Newton Police Department News

The forecast says 103 F for tomorrow's high temperature! If you don't have the luxury of staying inside with the air conditioner, please be aware of heat related illness symptoms before hand. Save this graphic to your photos for quick reference if you or someone you are with begins showing symptoms. Drink plenty of water and keep cool!

Every once in a while we see something new. Typically we don't post about every scam report we receive because they occur daily and we fear people would stop paying attention. However, this is a new one in this area so we thought we would share. A new scam is for people to steal an electronic advertisement of a house or apartment for rent, then post the images pretending to be the property owner. When contacted they claim to be out of town on vacation, but if a deposit is wired they will either hold the property, or mail the keys, etc. We think Newton has a lot to offer and we wan't people to join our community, but don't be so eager that you might wind up being victimized.

It is a beautiful 83 degrees today with some much needed relief from the upper 90 degree temps we've been experiencing. Unfortunately someone thought it was cool enough to take their dog for a ride and leave it in a car with the windows generously cracked. By the time we were called and got on scene the air temperature in the car measured 122 Degrees! Thankfully our Animal Control Officer rescued the dog and made sure it was taken care of. If you love your dogs, please leave them at home. Just think about how excited they will be to see you when you get back!

The members of the Newton Police Department take pause today to remember and honor all of those who answered the call to serve our great nation, and paid for our safety and freedom with their life.

Hide it. Lock it. Keep it. Each year as the temperature rises, so do the number of vehicle burglaries. These occur both day and night. We need your help to stop them! Here are some helpful tips to keep from being a victim. DO - Always lock your car! - Close all windows. - Remove visible items from your vehicle. - Lock items in the trunk. - Park in well-lit areas. DON'T - Leave items in plain view. - Leave your remote garage door opener in the vehicle (prevent the criminal access to your home) - Leave the engine running when you are away from the vehicle. - Keep original ownership papers in your vehicle. Watch the attached video from Glendale California showing just how quickly you can become a victim.

Thank you to our friends at Newton Medical Center! We appreciate your partnership and service to our community.

A little throwback from our friends at Harvey County Historical Museum and a good reminder to watch out for student drivers as summer begins.

It's getting warmer and we are already receiving numerous calls about animals being left in parked vehicles. We know you love your pets, but you may not be aware they can suffer severe brain and organ damage in only a few minutes while sitting in a hot car. If you love your pets, leave them at home. Let's face it, there is nothing better than returning home to an excited pet that is happy to see you.

10 days until our next class and there are still open spots. These two hour sessions will teach you skills which could save your life if you ever experience of an active threat event.

The weather is going to be nice this weekend. If you are looking for an outdoor activity, which could help bring closure to a high-profile missing child case, there will be organized searches for Lucas Hernandez taking place in Wichita on Saturday and Sunday.

Some touching words from Cpl. Hawpe as he and his family say goodbye to K-9 Carla today. K-9 Carla served our community as Cpl. Hawpe's loyal partner for 11 years, and has lived with him since her retirement. Please stop by their page and share your condolences. We know it will mean a lot to Cpl. Hawpe.

Paris, 50, was arrested Thursday night in Seiling, Oklahoma, in the northwest part of the state.

He had been on federal probation in Oklahoma for previous bank robberies.

The public often sees how Police Officer's and Fire / EMS Personnel respond to dangerous situations every day.

Our Emergency Dispatchers are true professionals and are the very first, first-responders to most of our worst calls. Please take a moment to write a note below thanking them for the work they do. Our jobs would be impossible without them!

A few weeks ago our School Resource Officers took part in a project to bring safety belt awareness to students and parents dropping kids off at school. Every year hundreds of Kansans die in traffic accidents which could be prevented with the use of safety belts. This year 159 agencies across the state participated and targeting school zones 30 minutes before and after school hours and the results show students were found to be wearing their safety belts 3 times as often as their parents. We have to work together to model good safety habits for our children. It should be noted, three impaired drivers were also taken off the roadway during this project in the southeast Kansas. Thanks for your continued support.

Sharing this to help our neighbors to the south. If you have any information which might help in the search for Lucas Hernandez, please contact the Wichita Police Department, or Wichita Crime Stoppers 316-267-2111.
