Rockford Scanner™: Police Label Body Found In River, As Medical Assist. Numerous Medical Assist Calls.

Rockford Scanner



 

 

 

Yesterday the body of a 62 year old female was pulled from the Rock River. 

Rockford Scanner™: Sources Reporting Numerous Police Officers At A Scene, Possible Body Found

We been trying to get information on this call, to update everyone. 

Police have been quiet and said “No Comment” and told us to file a Freedom Of Information Act request, if we wanted any updates. 

As you know, they have denied numerous FOIA requests we filed. 

They labeled this call a “Medical Assist” in their call log. 

Now take a second and look at how many “Medical Assists” are in their call logs.  

Ask yourself, is each one of these calls a body? 

Note: In the past, they have properly labeled the calls as “Found Body” 
But these days, I guess it is now just a “Medical Assist”

We saw a duck frantically running around and we got out and heard the little chirps down in the sewer! My girls were so proud of us! Some of the shoppers thought we were committing a crime and next thing we knew the Winnebago Sheriffs were watching us as we climbed out of the sewer. We explained and showed them the ducks we put in a box that we rescued. The Sheriffs helped us locate the Mama duck and reunite the little adorable duck family!”

Rockford Scanner™: Man Tipped His Kayak And Needed To Be Rescued



On 6-30-2018 at 2:57 pm The Janesville Police Department and Janesville Fire Department were dispatched to the Monterey Dam for a water rescue. Officers from the patrol division were the first to arrive on scene. The officers saw a male subject hung up near the dam.

Responding officers shut down traffic on Center Avenue so they could work toward recovering the victim. Officers responded to potential recovery areas down river to offer assistance and further attempt a rescue. Officers made several attempts to reach him in and bring him to safety. Two of our officers went into the water to get a tow line to the victim, with no success as the current was to strong.

Members from The Janesville Fire Department deployed a boat south of the victim. The Janesville Police Department Deployed a Drone to offer additional assistance as well.

Approximately 20 minutes after we were notified of the incident the victim was recovered from the Rock River by The Janesville Fire Department. He was wearing a personal floatation device at the time of incident, which contributed to his safety.

The victim, a 27 year old male was kayaking the rock river in route to a destination in Northern Illinois when his kayak tipped over just north of the Monterey Dam. He became lodged in the area and the current swept him just south of the rail road overpass, where he was eventually rescued. He was treated and released from an area medical facility.
