Beware of Robocall Scams

We are receiving complaints about robocalls from Denton, TX number (940) 304-0981 stating that your social security number has been compromised and is being used fraudulently.

This is a SCAM…Remember the IRS will NEVER call you, text you or email you regarding your Social Security Number.

With the new tax season approaching, please be aware of these scams and NEVER return these types of phone calls or give anyone your social security and personal information over the phone!

Thank You Law Enforcement Officers!

Thank you to all of our law enforcement brothers and sisters for what you do every day to serve and protect the communities throughout our great country! A special THANK YOU to the Gerrish Twp. Police Officers…you truly are appreciated!

Thank You & Happy New Year!

With the end of 2019 and the beginning of a new year, we would like to thank all of those individuals, businesses, organizations and residents that supported our department and our mission throughout 2019.

A huge “thank you” to all of the generous donors that contributed to our 18th Annual Shop-With-A-Cop Program in December. We were able to sponsor 8 local families including 23 children and 14 adults! This and many of our programs would not be successful without the support of our wonderful community!

We would also like to recognize and thank our non-profit community group ACT NOW, for without their partnership we would not be able to give support back to our community!

We wish you all a new decade full of good health, peace, happiness, prosperity and great adventures!!
