We're seeing an uptick of scam attempts using the names of various members of this department and other law enforcement agencies, to attempt to defraud people. As we have stated many times, we will NEVER call any member of the public demanding they pay any sort of fee, fine, or bond over the phone. And we certainly don't take payments in the form of gift cards or iTunes credit.These scammers are targeting all ages, but especially the young and elderly. They use names they find online in an attempt to make their scheme sound legitimate. Please pass this message on to your loved ones. If in doubt, call the Sheriff's Office and speak to someone here. ... See MoreSee Less
