Corps Watch Property Protection Program to Deter Crime

     The Wills Creek Dam Project Office operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was the site of a break-in and larceny Sept. 20, 2011, which resulted in the theft of power tools, chain saws, a 9.9 horsepower boat motor and other government equipment. 

     All items were marked with bar tags or engravings identifying them as government equipment.  If you have any information on this incident, please call the toll free number: 1-866-413-7970.

     To help fight crime and reduce operations and maintenance costs, the Corps of Engineers has received Congressional authority to offer cash rewards of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of individuals causing damage to Corps property. 

     Individuals who witness or suspect that a crime has been committed against Corps property are encouraged to call 1-866-413-7970 (the line is operated 24 hours a day) to report information about theft, vandalism, or any other threats or suspicious activity against Corps property. Callers can remain anonymous. This program does not replace the 911 emergency notification system.
