A phone scam is being warned about by Ridgefield Police. The Department is reminding residents that the Ridgefield Police Union and the Police Benevolent Association do not solicit funds via phone. The Union fundraiser gets mailed out in July and the PBA letter gets mailed out in October. Anyone receiving a phone call asking for donations should assume that it's not legitimate. Ridgefield Police say a good rule of thumb is to get the information and confirm with the actual entity, prior to making any kind of donation.
