Sheriff's Office Warns of SCAMS Operating in Area 

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office and Spokane Valley Police Department continue to receive reports from our citizens regarding aggressive phone SCAMS. The fraudulent stories change but the motives are always the same: They want your money!  Don’t be a victim, always verify.
Currently, we are receiving reports these swindlers are stating they are from the IRS, the Social Security Administration (SSA), Medicare, law enforcement or some other government agency. They are extremely aggressive and demand citizens go and purchase prepaid credit cards and immediately provide them with the personal identification number (PIN). Once someone does this, the money is gone.
We would like to remind everyone, government agencies will not call you demanding immediate payment by prepaid credit card or any other method. We urge everyone to share this information with their family and friends to protect them from possibly becoming a victim of these SCAMS.
If you receive a call you believe is a scam, you can file a complaint online with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the IRS, the Internet Crime Complain Center (IC3), or call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.    


ALERT Spokane–The Spokane County Emergency Notification System

A Public Safety Message from the Spokane County Commissioners

How will you be notified if there’s an emergency in your neighborhood? Through ALERT Spokane – a Spokane County emergency notification system! 

ALERT Spokane has been in operation since 2010, and is used to inform citizens about emergencies in their area.  The ALERT Spokane system can be activated by law enforcement, fire service, water districts, etc. Once activated, a recorded message is sent to landline telephones with information about the emergency and what actions to take. For example, if there’s a wild fire in your area, you might be told to evacuate.

It’s important to note that the recorded message will be sent to landline telephones in the affected area. If you have discontinued your landline telephone service and are relying on a cell phone or VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone, you will not receive an emergency message from ALERT Spokane – unless you register your cell phone in the system! Even if you still have a landline telephone, it’s a good idea to register your cell phone with ALERT Spokane.

In the interest of public safety, the Spokane County Board of Commissioners is urging the public to register their cell phones and VoIP phones (Comcast, Vonage, XO Communications, etc.) with ALERT Spokane. It’s easy to do. Just go to www.alertspokane.org and enter the information. You can also register more than one cell or VoIP phone number.

Be informed – stay safe – register with ALERT Spokane TODAY at www.alertspokane.org!


I-502 Implementation

Initiative 502 (I-502) was approved by Washington State voters on November 6, 2012.

I-502 removes the legal prohibitions against producing, processing, and selling marijuana, subject to licensing and regulation by the Liquor Control Board; allows limited possession of marijuana by persons aged twenty-one and over; and imposes 25% excise taxes on wholesale and retail sales of marijuana, earmarking revenue for purposes that include substance-abuse prevention, research, education, and healthcare.

The implementation of I-502 is the responsibility of the Washington State Liquor Control Board. Over the course of implementation, the Liquor Control Board's I-502 Implementation site provides the most current information. Please be sure to check the site often for updates.
