Each year, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated with city parades, funny leprechaun hats, and plenty of green beer. Unfortunately, it often ends with risky drunk drivers taking to the streets when the parties end. Drunk driving accounts for nearly one-third of vehicle-related fatalities in the United States.

This St. Patrick’s Day, please remember that *Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving*. If you plan to go out and enjoy the evening with alcohol, make sure you refrain from driving.

Today is International Women’s Day, a day for the world to recognize and celebrate the achievements of women. In particular, we’d like to recognize the shown women, some sworn police officers, and some civilian support staff, as well as Communication Officers who have achieved a great deal through their service to the citizens of Prince George.

Happy International Women’s Day, and thank you for everything you’ve done and continue to do!

Community members:

We are actively working a hit and run investigation and could use your help. On 02/14/2021 at approximately 0420 hours, a newer white Kia SX Turbo SUV struck an occupied tow truck that was attempting to remove another vehicle from an accident scene at Temple Ave near River Road. The suspect vehicle then fled the scene, almost striking officers on scene, and was last seen headed into Petersburg on E. Washington Street.

The suspect vehicle will have heavy front end damage, damage to the right front fender, and has heavily tinted black windows. The tag GIGS33 through Florida was displayed but returns to a different vehicle.

This is an ongoing, active investigation. Any information that would assist in locating this vehicle or identifying the driver can be reported to Prince George County Police at (804) 733-2773, anonymously on the P3 tips app, or through CrimeSolvers at (804) 733-2777.

Thursday morning “Shout-Out” from the Chief’s Desk…

I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the fantastic work from our Animal Services staff. During calendar year 2020 our Team received 907 animals into our Shelter. Our “live exit” rate was a recorded high of 93%. Our euthanasia rate was an all-time recorded low; no healthy, adoptable animals were euthanized.

We recently enjoyed an un-announced inspection of our Animal Services facility. Our staff received positive feedback with no violations noted.

Our citizenry and our animals continue to be well taken care of!

Thanks you, staff, for all you do. Your successes do not go unrecognized.

Shout-out from the Chief…

Today, while attempting to settle my bill, after enjoying a good lunch at a local restaurant, I learned that a gentleman sitting across the room had already picked up my tab. I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to meet this PG citizen and provide my thanks to him. This gentleman, seeing a representative in a PG police uniform, wanted to show his support and appreciation for his police department personnel.

These acts of support and appreciation that our PG officers enjoy are not uncommon within our community.

It is not the “free meal” that our officers appreciate; rather, it is the thought of support that is acted upon that resonates.

As your Police Chief, I can say with pleasure that the vast majority of citizen phone calls or visits that I field, related to police officer actions, are compliments as opposed to complaints. Not to say that we get everything right all of the time, we don’t.

Before any PD personnel are hired, I enjoy sharing an interview with them. To no surprise, I find that the very best quality we have to offer and attract good candidates are our citizenry and our community itself. Police officers desperately desire to work in an environment where their difficult, not always popular efforts are supported. Police officers will flee localities that they feel are non-supportive.

On behalf of all of the men and women of PGPD, I wanted to take a quick moment to give a shout out to you, our fellow community members. Thank you for taking care of your police officers – they do deserve it!

- Chief W. Keith Early

It's been a spectacular two decades for Officer Ronald "Ronnie" Sisson.

An incredibly gifted officer, Sisson officially retired on February 1, 2021, from PGPD. He served more than 26 1/2 years as a Police Officer.

Officer Sisson joined us in 2002 and quickly became such a fun, positive force in our department. He was guaranteed to make you laugh, and he was dedicated to being his best possible self every day.

On his final day with us, Officer Sisson shared the following:

"Hard work is the foundation of how to become the best public servant, and you should never stop trying to do your best. I wake up every morning and ask how I can be better. That's the ideal philosophy that I have lived by every day."

We hope you enjoy it, and please join us in wishing Officer Sisson a very safe and very happy retirement.

From the Chief’s Desk……

January, Employee of the Month: Officer “Danny” Byrum

Some of the qualities we look for and expect within our workforce are goodness, resiliency, honesty, work ethic and compassion.

In the theme of “goodness and compassion,” during our hiring processes, should an applicant be posed with a hypothetical interview question, such as…“You conduct a traffic stop for an equipment violation (say a brake light) and you learn that the driver of the vehicle is an elderly grandmother leaving church - she is unaware of her faulty lights - how would you respond?” If your answer is simply, “issue her a summons, per law,” you have just bombed our interview and you will not be employed as a PG police officer. And, yes, during a prior interview we had a question posed and answered similarly.

The desired course of action for a PGPD officer would be to first inform our lovely grandmother citizen of the problem and second to help her with the fix if reasonably possible. The wrong answer is clearly “press hard, five copies.”

This brings me to our January, 2021 “Employee of the Month.” Without divulging specific information, Officer “Danny” Byrum learned of a predicament one of our elderly citizens got her own self into because of a problem that she was unable to remedy. After Officer Byrum finished with his official duties, and after taking the time to understand the root of the citizen’s frustration, he took it upon himself, on his next day off, with his own effort and resources, to fix her problem. Though Officer “Danny” Byrum did not desire, seek, or expect any accolades, we are giving them to him anyways.

In the philosophy of Prince George County policing, our officers are expected to persist in their efforts to pursue and arrest criminals causing harm in our community. Our officers are expected to enforce our traffic laws with the goal of providing highway safety for your families and mine, but we will also police our community with care and compassion – these expectations are not mutually exclusive.

Please join me in congratulating and recognizing Officer Danny Byrum for going above and beyond while policing our community as our community expects it to be policed.

What say PGPD? Will you be making a similar statement to put citizens at ease?
I’m very disappointed in dispatch when I called this Monday morning at 4:52 am. My dogs managed to bring in a stray Staffordshire/pitty mix into the house through the doggy door. My male dog & this stray got very aggressive so I kept them apart thinking if I call the police an officer would come and get the dog as it was very friendly. They have done it before, if animal control wasn’t available. When I called, the woman said no one could come from animal control until they open up at 8:30. I told her the dog is not getting along with my male dog. She told me to open the door and let the dog out. So if gets hit on the road? I’ve never seen this dog in the neighborhood. It’s well taken care of, this is someone’s baby!
Very disappointed with dispatch attitude this morning. I called because my two dogs managed to bring in a lost dog. A Staffordshire
