Over the last several weeks the Kingman Police Department has taken dozens of reports of vehicle and home burglaries.  Most of the vehicles had been left unlocked, making it easy for the criminals to gain entry.  Several of the home burglaries have occurred while the home occupants are in the home sleeping.  Entry into the homes is also through unlocked doors.  The burglaries have occurred between the hours of 10:00pm and 4:00am at different areas around the city and county.  Everyone is asked to lock your vehicles, lock the doors and windows on your homes, leave outside lights on, be vigilant, remove valuables from your vehicles, and report any suspicious activity.  The best defense against being victimized is prevention.  Take reasonable precautions to protect yourself and your home.   These criminals haven’t shown to be violent or confrontational, however it is very brazen to enter an occupied home, therefore all care should be taken to protect yourself.  Be very aware and familiar with laws regarding self-defense and protecting your home.  Anyone with information leading to the arrest and apprehension of those responsible for these or any crimes are urged to contact the Kingman Police Department by calling (928) 753-2191, report anonymously to Mohave Silent Witness by calling (928) 753-1234, report tips online at www.kingmanpolice.com by clicking on “Give A Tip”.  KPD also has a new App that can be downloaded for free from the App Store, by searching “Kingman Police Department”.  Tips can also be submitted via the KPD app.  A reward is being offered.  Anyone with questions on home and self-defense can contact KPD and direct questions to Deputy Chief Rusty Cooper, Lieutenant Bob Fisk or Sergeant David Reif.

Beale St.  The investigation revealed that Liewer’s motorcycle was traveling in excess of 140mph when he lost control and was eject from the motorcycle, causing serious injuries to his body and head.  Liewer was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center and later transported to University Medical Center in Las Vegas with life threatening injuries.  Alcohol and speed were determined to have been contributing factors in the one vehicle crash.  The investigation is ongoing.

"None of this is really surprising to us at CAT, in March of 2009 he was arrested with a group of six others for home invasions. And he was arrested again July of 2010 for the same thing. One of the defendants was sentenced to 240 years. Liewer had 36 counts and then 54 counts against him in 2010. But yet only spent a short time in prison...."

ATV Rollover near Devil’s Dip in Kingman
By SAR volunteers
 
KINGMAN – There are many challenging jeep roads in the Hualapai Mountains. According to Luis Vega, SAR Field Commander, one of these roads takes off from Hualapai Mountain Road at what is locally known as Devil’s Dip and climbs to the top of the ridge before dropping to DW Ranch Road. On a recent April Sunday, a couple out for a ride on their ATV, attempted to reach the top of the ridge when their ATV flipped backwards on a steep portion of the road.
Although both riders suffered injuries, the male rider was able to drive the damaged ATV to Hualapai Mountain Road for help.
Pinion Pine Fire Department, AMR ambulance, MCSO deputies and MCSO Search and Rescue (SAR) volunteers responded to the Devil’s Dip area. Because the road climbing to the ridge is steep, rocky and difficult, emergency vehicles were not able to reach the accident site. SAR volunteers used a Jeep and UTV Razor to transport medical personnel and their equipment to the injured female.
Due to the nature of her injuries and the steep terrain, it was deemed too risky to carry the patient to flatter ground or transport her in a vehicle. The decision was made to transport her using DPS Ranger 42 helicopter using a short-haul maneuver; transporting the patient and rescuer hanging from a rope attached to the bottom of the helicopter.
SAR volunteers assisted DPS in preparing the helicopter for short-haul and a SAR Technical Rope Technician (TRT) got ready while medical personnel prepared the patient for the flight to the waiting ambulance.
The helicopter set the patient and the rescuer down on Hualapai Mountain Road where she was placed in the ambulance and taken to Kingman Regional Medical Center.
Mohave County Sheriff’s Office reminds ATV riders to enjoy the outdoors safely by following the manufactures recommendations when riding ATVs. Do not ride double on ATVs intended for a single rider, wear safety equipment such as helmets, eye protection and gloves and know your capabilities. Attempting to drive roads that are beyond a rider’s ability is a recipe for injury.

**Reminder of Kingman Police Department Program and Safety Tips**
Given the rise and popularity of online purchasing via websites such as Craigslist, social media garage sales, and other sites, the Kingman Police Department announces a new program to hopefully enhance safety during the transaction. The department recommends using the front parking lot located at 2730 E. Andy Devine Ave. to meet and conduct their transaction. The front parking lot is now video monitored 24 hours a day. While the department is not staffed 24 hours a day, the high visibility and location on Andy Devine coupled with video monitoring will deter those that have ill intent for the transaction.

