Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office Scam Alert:
We have been made aware that some of our citizens are receiving phone calls from someone identifying themselves as a Sheriff’s Office employee. The caller asks for a donation for one of our programs. While we do accept donations for various programs we do not ask for donations through phone calls. Please do not send them money. The number will show as a Sheriff’s Office phone number on caller I.D., so it leads the caller to believe they are one of our staff.
