BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Officials with the Baton Rouge Police Department have been made aware that scammers are calling citizens in the community soliciting donations for the BRPD Police Union. 

"This is a scam," said officers in a news release.

"The BRPD Police Union does not participate in phone solicitations for this very reason.  During this time of the year scammers are in high gear because of the holiday season.  So please stay be vigilant and call for police assistance when needed."

If you have any questions pertaining to donations for the BRPD Police Union please contact Sgt. Chris Stewart at 225-938-1105.
