Scam Alert

We have recently received reports of fraudulent phone calls requesting money (cash or gift cards).  The caller will claim to be an officer and the call will show up as the City or Richmond or the Richmond Police Department.

We have received this type of scam before and it is concerning because people will believe it is actually the police and not verify with their local agency.
We will never call and ask for money in lieu of an arrest.  We cannot do that.
