    In an effort to keep businesses safe and informed, Nex-Tech is sponsoring a session with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on Tuesday, June 12, 2012, at the Sternberg Museum, Hays. Program will begin at 1:30 p.m.

 

Special Agents will be presenting the topics of cybercrime, computer hacking and fraudulent activities. These agents work with the most sophisticated cybercrimes as they are manufactured, as well as prosecuting the criminals. Computer viruses, identity theft, phishing scams, theft of classified information and even cyber terrorism and warfare all fall under the Special Agent’s realm of expertise.

Learn about what cybercrime activities are happening in Kansas and more specifically, Western Kansas. Not only will agents be presenting on crimes happening here, but best practices you can use to protect your business.

 

If your business is uncertain of your computer’s network security, or even if you feel you have all of your networks’ vulnerabilities tightly sealed, this seminar won’t disappoint. We guarantee you will learn something new and be prepared to be “wowed” by the speeds new scams are being developed.

 

Seating is limited for this free event. You may register by calling Trisha Sauer at 877-625-7872 or by sending an email to tsauer@nex-tech.com.

 

 

Garden City Police Department

Business Crime Alerts

 

The Alert Network allow the Garden City Police Department to instantly update you about crimes, emergencies and other important information.  All Alerts are delivered via email and are also avilable via text message on your cell phone.

 

Business Alerts are targeted to specific business types, so your business will receive information about crimes that are pertinent to your business type.  You can receive information about stolen checks, counterfeit money or other scams affecting businesses in our area.

Other Alerts Include:

 

Citizen Alerts inform all registered users of public safety concerns in your area.  The Alerts contain information about crime trends, descriptions of suspects, missing person, as well as advice on personal safety and how to safeguard property.

 

Case Alerts allow law enforcement to automatically disseminate information about open cases to all registered Citizen Observer users.

 

Watch Group Alerts allow law enforcement to send targeted alerststo specific neighborhoods with information about crimes that are happening in their immediate area.

 

Secure Two-Way Communication between the public and local law enforcement

 

Possibly the biggest benefit of the Alert Network is the way it makes possible two-way communication between enforcement and the public.

 

Law Enforcement can update citizens on situation that require their attention.

 

As we the public learn about fugitives, missing person and unsolved cases, we can provide tips directly to the agency.
