May 15th, 2020 is Peace Officers Memorial Day in honor of Federal, State and Municipal Officers that have been killed in the line of duty. In recognition and honor of their sacrifice, flags will be at half-mast.

As many of you are aware, the Vestavia Hills Police Foundation has been spearheading an effort to construct a monument on the lawn at VHPD that honors police officers, past and present, for their commitment and sacrifice.

Appropriately, Phase 1 of that project is now complete.

The tireless efforts of the Foundation members and an outpouring of community support has created a timeless piece that will stand for generations to come. The words inscribed are also timeless and serve as a reminder to us and all who visit, that law enforcement is more than a profession, more than a job... it is a calling. A calling to always put others before yourself and to defend those that can't defend themselves.

All of us at VHPD are keenly aware of how fortunate we are to work in such a supportive community. We pledge to never take that support for granted. As the monument decrees, we will serve Vestavia Hills with Valor, Honor, Pride, and Dignity.

We will be eternally grateful to all of those that supported the Vestavia Hills Police Foundation in making this dream a reality.

Be a #HangupHero

Please be aware of a phone scam circulating in the area. The incoming call is being spoofed either as a Hoover government agency number, a local 205 area code, or “private number”. The caller says that you possibly have pending criminal charges and/or a warrant for your arrest. They will try to scare you and obtain personal information.

This is NOT how legitimate government business is done. Keep these tips in mind:

• Simply hang up. (if they give you a call back number, DON’T call it back!)
• Never give personal information (even your phone number) to a stranger over the phone (on received calls).
• Never send money, gift card information, itunes card information, or ANY other type of payment to a stranger over the phone.
• If you have questions about the call, hang up. Call a family member or trusted friend so you can seek a second opinion. You can also call Hoover PD Dispatch non-emergency at 205-822-5300.

*Message from the Mayor*

I am encouraged by the most recent data that shows continued progress in the battle against COVID-19. I applaud our residents for the part you have played in slowing the spread of this disease and look forward to the day we can return to “business as usual” – in both our personal and professional lives.

I am equally encouraged by Governor Ivey’s most recent order to amend previous orders regarding social distancing, public gatherings and the reopening of retail, albeit with certain restrictions. This new order looks to be a safe, responsible plan for gradually reopening our economy and restoring the economic health of Vestavia Hills. To be clear, the threat is not over and, as such, our most vulnerable residents should continue to protect themselves as necessary. As stated previously, reopening our economy safely must be a gradual, carefully planned process. But I am confident that every effort is being made to restore the business community that is so vital to Vestavia Hills.

The full order is available under "Orders, Proclamations & Advisories" at https://vhal.org/alert-center.

Is there an update on the status of Alek Ledvina?
Just almost had my child run over crossing in a cross walk due to the officer watching instead of directing football traffic.
"As it stands in America today, the police aid in the trampling of rights on such a massive scale that there is hardly a word sufficiently descriptive. Limited liability? The price of retribution due to the victims of the crimes committed by police on any single day would be beyond calculation, yet not only do these crimes go undenounced (for the most part), and the perpetrators, police and politicians, unpunished, but, even worse, the victims are forced through taxes to finance the operation and salaries of the criminals." Lanny Friedlander "The Cops: Heroes or Villains?" November 1969
I would like to commend Officer Heath and McClellond (I’m so sorry if I spelled your name wrong). With the world as crazy as it is today, I think it’s important we highlight those that truly care about the people they come in contact with. These are the kind of officers who make me want to be a better person. Thank you so much, both of you 💙
To our wonderful Vestavia police men and women... I appreciate you so very much! If you need a break, you are welcome to come park outside my home. If you are thirsty, I will bring you a drink. If you are hungry, I will fix you food. If you need to talk, I will listen. If you need to pray, I will kneel with you. I will support you always. Please don't lose faith in Americans. We truly appreciate you & all that you do to keep our city safe! Thank you!! God Bless you and your family. Blessings, deb & family
Square piece of metal on the road on 65N just before exit at 31 in right hand land. We immediately got a flat tire. Do I need to contact someone else to get it off the road?
why are flags in median today?
A shout out to two of Vestavia’s Finest!! Yesterday, they found my debit card in a gas pump and promptly took it to my bank!! The bank called and all is well. I do not know who you are, I did see you pull up on my way out.😊 Thank you big time! I am so blessed 😇 Praying for each of you!!!!
Move it or lose it. We'll bet on this one too.
THANK YOU 💌 I'm praying for your health & safety 🙏
