Welcome back sir!!!

A new scam is targeting seniors, preying on fears that they could lose Social Security benefits. Seniors are scared into donating to this fake cause and providing their personal information, the Better Business Bureau warned Friday. Seniors across the country are receiving letters in the mail asking for a donation of $16.45 to fund the work of a group called the National Council for Survivors. The letters claim Congress is attempting to abolish Social Security, and this group is working to save the benefits. They are allegedly mailing referendum ballots to every senior citizen in the country, allowing them to vote to keep the government program. The BBB is warning people not to donate to any group making such claims. If you send money, you will be out $16.45. Victims who fill out the form to make a credit card donation, open themselves up to ID theft and additional fraudulent charges. As usual, the scam varies slightly in different reports. The name of the advocacy group often changes and so does the exact language used. This has been reported to Rockwood Police Department as well.

The members of the Rockwood Police Department are attending in service being taught by Capt Tim Hawn of the Roane County Sheriff's Office. Captain Hawn is teaching about drugs, narcotics, and dealing with people that use and transport drugs. The Rockwood Police Department sends their gratitude to Sheriff Jack Stockton for allowing this to happen. Next week officers from surrounding agencies such as Harriman Police Department and Roane County Sheriff's Office will be attending the same class in Rockwood to help further the officers education on drugs and narcotics. #teamwork #roanecountyworkingtogether
