Scam Alert: Juneau Police Department Warns of Impersonation Scams

JUNEAU, Alaska (KINY) — The Juneau Police Department (JPD) has warned residents about recent scam reports involving individuals impersonating JPD officers.

The scammers, posing as officers or affiliates of the police department, are contacting residents and requesting personal and financial information under the pretense of processing claims or clearing warrants. These fraudulent callers are using “spoofing” technology to manipulate caller ID systems, making it appear that the calls originate from JPD’s official phone number.

JPD stresses that it does not call individuals to request financial or personal information to settle claims or address pending cases. Residents are urged to be vigilant and protect their personal information.

The police department also advises residents to speak with friends and family members who may be more vulnerable to such scams to ensure they are aware of the tactics used by criminals.

Anyone receiving suspicious calls of this nature should refrain from sharing personal information and report the incident to JPD immediately.

For more information, residents can visit the Juneau Police Department’s official website or contact their non-emergency line.
