This site is not monitored 24/7 in an emergency, dial 911.

Today we honor the lives lost, the survivors, and heroes. We will never forget.

Breaking News: This evening a 12 year-old called 911 reporting he believed there was someone in his home on North Quaker Lane; he heard the door opening, someone rummaging through cabinet/drawers, and eventually the door closing. Within minutes, multiple WHPD units were on scene. Simultaneous with their arrival, it was reported that a neighborhood resident one street west of North Quaker Lane (Auburn Road) had confronted a man who had burglarized the second home on Auburn Road & pinned him to the ground while he was trying to flee. Half of the units responded to Auburn Road & took the suspect into custody without incident while the other half remained on North Quaker to ensure the first home was clear & the boy was safe. The resident who located the suspect sustained a scraped knee and was evaluated on scene by medical personnel. No other injuries or thefts, and we believe that the suspect acted alone.
