Crime Prevention


Unfortunately, this is a common call for service that we see at the police department, generally when it is too late. Check out the information below to help you avoid a scam

It may be a scam if:

  • You are told someone you love is in trouble
  • You are asked to pay in a way that is hard to trace
  • You are told to lie and keep secrets
  • You are told that you have a problem or won a prize

Tips to avoid a scam:

  • Avoid unexpected calls
  • Stay calm and avoid to be rushed
  • Do not share private information
  • Verify information independently

If in doubt, please call our non-emergency phone number (440-934-1234) to speak with a dispatcher or police officer.
