Need some inspiration for the Built for My Community contest? We asked the Tempe Police Department some questions about their police station. Here’s what they had to say:

Q: How would you describe your police station to someone who has never seen it?
A: The Tempe Police Department Headquarters is a three-story building that backs up to a small mountain (butte), commonly referred to as “A-Mountain” for the large cement “A” that represents Arizona State University, the main campus of which is adjacent to our building. The building’s exterior is made of small stones and dark concrete, designed to blend in naturally with the mountain behind it.

Q: What do you like most about your police station?
A: Our headquarters building is located across the street from City Hall and within the downtown Tempe entertainment/restaurants/arts district, commonly known as “Mill Avenue.” During the daytime, we have exceptional choices for meals within close walking distance. At night, we’re often greeted by sounds of nearby music events and celebrations as we walk to our cars.

THE LAWSON FAMILY IS ASKING FOR YOUR HELP TO KEEP A COP KILLER IN PRISON The family, friends, and fellow officers of Robert (Beefy) Lawson would like your help sending letters to the state of Minnesota to encourage the Department of Corrections to keep Audie Fox behind bars during his parole "life" hearing in January of 2021. Our friends at the Officer Down Memorial Page make sending a letter or email easy. Simply go to https://www.odmp.org/noparole/prepare/7976. It just takes a few minutes to help this family and this community. The podcast tells the story of Beefy Lawson thru the eyes of the officers involved and the family left behind - explaining how this deputy was brutally executed and the effect it had on this small community. Thanks for taking the time to listen and learn about this amazing hero from northern Minnesota. Our mission is to make sure Robert (Beefy) Lawson's service and sacrifice is never forgotten. Blessed are the Peacemakers. https://www.officerdownmemorialpodcast.com/1462300/6896336-the-robert-beefy-lawson-story
A historian's Inquiry into the life and brutal murder of Maine's Cumberland County Sheriff's Deputy Ebenezer Parker is nearly completed and the writing of the book is underway. Deputy Parker was the first law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in Maine in 1808. I have worked with the current Sheriff for nearly two years to solve the "cold case" of Deputy Parker and the results will be published in the spring of 2021.

It is simply exhausting how some people think they can just ignore their connection to the past and would rather the media either shut up already or cover all of the spill over from peaceful protest. This tactic is widely known in white supremacist circles. We are on to you. Sorry!
