The Ripley County Sheriff's Office has received calls regarding a recent scam in which the caller ID shows the telephone number for the Sheriff's Office and the caller identifies themselves as a deputy. The scammer is telling residents that the call is regarding the IRS. Sheriff Cumberworth advises residents to use caution when speaking to these individuals and never give them any personal information, bank information or send them money.

Ripley County Sheriff, Jeff Cumberworth, announced today that the Indiana Sheriff’s Association will again be awarding college scholarships to qualified high school seniors or college students who are pursuing a degree in criminal justice studies. There will be 40 - $500 scholarships awarded to qualifying students throughout the state.

The Indiana Sheriff’s Association Scholarship Fund was established for the purpose of receiving, investing and dispensing of funds to provide college scholarships to qualified students who are committed to pursuing an education and career in the law enforcement field.

The Ripley County Sheriff’s Department has recently subscribed to LeadsOnline, which is a Nationwide database of Pawn/Scrap transactions. This system has played a large role in solving multiple crimes that have occurred in Ripley County in the short time since the Sheriff’s Department started using it. A feature of this database is available to the citizens of Ripley County, called “ReportIt”. This feature is a Safe, Secure, and FREE site where residents can create a list of their valuables, including item descriptions, photographs of the items, scanned receipts, and most importantly the serial numbers of their valuables.

In the event that you are ever the victim of a crime and your property is taken, you can provide the descriptions and serial numbers of the items to Law Enforcement. Having the serial numbers for your valuables and providing those to Law Enforcement significantly increases the chances of your property being recovered, as well as the suspect being identified and held accountable for their actions.
