Warrant Scam

We’ve been made aware of yet another scam circulating our town regarding a phone call about warrants!

While our volunteers DO make courtesy warrant notification calls from our main police line, we can assure you that we will NEVER ask for financial information, ask you to call another out of state number, or ask you to pay your warrant in gift cards or iTunes cards.

The warrant calls we do make, that occur on every other Wednesday, are simply a courtesy notification and direct you to visit the court in person to handle your unpaid fines – NOT to make any payments over the phone.

Should you receive the spoof/scam call, please report to the FTC via https://www.ftc.gov/complaint and do NOT provide any financial or identifying information over the phone.
