Halloween Safety Tips from the Winnemucca Police Department: πŸŽƒ Walk Safely πŸŽƒ Cross the Street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. πŸŽƒ Always walk on the sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk in direct routes with the fewest street crossing. πŸŽƒ Keep Costumes Creative and Safe πŸŽƒ Be Seen! πŸŽƒ Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape and sticker and, if possible, chose light colors. πŸŽƒ Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers πŸŽƒ Trick or Treat with an Adult πŸŽƒ Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups. πŸŽƒ Accept treats at the door and never go into a stranger’s house. πŸŽƒ Have an adult inspect treats before eating; don’t eat candy if the package is already opened. πŸŽƒ Drive Extra Safely on Halloween πŸŽƒ Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances. πŸŽƒ Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. so be especially alert to kids during those hours.

The Winnemucca Police Department would like to give a shout out to Walmart store manager Kim and Asset Protection Manager Debbie, for helping the WPD with the upcoming Halloween festivities.

It is with sincere regret to inform you of the death of former Police Chief Don Wright who lost his fight with cancer Friday night, October 6, 2017, Chief Wright served as Chief of Police for WPD from 1994 to 2000 and had been employed with the department for serval years prior to that time. At the request of his family, there will be no service, but staying with Don’s wishes, they asked that everyone have a β€œdrink” in his memory. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. In his honor, Winnemucca Officers will be wearing mourning bands on their badges for the remainder of the week.

***Warning About Counterfeit Money Being Passed*** Over recent weeks, businesses in Winnemucca have reported receiving counterfeit $100 dollar bills. Many of the bills passed the detection marker test, but they do not have additional security features of legitimate U.S. currency. As such, business owners and cashiers are urged to pay special attention to any $100 bills given as payment, especially ones containing the serial number H136610648A. Also, look for security features that are present on printed U.S. currency which include color shifting ink, raised and detailed printing, watermarks, and security thread and ribbons. If you are given what you believe to be a bogus bill, it is requested that you don’t give the bill back to the customer. Rather, make note of the subjects and vehicles involved (including the license plate), any notify law enforcement.

Phone call scams are too common. But they’re easier to spot than you might think. If someone calls you and claims to be from the IRS, your bank, Microsoft, or any other company or government agency, it’s probably a scam. Companies and government agencies will almost never call you out of nowhere. Here is a Public Service Announcement from Treasury Department in regards to IRS phone scams.

Here is your chance to dress up, have a great time AND help support the WDVS Winnemucca!!! We hope to see you there!

It took a community effort and a lot of dedicated work by ALL the local agencies! Thank you for all the support from everyone and the Sacramento Police Department!!
