This dog was found on 210th St and is at the Carroll Vet Clinic. Please share this so we can get her home with her family.

Due to unforeseeable circumstances we will need to cancel the class for December 8th. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

HAD TO MAKE A CHANGE FOR THE 24TH. IT'S 10AM NOT 10 PM. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.

Yesterday we asked for your help locating a vehicle that was involved in some criminal activity. The response was incredible. Within a short period of time the vehicle and driver were located and the incident was solved. With all of you being so vigilant, it makes our job easier and hard to be a criminal in Carroll County. We thank you and I'm sure the victims are very appreciative as well.

Don’t Become a Statistic It is August in Iowa… State Fair excitement, schools beginning a new year, and then, right around the corner will be Labor Day – the traditional end of summer. This is one of the busiest travel times of the year as many people try and squeeze in one more vacation destination. Others will host or attend end-of-summer social events where alcohol will be served. However you decide to observe the end of summer remember this: it is NEVER okay to drink and drive! If your plans include activities where alcohol will be served make sure you have a plan before you arrive on how you will be getting home. Last Labor Day’s three-day weekend resulted in 10 fatalities in Iowa. That was the highest Labor Day fatality count since 1995. Four of those 10 fatalities were alcohol related. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that during the 2016 holiday (the last year data is available) there were 433 crash fatalities nationwide with 36% involving drivers who were drunk. Almost one in five children (14 and younger) killed in traffic crashes were killed in drunk-driving crashes and 54% of the time, it was the child’s own driver who was drunk. To combat end-of-summer alcohol related fatalities law enforcement agencies in Iowa and across the nation will be stepping up enforcement from August 17 – September 3, 2018. They will especially be watching for impaired and unbelted drivers and there will be zero tolerance to noncompliant drivers. The Iowa Department of Public Safety and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau remind you that drinking and driving is a choice, and it is a choice that should not be made.

THIS PUPPY WAS FOUND OUT BY 12474 PHOENIX. PLEASE CONTACT THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE IF IT BELONGS TO YOU. WE WILL HOLD HER HERE FOR A WHILE BEFORE WE TAKE HER TO THE CARROLL VET CLINIC. OUR NUMBER IS 712/792-4393

The Fourth of July is a day of celebration in the United States. Families get together for picnics and fireworks which usually requires traveling either long or short distances. With increased road use and the possibility of increased alcohol consumption the risk of traffic crashes rise. An analysis by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety showed that on average, more people die in motor vehicle crashes on July Fourth than any other day of the year. The study found that motorcycles and alcohol were both big contributors. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2016 (the latest year in which data is available) 188 people were killed in crashes involving at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. This is a 28 percent increase from 2015 when there were 146 fatalities. Nearly half of those who died were in a vehicle crash involving at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a BAC of .15 or higher – almost twice the legal limit. In Iowa there were five fatalities in 2016 of which four were alcohol related. There were four fatalities in 2017 and one was alcohol related. To combat the impaired driving problem over the Fourth of July holiday there will be increased law enforcement officers on all of Iowa’s roadways July 1 – 4, 2018 to spread the message that drunk driving will not be tolerated. It is NEVER okay to drive after drinking. Have a plan to get home safely if you will be drinking. We want to remind you that the best way to protect yourself in any crash is to be wearing your seat belt. BUCKLE UP EVERY TRIP EVERY TIME

CHANGE HABITS TO SAVE LIVES Beginning May 21 and until June 3, 2018 State and local law enforcement agencies across the United States will be stepping up enforcement with the Click It or Ticket campaign. This concentrated effort will be on the lookout for motorists who aren’t wearing their seat belts. Click It or Ticket is not just about writing traffic tickets; it’s about saving lives. In 2016, the last year in which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has information, there were 10,428 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in the United States. That number is more than the population of Grimes, IA and of 99.5 percent of Iowa’s towns and cities. According to NHTSA 48 percent of the passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2016 were unrestrained. Almost twice as many males were killed in crashes and they had a lower seat belt use rate. It is even worse at night when 56 percent of the fatalities were unrestrained. Patrick Hoye, Bureau Chief, Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau said, “If you have a friend or family member who does not buckle up when they drive, please encourage them to make it a habit. It is such a simple thing to do and it very well could save their life”. The Iowa Department of Public Safety and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau remind you that seat belts save lives, and everyone – front seat and back, child and adult – needs to remember to buckle up – every trip, every time!
