Bardstown Police Department News

We have been receiving several complaints from residents who received calls this week from someone claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service, telling taxpayers they owe thousands in back taxes. IRS officials say the IRS typically reaches out to taxpayers first by mail and never asks for payment by debit card, credit card or wire transfer. We are warning residents to make themselves aware and anyone who has gotten a call like this should Contact Treasury Inspector General Tax administration to report it. That can be done by using their "IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting" web page or by calling 800-366-4484.

Join us this afternoon for cupcakes and conversation with your local officers. Hope to see you there!

Good work done by Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force!

As the festivities for the New Year’s Eve quickly approach, we would like to encourage everyone to be responsible and preplan their evening. As of December 28th, 2017, Kentucky’s roadways have seen 133 alcohol traffic related deaths and 295 deaths contributed to people not wearing their seatbelts. That is far too many lost loved ones! Please use a sober designated driver, family member or any of the rideshare programs like Uber, Lyft or Taxi services. The cost to drive intoxicated will affect you, your family, your bank account, and possibly your freedom and health. Intoxication and driving don’t mix!

We are needing help identifying unknown subjects involved in a theft from Goodwill donation storage. The vehicle involved does have two silver speakers in the rear window and black racing stripes along the front of the car and top of the roof.
