Camp Verde National Night Out, October 2, 2018

In anticipation of the rainfall from the remnants of Hurricane Rosa, any residents that may need sand bags can pick them up at the Town of Camp Verde Maintenance yard on Fain Street, at the Verde Lakes Club house, or at the County Yard on Cherry Road. For further questions about sand bags contact the Streets Department at 928-554-0823. Don't know the amount of rain we will be getting, but better to be safe and prepared ahead of time in case it comes down all at once.

National Night Out is coming up tomorrow night, October 2, and will be held at the Camp Verde Town Gym located next to the Town Hall complex from 5PM-7PM. Due to the predicted rain and uncertain weather, the BBQ has been moved indoors to the gym, so you will still be able to enjoy hot dogs, burgers, cotton candy, and ice cream with your neighbors, police, and fire personnel. The outside displays and events will still take place as weather permits, so bring a raincoat and umbrella just in case.

Update on the Special Olympics Tip-a-Cop event. We had a successful event over this last weekend and were able to raise $1,685. for the Arizona Special Olympics. Everyone involved had a fun time and it was great to see so many people donating time and money to this cause. Thanks to Dyanna and Nancy at The Corner Table and all of the restaurant staff for their participation, you really made this a great event. For those that would like to make a donation, you can visit their website at

Please remember the first patches will be sold at the Marshal's Office booth during National Night Out. Patches will then be available through the month of October from any officer or by stopping by the Marshal's Office. #pinkpatchproject

The federal government is set to conduct the first-ever test of a nationwide system to send emergency alerts to almost all cellphones in the country on October 3. The "Presidential Alert" system uses the same wireless alerts smartphone users receive on AMBER alerts or severe weather warnings but allows the president, or another authorized official, to send simultaneous warnings to almost every smartphone in the country at the same time. According to FEMA officials, the "presidential level" message, officials say, could be used to alert the nation if there were a risk of an imminent attack or multiple terrorist attacks. The wireless alert will go out to most cell phone carriers at 2:18 p.m. EDT, followed by alerts to the broadcast emergency alert system at 2:20 p.m. on October 3. Wireless alerts will use the same special loud tone and vibration as other emergency alerts at will read "Presidential Alert: This is a test of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed." For more information go to the link provided:

The Camp Verde Marshal’s Office will be participating in the Pink Patch Project, which is a public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this terrible disease. During the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Marshal’s Office deputies will be wearing pink shoulder patches designed just for this campaign to show support for this cause. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the U.S. with 1 in 8 women having a lifetime risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2018, more than 260,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women and more than 2,500 cases in men. However, it is a disease that can be effectively treated with surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy and chemotherapy. Residents and the public are invited to show their support for breast cancer awareness and women’s health by purchasing their own special pink patch for $10 each, with the proceeds going to the fight against this cancer. Deputies will have patches in their patrol vehicles and the public is encouraged to contact a deputy as they are around town to purchase one in person. How to purchase a patch • Patches can be purchased in person at the Marshal’s Office at 646 S. 1st Street or from any on-duty patrol deputy encountered in Town • Patches will be available at the National Night Out event at the Town Hall complex on October 2 • Patches can be purchased by mail with a minimum donation of $10 per patch. Make your check payable to Town of Camp Verde, and mail to: Camp Verde Marshal’s Office, Attn: Pink Patch, 646 S. 1st Street, Camp Verde, AZ 86322 Pink Patch proceeds will be provided to The BreastCare Center at Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) in Prescott, Arizona.
