Fort Scott Police Department News

April 6, 2018 IMPORTANT REMINDER—DOG LICENSE The City of Fort Scott requires that anyone who owns, keeps, possesses, or has control of a dog six months of age or older must have his or her pet licensed and vaccinated against rabies every year, no matter when acquired during the year. All dog license registrations will expire on May 31 each and every year. You can license or renew your dog license for June 1, 2018 through May 31, 2019 at the water utility office in City Hall, 123 South Main Street during the month of May via cash, check, debit or credit card. Current office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Your dogs’ rabies vaccination must be up to date before your license can be issued. You will need the following paperwork: • A copy of the current rabies vaccination certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian must be submitted. An invoice or statement of services is not sufficient as proof of rabies vaccination. Check your certificate for correct owner name, address, and pet information. • A spay/neuter certificate if it is not reflected on the rabies certificate. Fees for dog registration: • $3.00 for each neutered male dog or spayed female dog • $5.00 for each unneutered male dog or unspayed female dog A dog license identifies and protects your pet in case it becomes lost. Even indoor pets can get out and become lost. You are required to renew your license yearly and to keep your license updated when you move and/or your pet is given away, lost, stolen or is deceased. A dog license is not only a requirement but it provides the following benefits: • A license tells everyone that your pet is not a homeless stray. • When licensed, found pets can be quickly reunited with their owner. • Your license is proof that your pet has been vaccinated against rabies. Be sure to have the license tag on your pet’s collar at all times to help enable a quick return should they be found. Thank you.

There was a malfunction with one of the tornado sirens today. We are sorry for the inconvenience. That being said we will be doing our regular testing today at 1:00pm. to make sure that everything is working correctly.

We are pleased to announce that our Dispatch has went live with NG911 and now has the capability of receiving text-to-911. Text-to-911 is the ability to send SMS text messages to your local 911 call center during an emergency. Text-to-911 should ONLY be used in an emergency and in circumstances when you cannot safely call 911. Do’s and Don’ts Enter the number “911” in the “To” field (do not enter with dashes). Provide your address or location and type of help you need-police, fire, or medical. Push the send button. Be prepared to answer questions and follow instruction from the 911 call taker Text in simple words; do not use abbreviations, slang or emoji’s. Keep text message brief and concise. Once you have initiated a text- to-911 conversation, do not delete the mes- sage or turn off your phone until the dispatcher tells you it is ok. Call centers can only receive and reply to text 911 calls and cannot initiate a text message conversation without the caller texting 911 first. Use English if possible. Translation services are not available for text messages to 911. Do NOT text and drive! 911 text messages can take longer to receive, may be delivered out of order, or may not be received at all. Text- to-911 is not available if you are in a “roaming” situation. A text or data plan is required to place a text message to 911. Text-to-911 Service is available for members of the deaf, deafened, hard of hearing, speech impaired, & nonverbal aphonic communities. We are excited about this next step in serving our community!!

The City of Fort Scott will be participating in the State Wide Tornado Drill at 10:00 am today.

Several of the City of Fort Scott’s telephone lines are not working due to a service outage with AT&T. This includes the main line 223-0550. They are working to resolve this issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Congratulations Officer LaFalce!

Beginning 08/07/2017 a member of the department will be going door to door in our city. The officer will check to make sure that all dogs in the city have been registered. If a dog(s) are found not to be registered, the officer will leave a notice at the residence. The notice will advised the owner to register the animal within thirty days, or a citation will be issued. Anyone having questions can contact Captain West, or ACO Daly at the Fort Scott Police Department. The ordinance 6.08.080 is now attached which relates to the licensing of dogs. It has been an ordinance since 1924. I have also attached the kennel zoning regulation which states that three dogs are the maximum a person can have.
