May 6, 2021 - CRIME- Lt. Jim Holtzinger from Washington County Sherrif's Dept. ZOOM MEETING -
Lt. Holsinger will be discussing ways for us to protect ourselves and our property. Called Target Hardening. Crime is not taking a vacation. We need to be open to any help we can get. Please tune in on our Zoom meeting to show your support and to learn what we can do. Too late, after something bad happens.
We want to hear what Lt. Holsinger has to say. He encourages questions. He is running for Sheriff in the 2022 election and wants everyone to know what he is trying to accomplish for our County. This information being shared will help EVERYONE, no matter what your location.
I hope you will show the police force in your own areas how much you appreciate them. They are a vital part of our lives and we need them to know even with the new passing of the Bills (pushed by those in the Baltimore, DC area who are surrounding themselves with a fence) how much we need and appreciate them. I personally know how hard they work and how much heart it takes to do the job they do every single day.

Avoiding Identity Theft: 1. Dumpster Diving or Trash Bag Rummaging. Shred any and all paperwork that has your name and address on it, and especially if it has an account number or membership number on it. When throwing magazines away, shred the label and any ordering forms that may have your account number them, such as in mail order catalogs. 2. Phishing. They pretend to be financial institutions or companies and send spam or pop-up messages to get you to reveal your personal information. They will even call saying they are from a facility you use (bank) Banks will send information in the mail for special loans and programs. Do not give out mortgage information or anything else personal from someone who called you. If you did not initiate the call, hang up.
All of our troops, Past & Present. They fight for all of the freedoms we so easily take for granted. Don't ever forget 9-11 happened and the devastation. Honor our troops!!. Bless all of the families of these troops. God Bless you all.
