Detective Johnson of the Show Low Police Department talks about a Fraudulent activity that is costing the Mountain money.


Return fraud

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Return fraud is the act of defrauding a retail store via the return process. There are various ways in which this crime is committed. For example, the offender may return stolen merchandise to secure cash, or steal receipts and/or receipt tape to enable a falsified return. Return abuse is a form of “friendly fraud” where someone purchases products without intending to keep them. Perhaps the most well-known form of this abuse is “wardrobing” or “free renting” – in which the person makes a purchase, uses the product(s), and then returns the merchandise.

There are various types of "return fraud", which impose large costs on retailers.
The retail industry experiences a significant fraud and abuse problem, losing money in the range of $9.6 to $14.8 billion per year, according to studies conducted by the National Retail Federation (NRF) and the Loss Prevention Research Council.[citation needed]

The problem has historically caused retailers to raise prices for shoppers in order to offset and recover the losses incurred from fraudulent returns. Alternatively, many stores have created stricter return policies such as “no receipt, no return” or imposed return time restrictions such as a 30-day limit on all returns that impact all shoppers.

A certain percentage of returned merchandise must be marked down or discarded in order to sell the product. After being returned, out-of-season clothing may have to be placed on the sale rack, for example. Or retailers may be forced to discard returned lingerie for health reasons. The retail company also incurs restocking time from returns, which could be time an associate spends driving new sales revenue by assisting customers.

Cari Bilbie talks all about Project Clean Sweep and how residents of Show Low can benefit. From Green Disposal, Bulk Pickup and free drops at the Waste Management Facility.

The City of Show Low will sponsor the 16th annual Project Clean Sweep, our popular and successful beautification program. Rid your property of un- wanted items and green waste to make it more attractive and fire-safe. Participation in the program is FREE to those presenting proof of residency—either a City of Show Low utility bill showing current refuse service or a valid driver’s license listing a physical address within the city limits.

As in previous years, construction materials and hazardous materials (liq- uid paints, oils, pesticides, herbicides and household cleaning products) are strictly prohibited. In addition, com- mercial businesses are excluded from participating in the program.

This year ushers in two major changes to this well-received program.

1) Cash for Trash is eliminated. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of bulky item pick-up, which accepts the same items.

2) Project Clean Sweep is split into two different weeks, with the program components scheduled as follows:

- Green waste dumping – Monday, May 26–Saturday,

May 31 (this component is offered only during this first week of the program)

- Bulky item pick up – Monday, June 2–Friday, June 6

- Abandoned vehicles – request form due by Wednesday, June 4

- Lone Pine transfer station – Monday, June 2–Saturday, June 7

Public input is part of national reaccreditation process


SHOW LOW, Ariz. (February 18, 2015) – Public comments about the Show Low Police Department are invited during an information session on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Show Low City Council Chambers, 181 N. 9th Street. The public meeting is one component of the police department’s reaccreditation process, a highly prized national recognition of public safety professional excellence that the department initially earned in 2012. A team of assessors from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA) will conduct the March 24 session.

            Accreditation is for four years, during which the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with the rigorous standards under which it was initially accredited. In addition, CALEA assessors periodically examine all aspects of the department’s policy and procedures, management, operations and support services. The process verifies that the Show Low Police Department meets the Commission’s state-of-the-art standards. Community input is a key part of the assessment process.

            If for some reason an individual cannot speak at the public information session but would still like to provide comments to the assessment team, he/she may do so by telephone. The public is invited to call (928) 537-0884 on March 24, 2015, between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

            Telephonic and in-person comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency’s ability to comply with CALEA standards. A copy of the standards is available for public viewing at the Show Low Police Department by calling Commander Brad Provost at (928) 537-5091, ext. 227.

            Written comments about the Show Low Police Department’s ability to meet the standards for accreditation are also welcome. Send comments to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc.,13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, VA, 20155.

            The CALEA Assessment Manager for the Show Low Police Department is Kimberly Crannis. She has assigned an assessment team composed of public safety practitioners from similar, but out-of-state, agencies. The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals and visit offices and other locations where compliance can be witnessed. The assessors are Chief Wayne McCoy from Blue Springs, MO and Sergeant Michael Halloran from Loveland, CO.

Once the CALEA assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to be granted accredited status.

            More information about the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. is available at, by writing to the Commission at 13575 Heathcote Boulevard, Suite 320, Gainesville, VA, 20155, by calling (703) 352-4225 or by email at

Show Low police urge motorists to be careful


SHOW LOW, Ariz. (January 5, 2015) – With winter upon us, here are some safe driving tips from the Show Low Police department, especially when driving on icy, snow-packed or slick surfaces. Use the mindset that driving on a slick road is like trying to play basketball on a hockey rink. Because your vehicle’s traction is compromised, it is impossible to make sudden starts, stops and changes in direction. Accelerate slowly, allow more time to slow down and almost come to a stop before moving side to side.

The best advice is not to drive but if you must, allow extra time to reach your destination. Decrease your speed and allow extra stopping distance, at least three times more than normal. Also remember that front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles can still have issues. These types of vehicles just make it easier to move, but do nothing to improve braking and will slide the same as you try to stop. 

Back into your driveway, if possible, because it makes it easier to drive out. Make sure your headlights are on and cleared of snow or ice for other drivers to see you. Defrost your windows fully and keep your windshield and mirrors clear. Be sure to brush all the snow off your car before you drive. Snow left behind can obscure your vision, blow onto your windshield and impede your wipers, sift into the ventilation and fog up the windshield, blow off and distract other drivers or cover your back windshield or lights. Buckle up and try not to travel alone or at least tell someone your estimated arrival time and your route. Use lower gears but do not use cruise control. If you begin to slide, steer in the direction of the slide. If you have regular brakes pump them gently, but if you have anti-lock brakes do not pump them.

If you do happen to become stranded or stuck, turn your wheels back and forth to clear the snow from around the tires. Stay with your vehicle and avoid getting frustrated. Make sure your exhaust is not blocked. Place a flare at the front and back of your vehicle and tie a bright cloth to your antenna if you have them. Run your car and heater for 10 minutes each hour. Do not eat cold snow; it will lower your body temperature. Brush snow off your clothes and kick slush off your boots before you get in the vehicle because melting snow adds humidity to the air which can fog the windows.

Before traveling, check your car to make sure you have enough fuel, the washer fluid container is full and your exhaust is in good shape. Check to make sure that your tires (and spare tire), belts, wipers and battery are all in good working order. Make sure that you have a tool kit handy, if needed. Put together an emergency kit to keep in your vehicle containing such items as a flashlight and batteries, a good scraper with a brush, a shovel, salt or non-clumping cat litter, jumper cables, clothing to keep you warm (blanket, gloves, hat), non-perishable food items, chains, tow strap, first aid kit, matches (sealed) and flares or reflectors.


Please drive safely and make this new year a happy one instead of a tragic one.
