SCAM ALERT - Please be aware that someone is sending phishing scam emails out with "Invoice Reminder" in the subject line, and disguising them to look like they are coming from either a Town of Matthews or Matthews Police Department email address. The emails are stating that monies are past due, and to review the invoice you can click on a link below within that email. DO NOT click on the link. One way to know that this is NOT coming from a legitimate source is to look at the name of the sender. If the name of the sender is in bold and is an email address ending in either ".gov" or ".org" and not a person's name such as "John Smith" then that should be an indication that this is not a legitimate government email and should NOT be opened. Matthews Police Department DOES NOT send out invoices by email for any monies owed. If you receive an email from the Town of Matthews for monies owed that you are unaware of, please notify town hall directly at: 704.847.4411 to see if this is a legitimate request. https://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-tips-for-spotting-a-phishing-email/ Town of Matthews, NC Matthews Fire & EMS Town of Matthews Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resource Department

HAVE A SAFE & HAPPY HALLOWEEN We hope you have a wonderful Halloween celebration on Tonight! In order to keep you and your trick-or-treaters safe, please consider the following tips as you put the finishing touches on your celebration: -Dress like a ghoul or goblin, but stay safe. Make sure costumes and candy containers are reflective. To avoid tripping, ensure costumes don't drag on the ground. -Trick-or-treat with trusted neighbors. Use a mapping app for your most efficient & safest route to the candy. -Drive slowly and anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways. -Keep footpaths clear for trick-or-treaters by placing decorations where visitors won't walk. Additionally, ensure electrical cords don't cross footpaths. -Keep candies away from pets. All forms of chocolate-especially baking or dark chocolate-can be dangerous, even lethal, for dogs and cats.

On Monday August 3, 1987 a young new Officer named Rob Hunter started his first day with the Matthews Police Department to do what he was called to do. Surely never dreaming just how far he would take this new found career. After 30 years of dedicated service to this profession and the Matthews community, tomorrow officially starts Chief Hunter's retirement. We wish him the best in all of his future endeavors, along with being able to spend some much deserved time with his family. Chief, Thank You for everything that you have done for us, our families, and our careers. - MPD Staff
