For Immediate Release to the Public*** SCAM ALERT! We have been contacted several times this morning by citizens reporting that they received a phone call claiming to be the IRS and requesting personal information. If you receive a phone call such as this, the public needs to BE AWARE THAT IT IS MOST LIKELY A SCAM! We suggest NOT PROVIDING any personal information over the phone. IRS has posted this information to their public website: (reference irs.gov) "Many taxpayers have encountered individuals impersonating IRS officials – in person, over the telephone and via email. Don’t get scammed. We want you to understand how and when the IRS contacts taxpayers and help you determine whether a contact you may have received is truly from an IRS employee. The IRS initiates most contacts through regular mail delivered by the United States Postal Service. However, there are special circumstances in which the IRS will call or come to a home or business, such as when a taxpayer has an overdue tax bill, to secure a delinquent tax return or a delinquent employment tax payment, or to tour a business as part of an audit or during criminal investigations. Even then, taxpayers will generally first receive several letters (called “notices”) from the IRS in the mail."

We would like to take a couple of moments to say Thank You for sending our Baxter Springs Police Officers individualized "Thank You" cards as well as cards printed with "A Police Officers Prayer". So at this time the Baxter Springs Police Department says Thank You to the organization known as "Thankful For Our Heroes in Blue" for sending these cards and for your support! Have a Wonderful Day

We would like to take a moment out of our day today to say "Thank You" to a couple of folks... We received 3 letters in the mail here at the Baxter Springs Police Department that thanked our Officers for keeping the community safe as well as wishing us a blessed day! These messages surely brightened our day, and on behalf of all of our department we say Thank You!
