Rifle Causes Stir, Prompts Response

Around 2:15 pm today, Scanner Traffic indicated a report of someone walking down the street with a rifle on their shoulder. Gering Schools went to Secure Status while Officers went to each school to facilitate an orderly release to parents.

A new scanner is being ordered to improve our signal to the public. Thank you to Siegfried Consulting LLC for their generous donation.


The National Association of Letter Carriers of Scottsbluff invites you to participate in a community wide food drive for our local food banks!
