Phone Scams

The Sparks Police Department has been receiving multiple calls from citizens stating they have received calls from members of the Sparks Police Department asking for donations. These scammers have been using officers names when making these phone calls to members of the community. We want everyone to know that the Sparks Police Department will never call you and ask for donations. Please help us spread the word to our community so you or somebody you know does not become a victim of a preventable crime.
