SCCAT/COP Shop/RESOURCE CENTER
The Sheriff's Department will be at Lakeside C.O.P. Shop on July 20th from 2 - 7 p.m. Concealed weapons permits can be issued during this time or just stop by and meet Undersheriff Webb.
S.C.C.A.T. would like to thank LaDonna Cozby for being an outstanding volunteer. She joined S.C.C.A.T. in September 2010 and works in the C.O.P. Shop as well as the N.O.P. program. When we ask if she can take an additional shift, she is there to help.
LaDonna is a retired accountant. She likes to read, walk, ride bikes and gardening.
LaDonna, we appreciate all that you do for S.C.C.A.T.
TIPS FOR PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM FINANCIAL EXPLOITATION.
• Telephone scam artists try to get your personal information by offering prizes, credit cards and other false benefits. If it is too good to be true, it probably is.
*Do not sign any document until you or someone you trust has read it.
*Get two or more bids for home repair work from reputable contractors. Do not hire anyone unless they are bonded and licensed. Beware of having more work done than is needed.
*There are many charity scams where the charity does not exist. Donate to known charities.
*Make sure you check the references of a potential caregiver and, if possible, perform a background check. Rule out anyone with a history of violence, alcohol or drug abuse.
