[ARCHIVED] Doney Park Neighborhood Watch Meeting - Thursday, October 2, 2014

Flagstaff, AZ – Coconino County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jim Driscoll and District 4 Supervisor Mandy Metzger would like to invite residents of the Doney Park community to attend the monthly Neighborhood Watch meeting on Thursday, October 2, 2014. The meeting will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Summit Fire District Station 32 and Administrative Offices located at 8905 Koch Field Road Flagstaff, AZ.

Chief Deputy Jim Driscoll will be at the meeting to encourage continued neighborhood participation and to share information. Chuck Jones who is retired from the position of Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigations and is currently a Cold Case Investigator for the Sheriff’s Office will speak about investigating older unsolved homicide cases.

In 2005, the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office developed a Cold Case Squad to review cases that have not been solved. There are over 28 unsolved homicide cases that occurred in Coconino County and which are being reviewed by the Cold Case Squad. Some of these cases date back to 1955 when many forensic tools were unavailable for investigations. All members of the squad are volunteers. Their background and experience range from forensic nursing, to crime lab analyses.

The goal of the Cold Case Squad is to be able to state with confidence that everything that could be done to try to solve a case either is being done or has been done. Whenever possible, evidence from these cases is re-examined using the newest scientific methods. For a list of our Cold Cases, please visit http://www.coconino.az.gov/index.aspx?NID=684.

Jeff Taylor who is a teacher at Flagstaff High School and who was chosen as the 2014 Coconino County Teacher of the year will speak about his career and his passion for education.
