MEDICARE FRAUD ALERT....Medicare will be issuing new Medicare cards without one's social security number. Scammers are calling individuals claiming they are from Medicare and asking to confirm the individual's birth date and social security number and using this information to commit other fraud. Medicare WILL NOT BE CALLING ANYONE ASKING FOR THIS INFORMATION. If someone calls you asking for this just hang up.

Heroes in action. Wow.

National 911 Education Month In 2008, the United States Congress recognized April as National 911 Education Month. 911 Education Month calls upon public safety officials, schools, government officials and industry leaders to engage in an national effort to educate children, seniors and the general public about the importance and appropriate use of 911. During the month of April, these organizations conduct special outreach to build on existing state and local 911 education efforts in an attempt to raise the issue of 911 education to a national level. This month the Mentor Police Department sponsors our 911 for Kids program with Red E. Fox in all the elementary schools. Red E. Fox is an interactive program sharing information about the purpose and use of the 911 system with second graders. Additionally, the Mentor Police Department and the Mentor Communications Center are always available to answer 911 related questions from the community, 440-975-5789 Some general guidelines for 9-1-1 are: • 9-1-1 is for police, fire and medical emergencies only. • If you call 9-1-1, don’t hang up. • Stay calm and speak clearly • Know the location where help is needed. Providing an accurate address is critically important, especially when making a 9-1-1 call from a wireless phone. • Stay on the line with the 9-1-1 dispatcher and answer all questions. This does not delay help being sent. The more information they have, the better equipped they are to help you. • It is a crime to call 9-1-1 for jokes or prank calls

Congratulations to our employees of the year - Patrolman James (Jimmy) Collier and Administrative Assistant Karen Brooks! Jimmy is one of the driving forces behind the success of our retail theft detail and has been an integral part of our department during his time with the detective bureau. As a "seasoned" investigator, Jimmy was a role model to our younger detectives. Karen has gone out of her way to help improve the interior of our department. She pulled a #fixerupper on our patrolman's lounge and quietly does her part to build morale around the police department. Karen is always ready to drop what she is doing to help someone else with a task. Jimmy and Karen are great examples of those who go above and beyond!

We got this private message today via Facebook - We wish this man well and are glad to hear the feedback. “I just want to say thank you MPD I was resentful for being arrested years ago for drugs, but that arrest saved my life. Every single person I used with in the past is dead and I'd be dead if I didn't get caught. Even after becoming a criminal, yall have helped me out after the fact. You have a tough job and see people in the community typically at their worst. So thanks for arresting me 5 years ago (about), thanks for what you do, and to judge trebets thank you, I still remember what you said my day in court and were so understanding and fair. Be safe and keep it up”
