Special Event for Special Olympics
For the third year in a row, the Kingman Police Department (KPD) will be holding the Arizona Law
Enforcement Poker Run to benefit Special Olympics AZ on Saturday, October 5th, beginning at 8AM. Everyone is invited to
attend this fundraiser and all proceeds go to Special Olympics AZ.
The Poker Run is a fun and relaxing motorcycle ride that begins at KPD, (2730 East Andy Devine Ave)
travels to Oatman, Bullhead City, and returns to Kingman within a four hour time frame. Participants receive one Poker

after all “hands” are turned in. There will be raffles prizes from local businesses, a 50/50 drawing, and food at the
end of the Poker Run.

applied for the grant, which was awarded in September 2010.
Kingman Police Department Joins the National Crime Map
Citizens now have free access to official, timely crime data through the CrimeReports website and iPhone app
Kingman, Ariz.—Jan. 24, 2011
Have you ever seen flashing red and blue lights in your neighborhood and wanted to know what was going on? Do you want to find out how safe your neighborhood really is? Now you can, through a
new partnership between the Kingman Police Department and CrimeReports, creators of the National Crime Map
"Providing reliable, timely information to our citizens is one of our top priorities," says Chief Robert DeVries. "Partnering with CrimeReports gives us the
ability to keep the public informed on a regular basis as to what is going on in the community." He added that the public can access the crime map 24 hours a day through the website or through
the CrimeReports iPhone app, available for free download in the Apple iTunes store. The new service even lets local citizens sign up for free customizable email alerts, so they can stay on top
of crime in their neighborhood. "Information is power," Chief DeVries added, "and we hope that giving the community this information will help them prevent crime in their neighborhoods."
"The Kingman Police Department is a leader in law enforcement innovation," says Greg Whisenant, founder and CEO of CrimeReports. "They are demonstrating their
commitment to the community, to proactive policing, and fiscal responsibility."
Kingman PD is joining over 1,600 other law enforcement agencies of all sizes across North America who share their crime information with the public through the
map, like Baltimore, Boston, San Jose, San Francisco, Portland, Washington D.C., Los Angeles County, and more.

you can obtain the same information from DocView. The report will cost $13.00 and
Insurance Companies can set up an account, to be billed
monthly. You will still be able to get your Crash
