"I am Dave Cooke and the father of a son battling his heroin addiction.
I have been on this journey since 2009 and am all too familiar with the impact addiction has on a family. In the early stages of this experience I was nearly destroyed financially, professionally and personally. If it wasn’t for the successful achievement of a cycling challenge I gave myself – one hundred consecutive days, at least one hour a day – who knows where I would be. Today, I know my son’s story is not my story to tell nor is it my story. Rather, my story is about faith, love, and grace and how God guides me through the most difficult experiences to discover a place of peace, clarity and purpose. It is a powerful story and the one I am happy to share with you"

The motorhome is parked in the Zuni RV Park, in the 2800blk. of Airway Ave., in Kingman.  The motorhome is believed to have belonged to Glenn Franklin Jones, 59y.  Jones is believed to be responsible for several explosions in Panaca, NV Wednesday night. Jones, who is believed to have been killed in one of the explosions in NV, is to have been living in Kingman for the past several months.  A storage unit, believed to have belonged to Jones, is also located in the RV park.  This storage unit has not been cleared and is suspected to contain more IED material.  A mandatory evacuation has occurred for the southern section of the Zuni RV Park.  Those displaced by the evacuation have been directed to a Red Cross shelter that has been established at the Kingman High School on Bank St., in Kingman.  When EOD begins processing the storage unit the entire RV park will be subject to mandatory evacuation.  The evacuations are due to the extremely dangerous and volatile situation created by the presence of IEDs and IED making material. 

A voluntary evacuation is being recommended for anyone within the following perimeter:  Airway Ave. to the north, Rutherford St. to the West, N. Bank St to the East and Beverly Ave. to the South.

Jones’ green in color, 2007 Saturn 4dr, was located last night in the parking lot of the Avis Car Rental, 4200blk. of Stockton Hill Rd., in Kingman.  This vehicle was rendered safe this morning at about 6:00am.  Investigators located a piece of a IED device inside Jones’ vehicle.

** Independence Day Holiday DUI Detail **

The Kingman Police Department, in partnership with the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce, will be out this this weekend to apprehend those who choose to drive while impaired. The Kingman Police Department is able to provide enhanced DUI enforcement due to a grant awarded by the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. This grant helps to cover the costs associated with enhanced enforcement operations. The DUI details allow officers to be assigned the specific task of locating and arresting drivers suspected of DUI.

The goal of the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce is to provide deterrence to drivers who may choose to drive while impaired by drugs or alcohol. Alcohol is the most well-known substance associated with DUI; however, the Kingman Police Department has noticed a significant increase in DUI arrests due to prescription medications. It is important for drivers to understand that impairment due to prescribed medication is not just illegal, but just as dangerous and deadly. If arrested for a DUI offense the offender faces jail time, their vehicle will be impounded, their driver’s license suspended, and hefty fines.

If you observe a suspected impaired driver immediately call your local law enforcement agency, provide a good description of vehicle and driver, direction of travel, and if possible a license plate to assist us in removing the subject from the road. Don’t confront the individual, simply be a good witness and keep a safe distance. We all have to work together to prevent such tragedies from being repeated. The Kingman Police Department wishes everyone a safe Independence Day.

Remember “Drive Hammered, Get Nailed!”

REWARD

** Rash of Home and Vehicle Burglaries **

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.

ATV Rollover near Devil¡¯s Dip in Kingman

By SAR volunteers

 

KINGMAN ¨C 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.

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.

** Labor Day  Holiday DUI Enforcement **

The Western Arizona DUI Task Force will be out during the Labor Day holiday looking for impaired drivers.   The DUI task force is comprised of deputies from the Mohave County Sheriff¡¯s Office, troopers from AZ Department of Public Safety and officers with the Kingman Police Department.  The added DUI enforcement is made possible by a grant from the Governor¡¯s Officer of Highway Safety (GOHS).  Drivers are encouraged to take advantage of designated drivers.  Impaired drivers will be arrested and booked into jail; and their vehicle will be impounded for 30-days.  Don¡¯t drink and drive.  Impairment from prescribed medication is also a growing problem.  Using prescribed medication is not a defense to DUI.  Impairment from either is dangerous and illegal.


 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.

Unfortunately it was a scam.

 Unisource would never call you to do that, nor would any other utility company do that.  Call Law enforcement if you receive any such call.
