WeTip is a private contractor that takes anonymous crime information and forwards it to the appropriate Law Enforcement agency.  They do not want to know your identity.

They do not want to know who you are, to insure that you remain anonymous.   You can also report a tip on line.  Click here.

A reward is offered if the information leads to an arrest and WeTip has a method to pay the reward and still keep the caller anonymous.

FRAUD and SCAMS

If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is! 

When you get a notice by mail, email or telephone that you won millions of dollars your heart will flutter and you will think your prayers have been answered. While your guard is down the “Scammer” uses that against you to convince you to do things you should not do. Like:

bulletGiving out personal identification information (to confirm you are the “correct” winner)
bulletGiving out bank/checking or credit card information (to allow the lottery company to “deposit” your winnings)
bulletPaying the “taxes and handling charges” before receiving your winnings.

Many people each year let their guard down and continue to support the criminals making their living committing scams. 

What can I do? 

bulletStop and take a deep breath! Do not let your emotions cloud your good judgment.
bulletTalk with a family member or friend about the “winnings” you have “won”.
bulletContact your Bank, Credit Card Company or Police Department about your “winnings”.
bulletUse the Internet, (get a friend to help or go to the Library), and check for information about scams. (You can start by looking here, http://www.consumerfraudreporting.org/identify.php )
bulletWarn your family, friends and neighbors about scams and encourage caution

“WHEN IT SOUNDS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE…”

 

PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR SAVINGS:

Your bank WILL NOT call and ask for your personal information, ask you for your debit card, ask for your bank account number or ask you to withdraw any money!!!

VERIFY THE CALLER

If you receive a call from a relative or someone representing a relative needing you to send them money because of an emergency situation, DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY WITHOUT FIRST VERIFYING THE INFORMATION.  Contact someone who can verify that this person is experiencing an emergency.  If in Doubt, contact the police first

Before following any instructions given to you by the caller:

1.  If you have caller ID, write down the telephone number.

2. Hang up, and then immediately pick up the phone again and dial *57 (star 57).  This will record the last incoming telephone number.
    Note the date and time. (There may be a $5.00 fee charged for the *57 service by the phone carrier.)

3. To contact your bank to verify the caller:  Use only the telephone number provided on your bank statement, not provided
     by the caller.

4. Use your personal contact numbers to verify the emergency information.  Do not use any telephone numbers the caller may
    give you to verify information.

 

IF YOU FEEL YOU HAVE BEEN THE VICTIM OF A FRAUD CALL THE EAGAR POLICE AT 928-333-4127
 

Save Our Seniors (SOS) Program

In many towns and communities such as ours, there are elderly or disabled people who live alone.  The Eagar and Springerville Police are concerned about these people and would like to do something to help.  We have a program known as  "Save Our Seniors” (S.O.S.). 

The White Mountain Regional Medical Center Hospital Auxiliary and the Apache County Communications Dispatch Center are
our partners in the  Save Our Seniors (S.O.S.) Program.
The White Mountain Regional Medical Center Hospital Auxiliary answer the S.O.S. calls during the weekdays and the Apache County Communications Dispatch Center answer the calls on the weekends and Holidays. If they do not receive a daily call from the S.O.S. participant the Police Department will go to their house to check their welfare.

The intent of this program is to make sure that all elderly or disabled people have someone contact them daily to make sure they are O.K.  There is no cost to participate in the S.O.S. Program. The persons wanting to participate have to complete an application with the Police Department. If you live in Eagar you give the completed form to the Eagar Police Department. (In you live in Springerville you give the completed form to the Springerville Police Department.)

Application forms for the Security Watch program are available at the Eagar Police Department during business hours, or you can down-load a copy of the application here. (Click here for application)

 

The Eagar Police Department is investigating several "Opportunity Thefts" from vehicles. An unknown person or persons is entering unlocked vehicles while they are parked at the owner's residence. Any item of value is taken from the vehicle.

 To avoid becoming a victim the Eagar Police Department would like to offer the following suggestions. 
     
·     Lock your car (Especially in the evening). Eagar is a small town and things like this did not use to happen
           but things change. If you want to avoid having items taken from your car, lock it up.

·     Always remove your keys from the vehicle. It will make it harder to steal and you'll never lock your keys in the  car.

·         Park your car in a lighted area. People who break the law do not like to be seen. The dark and secluded areas
provide great opportunities for thieves.

·         Remove items of value from your car. Do not leave purses, wallets, guns, cameras or other items of value in your vehicle.

·         If you see something suspicious report it. You might be helping your neighbors or yourself. Many crimes have been solved by a tip from a concerned citizen.

 

The Eagar Police Department would like you to report any suspicious activity in your neighborhoods. The fastest way to get the information to a police officer is to call 911, or 333-4000. If you wait until the next day or later to give the information the possibility of catching the suspect decreases.

APACHE COUNTY MULTI-JURISDICTIONAL
HAZARD MITIGATION PLANNING PROJECT
 

Click Here for the latest edition of Mitigation Outlook Newsletter
 

The following cities, towns, and Indian tribes are currently participating with Apache County to develop a multi-jurisdictional all-hazard
mitigation plan for each community:
 

·         St. Johns

·         Springerville

·         Eagar

 

 What is hazard mitigation planning?

Some Definitions…

HAZARD – A source of potential danger or adverse condition. Hazards include both natural (floods, earthquakes, winter storms,
landslides, wildfires, drought, etc.) and human-caused events (hazardous materials, dam/levee failure, terrorism, transportation
accidents, biological, etc.).

HAZARD MITIGATION – Any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from hazards.

PLANNING – the act or process of making or carrying out plans; specifically, the establishment of goals, policies, and procedures for a
social or economic unit.
 

Why are the communities doing this hazard mitigation planning?

The process of hazard mitigation planning is a very important part of any community’s planning program for sustainability.  For most
communities, mitigation programs for hazards that occur infrequently are usually funded and initiated on a post-disaster basis with
solutions that are generally reactionary to the most recent event.  This form of hazard mitigation programming is typically more costly,
both in property and human losses, on a long-term basis.  Congress recognized the deficiency of the current system and in October 2000,
passed the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2K).  The overall purpose of DMA2K was to establish a national program for pre-disaster
mitigation, streamline administration of disaster relief at both the federal and state levels, and control federal costs of disaster assistance. 
In general, the DMA2K legislation requires all local, county, and tribal governments to develop a hazard mitigation plan for their respective
community in order to be eligible to receive federal pre- and post-disaster mitigation assistance funds.  Each community’s hazard mitigation
plan must be submitted to and approved by the State of Arizona and FEMA.  The deadline for obtaining that approval is November 1, 2004. 

How will the plan be developed?

A planning team comprised of planning and engineering representatives from the cities, tribes, and county, as well as public utilities,
hospitals, police, fire and sheriff’s departments, and other public and private entities, will be meeting regularly to work through a hazard
mitigation planning process that involves the following tasks:
 

Ø      Identify hazards that may impact or have impacted the community

Ø      Develop a profile of the most relevant hazard events

Ø      Assess Vulnerability to Hazards

Ø      Assess the communities capability to mitigate hazards
 

Ø      Establish hazard mitigation activity goals and objectives for the community

Ø      Develop hazard mitigation actions and/or projects

Ø      Develop an implementation strategy for the plan

Ø      Write and officially adopt plan

How can I get involved or obtain more information?
