Jeffersontown Police Department News

Good morning, today is Halloween, the one day a year we allow our children to take candy from strangers. The city of Jeffersontown does not set a time when residents can trick or treat. Use common sense, patience and above all else, be polite. Some helpful hints: Children should trick-or-treat during daylight hours. Children should never be allowed to go out alone on Halloween. Children should never eat any treats until they have been examined. All fruit should be cut and and closely examined before eating. Advise children that they should never enter strangers' homes. Never invite children into your home. Children should never accept rides from strangers. Instruct children not to stray from their group. A responsible adult should escort children while trick-or-treating. Adult escorts should carry flashlights. Keep pets inside your home or another safe place on Halloween night. Children should walk, not run, during their trick-or-treat activities. Children should wear proper fitting, comfortable costumes and shoes. REALISTIC REPLICA FIREARMS SHOULD NEVER BE USED. Masks should not be worn if they impair vision. Wigs should be fireproof and should not restrict vision. Children should always use sidewalks, not the street, for walking. Children should look in all directions before crossing the street. Motorists should drive slowly, yield to young pedestrians and watch out for Trick-or-Treaters darting into the street. Our officers will be out patrolling all areas of Jeffersontown in both marked and unmarked units. If you see something, say something!! Call us at 267-0503 Have a safe and Happy Halloween

More information related to scams and an arrest made by the Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney - Jefferson County, KY Phone numbers for reporting scams in Kentucky are listed at the bottom of the webpage.

We have received a significant increase in calls in reference to an ongoing scam. The scam begins with a male or female calling identifying themselves as either local law enforcement or the IRS. They then tell the person on the phone that they have an outstanding debt, warrant for their arrest or financial obligation that hasn't been fulfilled. Often times the person will sound convincing until challenged. When challenged the caller will get upset and lose their composer and start cussing or threatening the "victim". Please know, no Law Enforcement agency nor Federal entity will ever call you to advise you have a warrant for your arrest, that you owe them money, that you have won money or that someone will be coming to arrest you. Please do not provide any identifying information about yourself or anyone else in your household to anyone that calls you unsolicited nor offer any financial information when contacted the same way. Lastly, no organization, no matter what the fee, fine, award, or any other monetary reward, will ask you to pay in Money Orders, Walmart Gift Cards, Apple Gift Cards or any other suspicious payment methods. Help yourself from being a victim!!! If it sounds like a hoax or a scam and you're not sure, call us and we will help you figure it out.
