      1. Sgt. Bivens worked with CID Detectives investigating a homocide on Ohio Street in Helena Sunday evening around 6:30 p.m. One young man was the victim of a shooting incident and another was wounded. Several arrests were made that evening. Investigations are still ongoing with witnesses being interviewed and statements being taken.

      2. Sgt. Bivens is currently investigating a Terroristic Act that was committed on South 7th Street at the corner of Plaza Street. Several shots were fired into the house on the corner of these streets. No one was injured but bullets were found inside the house. A suspect has been named but not found as of yet.

      3. Sgt. Bivens is investigating a residential burglary on South 7th Street where a 60" Sony Big Screen tv was taken. Sgt. Bivens located the tv that night with the help of the owner and her friends. Charges are pending.

      4. Special Operations are in the works for Friday and Saturday for security for the Davis Funeral.

      5. Sgt. Bivens is investigating a Forgery and Theft by Receiving on checks taken and cashed that belong to Marquita Trancy. A suspect has been named and we are in the process of locating him for questioning.

        Wants and Needs:

        1. Ballistic shields and helmets for team members safety during dynamic entries. We can possibly obtain these from the Army on the LESO plan. The shields will stop all small arms fire and some rifle rounds. We are still outgunned on the streets as the shooting on Ohio Street showed everyone.

        Future Plans:

          1. We will be conducting classes and practical exercises in entry on houses with high risk situations.

          2. We will also have continueing classes on active shooter and meth labs.

            Gas usage for Black Crown Victoria $0.00
