Good information about a phone scam going around. Also, if someone asks you to make a payment to iTunes Support/IRS/Electric Company/anyone else using an iTunes gift card or any gift card it is probably a scam. Don't fall for it.

Fun stuff for the kids

See what the Library staff recommends... This makes me wonder, what would you recommend? I like sci-fi, so for some fun summer reading I would say read Orson Scott Card's Ender series. Start with Ender's Game, then read the Ender's Shadow series. Fantastic books. Not sure what anyone else at the PD would say. That might be an interesting question....humm?

Rogers Police Department SEX OFFENDER NOTIFICATION BULLETIN Date of Issue: June 12, 2018 The Rogers Police Department is releasing the following information pursuant to section 13 of Act 989 of 1997, The Sex and Child Offender Registration and the Community Notification Guidelines promulgated by the Commission on Abuse. Act 989 authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offender’s release, when the release of such information will enhance public safety and protection. The individual who appears on this notification has been convicted of an offense that requires registration with the Arkansas Crime Information Center. The offender has advised the Police Department that he/she will be residing at the following address in Rogers: Homeless, Rogers, AR THE OFFENDER IS NOT WANTED BY THE POLICE AT THIS TIME. This notification is not intended to increase fear; rather it is our belief that an informed public is a safer public. The Rogers Police Department has no legal authority to direct where a sex offender lives. Unless court ordered restrictions exist, the offender is constitutionally free to live wherever he/she chooses. SEX AND CHILD OFFENDER FACT SHEET: Offender’s Risk Level: 3 Offender’s Name: Dennis Wayne Smith DOB: 6-4-87 Offender’s Physical Description: Hgt. 5’6” Wgt. 172 Race: W Gender: M Eyes: Brown Hair: Brown Employer / School: Don’s Cold Storage Description of the offense for which the offender was convicted, or legal basis for the offender’s confinement: This offender was convicted of two counts of Indecency with a Minor. The offense involved two females 7-9 years old. Sex offenders have always lived in our communities, but it wasn’t until the passage of the Sex and Child Offender Registration Act, that law enforcement even knew where they were living. In many cases, law enforcement is now able to share that information with the public. Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass a registered sex offender will not be tolerated. Further, such abuse could potentially end law enforcement’s ability to conduct community notifications on these offenders. We believe that the only person who benefits if the community notification ends is the sex offender, since many of these offenders derive their power from the opportunity that secrecy provides them. Rogers Police Department Phone: (479) 636-4141 1905 S. Dixieland Rd. CID: (479) 621-1129 Rogers, AR 72758 FAX: (479) 621-1178

Don't forget

On Tuesday, June 5th, at approximately 12:45 am, the Rogers Police Department responded to the Boar’s Nest at 4404 West Walnut Street for a reported disturbance. After investigating the scene, the responding officers cited four adult males for Disorderly Conduct as they had been identified as being involved in the altercation. All four were released at the scene. The Rogers Police Department continued to follow-up on the investigation throughout the week, interviewing witnesses and trying to locate video footage. During the investigation it was alleged that one of the combatants was making derogatory remarks as to the sexual orientation of one of the others involved in the altercation. As the State of Arkansas has no statute covering crimes of this nature, commonly referred to as hate crimes, there is no mechanism at the State level for officers or prosecutors to consider additional charges or enhancements. Such statutes do exist at the Federal level. On Friday, June 8th, the Rogers Police Department contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for assistance with this investigation, specifically to review the case for violation of any of the Federal hate crime statutes. As this is an ongoing investigation, reports are not available for release at this time.
