatz provided delicious pizza, wings and salads for all who were hungry. In-Fretta’s owner, Ram Metha is a native of New York City. He is convinced his food is so delicious because he ships in genuine New York City tap water for cooking??

Traffic Stop

Those of you with teenagers may already be aware of Senate Bill 30 requiring kids 9-12 grades to watch a video on law enforcement traffic stops and what to do. What you may NOT know is this was also required for all Texas Peace Officers to participate in a 2-hour training course of civilian interactions. We felt this to be very important and all Plano Police Officers have completed the training. This course continues to be provided to all incoming recruits.

Today, we want to share this video with everyone else. We have all seen the current events and want to do our part to educate the public and make you aware of this important information.

We want to thank the office of State Senator Royce West for all their help and cooperation in getting this video created. #ImportantInformation #KnowWhatToDo
