City of Madras
The Madras Police Department has one Police patrol bicycle
that is used during the the warmer months of each year.
Officers who choose to utilize the Police bike, to include
Reserve Officers, will patrol the streets of Madras and enforce
laws and ordinances in a much more flexible manner.
The bike and equipment being utilized for this program have
been donated by a small handful of local businesses who felt
this type of patrolling effort would be an asset to the citizens

In Touch With E-mail
In touch with E-mail was created and implemented by the Madras
Police Department in an effort to close the communication
gap between Jefferson County based businesses and the Madras
Police Department. It is a way for information
to be passed on to all participating businesses in a quick
As cases come up, such as Bad/Forged Check, Runaway Juvenile's,
Wanted Subjects, etc.. A message will be
typed out giving a complete description of the details, such
as checking accounts to look for and not accept, persons to
be watching for, vehicle descriptions and so forth.
Also in the message will be included providing information
as to what the Police are requesting they do if anything shows
up at their business. An image of the check,
or person the Police are looking for will be sent in the E-mail
as an attachment file allowing the viewer to pull it up immediately.
They can print the information along with the scanned imaged
and keep it handy at their work for their employees to view.
If you are a Jefferson County based business and would like
to participate in this program, send E-mail advising us of the same. Be sure to write 'In touch With
E-mail' in the subject line. Also ensure that
the E-mail address you are sending your message from is the
same address you wish us to contact you at, or provide the
actual address in the content of your message along with a
phone number and name. You will be contacted via
phone to confirm your request.
The reason we go outside the City limit with this program
is because the subjects we wish to contact often live outside
the Madras City Limits. Criminals often steal checks from
within Madras and cash them as well as make purchases at stores
throughout the county. By being a participant in this program
you may be able to identify a bad check prior to accepting
it and call for the Police.

Graffiti Clean Up
Operation Graffiti Clean Up is a very simple
method implemented by the Madras Police Department in conjunction
with the Jefferson County Juvenile Department to stay on top
of the ongoing problems in Madras with graffiti. There
are not enough Officers in Madras to keep up with this and
your help is needed. It's as simple
During the course of your day, if you see graffiti
on anything in Madras, then E-mail
us with information as to the exact location. If you
know the content of the graffiti then add this to your message
|| The information provided by you
will be forwarded to the Juvenile Department and it
will be assigned to a youthful offender for clean up.
Once a location of graffiti
is identified and forwarded to the Juvenile Department, it
may take some time before it is actually cleaned up. The Juvenile
Department will get to it as soon as they possibly can in
the order in which it is received. If the graffiti reported
is on private property, then permission will have to be obtained
from the owner prior to clean up. The bottom line is that
the graffiti should be removed as soon as possible to prevent
attracting more graffiti and gang violence in addition to
detracting from the beautification of the City Of Madras.
Paint and Supply donations will be accepted and appreciated
for this project and will be gladly accepted on an ongoing
basis. Contact Mike Beeler at the Jefferson County Juvenile
Office for information on where to send funds and/or supplies. A special note will be added to our Web Site thanking
those who donate Funds, Supplies or Time.
Check out the information provided on Graffiti
and its effects on the community when left in place.
