We had some visitors from the Loveland Police Department today. Chief Cook connected with their Police Chief, Tim Doran, in October who asked if he could send his Chief of Staff, Bob Coleman, and Social Media Specialist, Hannah Gleditsch, to visit WSPD to learn more about community engagement efforts on social media and video production.

We certainly obliged and hosted their team this morning and discussed best practices and exchanged various ideas between the two agencies. We wish them the very best success as they take a few ideas from our hometown back to Colorado. Networking between agencies is a great way to share ideas and expand outreach efforts. Safe travels!

Great job by Sgt. Banner’s shift last night. Sgt Banner was alerted to a suspect who walked inside Academy and stole a bicycle. The suspect fled on the bike as Sgt. Banner chased on foot. Sgt. Banner caught up to the suspect near S. Cherry Lane and I.H. 30 Service Road. The suspect was taken into custody without incident. It was later determined the suspect tossed a stolen knife and ammunition while trying to flee. The suspect also has a felony robbery warrant from the Fort Worth Police Department. The suspect was arrested and transported to the Tarrant County Juvenile Detention Center. Due to the age of the suspect, no additional charges identifying information is releasable.

Great job by Patrol and Dispatch Services. The stolen bike and property was returned to the business.

Photos from this morning’s Holiday for Heroes event where WSPD’s Finest sponsored a military family for Christmas this year. It was a great way to honor the service of our Armed Forces. Chief Cook, as a member of the AirPower Council, continues to support local initiatives that build stronger bonds with our military and defense community. Commander NAS JRB Fort Worth
Captain Beau Hufstetler welcomed our WSPD command staff at today’s event and the strong partnership between our agencies.

On behalf of our public safety team and Chief Cook and Chief Sanderson, thank you for making this one of the largest Christmas parades in our history! Of course, the weather helped also as it was gorgeous at step off time. This is what hometown is all about. Great job by our Mayor and City Council, City Manager Jeff James, our Citizens on Patrol volunteers, Parks and Recreation, Streets Department, and all of our police officers and fire fighters who made this a huge success. Shout out the White Settlement ISD Superintendent Frank Molinar for serving as the parade's Grand Marshal this year.

Here's some video perspective on just how big this year's parade was. Watch until the very end when the Christmas Tree is lit! City of White Settlement White Settlement Fire Department

Congratulations to Sergeant Lana Cook, Sergeant Frank Blaustein and Officer Payton Wyly for successfully graduating from a recent defensive tactics instructor school. The Gracie Survival Tactics training school is a defensive tactics system that incorporates techniques into an easy-to-learn system designed to help officers verbally and physically de-escalate situations while also overcoming resistant and physical assaults by suspects. These three officers will incorporate this training into our department’s defensive tactics program.

Please join Chief Cook in giving a shout out to Dispatcher Adrianne Stewart. She goes above and beyond and regularly prepares lunches for the officers on duty. She is also one of our primary Communication Training Officers along with Dispatcher Kelly Dennis, Katelynn Wright, and Manager Brandi Vineyard.

“Adrianne is always looking for ways to make our day bright and better,” said Chief Cook. “Even today, in the midst of dispatching, she was excited to showcase the holiday decorations in our Dispatch Center. Just as our other dispatchers do, she preforms with excellence in everything she does. Positive culture doesn’t just happen… it requires intentional mindset with support from all levels of the organization.”

Thank you Adrianne and all of our dispatchers who go above and beyond in service to others! We appreciate the job that you do for our officers and community!

Congratulations to Chief of Police Christopher Cook, who was elected to the Executive Board of the FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation National Command Course Association. As a 2022 graduate of the prestigious FBI National Command Course, Chief Cook was elected by peers from across the country. This Association represents small police and sheriff departments, which make up about 80% of law enforcement agencies across the country.

“I am grateful for the support from police chiefs and sheriffs across the U.S. for my candidacy and election to represent White Settlement and our noble profession,” said Chief Cook. “This position will enhance our community and department through peer-to-peer collaboration, training, and resources. I look forward to serving alongside some of the most inspiring and innovative leaders across the profession. Right here in Tarrant County, the vast majority of police agencies are representative of the size of departments that the NCCA serves, so WSPD will fit right in as we continue to move forward in public safety.”

We want to thank the Motorola team who has been on site for the past few weeks as the department transitions to a new computer-aided dispatch software, records management system, jail module, and mobile software for the officers in the cars. This project has been a long time coming with over a year of planning. As we onboard this new technology, officers and dispatchers will have better access to critical information when seconds count.

Great work and shout out to Sgt. Steven Person with our Investigative team and the initial patrol response. Using our Flock Safety License Plate Reader System, detectives solved this shooting case where the suspect fired numerous rounds at six teenagers.

"This is the third case where a suspect used a firearm to engage in a shooting that was solved by our Flock Safety system," said Chief Cook.

11/14/2023

We wanted to highlight incredible work by our Patrol and Dispatch Services team to avert a potential shooting on Sunday afternoon. Here's a news recap on the swift response by 2 first-line sergeants and 5 patrol officers. Thankful the suspect complied with our officer's commands and surrendered.

***IMPORTANT UPDATE TO SHOOTING THAT OCCURRED ON THURSDAY EVENING AT 8100 FOX FIRE LANE*** The shooting suspect has been arrested without incident at a nearby defense industry facility. Sgt. Person credits our Flock Safety Alert system to this apprehension which recorded the suspect vehicle in the area of the shooting. The suspect has been charged with six counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon (one count for each teenager that was shot at by the suspect).

Great work by the Patrol and CID teams!

“I made the scene and want to highlight the continued incredible work over the past few days related to this shooting which could have claimed several lives,” said Chief Cook. “Our license plate readers through Flock are a powerful crime fighting tool as evidenced by this case.”

Earlier this afternoon at 12:58 pm (Sunday, November 12), WSPD Officers responded to an emergency person with a weapon call in the 9200 block of Dale Lane from a frantic caller who claimed the suspect was going to shoot him over a personal issue related to a female friend. As Officers responded to this emergency situation, they arrived just in time as this suspect had walked to the victim’s front door armed with a .22 caliber rifle, shotgun and handgun. A total of seven WSPD officers arrived and gave loud verbal commands for the suspect to lay down and not touch the weapons. Thankfully, this suspect complied with the overwhelming force and was taken into custody without incident.

Suspect was arrested for Unlawfully Carrying of Weapon, Possession of Controlled Substance, and Terroristic Threat.

“Had officers arrived a few seconds later, this could have been a very different outcome,” said Chief Cook. “This showcases the types of situations our officers face on a routine basis. I am thankful this suspect complied with officer’s commands.”

Sgt. Stewart, Cpl. Armstrong, Officer Valladares, Officer Ramirez, Officer Loser, Sgt. Blaustein, and Officer Benningfield all responded to this call. Dispatchers Stewart and Stephens worked the console on this priority call.
