Sheriff's Calls Wonder Valley

I am very happy to see that Wonder Valley community members seem to be reporting more crimes to the Sheriff's Department. I went on a Ride-Along yesterday and learned that Landers is currently receiving a lot of attention from the Sheriff's Department because they have been reporting a lot of burglaries. I don't know that it's because they're having more burglaries but reporting more burglaries is making a difference for them.

One interesting thing I learned yesterday is this: you can call 911 and ask for a deputy to call you back. When they do you can report your incident and the deputy will document it and provide you with an incident number. Be sure to ask for one if one is not offered. These calls will not be counted in the monthly crime stats but they are noted in Sheriff's Department briefings. Reporting INCIDENTS may be something that those of you who do NOT want a Sheriff's car seen at your house, for whatever reason, CAN do.

I'd also encourage as many people as possible to sign up for Ride-Alongs. That way you will be fully informed regarding the services of the Sheriff's Department and MORE Wonder Valley residents will have personal relationships with Deputies, which can only help our community.
