Over the past few weeks, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office has been fielding SCAM complaints related to teenagers snap chat accounts. The complaints indicate that an unknown person contacts a Snapchat account holder and offers them money via the issuance of an emailed check. Once the teenager deposits the check into their bank account, the SCAMMER claims that they took money from an elderly person and demands they pay back the money. THESE EMAILED CHECKS ARE FAKE and will present themselves as such once the bank reviews them, leaving the teenager at a loss of funds once the check is rejected by the bank. Please talk to your child about this scam.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office commends the great community members of the Marsh Lane Home Owners Association in Painesville Township for their commitment to ensuring that their neighborhood remains a safe and secure environment for all of their residents!

The Challenge of 9-11

It is hard to believe that 20 years have passed since that tragic day of September 11, 2001. To give some perspective, we have already graduated from high school young men and women who were not yet born on that day.

On this day it is repeated across our nation that we must never forget that day when such terror came to our shores. But even more critical is that we never forget the sense of duty and personal sacrifice that was shown by our first responders and so many other unknown citizens who rose up in crisis, sacrificing their lives to help their fellow citizens in extreme danger.

Some today question the resolve of our youth and their willingness to rise up and defend this Nation rather then tear it down. They question whether or not our Constitution and the fabric of this Nation can withstand the great adversity it faces today on our street and across our media. I believe differently and have great confidence not only in our youth but in all citizenry that the sprit of our founding fathers will prevail. Remember on this 20th anniversary of 9-11 the sense of purpose, duty to Country, and willingness to sacrifice their own lives that continued on after that dark September day when so many young men and women without personal regard freely and without reserve volunteered to go to foreign lands to defend our Nation. That sense of purpose, duty to Country, and willingness to sacrifice showed in so many areas throughout the United States and we stood as one Nation, one people.

Our hope as a Sheriff’s Office is that everyone remembers and never forgets the fighting spirit and true sense of national pride that this Country and its citizens have shown in rising to every adversity we have ever faced. We will work through our differences and we will be a stronger Nation because all of us are Americans.

It was Abraham Lincoln who said on battlefield at Gettysburg “It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Truly, united we stand, divided we fall. On this September 11th may all of us re-dedicate ourselves to this great Nation and rekindle the spirit the citizenship and care for our fellow neighbors that have been the foundations of our success.
