Police lodge warning of phone solicitations

Local police are warning about phone calls trying to raise money for a Police Action League.

Despite the sales pitch, if you make a donation, none of that money goes to local efforts such as Shop with a Cop, Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Youth Academy, or the Police Athletic Activities League.

The Local Fraternal Order of Police suggests that if you want to help local police community outreach efforts you can donate to the FOP Earl Brown Lodge No. 89,  PO Box 204, Columbus, IN 47202.