Similar programs have started across the country and experienced great success. The program concept was provided to the department by one of our Facebook followers. The Kingman Police Department welcomes your input and suggestions on how we can better serve and protect the residents of our community. Join us on Facebook, Twitter, or our webpage at www.kingmanpolice.com

With the approach of the summer season we also want to remind our residents of several safety tips.

Always lock your car-“LOCK IT OR LOSE IT!”
Always park in a well-lit area and DO NOT leave valuables or packages in the car.
ALWAYS BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS!
During warmer weather, DO NOT start and leave a running vehicle unattended.
DO NOT leave children or pets in a car.
Have PLENTY of WATER with you in case your vehicle overheats.
And remember ALWAYS if you SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!

Missing Kids Readiness Project

The Bullhead City Police Department is now a member of a premier program designed to protect children.

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) developed the Missing Kids Readiness Project to promote best practices for responding to calls of missing, abducted and sexually exploited children. 9-1-1 call centers and law enforcement agencies are recognized for meeting essential training and policy elements demonstrating preparedness for responding to a missing child incident.

“Approximately a year and a half ago, the police department set a goal to be very well prepared for handling cases of missing children. One of the most important things a police department can do is facilitate reuniting missing children with their families,” said Bullhead City Police Chief Brian Williamson. “In order to accomplish this goal, we knew we had to modify our policies, procedures, and training. We decided the best way to do this would be to become members of the NCMEC Missing Kids Readiness Project.”

To meet the requirements of the Project, the Bullhead City Police Department worked with NCMEC on their missing child policy to ensure it met the critical elements of NCMEC’s model policy for law enforcement agencies. In addition, Chief Williamson attended the Missing Children Seminar for Chief Executives held at NCMEC headquarters in Alexandria, VA and ensured all first responders and front line supervisors completed the necessary classroom and/or online training offered through NCMEC. By making this commitment of training and preparedness, the Bullhead City Police Department is communicating to its citizens and families that protecting the lives and safety of their children is a top priority.

Armed with the information, knowledge and operational resources gained through meeting the project criteria, the Bullhead City Police Department is now positioned to respond more quickly, comprehensively, and effectively when a child’s life may be at stake.

“I am very proud of the members of the police department for all of the hard work and dedication they put in to complete this project,” said Chief Williamson. “I would like to give special recognition to Senior Emergency Services Dispatcher JoLynn McCabe for the phenomenal job she did managing this very important project.”

Not only is the Bullhead City Police Department now one of just thirty-one law enforcement agencies in the United States who have achieved this status, but they are also the second within the state of Arizona.

The backpacker later identified as Sean Taylor, 39, of Las Vegas, Nevada had camped Sunday (2/14) night on Mt. Tipton and was attempting to descend a steep and rugged canyon toward the trailhead when he fell and was injured. He could not continue and called for help. Search & Rescue members arrived on scene and assisted DPS configure the helicopter for a short-haul; extraction by a rope hanging below the helicopter. The plan was to rappel a Search & Rescue technical rope technician (TRT) to Taylor, prepare him to connect to the rope and do a short-haul extraction. Unfortunately, the sun was going down rapidly and there was insufficient light to complete the short-haul maneuver. A Search & Rescue TRT rappelled from the helicopter to Taylor and decided to attempt hiking and climbing down the steep canyon wall to the wash bottom and find a spot where the helicopter could do a one-skid technique to load Taylor. The canyon where Taylor was injured was too narrow and had too many trees to safely attempt a helicopter landing. After about four hours of descending the wash, Taylor and the rescuer reached a part of the canyon where there was sufficient room for the helicopter to hover above a large rock. Taylor and the rescuer performed a hover-ingress; entering the helicopter while it was still in the air. Taylor was flown to Kingman Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Recently....

 a business owner lost $1,000.00 to a scammer. It goes like this: The business owner got a call from a 602 number late on a Friday. They said they were with Unisource and there was a balance owed of 1000 dollars, and that they would have to shut the power off in 1 hour if it was not paid by getting a Green Dot money pak at Wal-Mart and calling them back with the pin numbers. The business owner panicked because they would have to close for the weekend if the power went off. The owner assumed the last check to Unisource did not clear or there was some other problem and did not verify with Unisource till it was too late.
