Winfield Police Department News

Thank you to Southwestern College for hosting our department today at Jantz Stadium as part of the pregame festivities. Our officers and their families were part of the fan tunnel welcoming the Moundbuilders to the field. Police Chief Brett Stone with son, Jack, and Investigator/MPO Shawn Love with son, Brandon, were at center field for the coin toss. Both Chief Stone and Investigator Love are graduates of Southwestern College. The #Moundbuilders not only won the coin toss, but also the game, beating the Bethany Swedes 28-14! #GoBuilders

Thank you to Sunflower Lock & Key for the really nice 2018 pocket calendars. They are appreciated!

Happy #FureverFriday! Thank you to Lt. Chad Gordon for helping us feature this week's feline friend, Arianna. Arianna is 2 months old. She loves to be cuddled and petted. She likes to play with balls and other toys, and is the sweetest little thing. She would love to spend time with you and be apart of your family. She spends most of her days napping in a cute little ball. She has been spayed and microchipped. Since Arianna is so LOVING, her friends at the Cowley County Humane Society have made her PET OF THE WEEK! That means she can be yours with only a donation of paper towels, bleach, Dawn dish soap, and canned cat food for all of Arianna's PURRRRRFECT cat friends at the humane society!

Thank you to Wal-Mart Asset Protection Manager Billy Head for the bakery goodies he brought to a meeting at the police department.

Beginning October 30 through November 3, Winfield Police Department will join other Kansas law enforcement agencies in a volunteer seatbelt enforcement action around our schools. In 2016, 44 children ages 0-19 lost their lives due to motor vehicle crashes in Kansas, with half of those children not properly restrained. Winfield officers will be extra vigilant when patrolling around our schools looking for adults and children not properly restrained in a seatbelt or child restraint device. There should be no surprises when it comes to this enforcement effort. Officers will issue citations to anyone who does not obey Kansas law. Please slow down, especially in school zones, eliminate the distractions, and ALWAYS buckle up.

Please "LIKE" & "SHARE" to help us spread the information for a tree cleanup program in Winfield at the end of November and start of December. For more information please follow the link for details. http://www.winfieldks.org/DocumentCenter/View/3838. For further information contact John Adams the City Code Enforcement Inspector at jadams@winfieldks.org or 620-221-5527.

The City of Winfield Compost Site, 320 Broad St., will be open today, Monday, October 16th, from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and will return back to its regular schedule on Tuesday.

Happy #FureverFriday! This week’s featured furry friend is Willie! Here’s what Willie has to say about himself: “I LOVE to lay around in the sun. I HAVE a loving personality. I GET ALONG WITH people but I like to chase cows so a town home might be better for me. I NEED to be house trained if you'd like me to be a house dog.” To meet Willie or one of many other potential pets, visit our friends at the Cowley County Humane Society today!

This would be a great way to learn proactive steps to protect yourself from fraud. One of the frequent calls we receive are scams looking to defraud residents. Any measures you can take to protect yourself from these crimes are worthwhile.

The 2017 Winfield Community Night Out Celebration is in the books and deemed a great success. It took several hours of planning to get the event put together but special thanks needs to go out to the agencies that participated in our event and especially to the community sponsors. Without the sponsorship, we would not have been able to accomplish what we did. A special thanks to the following community sponsors: Save-A-Lot Winfield Kansas, Walmart Winfield - Pike Rd, Dillons, Potter Mower & Chain Saw Service, The Wet Pet, William Newton Hospital, Rubbermaid, Craig Reed - Farm Bureau Financial Services, Wendy's, Sonic Drive-In, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 38, KSOK Radio, and the City-Cowley County Health Department with RISE Cowley. Another well deserved thanks to the Winfield Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, Winfield High School Arts Program for the fantastic face painting and the A Gift From Gunner Foundation for the bounce house usage. We look forward to 2018, to have a bigger and better Community Night Out and look forward to seeing you all there!!

#ScamAlert We've had calls about a couple of scams going around; one we've dealt with several times, and another that's not quite as common. The first scam involves contacting older residents and pretending to be a young relative (grandchild or niece/nephew) in trouble with the law. The caller asks the potential victim to wire them money to pay for bail. The second scam call claims to be from the local police department, soliciting donations. The Winfield Police Department will never call residents asking for donations or monetary support. It is recommended you provide no information to either caller. A police report is non necessary unless you have provided the callers with any personally identifiable or financial account information.

The wait is almost over! Join us at Island Park TONIGHT from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. for free food, fun, and friendly faces from area public safety agencies! We'll also have some cool free handouts, as well as a chance to win one of several prizes. We can't wait to see you there!

You can adopt him for FREE this week at the Cowley County Humane Society if you mention this post. He is full of life and fully vetted.
