SHERIFF REMINDS PUBLIC OF HOLIDAY SAFETY TIPS PDF Print E-mail
Written by Major Jeff Cline   
Tuesday, 22 November 2011

With the start of the holiday shopping season, Sheriff Tim Bailey wants all Marion county citizens and visitors to have a safe and enjoyable shopping experience. “With the increase in pedestrian and vehicle traffic in our shopping areas, the public needs to be extra cautious and more aware of their surroundings. With this increase in activity, criminals could potentially use it as a distraction to commit crimes," Sheriff Bailey said.

Sheriff Bailey recommends the following Holiday Safety Tips:

  • Stay alert and be aware of what’s going on around you. Don’t look like victim.
  • Try to shop with a friend or relatives as there is safety in numbers.
  • Always park where there is plenty of light around your car and to the store entrance.
  • Before going into a store look inside your vehicle and make sure you can’t see anything of value that could be potentially stolen.
  • Use your trunk to store packages so thieves can’t see what you have purchased.
  • Keep your car locked at all times and have your keys in your hand before you go to your car.
  • Don’t leave your purse unattended (even for a few seconds) in your cart.
  • Don’t dangle your purse from your shoulder. Instead put the strap over your head so it is more difficult to grab and is kept closer to your body.
  • Don’t carry large amounts of money at one time. Carry enough for what you need to buy and keep it in a front pocket to deter pickpockets or purse thieves.
  • Only carry one or two credit cards at a time and make sure you secure them after use.

Sheriff Bailey reminds everyone that if you are a victim of crime to contact law enforcement immediately. CLICK HERE for a complete list of Holiday Safety Tips.

Tuesday, 01 November 2011

On 10.29.2011 officers from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the Marion Police Department, The MARMET-METRICH Drug Task Force along with assistance from members of the Marion County Recycling and Litter Prevention Office, the Marion Crawford ADAMH Board, The Marion Star and Marion General Hospital-Ohio Health joined efforts to collect medication from the community for disposal.

The event ran from 10am to 2pm at the Marion County Building in the rear parking lot. As a result of the event 168 cars came through and disposed of 131 pounds of unused pills and 230 pounds of unused cream and liquid medications for a total of 361 pounds of unused medications. Of the 168 cars that came through, 169 controlled substances were collected. Also collected were four large bins of syringes and four large containers of pill bottles to be shredded and recycled. All the medications collected will be incinerated. 

Marion County has held three of these collections and this has been the most successful. All agencies involved want to thank our community for making this event a success and making our community a safer place by properly disposing of these medications.
