This morning, we received a call from a citizen who wanted to thank one of our deputies after witnessing an act of kindness. She was in the southern part of Sedgwick County and saw a deputy stop his car, get out and help a little box turtle cross the road. She was particularly thankful she had her young daughter in the car and used that moment to assure her that "people do care about things that are smaller than them." We have identified the deputy as Dep. Ben Romero and have noted the good deed in his file. We enjoy hearing the good things that people see our deputies doing and thank you to the woman who took the time to call today.
******Hit & Run Update***** Thanks to our Facebook friends and other members of the public we were able to identify the vehicle that we believe was involved in the hit & run Saturday night near Haysville. This afternoon, deputies arrested a suspect in the case. Thanks for your help, everyone!!!
The missing juvenile from south of Haysville has been located. We want to thank the public for their assistance.
Sheriff's Investigations has received several phone calls from citizens who have complained of getting phone calls from a person who identified themselves as a Sheriff Office employee and telling the citizens that they owed back taxes. The citizen is threatened that if they do not pay their taxes right away with a gift card or reloadable debit card that the SO will come out immediately to arrest them. This is a false call. The Sheriff's Office does not demand tax payments from citizens over the phone. The number listed on the caller ID was 316-660-5300 which is the actual phone number for Sheriff's Investigations but has been "spoofed" by these scammers. Spoofing is when a person changes their caller id "signature" in order to hide who they are or convince someone they are who they are not. When in doubt about the validity of a phone call or request from the Sheriff's Office, contact 660-3900 to verify that person's identity. DO NOT pay any fees or taxes to the Sheriff's Office over the phone.
The “National Take Back” initiative, sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in cooperation with the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office will take place on Saturday, September 27, 2014. The Sheriff’s Office will staff three drop off locations between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The locations for citizens to drop off medications are: the Sedgwick County Zoo at 5555 W. Zoo Blvd., Household Hazardous Waste Center at 801 W. Stillwell Oaklawn Activity Center located at 4904 S. Clifton. Any expired, unwanted prescriptions or over the counter medications may be taken to one of these locations. Syringes and injectables will not be accepted. The rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are increasing at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Many citizens may not be aware of how to properly dispose of their unused medications. Flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away creates a potential safety and health hazard. The “National Take Back” initiative offers the citizens of Sedgwick County a safe way to dispose of these medications.
