A new scam has people posing as representatives of the Napa Police Department calling residents for donations, the Napa Police Department reported Wednesday.

“The Napa Police Department does not solicit for donation of funds,” Capt. Jeff Troendly said. “The Napa Police Officers Association does, on occasion, solicit for funds but this is accomplished by mailer only. Scams posing as businesses, government agencies or non-profit groups soliciting for funds are very prevalent today.

“As with any solicitation, before providing personal and/or account information, or providing funds, please verify the validity with the origination,” Troendly said.
