Jefferson City police caution residents about phone scam

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.
