PHONE SCAM The Fort Scott Police Department received a phone call from the parent of a FSCC student. The parent wanted information about the arrest of their son and further instructions on how to send bail money ($5,000.00) through Wal-Mart. The parent advised that her husband spoke to their son and his attorney, but did not think the subject sounded like their son. After a computer search was done, showing no arrest had been made. Law enforcement contacted the student directly on his cellphone. The student had not been arrested and was unaware of the call. The caller had the student's, parent's and grandparent's information. At this time it is unknown how the caller obtained the information.

Bourbon County Emergency Personnel just concluded a conference call with the National Weather Service in Springfield regarding the winter storm that will be affecting the area from late tonight through the weekend. The consensus is that we are in the area that will see the most significant ice accumulation in the area along with gusting winds during this event. This is a particularly dangerous situation that could develop as soon as overnight tonight. Freezing rain of greater than 3/4" is possible with winds that could easily bring down power lines and trees. Add to that the inability of personnel to respond to outages could mean extended loss of power to homes and businesses. Please take the necessary steps to insure the safety of your family and property, by getting any errands ran today and stock up on needed items such as food, water, pet food and fuel if you have a generator. We are asking residents to stay off the roads and stay home if at all possible if this scenario materializes. Since this situation is an ice event even a 1/8" will make roads impossible to safely drive on, and this includes emergency vehicles, they have the same problems as everyone else in these conditions. If you are out and get into problems and have an accident you are not only putting your own life at risk but those of the emergency responders as well. Again please make sure you are prepared for this storm and please stay safe by staying off the icy roads and stay home as it could be more than your life that you save by doing so. We want all of our residents to remain safe as well as the men and women who protect this county and cities everyday. Thank you for taking the time to read this and please share it with all of your local friends and families. If you know people who don't use Facebook please call them and let them know.

To All Citizens of Bourbon County Our 911 Dispatch center is fully functioning and back to normal. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay safe and have a good night!

In recent days, it has come to our attention there have been several Facebook messages and rumors going around. They contain different stories, but are all about people dressed as clowns causing problems and committing crimes in our area. We, along with other Law Enforcement Agencies, believe this is part of a national trend of such incidents. Despite some of the extreme Facebook warnings on these incidents, we know of no actual threat or concern. As always, we encourage residents to be aware of their surroundings and report suspicious behavior.

This morning, Abigail Eastwood, daughter of Det. Jason Eastwood, provided the Fort Scott Police Department with a plastic tote containing numerous stuffed animals. Abigail had previously conducted a fundraiser to raise money for the purchase of the stuffed animals. The stuffed animals were provided to the Police Department to be given to children who have contact with law enforcement. Thank you Abigail for your thoughtfulness! Chief Travis Shelton is observed in the photograph with Abigail and Jason Eastwood accepting the donation.

In conjunction with LaForge & Budd and the 18th to 23rd Highway 69 project, the south National portion from 18th Street to 69 Highway will be closed tomorrow, September 22nd, 2016. It is expected to reopen by the end of the day. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience during this time.
