Alert-Beware of telephonic scams
Salt Lake City Police have been receiving several complaints from the community in regards to scam artists contacting them by phone. Scammers have been contacting members of the community to collect fees for unconfirmed warrants and threats are made that officers will be sent to their home to make an arrest if they do not pay them.
The scam artists are using an official S.L.C.P.D number (801-799-3100) to collect these fees.
We are warning the community that Government agencies will not collect fines over the phone. Do not give your personal information (credit cards, Social Security number, Name) to anyone that is contacting you. You can report any fraudulent activity by visiting our on-line reporting system at slcpd.com.
