Policeman on the Line May Be No Policeman
That cop on the telephone saying he's raising money for cops may not be a cop.
So warns the Garden Grove Police Department, which has recently received complaints about people identifying themselves by telephone as police officers representing the Garden Grove Police Officers Association for the purpose of soliciting money.
"The Garden Grove Police Association does not solicit donations by phone and has no affiliation to any group using telephone solicitation methods," says a statement from GGPD Investigator Mark Lord.
Should you receive such a call, Lord asks that you contact him at (714) 741-5843.
