***HAIRY RHPD NOVEMBER FUNDRAISER*** The Rose Hill Police Department is in full swing with our Hairy RHPD fundraising campaign. Department members have already donated $25 each in order to grow extra hair, beards or goatees for the entire month of November. For our fundraising efforts, we decided all funds collected will go to a local charity. This year, Hope Connections of SW Butler County was our choice. Hope Connections provides food and hygiene items to families in need in the Rose Hill and Douglass school district boundaries. They also take applications for financial crisis assistance to families living within our community. Facebook address for Hope Connections: https://www.facebook.com/hopeconnectionsbutler/ Now we’re sure you’ve asked yourself by now, how can I get involved? Simple! Make a donation to this fundraiser by cash, check or credit card in person at our station or by calling 316-776-0191 (Monday-Friday, 8-5). Donations can be put in the City Hall Drop Box after hours. If donating by check, make it out to the Rose Hill Police Department. Receipts for your donations will notate the Hairy RHPD Fundraiser. The department is also conducting an internal competition in which the highest fundraiser will be awarded a gift card, bragging rights and trophy. As such, when making your donation, please somehow designate which officer you’d like to get credit for your donation. All numbers will be tallied at the end of the month and announced in early December. We will also share photos throughout the month of how we look and our presentation of ALL donations to Hope Connections of SW Butler County. We thank all who get involved and support our campaign for a local worthy cause that helps our community. If there are any questions about our fundraiser, contact Chief Mosley or Kristie Metcalf.

***Halloween Safety Tips*** Halloween is upon us. Please review and share the following tips from the Rose Hill Police Department for a safe and enjoyable evening!

***Found Dog*** If you have lost this friendly fur baby, worry no longer. He/She is safely being housed at the Rose Hill Vet Clinic It showed up at the trunk or treat event trying to get some candy, but we did not give it any, since chocolate is bad for dogs. If this is your baby, you can pick it up at the clinic on Monday with proof of ownership/vaccination records.

Pictures from the Rose Hill United Methodist Church “trunk or treat” event this evening. Detective Tharp attended and handed out goodies from the police department with Chief Mosley and Officer Chance stopping by. Great weather and a nice turnout!

***SPECIAL TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT ADVISORY*** Starting Monday October 29, 2018 through Friday November 2, 2018, Rose Hill Police Department will join other Kansas law enforcement agencies to stop what has been likened to an epidemic in Kansas. In 2016, 44 children ages 0-19 lost their lives due to car crashes in Kansas. Sadly, almost half of those children were not wearing their seat belts. Law enforcement across Kansas will be extra-vigilant when patrolling around schools for this enforcement project, focusing on seat belt usage around the Middle and Elementary Schools. We will be looking for seat belt and other safety violations so please buckle up and be safe out there! Chief Mosley says, "Even one child's death is unacceptable. Please slow down, especially in school zones, eliminate distractions and ALWAYS buckle up." Children are much more likely to be buckled up if the driver is wearing their seat belt.

Be sure to come see us at the Rose Hill United Methodist Church for “trunk or treat” event from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Get your treat from the Police Department!

***TOTALS ARE IN*** Chief Mosley and Detective Tharp collected a record breaking 176 pounds of prescription and over the counter drugs during the National Drug Take Back Incentive for October 2018. Getting rid of unused, unwanted and expired drugs the safe way keeps them out of our water supply and from being misused. Thank you to all that participated and shared this event, we will see you again in April 2019.

Chief Mosley and Detective Tharp are just a little over half way done with the collection and 4 boxes full!! Still time to come drop off your unwanted, expired and unused prescription drugs.

***TODAY IS THE DAY*** DEA Drug Take Back, October 27, 2018 at Rose Hill Police Department. Drop off unused, expired or left over prescription drugs at 125 W. Rosewood today between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. Stop by and say hi if you are out and about!!

***REMINDER*** DEA Drug Take Back, October 27, 2018 at Rose Hill Police Department. Drop off unused, expired or left over prescription drugs at 125 W. Rosewood next Saturday between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

***Thank You*** Special thanks to Pastor Joe Cowell, members of the Victory Fellowship Church and Village Inn restaurant for the delicious pie delivery today. A couple weeks ago Pastor Joe asked officers to divulge their favorite pie flavor. Today's delivery of everyone's favorite pie made a nice treat to receive and share with other city employees. Thank you from each and every one of us for your kindness and support.

***CONGRATULATIONS!!*** K-9/SRO Officer Blake Weekley just completed 5 intense weeks of training with K-9 Officer Urlo. The K-9 team is now state certified and ready to hit the streets.

***Please share this with everyone you know*** The Rose Hill Police Department wants you to be aware of the numerous telephone scams out there. Don’t let yourself become a victim. Ask questions, verify the story and tell someone else about it before you send money to anyone. If you are told to go buy gift cards and call the person back with the information, DON'T DO IT, this is a scam!!! The IRS will not send the "local police" to "take you under custody" for "serious allegations against you". This seems to be the most common scam recently, yes, even we get these calls. Do not give your checking account information to anyone threatening you over the phone. If you are ever in doubt, please call, 316-776-0191 and request to speak with an officer. Be aware of some common phone scams such as Free Vacations and Prizes, Loan Scams, Phony Debt Collectors, Fake Charities, Medical Alert/Scams Targeting Seniors, Warrant Threats and IRS Calls. Below is a link for Consumer Information from the Federal Trade Commission for tips and advice regarding phone scams. https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0076-phone-scams

***CHALLENGE COINS FOR SALE*** Get your own Rose Hill Police Department Challenge Coin A little history about challenge coins. There are many examples of traditions that build camaraderie in the military, police department, fire department and other organizations, but few are as well-respected as the practice of carrying a challenge coin. A challenge coin is a small coin or medallion, bearing an organization's insignia or emblem and carried by the organization's members. Traditionally, they are given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. They are also exchanged in recognition of visits to an organization. Several people collect challenge coins from across the world making each one special with their own story to tell. Please stop by the Rose Hill Police Department and pick yours up today and start your collection for just $5.00.
