Last Friday, EPD had the pleasure of joining in on the festivities at the Trunk or Treat event hosted by Evanston Parks & Recreation at Robert Crown Community Center. Officer Schienbein, Officer Daley, and Officer Howard handed out treats to attendees, while 311 Service Desk Officers Denise Doggett and Maria Aguilar dressed up as witches and hosted games.

Although our Baby Yoda squad didn't win for the best decorations, it was still an enjoyable and family-friendly event. The real reward was seeing all the amazing costumes and the children having a blast. A big thank you to Evanston Parks & Recreation for organizing such a great event!

SCAM ALERT:
The Evanston Police Department is warning the public about a traffic ticket scam. Several citizens have reported receiving phone calls from Sergeant Sophier with the Evanston Police Department about traffic tickets they need to pay or be arrested. When the target of the scam has attempted to disengage the scammer, the scammer calls from a spoof number mimicking the US Marshal's Service or City of Evanston 3-1-1. The scam calls have been placed from 312-353-5290. When this number is called, the call goes to the voicemail of a scammer posing as Sergeant Sophier.

This call is a scam and is not affiliated with the Evanston Police Department. Do not provide these callers with financial information, and do not agree to meet them. If you have fallen victim to this scam, you can call the Evanston Police Department to make a report at 847-866-5000.

Introducing the New Evanston Animal Warden, Perry Kubala!
Please take a moment to read about Perry and join us in welcoming her to the Evanston community!

"I am an animal advocate with nearly 10 years of experience in animal control, welfare and rescue, strongly motivated to promote responsible pet ownership and raise awareness of animal overpopulation. My goal is to strengthen the human-animal bond and keep pets with their families through education and outreach, and I believe in giving abused or neglected animals a second chance in finding their forever homes. In my free time I enjoy hiking with my partner and our dog, attending music events, or doing any sort of arts-and-crafts!
