Update and photos…Patrol has finished up on Westgate after locating the driver , narcotics, and weapons . The vehicle has been towed and the driver, Courtney Taylor, has been taken to to the city jail for booking with charges pending.
Original post…Patrolman are working in the area of the 900 block of WestGate Park after a driver fled from a traffic stop. The driver has been taken into custody and police are doing a secondary search for a possible passenger. Some concerned citizens passing by believed this to be either a robbery or a problem involving the nearest convenience store, that is NOT the case this is a stand-alone traffic stop we have the driver in custody and will update with pictures and information quickly. Also any information that schools in the area have been locked down is not correct police feel no need to lock down schools as there is no immediate threat. Update to follow.

Day 4 of the K9 seminar was a huge success. After three outstanding days of training and certification handlers got to put their dogs through an exciting and fun series of competitions to see who is the best of the best! Pictured here is just a taste of the patrol competition. While moving through a dark building filled with smoke, obstacles, flashing lights, loud sounds, and other distractions that any team on duty could face any day of the week in a real life situation, handlers had to transition seamlessly between locating suspects and locating narcotics. This was an outstanding exercise that all thoroughly enjoyed.
