As the weather becomes more pleasant and people are out and about more the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office would like to take this time to encourage everyone to be aware of your surroundings and to be the eyes and ears of your community.  If you notice vehicles in your area that normally aren’t there and are acting strange, take a moment to get a vehicle description.  If you are able, get a license plate, vehicle color, make, model, how many doors, distinguishing features, etc. Call our office at 683-1020 and give us your location, the location of the vehicle, any information about the vehicle, and the behavior or actions of the vehicle or its occupants.  It may seem trivial or no big deal, but a report of a suspicious vehicle and its location can be entered into our data base here at the office and used to help establish leads in cases such as burglary, theft/stealing, property damage, drug activity and other criminal activity.
A friendly reminder for those with CCW Permits:  Please check the renewal dates on your CCW card.  Those that received their card from the License Bureau will need to check the upper right corner of their card for the expiration date.  The date of the CCW expiration and the expiration of the ID card doesn’t always match. All CCW initial applications require an appointment that can be set for you by phone, and CCW renewals can be done at any time.  Initial first time CCW’s are $100 which include your background check and fingerprints. A CCW renewal is $50.  Both are good for 5 years.  Any CCW payment made should be in the form of personal check, money order, or cashier’s check.  If you have any questions about CCW’s or their renewal please call us here at the office.
If you have information regarding a crime or any information on the locations of the above listed subjects you are encouraged to contact the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office at 417-683-1020.
