The Jail & Detention Standards Unit recently conducted a jail inspection at the Schuyler County Jail. Schuyler Co Jail had a successful inspection and was found in compliance with all aspects of the inspections. The inspection is available for the general public to read at the County Clerk’s Office in the Schuyler County Courthouse during their business hours from 8am-4pm located at 102 S. Congress Rushville. Schuyler Co Sheriff Bill Redshaw reports the following activity in Schuyler Co for the week of March 30-April 6 On April 3 A Rushville resident was a victim of fraud. A company sent the Rushville resident a check, ordered to deposit the check and a survey of a variety of stores was to be conducted. The victim believed everything was legitimate, the victim deposited the check in his checking and was told after he conducted the survey he was to purchase large sum gift cards from the stores, take a picture of the gift card and email the pictures to the company. The resident did as asked and the check was found to be fraudulent, therefore the victim is out all the money. As of this time, the company is unable to be contacted through the phone number & email address provided. This matter is still under investigation. Please, do not fall victim to this crime. A company should not ask you to deposit a large sum check and to purchase gift cards to send them…this is a red flag and should be avoided.

Code of Ethics

As law enforcement officers, our fundamental duty is to serve mankind, to safeguard lives and property, to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation and the peaceful against violence or disorder, and to respect the Constitutional Rights of all men to liberty, equality and justice. I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all. I will maintain courageous and calm in the face of danger, scorn or ridicule. I will develop self-restraint and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. Honest in thought and deed in both my personal and official life. I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my Department. Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature of that which is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty. I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities, or friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminals, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities. I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of the police service. I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself before my profession: Law Enforcement.
