NPRPD Out & About in the Community

Both Corporal Karen Norris and School Resource Officer Gabe Gerena were busy talking to kids and parents, handing out NPRPD badge stickers, ushering kids in the police vehicles, not to mention a NPRPD-themed cornhole/bean bag toss game at Sims Park during the One Community Now’s great Hunger Walk/Fall Fest event to help end children hunger in Pasco County, Oct 2. Busy, but definitely smiles all around.

2021 NPRPD K-9 Fundraiser

We found a new recruit for the New Port Richey Police Department’s K9 Unit even though Dalmatians are usually fire dogs! K9 Officer Eck and K9 Officer Fitch with their partners against crime, Shadow and Havoc, respectively. Thanks to The Doggie Salon (that’s owner Janis in the spots) and Dented Keg Ale Works for this¬† fundraising Bark Fest for the K9 Unit. Both businesses are in the Stonehaven Shops just across the bridge on the US19 side corner of Main Street and River Road. Visit them along with other great businesses and services at Stonehaven, River Plaza, and the shopping center across the street!

2021 Electric Drive Week Tailgate

2021 Drive Electric Week Tailgate made a tremendous comeback on Saturday, October 2, in Downtown New Port Richey, Florida in the Railroad Square District! We had many owners/dealers create a quite the line up of Electric Vehicles (EV) such as models from Tesla, Volkswagen, Ford, Chevrolet, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and even Harley Davidson. Big EV supporter Mayor Robert Marlowe was in attendance to display his own Tesla and to talk to folks on the benefits of EVs and to fix any misconceptions about them. Thanks to New Port Richey Parks and Recreation staff Dimitri, Zach and Corey for setting up and running the event.
