Grant Money Makes Purchase of New Coats Possible - February 19, 2019 - During the month of February 2019, officers of the Chillicothe Police Department (CPD) were outfitted with new winter coats and search/duty gloves. These items were purchased with grant monies received from the 2019 Local Law Enforcement Block Grant. Of the $9,984.60 awarded through the grant, $5,874.46 was utilized for the purchase of the coats and gloves for all 18 members of the police department. The police department decided to purchase the Blauer Gore-Tex lined Cruiser coats due to their high heat retaining values and professional look. The police department patch was affixed to the left upper arm of the coat and an American Flag was affixed to the right upper arm. The Hexarmor search and duty gloves are made with super fabric which are cut and needle prick resistant. Sgt. Jeremy Stephens applied for and received this grant. Sgt. Stephens and Chief Maples shared the same vision on the professional but comfortable look they were hoping to achieve.

Prescription Drug Drop Box - January 16, 2019 - SPECIAL NEWS RELEASE - Last year, Edison Turner, a Life Scout with Troop 120, saw a large grocery bag full of outdated or unused medications and asked his father, Eric, what happened to the medication. It was during that conversation that Edison decided what his Eagle Scout project would be: acquiring a Prescription Drug Drop Box for Chillicothe. "I started to do some research on the internet and found out there wasn't one in our area," Turner said. "So then I talked to the city council, city administrator, police chief and fire department and pharmacies to see what I could do and where we could put one in Chillicothe," Turner said. "They all agreed it would be a great idea." In June, Turner began working with Police Chief Jon Maples to devise a plan for placing the Prescription Drug Drop Box in the police department.

"I was thrilled when Edison came to me with this project," Maples said. "Establishing a Prescription Drug Drop Box in Chillicothe was one of the things I wanted to do for the community. It turned into a great partnership." Chief Maples said until now the Cameron and Carrollton had the closest drop boxes. Any outdated or unused prescriptions, over the counter medications, pet medications, vitamins, prescription ointments and even prescription patches can be placed in the secure box, located within the lobby of the Chillicothe Police Department, located at 613 Walnut St. From there, this medication will be properly disposed of by our local law enforcement instead of being flushed into our waste water system or thrown in the trash.

No needles or other sharps, syringes, inhalers, aerosol cans, lotions, liquids or peroxide can be dropped off in the box. Maples said he is looking into a similar drop box for those items. The locked, secure, steel box was purchased with donations from businesses and individuals in the Chillicothe area. It can be accessed 24 hours a day seven days a week. As part of the project, Turner noted that area pharmacies now have cards that details what can and cannot be dropped off in the prescription drug drop box. The card also includes a map to the police department and a small identifying photo of the box. When one of the two detectives within the Chillicothe Police Department who have a key empty the box, the contents will then be incinerated.

"Everyone I talked to along the way was very supportive and all agreed this was a great idea and the community could really benefit from it," Turner said to the crowd of about 20 people who gathered at the Prescription Drug Drop Box unveiling on Monday, January 14, 2019.

Special News Release

On December 8, 2018, at approximately 1645 hours, Chillicothe Dispatch received a call from a citizen in reference to a reckless driver. The complainant advised that they were nearly struck by the vehicle, along with the same vehicle nearly striking a school bus and a vehicle head on, in the 1000 block of South Washington Street. Officers responded to the area but were unable to locate the vehicle in question. After some time, officers located the vehicle and attempted to stop the vehicle due to the danger to other motorists and pedestrians on the roadway. Before contact could be made, the driver drove off, failing to yield to emergency vehicles that were attempting to contact the driver. The driver made his way to U.S. 36 Highway westbound. Livingston County Deputies took over the pursuit of the vehicle near the Grand River bridge. Deputies and an officer followed the vehicle into Caldwell County, Missouri, where the driver struck the rear of another vehicle on the roadway, causing a traffic crash ending the pursuit. After the crash, the Missouri State Highway Patrol took over the crash investigation and is now leading the investigation as there is a concern the suspect at some point shot himself. A preliminary investigation reveals the subject was under the influence of alcohol and in possession of a firearm. Chief Maples met with the on-duty sergeant and officers involved. A preliminary administrative investigation shows that staff involved followed Chillicothe Police Department policy. Chief Maples also met with Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox since both agencies were involved. Our thoughts and prayers are with the driver and passenger of the vehicle the suspect struck. It's reported that the passenger did not have injuries, and the driver received minor injuries. - Chief Maples

On Thursday, November 15, 2018, officers were advised by a citizen of a scam they had received through the mail. The citizen received a letter from a "bank". The letter states an account holder recently died and had the same last name as the citizen who received the letter. It further states for the citizen to contact the bank to retrieve the remaining funds in the account of the deceased account holder. The letter states for the citizen to contact the employee through a personal email account and not a work related email and the citizen and employee would then split the remaining substantial funds. This is a SCAM.

If you are unsure of the legitimacy of a document, then conduct some research or ask your local law enforcement for some guidance.

On 09/02/2018, officers attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 300 block of South Washington Street. When the vehicle didn't stop in a business parking lot and continued west on South Street, then south on Graves Street, then back west on Olive Street before stopping for officers, they became suspicious. Officers made contact with a 39-year-old female and her 32-year-old male passenger and learned that the female actually had a suspended driver's license. Officers investigated further into the stop and became suspicious of possible drug activity at which time they requested a K9 respond to the scene.

Upon arrival of Brookfield Police Department K9 and its handler, the K9 alerted to the possible presence of narcotics. A search of the vehicle yielded evidence consistent with the sales of narcotics as well as drug paraphernalia and both individuals were arrested.

During the investigation, Chief, the Detective, and officers learned that the female hides narcotics on her body. Officers advised the female of the allegation to which she denied and refused to cooperate. Officers then applied for and were granted a Livingston County search warrant to retrieve the narcotics from the female's body. With a search warrant in hand, a search of the female (by a female officer) yielded a bag of crystal substance that is consistent with methamphetamine from the female's body. The male and female have since been charged with delivery of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance in Livingston County courts and are held at Daviess DeKalb Regional Jail. We would like to thank Livingston County Judge James Valbracht, Prosecutor Adam Warren, and the Brookfield Police Department for their K9 and Sergeant.
