News Release On October 28th at approximately 1130 p.m. our office received a teletype from the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office regarding an attempt to locate welfare check on a male subject identified as Daniel Tinney. The information provided to us was that Mr. Tinney had made vague suicidal statements and was believed to be in the area of Black Hall Mountain in Carbon County WY. Over the last few days, our office learned of missing person flyers being shared on social media, indicating that Mr. Tinney had been hunting in the southern portion of the Medicine Bow National Forest and was presumed lost. These flyers indicated that the authorities had been notified and it listed our Dispatch centers phone number. Our office fielded numerous tips and cell pings which were all checked and confirmed to be negative. On October 31st at approximately 1155 a.m. Albany County Sheriff Deputies responded to the area of Fox Creek road, west of Laramie, for a report of a deceased male subject near a vehicle matching the description of Mr. Tinney’s vehicle. Deputies were able to confirm the deceased subject was Mr. Tinney. The preliminary investigation indicates that Mr. Tinney died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The Albany County Sheriff’s Office wants to thank the community for being helpful in trying to locate Mr. Tinney. Undersheriff J. DeBree

Dear Concerned Citizens of Albany County, WY With Halloween right around the corner, it is crucial that you know which houses your children should avoid when trick-or-treating. I invite you to view our website http://www.communitynotification.com/cap_main.php?office=55700/ so you can research neighborhoods and addresses that are important to you, and register to receive e-mail notifications on registered sex offenders within proximity of these addresses. The most beneficial aspect of the address monitoring feature is that once your important addresses and e-mail address have been registered, the system will automatically alert you via e-mail when an offender moves within a specified radius of the registered address. Register any and all addresses where your children spend a lot of time; for example friends, grandparents, or babysitter’s addresses. Registering for this confidential e-mail alert service allows us to monitor your important addresses for you, thereby keeping you up to date of newly registered offenders and making it unnecessary for you to have to check these addresses daily or even weekly. While visiting our website you can also view and print important safety tips to review with your children. The e-mail notifications and discussing the various safety tips helps increase awareness. It is the goal of our office to provide accurate information to the public regarding the dangers of sexual predators, and to further build community awareness. To help us achieve this goal we utilize OffenderWatch® to manage, monitor the whereabouts, and conduct compliance checks of the registered sex offenders within our community. “Community Notification” empowers you with the knowledge that can be used to protect yourself and your family from becoming victims. I firmly believe that the more educated and aware a community is of what and where the dangers lurk, the more success we have with our community notification program. Happy Halloween, Sheriff Dave O’Malley

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Oct. 5, 2018 CONTACT: Pete Abrams, WYDOT Law Enforcement Liaison dpabrams@bresnan.net 307-277-5696 Matt Murphy, WYDOT Public Relations Specialist, District 1 matthew.murphy@wyo.gov 307-745-2142 Wyoming, Utah, and Idaho team up for traffic safety operation CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Eight drivers were arrested for driving under the influence during a three-state traffic safety operation last weekend in conjunction with the University of Wyoming-Boise State University football game. Six of the DUI arrests were conducted by the Idaho State Police, while two were recorded by the Utah Highway Patrol. In all, the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Idaho State Police, and Utah Highway Patrol made a combined 825 traffic stops from Friday, Sept. 28, through Sunday, Sept. 30, along the Interstate 80 and 84 route between Laramie and Boise. About half of those stops resulted in warnings, while 291 were speeding citations, 23 were seatbelt citations, and 159 were other citations. There were also three child restraint citations, 13 controlled substance arrests, and six arrests for other infractions. One fatality was recorded in Idaho. The three state police organizations teamed up as part of a larger, multi-state effort to hold traffic safety operations in conjunction with Mountain West football games. The next game for which the Wyoming Highway Patrol will conduct a traffic safety operation will be during the Border War game between UW and Colorado State University on Oct. 28 – the fourth year for that operation. “We want fans to make sure they get to and from football games safely,” said Col. Kebin Haller of the Wyoming Highway Patrol. “Fans should make the right choice and always designate a sober driver.” As part of the operation, Col. Haller and Col. Kedrick Wills of the Idaho State Police created a public service announcement video featuring both men with the same message – don’t drink and drive. The video was posted to WYDOT and WHP social media pages the week prior to the game. For up-to-date travel information in Wyoming, visit wyoroad.info, call 5-1-1, or download the Wyoming 511 app.

The Albany County Sheriff's Office just received a phone call stating we owe back-taxes and could go to jail if we don't pay up! That's pretty funny if you ask us 😂 Make sure you don't give ANY information out over the phone to people claiming to be the IRS or law enforcement agencies. The phone number they called from was (714)249-5097. Please let your friends and family members know there is a scam going around state-wide and to be very cautious about phone calls like this. Stay safe, Albany County!
