Watch Out for Tax Scams... As we near the end of tax season, we would like to remind our citizens to watch out for tax scams (we have received multiple reports of such scams over the last few days and last couple months). The below listed IRS webpage explains what you should do if you receive a communication (phone call, mailing, fax, email, text) from the IRS. https://www.irs.gov/privacy-disclosure/report-phishing REMEMBER: THE IRS WILL NEVER: + Call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill. + Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe. + Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card. + Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. + Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying. REMEMBER: Never give out sensitive personal identifying information (i.e., social security number, date of birth, pin numbers, financial information) to someone claiming to be from the IRS or anyone else who unexpectedly contacts you.

This week is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week... The West Allis Communications Center is staffed 24/7 by a talented group of Police and Fire Telecommunicators (AKA Dispatchers) and Telecommunicator Supervisors. Thousands of emergency and non-emergency phone calls for public safety matters are answered by our Dispatchers each year. Dispatchers assist these callers as appropriate and dispatch Police and/or Fire resources as necessary. Dispatchers also provide support for Police and Fire resources in the field. Our dispatchers work behind the scenes and out of the public “eye,” but they are critical to Police and Fire operations. There is no doubt that our Dispatchers and committed to serving the City of West Allis. If you have a chance to come into contact with a Dispatcher this week, please thank them for their service. Public Safety Telecommunications Week started in California in 1981, and was recognized by congress in 1991 as a week to thank dispatchers.

Remember to use caution when buying/selling items with people you just meet over email, internet, social media, etc. We recently responded to an incident in which a citizen was robbed at gunpoint at her residence while trying to sell a phone to a person she met on Facebook. If you are adamant about buying/selling items in this fashion, we recommend taking the following steps to protect yourself: * Conduct the transaction in a well lit, public location that has a lot of people around. Don't forget that the West Allis Police Department, as well as many other local law enforcement agencies, have Internet Purchase Exchange Locations in their parking lots that are under constant video surveillance. * Take a friend with you to complete the transaction. * Provide as little personal information as possible to the other person. * Don't take a lot of cash/valuables to the transaction. * If something doesn't feel right, end your communication/meeting with the other person ASAP. Stay safe!
