Summer & hot weather has FINALLY arrived, please remember these important water safety tips! Don’t drink & boat, know the boating rules & follow them, watch for inclement weather, let someone know your plan, where you are going, when you plan to return, wear your life jacket, practice propeller safety, if you are on the river, be aware of what is downstream. Be prepared & know what to do if someone goes overboard. Practice courtesy to other boaters on the water. Have fun but be safe!

The Bingham County Sheriff’s Office has received reports of individuals and business entities receiving phone calls from subjects posing as members of the Bingham County Sheriff’s Office, advising the subjects that they are calling because they have outstanding tickets or fees and are requesting individuals to release their financial information to pay the fees over the phone. Please be advised that members of the Sheriff’s Office would never call individuals regarding these types of matters, these types of calls are a scam. Please stay vigilant and do not release your personal or financial information to entities that you do not know or have not verified their credibility.
