JASPER COUNTY, IOWA SCAM ALERT-9/25/18 Recently the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office has received reports of scam phone calls. During these situations, a caller will indicate that they are from the Internal Revenue Service and the person being called owes money. If the person does not agree to provide information or payment, the caller indicates that the Sheriff or Law Enforcement will be at their residence with an arrest warrant. The second type of call is a person who claims to be from Publisher’s Clearing House. They are calling and asking if the person is currently at home, so they can come to the house and present the award. They may also try to get additional personal information during the call. Citizens are encouraged to verify the credibility of these calls and to never provide personal information over the phone to unknown sources.

The Jasper County Sheriff’s Office would like to verify that we will be sending out donation request letters in support of the National Child Safety Council, child safety and drug prevention education program.

Jasper County, Iowa August-2018 With the beginning of a new school year, we have had the privilege of presenting ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) to several local school districts. ALICE empowers employees to make decisions on the best response during a violent or active shooter encounter. ALICE principles can be applied in almost any setting, at school, at home, the workplace, in a mall or restaurant, or in a place of worship. This week Colfax Mingo, Lynnville-Sully, and Sully Christian employees all received the training. Nearly 200 people attended the training sessions. Along with ALICE, we are also presenting the Stop The Bleed training. Stop The Bleed training includes information on how to maintain a victim’s airway, proper control of bleeding, including direct pressure and in some cases, tourniquet application, and finally watching for signs of shock. In many events, citizens are the first responders helping someone who has been injured. Using basic Stop the Bleed instruction, an injured party is more likely to survive with immediate intervention. For more information please contact us at the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office.
