Sheriff Citizen Patrol




 

The Camano Island Sheriff's citizen patrol is looking for a few good men and women! The Sheriff's Citizen Patrol have been patrolling Camano Island and assisting deputies for more than 20 years.  

These volunteers are not law enforcement officers but assist the Island County Sheriff's Office by conducting vacation house checks, processing concealed weapons permits, and delivering interoffice materials between Camano and Whidbey Islands. 


THE S.C.P. volunteers are NOT law enforcement officers or deputies.



Island County Sheriff’s Citizen Patrol’s services for the public:

 

 1.  Vacation house and after-hours business checks, (you can request a vacation house check here), 


 2.  Finger printing twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays between 1:30 - 4:30 PM,


3.  Placement of the “radar trailer” to help as a reminder for those speeding.  Any residential area may request the radar trailer to be placed in their community.



Other duties performed by the Citizen Patrol are:


1. Notifying a community when a “sex offender” has moved into their neighborhood, as per instructions from the Sheriff’s Office.


2. The delivery of “mail” 3 times a week to county offices at Coupeville and return with like items to Camano county offices.  The term mail includes items of official or sensitive nature.  If not for the volunteer Citizen Patrol, a county employee would be required to take time for these details. 


            3.  The S.C.P. volunteers will assist the I.C.S.O. when requested.


Candidates must pass a background check and undergo a training program prior to being placed in a volunteer position.  If you are interested in volunteering for this program, the applications can be downloaded here: ICSO SCP Application 2019 newest.doc

 


PHONE SCAM ALERT


PHONE SCAM ALERT

MESSAGE FROM ISLAND COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE REGARDING A RECENT PHONE SCAM

We have received numerous phone calls regarding a subject identifying himself as "Lieutenant Daniels" with the Island County Sheriff's Office leaving messages requesting a call about a "Civil Matter" or a "Urgent Matter".  The number the subject leaves goes directly to the voice mail box of "Rick Felici" (the name of the current Chief Criminal Deputy) and the extension the victim is asked to dial goes directly to the voice mail box of "Lieutenant Daniels".  

If the victim answers their phone during the initial call,  or leaves a call back number on the voicemail, the next step usually involves threats of arrest for non-payment of fines or outstanding warrants.  The suspect will then ask for payment usually in the form of gift cards or prepaid debit cards.  In some instances the suspect may ask directly for the victim's credit card number. 

The Sheriff's Office will not request payment over the phone for fines or arrest warrant removal, especially in the form of gift cards or prepaid debit cards.  Legal fines are paid through the court system. The telephone number the call comes from and the telephone number the victim is directed to dial all appear to be local telephone numbers, however our detectives have tracked them back to a voice mail service in Florida.

 If you do get a message or end up speaking with an individual and you doubt who they may be, you can contact the Sheriff's Office main extension during business hours at 360-678-4422, or the ICOM dispatch center at 360-679-9567. 
      

UPDATE:

We have gotten several more reports that the Island County Sheriff's Office phone scam is evolving.  The suspect is calling from a number that has had the caller ID changed (Spoofed) to show that it is coming from the Island County Sheriff's Office or the Island County court house.

 If someone answers the phone, the caller identifies themselves as "Rick Felici" (the current Chief Criminal Deputy) or " Lieutenant Daniels" and states that they need to speak about an urgent matter.  In an attempt to legitimize the call, the caller will often provide information to the victim such as their physical address, email addresses or other personal information that can be found online through various sources.
 

The caller then tells the victim that they have outstanding arrest warrants or civil fines that they need to pay or face arrest. The suspect then gets verbally aggressive with the victim and demands payment via prepaid credit cards or gift cards. If no one answers the phone, the suspect leaves a message directing the victim to call due to an "urgent" matter and leaves a number that goes to an automated voicemail.

If you receive a message from anyone claiming to be with the Island County Sheriff's Office, or if you speak with someone directly, you can verify who they are by calling our business line at 360-678-4422 during business hours or the ICOM dispatch center at 360-679-9567 24 hours a day. 

Please remember: 

LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL NOT CALL YOU TO COLLECT FINES OR ACCEPT PAYMENT TO REMOVE ARREST WARRANTS, ALL FINES ARE COLLECTED THROUGH THE COURT SYSTEM.

ANY TYPE OF PAYMENT OWED WOULD NEVER BE IN THE FORM OF PREPAID CREDIT CARDS OR GIFT CARDS.

DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD NUMBERS OR ANY BANK INFORMATION.
