Today we had a visit from four members of the Arizona Department of Economic Security Office of Community Engagement. They were Rosalva Zimmerman, Sharon Pierson, Justin Harris, and Edd Schommer. They met with Chief Scarber and Sr. Sgt DeWitt to explain some of the 40 programs and services DES offers, and how law enforcement can best access and utilize those services. Chief Scarber also took them to the School District office to discuss DES programs for developmentally disabled students. Thanks for coming and sharing this great info!!

We are excited to announce that we are once again recipients of 2 overtime grants funded by the Arizona Governor's Office of Highway Safety totaling $9,000. These grants assist with overtime funds associated with DUI enforcement and selective traffic details (targeted toward high traffic and problem areas). Please help us in our effort to keep our streets safe. Obey traffic laws and plan ahead with a designated driver if the occasion requires. Stay off your phones when driving - whatever it is can wait!! Overtime task forces can occur at any time, but can always be counted on during holidays and major events. Thanks again - stay safe!!! #screensdowneyesup #getaddnotadui

Are you ready for a very merry Christmas story? Thanks to all of your 'shares', this guy found his way home for the holidays!! YAY!! Turns out his name isn't really Tumbleweed (sorry Officer Carlson, it was a GREAT temporary name though)... but rather Vader and he comes from loving owners who were so excited to be reunited with him. We are SO happy that Vader's story had a happy ending. Hallmark would be hard pressed to compete with this one :) Merry Christmas!!!!

EBAY FRAUD ALERT! Stay safe and secure this holiday season, don’t fall for these traps and scams!! Have a great Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Recent WARRANTS entered by the Snowflake Justice Court. If you see yourself you can call the court to fix the warrant!! Thanks

Officer David Young was recognized for his service as a Recruit Training Officer for class 2017-1 of the Northeastern Arizona Law Enforcement Training Academy in Taylor. Six new officers/deputies from area agencies graduated last week at the NPC Snowflake Campus.

Had a GREAT time last night during our Active Threat class at Our Lady of the Snow Catholic Church. Lots of attendee's and great information shared. If you would like to request a similar class or other types of educational courses, don't hesitate to give us a call!!

OK friends - we are hoping for a Christmas reunion. On the evening of December 6th we received a call that a dog had been hit out a ways on Papermill Rd in Taylor. When Officer Carlson arrived on scene the dog was in pretty bad shape and they thought he was going to have to be put down. Well, this little guy had a different plan and somehow jumped into the back of his patrol car (and may or may not have licked his face all over). He doesn't have any tags or a chip, so Officer Carlson took him home and to the vet the next morning. Officer Carlson is unable to keep him, but has gone above and beyond to help this dog and we would LOVE to be able to reunite him with his owner. He is pretty banged up, but is the sweetest dog and we hope to get him home for Christmas. If you recognize this dog, please let us know! Happy Holidays!!

Just a reminder that today is the deadline for applications for Christmas for Children. Santa will be at the Taylor Fire Dept this Saturday the 16th from 11am-2pm and children (under the age of 10) must be present to receive their gift. Happy Holidays!!
