Henderson PD Reaches Out

The Henderson Police Department is inviting the public to a community outreach event.

In an effort to create more direct lines of communication between the police department and the citizens we serve, the Henderson Police Department is starting a new program. Officers plan to meet with members of the community and listen to their concerns in a face-to-face manner. The police department will then address those concerns in an effort to meet our goal of making Henderson the safest city in the country by providing premier police services through partnerships with our community.

This event is an opportunity to ask members of the police department any questions regarding laws, the police role, or voice suggestions. The Henderson Police Department looks forward to enhancing communication with the community.

Manhunt Monday - Diamond Griffith

A teenager accused of burglary will face charges in adult court, if you can help find him. Our suspect is only 17 years old, but his criminal activities mean he's going to be treated like an adult in court.
Diamond Griffith is 5' 5"and weighs only about 100 pounds. He may be small, but he's accused of a big-time crime.

Metro says he and a partner were armed with a shotgun and a handgun when they broke into an apartment in April. The resident came back before they left, so they fought with her before running away.
He has the word "mariposa" tattooed down the inside of his right arm. On the outside of his arms he has the name "Dee", some dice, the word "Stup" with a dollar-sign "S".... and the words "Money Gang" across his hands.
Diamond Griffith was allowed to post bail, and then he skipped his court date.
If you've seen him, you can bring him to justice by calling Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
