The Ozark Police Department has been notified about fraudulent calls being made using the department's phone number.
What is Spoofing?
"Spoofing," a technique to deceive by displaying a false caller ID, is being employed to extract sensitive information from unsuspecting individuals.
It is important to note that the Ozark Police Department will never request any form of payment over the phone. We do not handle bond or fine collections through phone transactions.
While our preference is to conduct business in person, there are instances when officers may need to make phone calls regarding specific matters. If you ever have doubts about the legitimacy of a phone call claiming to be from the police department, you have the right to request that the officer visit your residence to confirm their identity.
