Phishing scams can be hard to spot. For example, we’ve been hearing about one where people get a text message saying that there’s a package waiting for them, and asking them to click a link to learn more. Sounds innocent enough, right? Unfortunately not. More: https://go.usa.gov/xGE3E

Great work by our own Sgt. Savage and APD Officer Clenney! Thank you for your service to our community!

You hear us talk a lot about the concept of community / relational policing -- and today, we wanted to share a great example of what that actually looks like.

Recently, the mother of a UTA student reached out to both APD and The University of Texas at Arlington Police Department for help. Her son has communication impairments -- and she was worried what might happen to him if he ever had an encounter with police.

APD Officer Trevor Clenney, who is assigned to our Mental Health Unit, and UTA Police Sergeant Tom Savage agreed to meet with the student and his mother. They discussed the family's concerns, then ran several mock traffic stops with the student, so he could practice what to do / say to ensure a positive outcome if he was stopped by an officer.

They also checked to make sure the student's license had the proper markings, so any officer would be able to quickly recognize that he has communication impairments.

The student's mother sent the following note to both departments:

"Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to meet us and educate [my son] on what to expect during potential encounters with the UTA and Arlington PD. As parents, we are now more at ease knowing the protocol, resources, and advocates that are available to [my son] while attending UTA. We pray for your continued safety as you work to protect and serve your communities. Have a great rest of the week, and again many thanks."

We'd like to recognize both Officer Clenney and Sgt. Savage for their outstanding and exemplary work!!

Fake check scams take advantage of what we don’t know about how banks handle check deposits. Scammers do know, and they trick people into sending them money before the bank spots the fake. The FTC’s Consumer Sentinel Network database shows that people reported more than 27,000 fake check scams in 2019, with reported losses topping $28 million dollars. And the data suggest that fake check scams disproportionately harm young adults – especially people in their twenties. More: https://go.usa.gov/xwRyT

You’ve probably been hearing a lot about contact tracing. It’s the process of identifying people who have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, instructing them to quarantine and monitoring their symptoms daily.

There’s no question, contact tracing plays a vital role in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19. But scammers, pretending to be contact tracers and taking advantage of how the process works, are also sending text messages.
