Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone at Sandpoint PD, as well as their families.

On 2/21/18, the Police Department received two calls from concerned citizens reporting that they believed they had received phone calls from someone attempting to scam them. It appears that the "Grandparent Scam" (see below) is making a reappearance in our area. Please share! Thanks! ***The grandparent scam is a form of telephone fraud. The scammer phones a grandparent and pretends to be a grandchild in distress and asks that funds be wired to a specified location.The scammers often say that the grandchild needs money because of an accident, an injury, a theft or an arrest. Sometimes the "grandchild" pleads that other family members not be told because DUI or embarrassing circumstances are involved. Never wire money to an unknown person. If you receive a call about a family member in distress, verify the information with family members before taking any further action.

Having received a large accumulation of snow in the past few days we would like to remind those that live within city limits that Priest River City Code 6-2-2c states, in summary, that you may not park a vehicle within six feet (6') of any city street within the residential area at any time after snow has fallen, so as to not disrupt normal snowplowing operations. These parking restrictions shall remain in effect after the snow has ceased to fall until snow removal operations have been completed. Our Public Works department is currently working to clear the streets and will continue to do so tomorrow in the very early morning. Please help us in making this easier for them by removing your vehicles from the side of the street. Thank you!

There are two young moose in the area of Highway 2 and Main St. Please watch for them as you are driving in this area!
