Here is the link to the website for the new Jesup Emergency Services Facility. Please take a minute to check it out. Contains information regarding progress and fundraising efforts. Thanks https://www.jesupesfbuilding.net/

Just to clear something up. ATV's and Utility Vehicles are only allowed on approved routes in city limits. We have had a great deal of both on the streets of Jesup lately and have been well off the route. These vehicles will be subject to receiving a fine if found off route. If they are on route they must have valid insurance and a DNR Permit/Sticker/Registration. Here is the approved routes.

I want to give a huge thanks to Tracy Belle and the Wild Thunder Animal Rescue for there assistance on multiple occasions with various animals that have been injured, trapped, or just in the wrong place at the wrong time. You are truly a life saver and we appreciate what you do for us. Thanks, Chief Evans

We have recently been having a problem with eggs getting thrown at vehicles in Jesup. If you see any of this happening or see some suspicious behavior, please give us a call. This may seem like a harmless prank to some, but I would not consider it harmless. This is vandalism and will not be tolerated. This is punishable under the code of criminal mischief. Contrary to what you may believe this will cause damage to vehicles. All it takes is for the owner of the vehicle to say that they want charges pressed and it will be done. Please share this post so the word gets out. Chief Evans

I have been having quite a few people ask about the new state law for fireworks and whether or not they are allowed in Jesup. The City of Jesup has not passed any ordinance that allows the use of fireworks within city limits. The former City Ordinance remains in effect which states that fireworks are not permitted. If you would like to get on the agenda and speak at a City Council Meeting in reference to permitting the use of fireworks in city limits, feel free to do so. I have no intentions of proposing an ordinance change to permit them. Chief Evans

Mark it in your calendar. Support a great cause.

Please be careful of a couple of recent scams going around. The first that I just heard of today is an automated message that comes from the IRS that says a warrant will be issued for your arrest if you don't pay a certain amount and you are to contact a specified number. The previous one was a real person saying you will be charged unless you pay. The other is when you answer the phone, the person says "can you hear me" "hello". Then when you say yes, somehow or another they can access your personal information I guess. Not exactly sure how all this works, but please be careful and at NO POINT GIVE THEM PERSONAL INFORMATION.

The Police Department has started to receive an increased number of calls in the past few weeks in regards to Scammers. Scammers are trying to take advantage of people by lying about their identity. The most recent that we have had are callers claiming to be IRS and asking for information or money, people claiming to be Publishers Clearing House and asking to send money and you will receive a great deal more in return, and also calling to say that your granddaughter or grandson are in jail in another country and need money to get out. Please do not fall for these scams. Do not give any information to them over the phone. Other scams in the past have included credit card/banks calling to confirm account numbers or Microsoft calling to say that you have a virus on your computer and they want access to your computer to fix the virus. If you have any question on whether something is a scam, please do not hesitate to call the police department. If it seems like a scam, it probably is. Chief Evans

The members of the Jesup Police Department will be participating in no shave November. We would like to encourage as many people as possible to join in this effort. We will have an envelope at the Police Department. We are setting the donation amount at $20. All money collected will be used to help with cancer research. Thank you in advance for you participation. Feel free to drop off in City Hall. The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle. Chief Evans

This is a sad day for Law Enforcement in Iowa as two officers have had their lives taken from them in a cowardly act. My heart goes out to the men and women of the Des Moines and Urbandale Police Departments and also to the families and friends of these officers. Obviously this sickens me and it also hits a little too close to home. Please keep all involved in your thoughts. Chief Evans

I would like to say Thank You to Officer Dakota Gaede. Officer Gaede has served the Police Department in a volunteer manner for approximately 3 years.

Thanks again for your service and good luck to you in your future endeavors. Chief Evans

On Monday April 25, 2016, the Jesup Police Department responded to a report of an attempted child abduction in the area between the soccer fields and the Mobile Home Park at 1042 North Street. A tan male with scruffy facial hair and short hair exited a medium sized red sporty type vehicle with a yellow stripe. He offered a young girl candy and approached her in a manner that was threatening to the child. The child immediately got away from the subject and ran from the area. The incident was then reported by the mother and investigated by the police department. The vehicle and/or subject have not been located. Please report any suspicious activity to the police by way of 9-1-1 as soon as it occurs. Also, please educate or refresh your children about the importance of not talking to strangers and running to a trusted adult if feeling threatened. Kids will be outside playing more as the weather improves. The police department will always make an attempt to be as visible as possible. With the addition of our most recent full time officer, the department will essentially have coverage around the clock. Thanks, Chief Evans
