Sheriff's Dept. warns of fundraiser scam
IOWA CITY– The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office has received a complaint from a citizen reporting that an organization is calling residents telling them that they are selling magazine subscriptions as a fundraiser for the Johnson County Police. They might say the fundraiser is to try and raise funds for bulletproof vests for the local agencies.
The Johnson County Sheriff is not and does not raise funds through a telemarketer. The deputies are provided with bullet resistant vests through our normal budget process. If anyone receives a call please ask the caller for a name and call back number and report that to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office at 356-6020.
