DRUG TESTING KITS
To help families, the Anna Police Department has partnered with TestMyTeen.com, an organization offering home drug test kit vouchers to be provided anonymously to parents who need them.
Too often, police are the first to know when local kids use drugs while their parents may be the last to know.
If you think your teen could be experimenting with drugs, you can take action to solve problems before they occur or get much worse. Unfortunately, “friends” often try hard to make kids who say “no” to drugs, alcohol and tobacco feel like outcasts. Home testing kits may offer your kids a socially-acceptable excuse, “My parents test me.”
To obtain a home drug test kit for your teen, please visit https://testmyteen.com/free-home-drug-test-kit/. Pay the shipping and handling fee of $6.95 and use the coupon code, "5P8W2" to drop the price of the kit to one cent, meaning the total cost for one home drug test kit to you is $6.96. Please note, there is a limit of one kit per family.
FAMILY VIOLENCE AND PROTECTIVE ORDERS
If you have been the victim of family violence, there is information about protective orders.
FINGERPRINTS & BACKGROUND CHECKS
If you need fingerprints for a pre-employment background check, passport, or other, the Collin County Sheriff's Office can do it for you at their detention facility located at 4300 Community Boulevard in McKinney. This service sometimes involves a long wait and is by appointment only. More information from DPS on fingerprints: here Criminal background checks can be obtained through the Texas DPS only.
MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
The Anna Police Department is partnered with LifePath Systems to provide mental health and crisis counseling service options to our residents. LifePath Systems exists for the purpose of offering services to restore, improve, and maintain an optimum level of functioning and quality of life for Collin County residents who are mentally ill/retarded. For other available options, please contact our Mental Health Liaison Officer, Anjanette Osborne by email or call 972-924-2848
The purpose of the Neighborhood Watch program is to organize neighbors and bring them together in order to make them more vigilant about what transpires in their neighborhood. Neighborhood watches help reduce the fear and incidence of crime, thus making our city a safer place to live, work, and play. If you would like to organize a neighborhood watch program in your area, please contact Sgt. Steve Williams by email or call at 972-924-2848. For more information, read more.
StaySafe.org is an excellent source of information that can help guide you through the process of starting your neighborhood crime watch.
TAKE ME HOME PROGRAM
The Anna Police Department is proud to announce our participation in the “Take Me Home” Program. The Program was developed by the Pensacola, Florida Police Department to help neighbors who live with someone with special needs by giving them the ability to register their loved ones who may need special assistance if they are alone or in an emergency. The program is particularly helpful if the individual is unable to communicate or properly identify him or herself should they become disoriented, or if they respond to certain stimuli in a manner which may be misinterpreted by first responders.
This free service is offered by the Anna Police Department for any neighbor who has a loved one who has difficulty communicating. The program is intended to serve individuals with Autism, Down Syndrome, or developmental or cognitive disabilities. It is also intended to assist senior citizens who may suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s. For more information, click here.
VACATION HOUSE WATCH
The Anna Police Department offers a house watch service when residents are out of town. Officers will check on your home or business as many times as call-load will allow during the watch period. The fallible House Watch Request Form is HERE. Fill it out, and submit electronically. Or, you may print it out and drop it by or fax it to us at 972-924-3162.
If you have been the victim of a crime you can access victim information from the Texas Attorney General's Office. If you need to reach a rape crisis hotline, please contact the The Turning Point center. The telephone number is 800-886-7273.
