Virtual Block Watch

Virtual Block Watch logo

The Phoenix Police Department has launched a new crime fighting program called "Virtual Block Watch". The idea is simple, if you have a security camera let us know that you do. Then, if there is a crime in the area we will know where we might be able to find video footage of the suspect.

Registering your camera not only helps deter crime, but assists the Department in its overall crime prevention strategy in your neighborhood. You aren't granting us control of your camera or sharing control, simply letting us know you have it so we know where another set of eyes are to help us fight crime. You can register and become a part of the program now

Close Friends Remember Commander Killed in the Line of Dutyhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/1105Police 4/1/2020 11:00:00 PMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIcxAN1UN-0Close Friends Remember Commander Killed in the Line of Duty<div class="ExternalClassEF681DB33C964E40A7BD01E6081C34F0"><html> <p>​Sunday's deadly shooting of a Phoenix Police Commander is leaving an unthinkable hole in the department and in his family. <br><br>Charmane Osborn, a lieutenant with the Phoenix Police Department, worked with Commander Greg Carnicle for about 20 years. Greg was her boss twice, as well as good family friends. <br><br>"He has that stern look a lot of the time, and once you got to know him, you knew what a true softy he really was," Lt. Osborn said. "He had this dry sense of humor that would tell jokes."<br><br>Lt. Osborn said Commander Carnicle was tough, decisive, and led from the front. <a href="/newsroom/police/1098" target="_blank">Which is exactly what he was doing on that final Sunday shift where he went first, followed by two younger officers, into a home for a domestic fight call</a>. All three were shot, but only the younger two officers survived. <br><br>Lt. Osborn said the commander was always looking out for the best interests of the Phoenix Police Department. <br><br>"I actually talked with Greg last Tuesday night," Lt. Osborn explained through tears. "He was encouraging me to make sure I was going to take the commander's process and test. Just ever supportive and trying to ensure that I was making smart career choices."   <br><br>Behind the badge was a caring family man, Osborn explained. Commander Carnicle was married to his wife, Ann, and together, had four children: CiCi, Rachel, John, and Veronica. He also had four grandchildren and two more on the way. <br><br>"So devoted to his family and making sure that his kids knew that he loved them and that he was involved in their lives by coaching sports, coaching his grandson," the lieutenant explained. <br><br>In the last few years, the growing Carnicle family had the chance to go on a cruise together and attend numerous Diamondbacks games – Greg was a big fan. <br><br>As his family, friends, and the force mourn this loss, Lt. Osborn said she knows what Commander Carnicle would say if he could.<br><br>"He would be like 'What are you doing? There's no crying in police work. Suck it up buttercup!'" Lt. Osborn smiled, "This is how we do this. Keep going. Carry the mission forward." <br><br><a target="_blank" href="/newsroom/police/1103">Read more about Commander Carnicle's 31 year career with the Phoenix Police Department.</a></p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolice

Phoenix Police Commander Killed, Two Officers Injured in Shootinghttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/1098Police 3/30/2020 6:00:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/9UIAPW98ha8Phoenix Police Commander Killed, Two Officers Injured in Shooting<div class="ExternalClass69DFDB0964A34A1498FCCCAD2CE32836"><html> <p>​The Phoenix Police Department is mourning the loss of a highly decorated leader.  Commander Greg Carnicle was shot and killed while working a domestic fight call.</p> <p>On Sunday afternoon, March 29, Commander Carnicle and two other officers were called to the area of Pinnacle Peak and 40th Drive in North Phoenix.  The caller advised that one of the roommates was acting peculiar and the other roommates wanted him to leave.</p> <p>When the officers arrived on scene, they were directed to 22-year-old Jacob Emry Mcilveen.  As the officers talked with McIlveen, he remained calm.  The officers told him he would have to leave and helped him remove some of his property.  At some point, while they were taking his property outside, McIlveen slammed the front door on the officers.</p> <p>Additional officers went back inside the house to contact Mcilveen once again.  They could not see him; however they were able to talk to him while he remained upstairs.  As the officers were climbing the stairs, Mcilveen came out of one of the rooms upstairs and began shooting at the officers.  His shots struck Commander Greg Carnicle, Officer Marissa Dowhan and Officer Alicia Hubert. One of the other officers who had remained downstairs fired in the direction of Mcilveen. </p> <p>The injuries prevented the officers from getting out of the house. Additional officers already on scene were able to get the three injured officers from the home and secure the scene.  The Special Assignments Unit responded and attempted to negotiate Mcilveen's surrender. </p> <p>After several hours, Mcilveen came out of the house armed with a handgun. An officer shot at Mcilveen stopping the threat. Mcilveen was pronounced dead at the scene. </p> <p>Commander Carnicle and Officers Hubert and Dowhan were transported to a local hospital where Commander Carnicle was pronounced deceased.  There were no additional injuries.</p> <p>Commander Carnicle spent 31 years with the Phoenix Police Department. He served as officer, Sergeant, Lieutenant and finally promoting to Commander in 2015.  He held supervisory roles in our Special Assignments Unit, K-9, Professional Standards Bureau and the Crime Lab.  The 56-year-old was set to retire this fall and wanted to finish out this time on the force back where he started, protecting the streets of Phoenix.  Last summer, he approached Chief Jeri Williams and asked if he could be the duty commander for patrol.  </p> <p>Commander Carnicle was very well liked among his fellow officers.  He was known for his dry sense of humor and his direct, yet caring style.  He leaves behind a wife and four adult children.</p> <p>Officer Dowhan has been with the department for 3 years and is 23 years old.  Officer Hubert is 22 years old and has spent just under 2 years with the department.  Despite serious physical injuries, they are both expected to recover.</p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolice
