The City of Bend Police Department goes above and beyond the call of duty again!
Bend, OregonThis morning I posted a story about a sweet 9 year old named Kayden who didn't think anyone cared about her because no one wanted to come to her birthday party. I know she now knows that's not true. She made many new friends today who showed her that she is cared about by taking time out of their busy lives to show up at her party. A HUGE thank you to my friend Juli McConkey and the City of Bend Police officers. 5 police cars showed up and many police officers. They brought her flowers and a gift. It was truly priceless!!! It's something I'll never forget and I was just a guest at the party. We live in an amazing community with an incredible police department.

Congrats to two of our recruits for earning outstanding honors at the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST)!

Recruit Deputy Jose Segovia (left) just won the DPSST Outstanding Defensive Tactics Award for Basic Police Class #BP369. This award is given to the recruit student who shows exemplary skill in control and arrest tactics, verbalization and professionalism across a variety of training scenarios. The recipent must demonstrate proficiency in controlling hostile persons -- a skill that reduces injuries for all involved.

Congrats also to Jail Deputy Recruit Mani Morrell, who won the DPSST Dr. Ernest M. Ogard Jr. Academic Achievement Award for Basic Corrections Class #BCL028. This award is given to the top academic student in each Basic Corrections Class. In a competitive environment with intense coursework, this is an extremely difficult distinction to earn.

We're proud to have both recruits joining our team!

Update on our Trooper who was shot yesterday in Lane County. Senior Trooper Gerald Ellis is a 8 year veteran and assigned to the Springfield Area Command - Patrol Division. As most of you know, his ballistic vest most likely saved his life as he only received minor injuries. Following the incident, the 30-year-old male suspect was located and arrested.

We would like to thank all those who have offered their kind words and support through this traumatic incident. We will update you as we can, but this is an active investigation being led by the Lane County Sheriff's Office.

OSP Superintendent Travis Hampton addressed the entire agency today, 1300 employees, with the following message, “It never ceases to amaze me when I hear the big blue machine rolling to support one of our own. From fellow troopers- to dispatch- to SWAT- to the immediate care system…the OSP universe centered on welfare of one brave young man- as it should have. I’m very proud of you all, especially our trooper involved in the event. He displayed a great deal of courage and acted in the best traditions of the Oregon State Police.”

Never go on patrol without your vest!

God bless, hope he's back on duty soon.

Thank goodness for those vests. So happy you are okay.

Thank you for posting! I was hoping he was doing alright. 🙌💙

Prayers for a full and speedy recovery. Thankful he is alive!
