SCANNER RECAP April 27, 2023

Two MISSING Juveniles, Drugs, Warrants, Fire Alarms, Shoplifters and more, every day on Scotts Bluff County Scanner.

Charmaine Simmons was again reported as a Missing Juvenile Wednesday night.

Now, the family is asking for our help. Charmaine is missing again. She returns to school, then disappears again. Please help encourage this young lady to return home if you know or see her. She needs to get help and get back on her meds.

Please understand that even though these children are listed as runaways, they could still be in danger. Missing = Missing… regardless of the circumstances of how they left, or who convinced them to leave.

Alexavier’s mother is asking for our help.

Alliance Tactical Readiness

The Alliance Police Department recently provided the following information on their armored vehicle via social media.

The Alliance Police Department will utilize the TRTV for the following reasons:

Protection: An armored vehicle can provide increased protection for law enforcement officers in high-risk situations, such as active shooter scenarios, hostage situations, or when dealing with heavily armed suspects. It can provide a barrier between officers and potential threats, allowing them to approach dangerous situations with more confidence.

Rescue: An armored vehicle can be useful in rescue situations where officers need to extract civilians from a dangerous environment, such as a building that has been taken over by an armed suspect.

Tactical Operations: In certain tactical operations, an armored vehicle can be used to transport a SWAT team or other specialized unit to a location while providing cover and protection during the approach.

Response to Natural Disasters: An armored vehicle can be useful in response to natural disasters, such as snowstorms or tornados(hail storms speaking of recent history), where law enforcement may need to navigate through dangerous terrain or debris to rescue survivors.

Public Events: An armored police vehicle could be used at public events, such as fairs or festivals, to provide a visible police presence and allow members of the community to interact with law enforcement officers.

School Visits: An armored police vehicle could be used to visit schools as part of a community outreach program. Students could have the opportunity to tour the vehicle, meet with officers, and learn about law enforcement in their community.

Safety Presentations: An armored police vehicle could be used as a backdrop for safety presentations, such as talks on gun safety or disaster preparedness. This would allow officers to provide valuable information to the community while also showcasing the vehicle.
