****WARNING....TAX SCAMMERS**** Don’t be fooled by scammers pretending to be the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The IRS will NOT call you if you owe taxes without first sending you a notice in the mail. Scammers however WILL call you and alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS or another official agency is calling from Washington, D.C. Scammers may also use a scheme called "phishing" to lure you into telling them your personal information such as your social security number, bank information, credit card accounts, and more. Scammers will "phish” for your information by asking you to verify specific details. Scammers frequently threaten folks with arrest if they do not pay right away and they’ll instruct you to purchase green dot cards to make payments. You should report all unsolicited emails claiming to be from the IRS or an IRS-related function to phishing@irs.gov. irs.gov/taxessecuritytogether If you’re not sure, before doing anything, please call dispatch at (727) 582-6177 and ask to see or to speak with a Gulfport Officer. We’re happy to help.

Don’t bet your luck on it: drunk driving is deadly driving. This St. Paddy’s Day, remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over St. Patrick’s Day is one of America’s most widely celebrated holidays, for the Irish and non-Irish alike. It’s a great excuse to gather with friends and family and make merry over bangers n’ mash and a pint of green beer. Sadly, the night often ends with drunk drivers on the road, which poses a threat to other drivers, vehicle passengers, and pedestrians. In 2016 alone, 60 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes during the St. Paddy’s Day holiday period (6 p.m. March 16 to 5:59 a.m. March 18). Not only is this behavior deadly, it’s illegal. For that reason, law enforcement will be out in full force to make sure that if you are behind the wheel, you are sober. This year, if you’ll be drinking alcohol, remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

At this week’s Gulfport’s Citizen’s Police Academy, Community Resource Officer, Zack Mills meets the class at the firing range and training facility. One hour was concentrated on the safety and handling of a gun. Commander Stone, Sergeant Parks, Officer Ross and Officer Carter are all certified to train in this capacity. The blue gun is plastic and part of the training to hold the gun correctly. Every person had to complete this task before going out on the range as well as follow the rules of gun safety. Many in the class had never shot a gun before and each person had an instructor with them at all times.
