It has been reported to the Leesville Police Department that some persons have been receiving phone calls from individuals claiming to be from the "IRS" and demanding that payments be made. We would like to remind the citizens of our community that the IRS initiates most contacts through regular mail delivered by the United States Postal Service. There may be special circumstances in which the IRS will call or come to a home or business; however, even then, taxpayers will generally first receive several letters (called “notices”) from the IRS in the mail. Note that the IRS does not: •Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Generally, the IRS will first mail a bill to any taxpayer who owes taxes. •Demand that you pay taxes without the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe. You should also be advised of your rights as a taxpayer. •Threaten to bring in local police, immigration officers or other law-enforcement to have you arrested for not paying. The IRS also cannot revoke your driver’s license, business licenses, or immigration status. Threats like these are common tactics scam artists use to trick victims into buying into their schemes.

This Labor Day, and Every Day: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Each year, Americans mark the end of summer with the Labor Day holiday weekend, a time to celebrate the hard work and many accomplishments of our country. Friends and families eagerly await pool parties, backyard barbecues, and other occasions to enjoy the last days of summer sunshine. Sadly, the Labor Day holiday has also become one of the deadliest, with drunk drivers endangering themselves and others on their way home from these holiday festivities. Leesville Police Department will once again be partnering with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission (LHSC) to get drunk drivers off the roads and help save lives. The high-visibility national enforcement campaign, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, runs from August 17 through September 3, 2018. During this period, local law enforcement will show zero tolerance for drunk driving. Increased State and national messages about the dangers of driving impaired, coupled with enforcement and increased officers on the road, aim to drastically reduce drunk driving on our nation’s roadways. Sadly, the statistics prove that we have a lot of work to do to put an end to drunk driving. According to NHTSA, 10,497 people were killed in drunk-driving crashes in 2016. On average, 10,000 people were killed each year from 2012 to 2016—one person killed every 50 minutes in 2016. That’s the equivalent of 20 jumbo jets crashing each year, with no survivors. This is why Leesville Police Department is working with NHTSA to remind drivers that drunk driving is not only illegal, it is a matter of life and death. As you head out to Labor Day festivities, remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. We need our community to understand that it’s up to them to make the smart decision to drive sober—Labor Day, and every day. Impaired driving is a huge problem in our country, and the numbers are rising, little by little. This isn’t about a ticketing campaign. This is about a campaign to get the message out that impaired driving is illegal and it takes lives. Help us put an end to this senseless behavior. Leesville Police Department recommends these safe alternatives to drinking and driving: • Remember that it is never okay to drink and drive. Even if you’ve had only one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or plan to use public transportation or a ride sharing service to get home safely. • If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact law enforcement • Have a friend who is about to drink and drive? Take the keys away and make arrangements to get your friend home safely. • Download NHTSA’s SaferRide mobile app, available on Google Play for Android devices and Apple’s iTunes Store for iOS devices. SaferRide allows users to call a taxi or a predetermined friend, and identifies the user’s location so he or she can be picked up.

UPDATE: This pet's owner has been located and T-Bone will be going home today! We would like to thank everyone for assisting in getting him home. Original Post: The Leesville Police Department responded to a call of a pup on the loose today. He is friendly and well taken care of (and tired). It appears he slipped his collar. We are looking for his owners. He will be at the Vernon Parish Animal Shelter awaiting his owners arrival. Please share so he can be reunited with his family and go back home!
