I AM AMAZED HOW THESE TYPE OF PEOPLE JUST KEEP GOING ON AND ON?

 

I recently found out that we have a "3 strikes" rule, signed into effect April of 2006, I have yet to hear of it being applied to anyone here......wonder why.

 

Crimes that trigger the three-strikes rule include murder, drive-by shooting, kidnapping, sexual assault, child molestation, first-degree burglary of an occupied home, arson of an occupied structure, armed robbery, terrorism and child prostitution.

 

To be subject to the three-strikes rule in Arizona, offenders must be convicted of committing, attempting or conspiring to commit three violent or aggravated felonies on separate occasions. And the law is also applicable to people who have been convicted of similar violent offenses in other states.

 

"Arizona's three-strikes law was created to go after the worst of the worst," County Attorney Andrew Thomas said Wednesday in a prepared statement. "We hope to use this new statute to lock up these violent career criminals once and for all.". 

 

 

 

BELOW ARE THE ARRESTS AND NEWS FROM THE SHERIFF AND POLICE DEPT FROM APRIL 4TH 2007.  THE INCIDENT REPORT FOR THIS PERIOD IS UNKNOWN AT THIS DATE, HOWEVER IF THEY ONLY ARREST 10% OF THE PEOPLE WHO COMMIT THE CRIMES, IMAGINE HOW MANY THEFTS AND OTHER INCIDENCES WE HAVE PER MONTH IN MOHAVE COUNTY...............

On January 9th, 2015, the FBINAA and partnering organizations in support of law enforcement officers nationwide will promote a National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.).

 In light of recent negativity directed toward law enforcement nationally, there is a need to show law enforcement officers that our citizens recognize the difficult and sometimes impossible career they have chosen, in public service to us all.

 Can you imagine going to work each day and wondering if you'll survive your shift and see your family that night? Most people can't. But in law enforcement, this is a fact of life. Each day 780,000 police officers across our country put a badge on and go to work knowing they may face extremely dangerous situations. Yet, they go to work anyway. Being a law enforcement officer is not just a job, it is a calling. The pay is low, the hours can be terrible, and there is sometimes little appreciation for what you do. Yet, they do it anyway.

What the public doesn't see is the toll law enforcement takes to keep our communities safe. On average, between 105 and 203 officers die in the line of duty each year, 50,000 officers are assaulted in the line of duty each year, 14,000 officers are injured in the line of duty each year, and over 300 officers commit suicide each year. There is no other profession in the world, except possibly the military, where you will find these kinds of statistics.

 Being a law enforcement officer truly is an impossible job. You must be professional, courteous, caring and yet be ready to protect the public at all times. You must be prepared to make life and death decisions in a moment's notice. You take an amazing amount of abuse at times, but have to view this abuse as just "part of the job." You do not have the liberty to express your emotions during many situations.

 Law enforcement officers play such an integral part in our society. Without law enforcement officers, chaos would reign. Have you ever thought about what you would do if you were in trouble - a car accident, a home invasion, an assault - and you did not have someone to call for help? No matter how much abuse law enforcement takes, they continue to do their job, and do it well. They are the guardians of our way of life and they deserve our support.

 On January 9th, we call our nation's citizens to action in support of law enforcement. Those citizens who appreciate law enforcement and are discouraged about the negative attention being given to law enforcement are encouraged take time on Friday, January 9th to show their support.

 Our citizens can show their support in a number of ways:

 * Change your profile picture on social media to the image at the beginning of this email

 * See a police officer? Thank a police officer

* Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement

* Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency

 * Share a positive story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media

 * Ask children in your community to write letters in support of law enforcement

 * Participate in Project Blue Light and proudly display your blue light in support of law enforcement

* Organize an event or a rally in support of your law enforcement officers

 * Advertise your support through local media outlets/billboards

* Post the public service announcement supplied by C.O.P.S. to your law enforcement's webpage or social media pages

All of our partnering organizations welcome media outlets to cover this nationwide campaign in support of law enforcement. As a leader from a supporting agency, please make someone available for interviews on the morning of January 9th, 2015. Sara Slone at the National C.O.P.S. office will be given as a contact to set up these interviews at (573) 346-4911.

 Today, Mohave County Sheriff

announced that he will return the Mine Resistant Armored Patrol vehicle (MRAP) which recently became the point of controversy. 

