Multi-Jurisdictional Sex Offender Verification Checks

Kendall County, IL (October 23, 2020, 12:15 PM)

On October 21, 2020, the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office hosted a multi-jurisdictional police initiative to check compliance on all registered sex offenders and registered violent offenders against youth residing in Kendall County. Investigators from 5 police agencies worked together to conduct compliance checks on 68 offenders. As a result of these checks, investigators identified 6 offenders that were possibly in violation of the Sex Offender Registration Act or the Violent Offender Against Youth Registration Act, and criminal investigations into these allegations are being conducted.

The police agencies involved in this initiative are the Yorkville Police Department, Plano Police Department, Plainfield Police Department, Kendall County Sheriff’s Office, and the United States Marshals Service.

Sheriff Dwight Baird stated, “The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office is committed to the safety and security of our citizens. To meet this obligation, we will continue to conduct regular compliance checks on sex offenders and violent offenders to ensure they comply with their requirements to accurately register with law enforcement. We are fortunate to have a great working relationship with local and federal law enforcement agencies, which maximizes the effectiveness of these efforts. The Sheriff’s Office will continue to work in cooperation with all police agencies in and around Kendall County to take proactive steps toward reducing crime and maintaining the high quality of life that our community offers.”

Please see attached joint press release from the Sheriff's Office and the Kendall County State's Attorney's Office regarding trespassing on private property and stealing political yards signs

"Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis and Kendall County Sheriff Dwight Baird are reminding the citizens of Kendall County that stealing or vandalizing political yard signs is a crime. It is also a crime to place a political sign on private property without the property owner’s permission.

"If law enforcement is contacted regarding signs unlawfully placed on private property or signs vandalized or stolen, officers will respond, investigate, and seek criminal charges, where appropriate. Please keep in mind, every time an officer reports to investigate these matters, that is one less officer on the road protecting our streets and available to investigate other crimes.

We have less than one month until the November 3, 2020, General Election. Please respect your fellow citizen’s private property and their freedom of expression. Regardless of political persuasion, the right of an individual to express their support for a specific candidate through yard signs and other electioneering material is a fundamental aspect of our democracy. Individuals do not, however, have a right to trespass on the property of another or to steal or vandalize the personal property of another. These are crimes.

Please respect your neighbors, the time and effort of law enforcement, and our election process."

Just a reminder that school is back in session and to please obey the speed limits, especially in a school zone! This morning we had stopped a vehicle for traveling at 60 miles per hour in the school zone on Mitchell Drive. The driver was charged with the misdemeanor and will have a day in court next month. The Illinois Vehicle Code states a person committing a violation of 625 ILCS 5/11-605 is guilty of aggravated special speed limit while passing schools when he or she drives a motor vehicle at a speed that is: (1) 26 miles per hour or more but less than 35 miles per hour in excess of the applicable special speed limit established under this Section or a similar provision of a local ordinance and is guilty of a Class B misdemeanor; or (2) 35 miles per hour or more in excess of the applicable special speed limit established under this Section or a similar provision of a local ordinance and is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. There are also higher fines associated with this and you may have your vehicle impounded as a result.

It is with great sadness that the Plano Police Department announces the passing of Record’s Supervisor Theresa Bagg. Theresa gave 30 plus years of dedicated service to the Plano Police Department and the City of Plano. Theresa took great pride in the way that she connected with the many citizens and law enforcement professionals that she came into contact with throughout her years with the Plano Police Department. Theresa gave many hours to the DARE program, Illinois Special Olympics, Plano Rockin Christmas, and was an original member of the Plano chapter of Character Counts. Theresa also took pride in serving as an associate member of the Kendall County Association of Chiefs of Police. With this announcement, the members of the Plano Police Department have heavy hearts from losing a loved member of our organization. Theresa was not only our Record’s Supervisor but also an integral part of our law enforcement family and she will be missed dearly.

Businesses and Citizens:

Recently we were told by a valued business in our community that they received a call from someone asking them to donate money to the Plano Police Department for the youth of our community. We are always grateful for donations when it comes to the DARE program, Shop With a Cop, and other programs but will come in person to ask for assistance. Our organization does not want anyone to fall for a scam when it comes to donating to the Plano Police Department. Out of respect for you and your time, we would come in person or call you personally should we ever request donations within the City of Plano for any reason.

Thank you.

Did you receive a debit card from the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) in the mail - BUT you did NOT file for IDES benefits?

Residents should be aware of identity theft regarding individuals who did NOT apply for unemployment through the state, but received benefit claim information.

If you receive a letter and/or debit card from the Illinois Department of Employment Security without filing with the IDES residents are encouraged to:

1) Monitor your credit (visit http://www.annualcreditreport.com)
Why do we recommend www.annualcreditreport.com? You are entitled to one free credit report (not score) a year from each of the three services: Equifax, Experian and Transunion a year. If you prefer the phone, the number to call for your annual credit report is 1-877-322-8228. You can also place an alert on your credit, or even a freeze.

2) Notify IDES via https://www2.illinois.gov/ides/Pages/Contact-IDES_Form.aspx

3) Notify the Federal Trade Commission via http://www.ftc.gov (select File a Consumer Complaint, and then File a Complaint)

4) File a police report ONLY IF your identity has been stolen.

Make sure you review your credit report carefully for anything unusual or credit cards you did not open. If you find you are a victim of identity theft, make sure you file a police report with your local police.

Once you have done all of the above, destroy the card by cutting or shredding.

Lately, there have been citizens receiving scam phone calls about identity theft from the Social Security Administration. For more information you can go to the Social Security Administration web page but here are some useful tips:

If there is a problem, we will mail you a letter with your Social Security number. Generally, we will only contact you if you have requested a call or have ongoing business with us. The latest scam trick of using robocalls or live callers has increased. Fraudsters pretend to be government employees and claim there is identity theft or another problem with one’s Social Security number, account, or benefits.
Scammers may threaten arrest or other legal action, or may offer to increase benefits, protect assets, or resolve identity theft. They often demand payment via retail gift cards, wire transfers, pre-paid debit cards, internet currency, or mailing cash.
Our employees will never threaten you for information or promise a benefit in exchange for personal information or money. Social Security may call you in some situations, but will never:
• Threaten you.
• Suspend your Social Security number.
• Demand immediate payment from you.
• Require payment by cash, gift card, pre-paid debit card, internet currency, or wire transfer.
• Ask for gift card numbers over the phone or to wire or mail cash.
Don’t be fooled! You should look out for:
• A caller saying there is a problem with your Social Security number or account.
• Any call asking you to pay a fine or debt with retail gift cards, wire transfers, pre-paid debit cards, internet currency, or by mailing cash.
• Scammers pretending they’re from Social Security or another government agency. Caller ID or documents sent by email may look official but they are not.
How to protect yourself and your family!
• If you receive a questionable call, hang up, and report the call to our Office of the Inspector General.
• Don’t return unknown calls.
• Ask someone you trust for advice before making any large purchase or financial decision.
• Don’t be embarrassed to report if you shared personal financial information or suffered a financial loss.
• Learn more at oig.ssa.gov/scam.
• Share this information with friends and family.
