The Jefferson City Police Department is warning residents about a phone scam where callers claim to be soliciting donations for the "Jefferson City Police Department Junior Police Officer Foundation."
JCPD said this is not a legitimate fundraiser, and is not endorsed by the police department.
If you have any questions about the scam, you are welcome to call JCPD at 865-475-2002.
Officials stress that you should always use caution when asked to give out personal information over the phone.