            The MRAP originally requested over two years ago was not received and in its place this much larger unit was received.  Never put into use due to its size, Sheriff McCabe requested it be returned for the smaller unit that was originally requested. 

            The Sheriff was recently advised the likelihood of that happening was slim to none.  Therefore, the unit will be returned to the military.  Still believing that an armored car is a viable piece of equipment; staff will research acquiring a civilian made armored car. 

Personally, we think they should keep it...

Public Beware of Fictitious Invoices

The Lake Havasu City Police Department and the Lake Havasu City Fire Department would like to warn the community about a recent scam that has surfaced in nearby communities that has, to date, only been focused on businesses. 

 The scam is designed around a fictitious contractor, RMZ Fire Safety, who sent false invoices to various businesses, primarily in the Las Vegas and Southern California areas, charging the business for a service that has not been provided. The false invoices identify the fictitious charge as being for “Annual State Required Fire Safety Equipment Inspection, Test, and Certification.”

 Investigators from the Nevada State Fire Marshal Division, of the Nevada Department of Public Safety, have been actively working on identifying individuals associated with this fictitious contractor and wanted to provide nearby jurisdictions warning to avoid becoming a victim to this scam.

If anyone has been a victim or has received a fictitious invoice related to this scam are encouraged to contact the Lake Havasu City Police Department.  Citizens may also contact Lake Havasu City Fire Department Fire Marshal, Chip Shilosky, at 928-854-0749 if you have any questions or concerns.

Police Involved Shooting Update

 The Mohave County Attorney’s Office, after review of the Kingman Police Department’s investigation of the officer-involved shooting of Justin Roady that occurred on November 23, 2014, has concluded that the actions of the three officers were justified and declined to bring any charges against the officers involved.  

 The analysis of the officers’ actions consists of comparing their actions against Arizona statutes related to the use of deadly force. Under Arizona statutes, a person is justified in using deadly force to protect themselves or a third party if a reasonable person believes that deadly force was immediately necessary to protect himself or a third party against the other’s use of, or attempted use of, unlawful deadly physical force.

This media release is in response to a recent, yet reoccurring, inquiry about

equipment obtained by the MCSO through the Military 1033 program; particularly an

armored vehicle known as a Mine Resistant Armored Patrol vehicle or MRAP. The

purpose of the equipment obtained through the Military 1033 program is to obtain

property that can and/or may be used by the MCSO to fulfill its constitutional and

statutory duties. Many items would never be obtainable given their costs without the

Military 1033 program as Mohave County, like other counties, has limited resources to

acquire public safety equipment. Many of the items that are obtained have to be

adapted to MCSO’s purposes. It is possible that some of the items may never be

utilized by the MCSO and I will not utilize the equipment for military purposes.

All items obtained through the Military 1033 program, by the MCSO, were

obtained with the protection of lives and property, within Mohave County, in mind,

similar to purchases for other law enforcement equipment. The cost of maintenance and

upkeep are concerns for all equipment of the MCSO, regardless of whether it came

from the Military 1033 program or not and such costs are and were considered.

As to the MRAP, it is anticipated that the vehicle may be used for rescue and

other life-saving operations including extracting victims and/or wounded officers in

active-shooter situations that unfortunately can occur at schools, the work-place, and

other public gatherings. The MRAP may also be useful in standoff situations or even

rescues in natural disasters. One does not have to look too deep to know that Mohave

County has its share of standoff/ barricade situations and also natural disasters like

flash flooding. Additionally and unfortunately one does not have to search too far back

to know that school and work place shooting violence can occur in very remote and

unsuspecting communities.

This release includes photos of the MRAP, an inventory list that includes all the

equipment valuable or sensitive enough to require annual inventory and reporting to the

Department of Defense, and a copy of the form outlining the use of said equipment.

There are some who will never be satisfied with any response the MCSO can give

regarding equipment obtained through the Military 1033 program and they are certainly

entitled to their opinion. However, as Sheriff of Mohave County, I stand by my record

and the record of the MCSO in fulfilling my constitutional and statutory duties under

Arizona law and our proven record of protecting the lives and property of Mohave

County residents to the best of our ability with the resources available to us. Any

suggestion that the MCSO has or will misuse any Military 1033 program equipment,

simply because of the equipment’s origin, is unfounded and baseless.

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.
