SEMMES MAYOR-ELECT DAVID BAKER ANNOUNCES HIS PUBLIC SAFETY PLAN

SEMMES MAYOR-ELECT DAVID BAKER
ANNOUNCES HIS PUBLIC SAFETY PLAN
      After consulting with firemen, concerned citizens, and attorneys, Mayor-Elect David Baker today announced his plans and proposals for a much-improved Fire and Rescue Service to serve all of the residents now being served, but with faster response times, a more stable workforce, and newer equipment. The long-serving, much-appreciated, Semmes Volunteer Fire Department of the past exists today in name only. Only three volunteers remain. Now, professional City-paid crews man the three Semmes stations around the clock. Our Public Safety Committee will work closely with the Fire Chief and other members of the Fire Department to develop a list of urgent priorities, starting with personal safety equipment for all firemen.  I would like to bring those needs to the Council for action as soon as possible.

U.S. Marshals Warn Public Of Pop-Up/Malwarescam Affecting Mobile Devices
Scammers Attempt to Hold Phones, Tablets Hostage For Money

Washington – The U.S. Marshals Service warns the public to avoid downloading malicious software affecting mobile devices; incidents of the digital scam have been reported nationwide after users visit pornography websites. Disguised as a message from the U.S. Marshals, the pop-up malware takes control of the device and populates the screen with a message accusing the user of accessing child pornography. The user is then instructed to pay a fee to avoid prosecution and regain access of their device. Do not pay the requested fee. The U.S. Marshals Service does not conduct such activity.

Open Letter from Mayor Stimpson – Mayor of Mobile Alabama

Open Letter from Mayor Stimpson
June 23, 2016

Dear Colleagues,

I am in receipt of your letter dated June 21, 2016, regarding the officer-involved shooting that took place June 13, 2016, in Mobile. Since the shooting of Michael Moore, the City of Mobile has made multiple unprecedented moves to maintain peace and order, incorporating lessons learned from other communities that have experienced similar tragedies. As an example, within hours of the incident, my Administration called upon the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice to run an independent investigation in parallel with the ongoing investigations being conducted by the Mobile Police Department. In addition, we asked that the President of the Mobile chapter of the NAACP be allowed to witness the autopsy of Michael Moore. That request was honored by the Mobile County District Attorney’s Office, who will also conduct their own investigation of the fatal shooting.
