Meet the newest member of the Talladega Police Department

Andor, an 18-month-old Belgian Malinois, and handler Daniel Chesser will head to Indiana for training this weekend. While Andor officially works for the Talladega Police Department, he will also be available to the Talladega County Sheriff’s Office and other police departments in the area.
The newest member of the Talladega Police Department is an 18-month-old Belgian Malinois named Andor. His partner and handler will be patrolman Daniel Chesser, and the two will be heading off to complete their training together this weekend.

"We're really happy to have progressed to this point with our canine program," Chief Jason Busby said Wednesday. "I would like to thank the manager and council who backed us up, the generous support of the Talladega County Sheriff's Office and all the private businesses and citizens who contributed. I think they will see pretty quickly what a great asset having a dog of this type is to the public safety of the citizens of this city and county."

Andor has already been trained in narcotics detection, tracking and apprehension, Busby said. "He's very impressive."

Chesser and Andor will be heading to Indiana Sunday for a six week course to let the dog and handler learn to work closely together, Busby explained. "It's intense physical and mental training, that covers a lot of legal issues, too," he said. "This facility is world renowned, they have dogs serving in all branches of the military and with law enforcement agencies worldwide."

When they come back, their vehicle should be fully outfitted, also.

This is not Chesser's first time working with a canine, he said. He also served as a handler with the Harpersville Police Department for about four years.

"I've always loved dogs," he said. "And I have always believed that dogs are an absolutely crucial part of police work."

Although the dog and handler both work for the Talladega Police Department, they will be available to other agencies in the area as well, especially since the Talladega County Sheriff's Office helped provide some of the financing.

Veterans Park Renovations

Bird's Eye View At the Council meeting of July 8, 2013 the Council approved a contract with Waites Construction for the renovation of Veterans Park. The park will be closed to the public beginning Wednesday, July 17th to allow for construction.

Items addressed in this project include:

  • Reshaping of the drainage channel
  • Completion of the northern walking track
  • Installation of new pedestrian bridges
  • Installation of underground park lighting
  • Construction of overflow parking lot

The renovations will take place over the next 120-150 days, during which time the Park will be closed for all activities. During this period citizens are encouraged to utilize the walking tracks at Hill-Pope Park, Duncan Pinkston Park, and the Alabama School for the Deaf.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. The City looks forward to reopening the revamped Veterans Park in the near future for all to enjoy.

Safe Routes to School Project

Elevated Cross Walk Construction of the City's Safe Routes to School project, funded by the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) in 2012, will commence at the end of July. The City partnered with the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB) to apply for $150,000.00 in funding to improve the walkability of South Street and surround areas. These improvements will include:

  • Construction of new sidewalks on Astrid Place, Johnson Street, and Norman C. Woods Street.
  • Installation of multiple elevated crosswalks
  • Installation of ADA compliant curb cuts
  • Crosswalk striping

Triple J. Construction, the project contractor, is expected to begin work on July 22, 2013. The timeline for completion is approximately seven weeks.

The completion of this work will provide increased opportunities for students at AIDB, Zora Ellis Junior High, and Graham Elementary, to walk to school each day. All residents of the area will benefit from the elevated crosswalks, which will make pedestrians more visible to drivers. Elevated crosswalks also serve to calm the speed of traffic in residential areas, which traffic counts of the area have deemed to be an issue of concern.
