If you did not get the chance to go this year, keep an eye out for it next year! There are plenty of great booths to check out, as well as a live science show.

The Superior Police Department has received numerous calls in reference to a facebook post by a user ‘Ray Andres’. The post references potential school violence. These posts were also disseminated via other social media platforms. While we take these threats very seriously, we do not know at this time the origination of the post. There are news articles and social media post from all over the country today about this post. We do not believe this to be a credible threat to our school system. School resource officers and school officials are aware of the incident. We will take necessary measures to ensure the safety of our school children and staff.

It's tax time again. And, time for a reminder that the IRS and state departments of revenue do not call you threatening to put out a warrant or send the police to arrest you. If the government tax agencies need to contact you, they'll send a very official letter with information that you should be able to verify is indeed your own, like the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number. This information has also been on the national news shows. If you receive a phone call similar to what is explained above, don't bother to engage the caller in any discussion, just hang up. It isn't worth your time. It's also unfortunate that we don't have the resources to follow up on scam calls like this. Be satisfied that you recognized the call as a scam and didn't let them fool you. Lastly, never give your Social Security number, bank account numbers or any other identifying information to someone who calls you. If you have an account with a bank or company, they already have that information. Along this same line of scam, if you get a call from someone claiming to be a relative in need of help, bail money or anything else that can be solved by wiring them money, STOP. Check with a family member you trust to find out if that call is real before you do anything else. In cases like this, a little skepticism will go a long way.

Officer Brad Jago and Officer Tyler Rude completed the Field Training Officer Course that was held this week at the LaCrosse Police Department. They'll join other Field Training Officers in training our department's newest police officers. Congratulations FTO Jago and FTO Rude!
