Warning! IRS phone scam

One of our local businesses told us that they received a call this morning from people identifying themselves as being from the IRS, telling them that if they didn’t call & pay a tax bill within 24 hours, that we would be arrested.  The return phone # they left is 775-410-3947.

These are scams, never pay over the phone or respond to this type of phone call, just hang up.  If you have any question whether you actually owe money, whether it is the IRS, power company, or any other organization just make the call directly to the organization in question after looking up the phone number.  Do not call any number a caller has provided to you, this is part of the scam, looking it up yourself is the only way you can be sure your calling a legitimate phone number.

Lax and the Law

School Resource Officer Sgt. Steve Manning recently finished the 11th year of “Lax and the Law” with students from Tyngsboro High School and Greater Lowell Technical High School.
On Thursday nights beginning January 11 and continuing thru March 15, both boys and girls lacrosse players from the two schools got together at the Tyngsboro Sports Center to practice their lacrosse skills before the upcoming spring season.  The final session ended with a pizza party.
We would like to thank Darryl Wickens and TSC (Tyngsboro Sports Center), for hosting this event and for their continued support of the Tyngsboro Police Department’s School Resource Officer Program.

Happy National Public Safety Telecommunicators’ Week!

This week is National Public Safety Telecommunicators’ Week!
The Tyngsborough Police would like to thank our Police/Fire/911 Communications Specialists (Dispatchers), for their outstanding service!
We appreciate their dedication, professionalism, the sacrifices they make, and the vital role they play behind the scenes for our agency.
Often their work isn’t seen by others, but our police department could not function without them and we are fortunate to have them in our family.
