“Fall” may finally be here,
Although this is a topic we cover frequently, I thought a few points were worth repeating as the weather gets nice and the holidays approach:
The 8th Annual CiPAAS Open is almost here and we need your help! We are still looking for golfers and sponsors to participate in the Citizen Police Academy Alumni of Scottsdale (CiPAAS) golf tournament on Saturday, November 12, at the Rio Verde Country Club. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Scottsdale Police Department Youth Activities Programs.
We need companies or organizations to help sponsor the tournament. Many different levels of contribution opportunities are available. We are also looking for donations of items or services from local businesses for our auction and raffle. If you are interested in helping to find sponsors or donations, please contact Larry Gress at 480- 607-3933 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you know any golfers, let them know about this opportunity! The entry fee for playing in the tournament is $100, which includes use of the practice range on the morning of the event, golf and cart, continental breakfast, lunch, and the chance to win great prizes! Player registration and continental breakfast begin at 7 a.m. The scramble tournament will commence with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. An auction, raffle, and awards luncheon will follow for all golfers. Tickets for those attending only the luncheon are available for $29 per person.
Registration forms for golfing are available at our website, www.cipaas.org. The Rio Verde Country Club is located at 18731 E. Four Peaks Blvd., Rio Verde, AZ, 85263. For more information about the tournament or how to volunteer, contact Sara Schnirring at 480-614-8929 or CiPAAS@hotmail.com.

This month I would like to share an article written by one of our own, Officer Art Vernon about Safeguarding Backflow Preventer Valves.
If the unfortunate does happen and you or your businesses are a victim of this type of crime, a new backflow assembly (usually of the same type) must be installed immediately. Please use a properly licensed contractor. The contractor must obtain a minimum plumbing permit to perform the work. You should ensure the plumber contacts the Scottsdale Cross-Connection Control Program at 480-312-5668.

The FBI's Child ID App Putting
You're shopping at the mall with your children when one of them suddenly disappears. A quick search of the nearby area is unsuccessful. What do you do?
Now there's a free new tool from the FBI that can help. Our just launched Child ID app—the first mobile application created by the FBI—provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your children so that it’s literally right at hand if you need it. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks.
The app also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing.
We encourage you to share the word about this app with family and friends, especially during upcoming activities in your communities to raise awareness on crime and drug prevention. For its part, the FBI is working to publicize the app with the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA)—its long-time partner in the National Child Identification Program, which provides a physical kit to gather your child’s pictures, fingerprints, personal characteristics, and even DNA to keep with you in case of emergency. The AFCA is producing a public service announcement about the app and will spread the word at various football games during the upcoming season.
Right now, the Child ID app is only available for use on iPhones and can only be downloaded for free from the App Store on iTunes, but we plan to expand this tool to other types of mobile devices in the near future. And we’ll be adding new features—including the ability to upload other photos stored on your smart phone—in the coming weeks and months.
The FBI's new Child ID app can be downloaded for free from the App Store on iTunes.
