Prom PROMise awards held for Culpeper County High School

Press Release from Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office:

Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office has encouraged Eastern View and Culpeper County High School students to behave responsibly before, during, and after prom and to be alcohol- and drug-free on prom night, and students who signed the “my 2015 PROMise” pledge to do so were entered into a raffle at their respective schools to win a free limousine for prom night courtesy of Sheriff Scott Jenkins and CCSO.

At the May 7 CCHS prom assembly, SRO Sergeant Joe Curtis spoke about the “my PROMise” initiative, Sheriff Jenkins introduced a video of the EVHS mock crash, and the guest speaker was Mrs. Kim McKiernan, who started a local MADD chapter that meets in Rappahannock County and includes Culpeper.

CCHS student Dalton McKinley won a night in a stretch Hummer limousine with 15 of his friends.

Press release from Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office:

Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office continues to receive reports of IRS scam operations, and Sheriff Scott Jenkins is warning residents that there is a new element to the scam: “swatting.”

The crime of “swatting” is making a hoax call to 9-1-1 to draw a response from law enforcement, usually a SWAT team, and CCSO had an incident of it this weekend, when deputies responded to an unfounded report of a person with a gun in the 14600 block of Carrico Mills Road at about 6 p.m. Friday, May 15, 2015. When deputies arrived, they found that the resident did not call 911, but they had received an IRS scam call in which the caller told them that they owed thousands of dollars to be brought immediately to a Washington, DC address or they would be arrested. When the victim told the caller they would borrow the money from their Police Officer friend, the call disconnected, and the caller sought revenge by reporting a person with a gun at the victim’s residence.

Residents are encouraged to report IRS scam calls to Culpeper dispatch (540.727.7900) so that dispatchers can give the additional information to responding deputies if they receive a subsequent “swatting” call.

As a reminder, the IRS reports that they will NEVER:
– call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill,
– demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe,
– require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card,
– ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone, or
– threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.

And:
Caller ID “spoofing,” which allows the caller to adopt a fake phone number and/or name, may be another element of the operation, so residents should not automatically assume the information displayed in their caller ID accurately identifies the caller.
