ANTI-THEFT PROGRAM FOR FARMS, BUSINESSES 06/05/09 9:09:24 AM
The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office is offering a program to help spread information about
stolen farm and construction equipment. The program, called Agriculture Livestock Information Network,
also is aimed at spreading the word about suspicious activity around farms and businesses across Sedgwick County and surrounding counties.
Agricultural producers, farmers cooperatives, implement dealers and construction businesses can register by calling the sheriff's community policing unit at (316) 522-2610 or by e-mailing to email@example.com, attention Deputy Travis Clinesmith. Those who are registered will receive e-mails.
People are still supposed to call 911 in emergencies or to report suspicious activity or thefts. After notifying 911, the next step is to e-mail information to firstname.lastname@example.org. The e-mail should describe what was stolen, including the color, brand, year, identifying marks and other descriptive information.
"If you are reporting a suspicious character, describe all individuals involved, any vehicle information and what the suspects were doing that caught your attention," the Sheriff's Office said.
