PD News: Summer Begins

As we roll into summer we are beginning to see a steady increase in Off Highway Recreational Vehicle (O.H.R.V.) and All Terrain Vehicle (A.T.V.) use.  There are some things to consider before hitting the trails. Fish and Game strongly recommends that all operators complete a Safety Education Class. The class is a requirement for operators 12 years or older that do not hold a valid motor vehicle license. For more information about attending a class contact Fish and Game 603-271-3129 or go to www.ride.nh.gov  for class schedules. Remember, all riders under the age of 18 MUST wear helmets at all times.

Bradford Police Drug Take Back Day April 28, 2012

Tomorrow the Bradford Police Department will participate in the Drug Enforcement Administration drug take back day. On April 28, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. the station will be open and will have a receptacle that the public can use to dispose of no longer used or out dated medications. The drugs will then be turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration for proper disposal. One of the latest concerns is that these drugs are being flushed down toilets and then finding their way into the water table and water supplies. Thank you all!!

Mail Fraud Scam

  The check is a forgery and the scam is you deposit $3,900.00 in your account and then send the agent $1,900.00. The check is a forgery and will not clear but your check will have been cashed and your bank will be looking for you to make up $1,900.00. If it sounds to good to be true it is.

Warning Medicare Recipients

WARNING – MEDICARE RECIPIENTS SCAM ALERT: This serious scam is now being reported from Maine to Florida. Medicare beneficiaries have received phone calls from the “WalMart Promotion Center,” stating that they had just won a $1,000 WalMart gift card. All they needed to do to claim their prize was to confirm their name, e-mail address, and cell phone#.  Also, they said that they were out of gift cards but, with a bank account number they would be able to deposit the $1,000 into their account today. Never give out confidential information.  If you have a question please call your local Police Department.  Remember if it sounds to good to be true.

Police Department Open House

  Bradford Police Had their open house today and gave 30 ID Kits to parents and children. We were visited by 30 children and over one hundred adults. Along with the ID Kits we were able to give out gun locks, key chains and reflectors. It was a very good and positive day. Thank you to Dawn Rich and Martha Barron from the Friends of The Bradford Area Community Center for attending and helping with the ID Kits. Deb Flinkstrom and Margaret Raymond attended on behalf of the Bradford Parks and Recreation Committee. Special thank you the officers and members of the Bradford Police Association who volunteered their Saturday to make this such a successful event.
