SCAM ALERT 2020

Aside

! ! ! SCAM WARNING ! ! ! The latest method being reported for 2020

The Sheriff’s Office will NEVER call you and ask you to pay ANYTHING over the telephone to resolve any legal document, warrant or other issue. 

Scammers are at it again, and are now using our address of 1098 Monmouth Street and our main telephone number. The current complaint we have heard about is that the caller will state that your Social Security Number has been compromised and payment must be made via the caller for the Sheriff to resolve the issue. Most people should know that the Sheriff’s Office has nothing to do with correcting such an issue, but the callers are sometimes very convincing.

Remember, if in doubt, hangup and call the Sheriff’s Office during regular business hours to confirm if the situation is real. NEVER give out your social security number, date of birth or personal information unless you dialed our office yourself.

Sheriff’s Office does not collect money in anyway to make legal documents or warrants go away. Be alert! Be suspicious when you are receiving the call.

Lastly, our Offices are only open from 8 AM to 4 PM so if you are receiving a call after those hours, it is definitely not us.

Last Day To Pay County Property Taxes

Aside

December 31st, 2019 is the last day to pay County Property Taxes before late fees apply.

Although our office is closed on December 31st as it is every year, you can still pay your taxes without a late fee by postmarking it on or before the 31st, or you can pay them at any Heritage Bank in the area. Heritage is open on New Year’s Eve.

Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 10, Cops and Kids 2019

Sheriff Mike Jansen and Deputy George Schreiner were proud to participate in this year’s Cops and Kids program that our FOP Lodge provides every year. 55 total children we provided a hot breakfast, then shopping with law enforcement officers from all over Campbell County. There were photos with Santa, a wrapping party and lunch afterwards. All in all a great day was had by all.

2019 Campbell County Citizen’s Academy

Aside

It was my privilege to present information about the Sheriff’s Office at this year’s Campbell County Citizen’s Academy. Each year, up to 30 people participate in the academy which teaches citizen’s all facets of our County Government and County Departments and Elected Offices.

Donation Letter

Aside

Some Campbell County Residents may receive a donation letter for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Association Boys and Girls Ranch.

If you received a letter in my name asking for a donation for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Association Boys and Girls Ranch, this is a legitimate letter that I approved to be sent out. The Boys and Girls Ranch is a wonderful program and we send a group of boys and a group of girls from our county each summer. The children pay nothing to go to the Ranch.

Below is a copy of the letter that was mailed out. Clicking on it will allow it to be seen full size.

I thank you for your consideration.

A Legend Retires

Aside

John “Johnny” Sayers Retires

Friday, June 28th, 2019 will be the last day on the job for a Campbell County Law Enforcement Legend. John Sayers started in Law Enforcement in 1957. He retired from Silver Grove Police Department as Chief in 2009. Within a day he was back on the job at the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office as a sworn Court Security Deputy. John soon become the face of the Sheriff’s Office greeting people as they entered the court house each day. Our research shows he is the longest serving law enforcement officer in Kentucky, and further research reveals he may be the longest in the nation. We are having Guinness World Records look into it.

Although we celebrated Johnny’s career today, as of this posting, you have one day left to see Johnny on the job and wish him a great retirement. He will be on post one last day, Friday, June 28th, 2019, 8 until Noon. If you can come down and wish him well, he would surely enjoy it.
