Another way to protect yourself during the Christmas season is to be mindful when tossing out packaging from the gifts you received. Empty boxes are an advertisement for what you have inside your home and can attract thieves. Take a few extra minutes to help protect yourself and your property by breaking down the boxes so they fit in your recycle collection receptacle. Please also remember to secure all your bicycles and larger gifts in your home or garage when not in use. Always keep your home and vehicle doors locked and your garages closed when you are not close by.

Great message from our brothers and sisters at Tucson Police Department.

We hope you had a great time at the electric light parade last night. Santa’s elves - aka: Chief Malinski and Commanders Tercero and Grizzle represented the department in the parade and enjoyed seeing everyone out. πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸš“πŸŽ„

This afternoon Coolidge Police Department responded to the 800 Block of W. Northern in reference to a suspicious subject matching the description from the public advisory sent out the previous day. The officer was able to verify the person's identity and that he was doing legitimate business in Coolidge. This subject's employment was also verified with a third-party company who sells the services of other companies such as DirecTV, Dish, Century Link, etc. Please remember - if a sales person or company representative comes to your door and you are unsure of his or her identity or reason for the visit, always confirm with their company and ask to see identification and credentials. We would like to thank our community for reporting the suspicious activity. This type of involvement helps to solve and prevent criminal activity. When it doubt - always ask questions. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING - SAY SOMETHING!

Pinal County Attorney's Office has a program available to citizens to receive alerts and notifications regarding active scams, criminal activity and public service announcements. Check it out here.

UPDATE: On Thursday, December 7, Coolidge Police Department responded to the 800 Block of W. Northern in reference to a suspicious subject matching the description from the public advisory sent out the previous day. The officer was able to verify the person's identity and that he was doing legitimate business in Coolidge. This subject's employment was also verified with a third-party company who sells the services of other companies such as DirecTV, Dish, Century Link, etc. Please remember - if a sales person or company representative comes to your door and you are unsure of his or her identity or reason for the visit, always confirm with their company and ask to see identification and credentials. We would like to thank our community for reporting the suspicious activity. This type of involvement helps to solve and prevent criminal activity. When it doubt - always ask questions. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING - SAY SOMETHING! ~end of update~ Today at approximately 2:10 PM we were contacted by a concerned citizen in the 1200 Block W. Harding Avenue in the Carter Ranch development regarding a suspicious subject. A clean-cut, white male subject wearing a white shirt knocked on the citizen's door, posing as a DirecTV employee. He attempted several times to gain entry into the home by stating he was there to look at the current equipment to see how he could save the homeowner money. He was not allowed in the home and left the area. No vehicle associated with this subject was observed. The citizen, believing something was unusual, contacted DirecTV who stated they had no one in the area doing business. The citizen then contacted our department. This citizen did the right thing by not granting access to the residence and reporting the incident to Coolidge Police Department. Always be safe whenever in doubt: ask for identification from any service person coming to your home, contact the company when in doubt; report all suspicious activity to local law enforcement immediately.

Shopping season in full effect now and so are criminals looking for easy opportunities. Here are some tips to help avoid becoming a victim of criminal activity during the holidays. Be watchful - and if you see something, say something.

It's Thanksgiving Eve! Did you know Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires? The number of home fires double on Thanksgiving. So, as the stoves begin working over time, don't forget about fire safety!

Recently several of our officers have encountered some traffic violations during funeral escorts which left them with the belief that perhaps many drivers are not informed of the Arizona laws regarding funeral processions. Coolidge Police Department will typically have four patrol units escorting a funeral procession: one in front, one in back and two that drive from traffic light to traffic light to ensure the procession moves safely through traffic. Be safe and watchful for these patrol units and the entire procession as it moves through the city. Please be aware that Arizona Revised Statutes does mandate that drivers yield to funeral processions unless the roadway is divided. Thank you and drive with care!
