Our Vice President, Secretary and I will be stepping down from the Board for various personal reasons and we will need at least three people to step up and fill these positions. It has been an honor to serve as President over the past 3 to 4 years but I need to devote more time to my family. Love you all and look forward to seeing you all at the meeting. :) M.J. Coffman

IMPORTANT UPDATE 1/8: We have been advised that in this particular case, the letter delivered to the citizen was legitimate related to maintenance contracted with their property management company. If you receive a letter requesting access to your property, we encourage you to verify the work with your property management company.

Scam Alert - A letter was delivered to residents claiming that a third party company will need access to their homes for water meter maintenance. The letter asks residents to leave their doors unlocked, deactivate their alarm systems, and crate their pets.

Virginia Beach Public Utilities urges residents to exercise caution. Water meters are located on the exterior of properties in Virginia Beach and the City will never request to enter a residence to perform maintenance on a meter.

Residents should report suspicious individuals to the Virginia Beach Police at 757-385-5000.

Note: the scammers are calling across the Nation...

SCAM ALERT: The FGPD main line has been spoofed!
We have received reports from around the USA advising that callers claiming to be from the Social Security Administration are using the Forest Grove Police main line phone number from which to make the calls.

The scam: Callers state that your Social Security Number has been involved in criminal activity and that an investigation is underway, a warrant may have been issued, and that you must pay to clear your good name. They may even have a 'badge number' or case number - this is a trick to make you think it's real.

THIS IS A SCAM! And a common one at that!

Remember: The SSA will NEVER call you directly, and any information about your account, including any fraudulent activity, will always be sent to you in the mail.

Beware of anyone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration, IRS, or any other government agency, and NEVER give out your SSN over the phone.

And this just goes to show that you can't always trust the Caller ID. Anyone can be spoofed, even your local police!

Just for the record, we always identify ourselves as the Forest Grove Police any time we call a citizen... If it's really from us, you'll know.

I cringe when I drive down the road and see a passenger sitting with their feet on the dash. Although, buckling their seatbelts would be a good first step to increasing their safety while riding in a vehicle.

Reward Now Increased to $25,000 for Tip that Leads to Arrest of WVA Man Wanted for Shooting Bluefield, VA Police Officer

Acting United States Marshal Richard Sellers (W/VA) and Bluefield Virginia Police Department Chief M. Shane Gunter announce the raising of the reward amount for information leading to the capture of fugitive Donquale "DJ" Gray.

The reward, previously offered in the combined amount of $10,000 by both the U.S. Marshals Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, in the amount of $5,000 per agency, and the independent reward, offered by the National Police Defense Foundation’s Safe Cops Program, of $10,000, has again been enhanced by the City of Bluefield, Virginia in the amount of $5,000.

The rewards offered by the two law enforcement agencies are offered for information which directly leads to the apprehension of fugitive Gray, as is the reward offered by the City of Bluefield, Virginia. The reward offered by the Safe Cop Program requires not only information leading to the arrest of Gray, but also criterion specifically set forth by the private organization which requires conviction.

Based upon the aforementioned, the total reward now stands at $25,000, if all criterion are met.

“As the fugitive investigation continues, we urge the public to provide us with information concerning Mr. Gray, as it is only a matter of time until he will likely harm another officer or citizen, ” stated Acting U.S. Marshal Richard Sellers. “Further, not only can the public utilize the previously noted email addresses, but also utilize the new U.S. Marshals Service TIPS app, which can be downloaded onto smartphones from their user stores. This is a direct channel to investigators and will allow confidentiality. We continue to urge Mr. Gray to surrender, and assure those aiding him, that they will face justice as well.”

Any person, whether they are seeking the reward or wish to remain anonymous, may contact law enforcement with any information on fugitive Gray by emailing: [email protected] and [email protected], or by calling their local 911 center if the information is urgent in nature and a safety issue.

The U.S. Marshals Service, in partnership with the ATF, Virginia State Police, and multiple other agencies, continue their search for fugitive Gray. We wish to express our most sincere appreciation to all law enforcement officers and agencies who have aided in the fugitive investigation, as well as businesses and members of the community who have helped as well.

The U.S. Marshals Service arrests more violent fugitives annually than all other federal agencies combined. For more information, go to

From the Better Business Bureau Watch Out For This New Take on Gov Scams Scammers have long impersonated government officials, but their new tactics are more intimidating than ever before. Learn how this new twist works and avoid falling victim to it. How the scam works You receive a letter in the mail that looks very official. It claims to come from a court or law enforcement agency. Scammers combine personal information collected from data breaches with official looking seals and watermarks to make the correspondence seem legitimate. The letter informs you that you have violated federal or state statutes and offers you two choices: cooperate as a witness or face indictment for serious crimes. Unfortunately, choosing to cooperate as a witness requires you to pay thousands of dollars in “legal fees.” But scammers don’t stop there. Whether or not you respond to the letter, they follow up with a call. Con artists use scare tactics, threatening you with jail time or other serious consequences if you don’t pay up. The more you engage with these scammers, the more aggressive they may become. One person reported this kind of experience on the BBB Scam Tracker. They said, “I received a voicemail message to return a call to the Dane County Sheriff’s office. When I called, a man said I was summoned to court and was notified by mail of this summons. I kept questioning him about this mailing. The man knew my address and middle name.” How to avoid government impostor scams: Verify correspondence with government agencies. If you receive a piece of mail or a call that seems suspicious, take a step back and make sure it’s legitimate before you take any action. Call the government office directly, using the official phone number, to verify the communications are real. Don’t engage with scammers. As soon as you know you are dealing with a scammer, cease communication. Stop answering calls, letters, or emails and block any numbers that have called you about the scam. Report government impostor scams to the FBI. Help the Federal Bureau of Investigation catch scammers by reporting your experience to For more information For more tips on how to avoid scams, visit Learn more about this scam in this alert from the FBI. Keep in mind that scammers impersonate all kinds of government agencies. Read more about scams pretending to be Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Members of the Chesapeake Crime Prevention Council, We have previously discussed what CCPC could do to provide support for our Chesapeake PD receiving competitive wages and benefits. This to make sure our officers are treated correctly as well as enabling the department to attract new officers when needed. One of the best things we can do is to inform City Council, the City Manager and the Mayor that we have collective support for this effort. For this purpose, we have created on on-line petition found at: called "Chesapeake City Council: Competitive wages and benefits for Chesapeake Police Department" and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name. Our goal is to reach 100 signatures. May we call upon you to help by clicking the link and adding your name to the petition? These results will be presented at a future City Council Meeting. Helping to support our PD works to support the safety of our communities. Please go to to participate. It only takes a minute. Thank you! Dan Royal Grove Court
