The Holiday Season is fast approaching and with it, the annual Paris Police Association's "Shop With A Cop" Fund raising drive has begun! Last year the generosity of the people of Edgar County enabled us to help approximately 350 children. This year we expect to see that number increase by as many as 50 more children. We buy the children warm winter clothing and spend 125.00 per child and 100.00 per infant. It is our hope that if you have contributed in the past and wish to give again this year, that you please do so. We ask that those who would like to make a donation to drop it off or mail it to: Paris Police Department 211 W. Washington St. Paris, IL 61944. Check may be made out to Paris Police Association c/o Shop with a Cop.

Congratulations to Officer Phillip Kohlenberg who has been promoted to Sergeant!

Paris Police Department discovered that two skimmers have been used at the Circle K gas station located at Jasper & Main Streets. These skimmers take credit/debit card information and also take the pin # that was inputted into the machine. This is a major concern as most skimmers are located outside of the pump. These were located inside the gas pump. We currently have a detective and a retired State Fire Marshall at the scene to secure evidence. Whenever you use a gas pump, shake the card receptor prior to using. Some skimmers are magnetically connected to the outside of the receptor. Check to see if there is security tape along the perimeter of the pump door, and keep tabs on your accounts. There is a free app called skimmer scanner. It uses Bluetooth as you wave it around the card receptor to see if your card is being scanned. It is not guaranteed to work 100% of the time, but it is better than no protection. Again, keep vigilant with your accounts and notify your bank immediately if you suspect and ID theft. Chief Henness

Paris Police Department would like to thank these three young ladies who sold lemonade and homemade cookies for donations to shop with a cop! The girls hard work brought $75.00 to be put to great use in our community through shop with a cop! Way to go girls!!
