In regards to the recent Facebook and Snapchat messages received last night, that make reference to an alleged “SHS” school shooting, the Sutherlin Police Department has confirmed that it is not an actual threat aimed at our schools. Messages identical to this one have been found to have originated out of Ohio State, and were proven to be a hoax. The Sutherlin Police Department, along with cooperation of the Sutherlin School District, has taken measures to assure the public that students are safe to return to school. Continued police presence will be seen on all school campuses in the Sutherlin and Oakland School Districts. If there are any questions please contact School Resource Officer Jake McGarvey.

Thank you so much to the Sutherlin Girl Scouts, Troop 12674, who brought in the wonderful Valentine's Day cards for the Department. Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.

An IRS phone scam is making its way around our community targeting taxpayers. The IRS has the following information to help prevent becoming a victim to a tax scam. The IRS DOES NOT initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages, or social media to request personal or financial information. If the IRS does need to contact a taxpayer it will most likely be through regular mail delivered by the United States Postal Service. There are special circumstances in which the IRS will call or come to a home or a business, e.g. taxpayer has an overdue tax bill or to secure a delinquent tax return etc., even in those special circumstances the taxpayer will generally first receive several “notices” from the IRS in the mail. The IRS DOES NOT call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card, or wire transfer. Demand that you pay taxes without the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe, you should also be advised of your rights as a taxpayer. Threaten to bring in the local police, immigration officers, or other law-enforcement to have you arrested for not paying. They IRS also cannot revoke your driver’s license, business licenses, or immigration status. Threats like these are common tactics scam artists use to trick victims into buying into their schemes. Who to Contact: • Contact the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration to report a phone scam. Use their “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting” web page. You can also call 800-366-4484. • Report phone scams to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the “FTC Complaint Assistant” on FTC.gov. Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" in the notes. • Report an unsolicited email claiming to be from the IRS, or an IRS-related component like the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System, to the IRS at phishing@irs.gov.
