Gogebic County Sheriff's Office News

Thank you for your service Veterans.

We have been taking a lot of calls of vehicles in the ditch. The roads are snow covered and slippery. If you need to travel, please travel slow and take your time.

For those that have called us wondering when the bridge over M28 will reopen this is all we know as well.

Ironwood Public Safety Department, along with the Gogebic County Sheriff’s Office, recommend the following for parents allowing their children to trick or treat this year. 1. Trick or Treat will be held on Wednesday, October 31, in all cities and townships within Gogebic County. The recommended hours for Trick or Treating are between 4:00pm-7:00pm. Try to Trick or Treat during daylight hours. 2. Children should wear light colored clothing or have reflective tape on their clothing so they can be easily seen. Also, carry a flashlight, if possible. 3. Young children should be accompanied by a parent or adult. 4. Children should Trick or Treat only in their neighborhood, on well lighted streets. 5. Visit homes with porch lights on, which welcome Trick or Treating. 6. When children Trick or Treat with friends, have them inform you of their route and when they plan to be back home. 7. Parents should insist that treats be brought home for inspection before anything is eaten. Fruit should be washed; unpacked items should be discarded. If any treat looks suspicious, contact the Ironwood Public Safety Department or the Sheriff's Office. Remember that children look forward only to the good things about Halloween, therefore, parents should prepare and alert their children to the possible dangers. Every year on Halloween many children suffer from auto accidents, fire injuries, falls, cuts, bruises and poisoned “treats” and other unnecessary miseries. It’s important that they know of the dangers and they know how to avoid them so they have a safe, enjoyable Halloween.

With heavy hearts, we mourn the death of our co-worker and friend Deputy Sheriff Sue Cestkowski. Sue passed away unexpectedly last evening of natural causes. She served her position admirably, with dedication and loyalty, for 21 years. Sue your time with us was cherished, you will never be forgotten. May you Rest in Peace!

With the new school year starting on Tuesday across the Range here are some safety tips to keep in mind once again.

The 8th annual Danny B Awareness Jack n Jill Softball Tournament was held this weekend. This is a great event that helps to raise awareness and fund the Range Area Suicide Prevention programs in our area. Thanks to everyone that participated! https://www.facebook.com/groups/222014804514416/ Here we see a couple of future softball players enjoying playing Dunk a Cop. They got the job done. Thanks GCSD Deputy Beaudette for being a sport!

Another SCAM Alert They seem to be making the rounds lately. Had a concerned citizen ask that we put a notice out that the "IRS" is calling and threatening to send local law enforcement if a payment isn't made in the 906 area code again. Not happening. The IRS will never: * Call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill. * Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe. * Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card. * Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. * Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying. The IRS does have a scam reporting webpage: https://www.treasury.gov/tigta/contact_report_scam.shtml You can also call 800-366-4484

NOTICE TO BID - USED SQUAD CARS

Animal Abuse - News Release

The Sheriff's Office recently received a scam complaint from a local resident. A man with a middle eastern accent claimed to be from Publisher's Clearing House. He asked for a down payment and money to be wired via Walmart Money Transfer to receive the prizes "won." Unfortunately money was wired on several occasions both within and outside the country. The Sheriff's Office recommends not wiring people money to claim prizes ever.

Local election results have been posted.
