Rolling Meadows Police Department’s K9 Scar has received body armor Rolling Meadows Police Department’s K9 Scar has received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. and was sponsored by an Anonymous Sponsor. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c(3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 2,800 protective vests in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a cost of over 2.4 million dollars. The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate. The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $950.00. Each vest has a value between $1,744 – $2,283, and a five-year warranty and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There is an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States. For more information or to learn about volunteer opportunities, please call 508-824-6978. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts tax-deductible donations of any denomination at www.vik9s.org or mailed to P.O. Box 9 East Taunton, MA 02718. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. was kind enough to award Scar with a vest through a grant that we received. We can not thank them enough along with U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. C. Wheaton which is inscribed on Scar's vest. Thank you for helping us keep Scar safe. We appreciate it immensely!

***Phone Scam Alert*** Recently in the news there have been several reports of a phone scam where the caller pretends to be a member of the Cook County Sheriff's Office. The caller makes notification that there is an allegation against the victim and that payment is required. A spoofing application is used to make it appear on caller ID that the phone call is coming from a Cook County Sheriff’s Office number. The Sheriff’s Office does not make such notifications by phone nor does the office ask for payment over the phone. See the attached article for additional information. https://www.cookcountysheriff.org/sheriff-warns-phone-scam-2/

Today, Chicago Police Department lost one of their officers to a senseless act of violence. We are very sorry for their loss and extend our deepest condolences to the men and women of the Chicago Police Department and Commander Bauer's family. RIP Sir, Your fellow brothers and sisters have the watch now.

With the tax season upon us please remember: The IRS does not: Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Generally, the IRS will first mail a bill to any taxpayer who owes taxes. Demand that you pay taxes without the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe. You should also be advised of your rights as a taxpayer. Threaten to bring in local police, immigration officers or other law-enforcement to have you arrested for not paying. The IRS also cannot revoke your driver’s license, business licenses, or immigration status. Threats like these are common tactics scam artists use to trick victims into buying into their schemes. https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0
