Dover – The Delaware State Police and The American Legion held Trooper Youth Week Graduation exercises Friday afternoon, June 30, 2017, at the Delaware State Police Training Academy in Dover Delaware.

13 young men and women from across the State, that endured a weeklong training regimen which parallels much of what a Delaware State Trooper would undergo while attending the State Police Training Academy, were awarded their graduation certificates.

In addition to the rigors of the daily physical fitness schedule, the cadets attended classes that ranged from crash investigation to evidence detection and fraud investigation. During the entire week the cadets took up residence at the academy to give them a better understanding about the profession of law enforcement and what it takes to become a police officer.

This is the 46th year for Trooper Youth Week and without the sponsorship of the American Legion the program could not be possible.

The 30-year-old pedestrian was airlifted from the scene by Delaware State Police Aviation to Christiana Medical Center (CMC) where he is listed in critical condition.

The 39-year-old female driver was transported by EMS to CMC with non-life-threatening injuries and released.

This crash remains under investigation by the Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit.  Traffic in the area was impacted for approximately two and a half hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

Delaware State Police Application Process Joins the Web

Capture

Presented by the Director of Public Information Sergeant Richard D. Bratz

The Delaware State Police is pleased to announce the application process for employment with the Division is now on-line with the State of Delaware Vendor JobAps. The system went live on June 22, 2017 after nine-months of configuration with JobAps, who has been the state vendor for the past few years.  The State Police’s application requirements differ significantly from the other State Agencies.  These proprietary requirements include comprehensive background investigations, physical testing, panel interviews, and medical testing that was not previously part of the State’s contract with JobAps.

The newly designed JobAps module for the State Police replaces the old paper application for all positions within the Division. This on-line access will enhance the State Police’s efficiency internally, but more importantly for those applying for positions with the Division. It is always a challenge recruiting for law enforcement positions and having an applicant complete paper applications was a hurdle, especially for the men and women serving in our military.

The Delaware State Police accepts applications for the position of Trooper Recruit continuously and is currently accepting applications for 92nd DSP Recruit Class tentatively scheduled for 2018.  However, applicants wishing to begin the testing process in early August must have their applications submitted in JobAps by 4:00 p.m. on July 14, 2017.  Applicants received after this date will be considered for a future testing cycle.   For more information, or to apply for a position with the Delaware State Police, visit www.BecomeaTrooper.com .

Jarel M. Williams

 

Presented by Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier

South Dover – The Delaware State Police have arrested a Dover man after information was received linking him to burglaries and a series of robberies in the south Dover area.

Jarel M. Williams, 26, was taken into custody by Dover Police Department at his residence located on Alder Road Tuesday June 27, 2017, after information was received by detectives that he was involved in burglaries to local gas stations and the recent rash of robberies in Kent County.

Detectives were able to associate Williams to two burglaries that were committed near the end of April at the Valero gas station located at 1491 South Governors Avenue as well as two that were committed at the other Valero located at 1612 South Governors Avenue.  In all four cases, Williams smashed a glass door to gain entry, causing more than $2,000.00 in total damage, and then removed over $1,500.00 worth of cigarettes.  Clothing associated with his burglaries were identified through surveillance images and would later be helpful in the recent robbery investigations.

After taking Williams into custody, a search warrant was conducted at his residence and detectives located some of the clothing he wore during the commission of the crimes, in particular, a white hooded sweatshirt that had the words; REHO-BOTH-BEACH printed on the front.  This sweatshirt was worn by Williams during one of the burglaries and in two of the robberies.  A search warrant was also conducted on a vehicle in which Williams was seen operating just prior to his arrest and during the search, a 12 gauge shotgun was recovered.  A computer inquiry revealed the shotgun has been reported stolen from a residence in Frederica on June 13, 2017.

Jarel Williams was transported to Dover Police Department and charged by troopers with three counts of Robbery 1st, three counts of Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon, seven counts of Wearing a Disguise During the Commission of a Felony, two counts of Burglary 3rd, four counts of Conspiracy 2nd, Receiving a Stolen Firearm, two counts of Possession of Burglary Tools, four counts of Theft, four counts of Criminal Mischief.  He was arraigned at JP2 and committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $361,750.00 cash bond.

If anyone has any information on these incidents or additional suspects, they are asked to contact Sergeant J. Lloyd at 302-698-8434.
