The following letter was sent out to parents of Hamilton High School students and on the Hamilton High School's Facebook Page.

Please be aware of another phone scam. We've received calls that individuals are calling to "sell" people an additional car warranty. If the homeowner doesn't answer the phone and calls the number left on the caller I.D., it returns to the Ravalli Republic. Obviously the Ravalli Republic doesn't sell car warranties. If you are going to buy a car warranty, please be cautious and do your own research. As always, if you have any questions or doubts, feel free to call.

In the last couple of months we've had multiple thefts that have occurred in residences under construction. The individuals have stolen sections of electrical wiring, which results in obviously lost material, but also the expense of extra labor. If anyone has any information about this please call Detective Koppes at the Hamilton Police Department at (406) 363-2100. Also, if you see any suspicious activity in or around a house under construction, please call dispatch at (406)363-3033. Thanks for helping keep our community safe.

Please join us in congratulating Officer Norman Williams. Officer Williams was honored by the local Masonic Lodge and received the Outstanding Performance Medal. Officer Williams has been with the Hamilton Police Department for nearly six years. In that time he's displayed an amazing work ethic and has handled many stressful and highly emotional incidents with extreme professionalism. Officer Williams is an invaluable asset to the department and our community and we thank him for his service.

Road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children in the United States. With winter quickly approaching be sure your child's safety seat is properly installed. A correctly used child safety seat can reduce the risk of death by as much as 71%. If you’re unsure if your child's safety seat is properly installed, we’re here to help. Our very own Officer Hayward is now a certified passenger safety seat technician. Call the police department, ask to speak with Officer Hayward, and schedule an appointment to have your child's safety seat checked today!

We are looking for an individual that left his trash in someone's yard. Please watch this video and if you can identify him please call Officer Williams at the police department at 363-2100. Thanks for your help.

Please come support a good cause. We will be taking orders, bussing tables and pretty much getting in the way of the real workers at The Filling Station Grille this Friday (10-20-17). Please tip well as all of the proceeds will go towards the Marcus Daly Hospital Sprinkle Pink program which helps local people with obtaining mammograms and other cancer related care. Officers will be there working from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Please share and invite some friends. See you there.

We had a found tent and other outdoor gear turned in to the Police Department yesterday. It was located near Marcus and Kurtz. If you feel this is yours please call and provide a description in order to get it returned.

We enjoyed cooking up some burgers and dogs again for the incoming freshman class. Good luck to everyone starting school soon and we hope you had a great Summer.

**UPDATE** - Thanks to another donation we are now up to $3,035.00 for the scholarship fund for this year. Thank you again to everyone for your help and donations. This will really help impact some young lives. **ORIGINAL POST ** - Well we had another successful tournament. There were eight teams and we raised $2,035.00 for the scholarship fund. We would like to thank Fallen Tree Construction, The General Store, Naps, the City of Hamilton, Canyon View Church, Super One Foods and Team Salvo Softball for getting teams together. We would also like to thank Duggan Construction, B&B Storage, the Wade Family, Hamilton Softball Association, Osburn Irrigation, Super One Foods, Safeway, Hamilton Marketplace, Albertson's, Hamilton Packing Co, Mike Gray, Marc Snavely, Jason Strong, Buckie Brawley, Lincoln Schrock and everyone else who helped or donated. We couldn't have done it without you. We would like to give a special shout out to Michael Duggan. Michael received the scholarship last year and obviously didn't take it for granted. Without being asked, he came out all day to help by setting up the food and flipping burgers. Thanks Michael, we're honored to help you this upcoming school year.

Please come and join us at the softball fields across the street from the Fairgrounds this Saturday (07-15-17). We're having our 2nd annual scholarship softball tournament. We're full with teams, but anyone can come down and enjoy some lunch. We'll be cooking up some burgers and dogs and we'll also have ice cold soda and water. Come on by to watch some softball and help contribute to a good cause.

Please join us in congratulating Michael Duggan. Michael was the recipient of the Hamilton Police Association High School scholarship. He received $1,500 and will be putting it to good use this upcoming year at Flathead Valley Community College. Michael is a very hard worker and we're very happy to help him out. This money was primarily raised at the HPA softball tournament that was held last year. We're holding another one on July 15th and 16th, 2017. Please help us to keep doing this for students in our community. If you would like to form a team, or simply make a donation, please call Sgt. Bob Liercke at 363-2100. Also, if you want to just stop by and support the cause by having a lunch (all money will be given to the scholarship fund), come by the Hamilton softball fields on the 15th and 16th. Michael will be there flipping burgers, so you can congratulate him there as well. Congratulations again to Michael. Good luck.

Our condolences go out to the Broadwater County Sheriff's Office and the deputy's family.

This is a friendly reminder that cell phone use while driving within the city limits of Hamilton is prohibited. There has been an increasing number of violations of this city ordinance and we do enforce this law. Please drive safe and remember that your phone call or text is not worth being involved in an accident.

On 3/20/2017 the Hamilton Police Department received 4 reports of a SCAM in which the suspect, identifying himself as Deputy Walker, advises the potential victim that there is a warrant for their arrest. "Deputy Walker" demands the victim provide him with some sort of payment to clear up the warrant issue. This is a scam. Neither the Hamilton Police Department nor the Ravalli County Sheriff's Office employ a "Deputy Walker". We remind you to be cautious for any unsolicited phone calls and if there are questions to call the police department or the sheriff's office to inquire about the validity of suspicious calls.
