This Saturday Oct 28th is the DEA National Take Back Initiative. You can bring in any unused prescription medications and drop them off at the Police Department for proper disposal. We will have someone available to collect the medications from 10-2. PLEASE DO NOT BRING NEEDLES OR LIQUIDS as we are not equipped to handle those at this time. Here is what the DEA had to say about the last Take Back day in April: Last weekend the DEA and over 4,200 of its state, local, and tribal law enforcement partners collected 893,498 pounds of unwanted medicines—about 447 tons—at almost 5,400 sites spread through all 50 states, beating its previous high of 390 tons in the spring of 2014 by 57 tons, or more than 114,000 pounds. The top five states with the largest collections, in order, were Texas (almost 40 tons); California (32 tons); Wisconsin (31 tons); Illinois (24 tons); and Massachusetts (24 tons). See all the state totals here.

As most of you have probably heard, the threat to our children and the schools was from a cyber hacker. Law Enforcement officials have determined that the physical threat to our children does not exist. The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office has released copies of the ransom letter that was received by the Columbia Falls School District. This group is located outside of the U.S. and they are the subjects of other investigations elsewhere in our country. Below is a paragraph from the ransom letter describing who these hackers are: “We are sure that by now you are wondering who this internet stranger is. We are thedarkoverlord and it’s a pleasure to finally be speaking directly with you, Columbia Falls, under our real identity. (You may remember us at that pesky telephone number of XXXXXXXXXX). If you receive a message from us, it means you have been completely and thoroughly attacked and breached by an organised entity of creatures who are motivated only by their love for internet money and are responsible for some of the most serious breaches and security violation incidents in the last year. We are savage creatures who do not discriminate. We prefer to prey upon the likes of institutions such as your own, but not because we have anything against children, but rather for much more interesting reasons which you will soon come to understand.” We will have officers in the Whitefish schools today as children return to their classes. The safety of our children has and will continue to be the highest priority while we work to bring those responsible to justice. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please call the Whitefish Police Department at 863-2421.

*PRESS RELEASE*PRESS RELEASE*PRESS RELEASE* The Whitefish Police Department in conjunction with the FBI, Columbia Falls Police Department, Kalispell Police Department, and the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office have been working diligently around the clock in the investigation of electronic threats made against our local schools. The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office negotiation team has been in communication with the suspect in this case, however, the suspect has taken measures to conceal his electronic identity and location. We will continue to work around the clock and investigate every lead or person of interest. We want to thank the Whitefish Community for their support and understanding during this time. We know it is difficult for everyone. The safety of our children and community remain the highest priority. If you see something suspicious, contact the Whitefish Police Department at 863-2420 or 9-1-1 if it’s an emergency. This investigation is ongoing and more information will be released as it becomes available. Bill Dial Chief of Police
