FEDERAL GRANT AWARDED TO MARSHALL POLICE DEPARTMENT

Ms. Debra Brackman with Pioneer Trails RPC presented Mayor Julie Schwetz with a $70,814.37 federal grant which was awarded from Homeland Security through Pioneer Trails RPC allowing the Marshall Police Department to update their current radio system.

The money will be used to purchase mobile radios and repeaters for officers and vehicles which will allow officers better communications with Emergency Management, Fire, Ambulance and other agencies during emergencies.

Past joint exercises consisting of Marshall Police, Emergency Management, Fire and Ambulance revealed a problem in communications as one agency could be setting up a mobile hospital at one location of Marshall while another agency is assessing patients and damage and trying to report to another agency across town. The common problem for all agencies was the radio signal was too weak and in some locations would not transmit a radio signal to a receiving entity with vital information.

With the use of the grant money, repeaters will be purchased and placed in patrol cars so all agencies using a set emergency frequency to the repeater will be able to extend their usable range and communicate more clearly which will provide better service for citizens during an emergency.

SHOP WITH A COP 2021

The Marshall Police Department would like to thank the citizens of Marshall, local business and organizations which helped make Shop with a Cop 2021 a great success.

Without your help and support this would not have been possible. We would like to give a special thank you to Sturhahn Jewelers for their sizeable contribution from a recent grab bag sale which Shop with a Cop received 100 percent of the profits.

Due to your generous contributions, we were able to take children shopping for the holidays. The Officers had the pleasure of spending time shopping for shoes, coats, clothing and especially TOYS.

A very special thank you to Wal-Mart, Cargill Meat Solutions for their continued support and fund raisers and Mazzio’s Pizza for cooking up fresh pizzas for our shoppers to take home and enjoy.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

The Marshall Police Department would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving as family and friends gather to enjoy festivities. We would also like to remind motorists of the following safety tips:

Plan your trip before you embark on your journey.

Have your car checked by a mechanic. Make sure all fluid levels are checked and your vehicle is in top running condition.

Take a break every two hours on long trips and take turns driving.

Studies have shown that weary drivers are just as much a threat as drunk drivers are on our highways.

Don’t let your children go to a rest stop alone. When taking a break, always accompany your children to the rest area facilities.

As you begin traveling this holiday we would like to cover a few safety tips to keep you and your family safe.

While Traveling:

DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE RUNNING AND UNATTENDED.

Be aware of the current road conditions.

Park in a well-lit and well-traveled areas.

Keep your car’s doors locked at all times.

Don’t use cell phones or other electronic devices while driving.

Don’t place your baggage or other valuables in a place where criminals can easily see them.

Park as close as you can to your destination and always remember to turn off your car, lock and remove your keys when exiting.

When approaching or leaving your vehicle, be aware of your surroundings and never carry a large amount of cash or valuables.

Don’t drink and drive, and don’t ride with anyone who has been drinking.

While at your destination:

Be aware of your surroundings.

Beware of strangers approaching you for any reason.

Be able to describe your exact location in an emergency situation.

If you’ve had something stolen or have been the victim of a crime, it’s important to report the incident immediately by calling 911.

11/03/2021

FOUR SIGNS IT'S A SCAM AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO AVOID A SCAM.

Four Signs That It’s a Scam

1. Scammers PRETEND to be from an organization you know.

Scammers often pretend to be contacting you on behalf of the government. They might use a real name, like the Social Security Administration, the IRS, or Medicare, or make up a name that sounds official. Some pretend to be from a business you know, like a utility company, a tech company, or even a charity asking for donations.

They use technology to change the phone number that appears on your caller ID. So the name and number you see might not be real.

2. Scammers say there’s a PROBLEM or a PRIZE.

They might say you’re in trouble with the government. Or you owe money. Or someone in your family had an emergency. Or that there’s a virus on your computer.

Some scammers say there’s a problem with one of your accounts and that you need to verify some information.

Others will lie and say you won money in a lottery or sweepstakes but have to pay a fee to get it.

3. Scammers PRESSURE you to act immediately.

Scammers want you to act before you have time to think. If you’re on the phone, they might tell you not to hang up so you can’t check out their story.

They might threaten to arrest you, sue you, take away your driver’s or business license, or deport you. They might say your computer is about to be corrupted.

4. Scammers tell you to PAY in a specific way.

They often insist that you pay by sending money through a money transfer company or by putting money on a gift card and then giving them the number on the back.

Some will send you a check (that will later turn out to be fake), tell you to deposit it, and then send them money.

What You Can Do to Avoid a Scam

Block unwanted calls and text messages. Take steps to block unwanted calls and to filter unwanted text messages.

Don’t give your personal or financial information in response to a request that you didn’t expect. Legitimate organizations won’t call, email, or text to ask for your personal information, like your Social Security, bank account, or credit card numbers.

If you get an email or text message from a company you do business with and you think it’s real, it’s still best not to click on any links. Instead, contact them using a website you know is trustworthy. Or look up their phone number. Don’t call a number they gave you or the number from your caller ID.

Resist the pressure to act immediately. Legitimate businesses will give you time to make a decision. Anyone who pressures you to pay or give them your personal information is a scammer.

Know how scammers tell you to pay. Never pay someone who insists you pay with a gift card or by using a money transfer service. And never deposit a check and send money back to someone.

Stop and talk to someone you trust. Before you do anything else, tell someone — a friend, a family member, a neighbor — what happened. Talking about it could help you realize it’s a scam.
