The Kingman Police Department would like to warn the public of a phone scam that has been attempted on at least two occasions.  During the phone call the caller is reported to represent himself as being from the IRS.  The scammer attempts to convince the person to wire money to satisfy any tax debt.  The caller is reported to have a foreign accent.  This is not how the IRS operates.   Most of these type of phone scams are initiated from outside the United States and usually involve the scammer trying to convince the victim to wire money to another location.  Arrest and apprehension of these criminals is very unlikely.  The best service the police can provide in these types of incidents is to educate and hopefully prevent anyone from being victimized.

Mission Statement

"It is the mission of the Kingman Police Department to maintain a high quality of life for our residents and visitors, through an active partnership with the community, by being proactive in reducing crime, apprehending criminal offenders, and aggressively addressing all public safety concerns." 

Coffee with Cops

Coffee with Cops is a community outreach program. KPD holds these events at different times and locations throughout the city on a quarterly basis. The events are advertised and posted, inviting anyone in the community to come and share a cup of coffee with members of the department. The idea is to make ourselves more accessible to the general public for questions and comments. The Kingman Public Safety Mobile Command Post is usually the meeting point and makes the event easier to find.

The next Coffee with Cops will be on Thursday, February 26th, from 11:00am to 2:00pm in the parking lot of Cerbat Lanes, 3631 Stockton Hill Rd.

NOTICE: Unused prescription medication may always be dropped off at the Kingman Police Department 24/7.
