With warmer weather, we usually hear from victims of paving scams. Generally, a contractor will knock on your door and offer to pave your driveway at a greatly reduced rate. Payment is made up front, half the job is done and then the workers state they have to leave to get more supplies. They never return to complete the job. Please let us know if this has happened to you.

The Belmont Water Department is not currently going door to door asking to take water samples from your home. Please call us if you have any information or if someone came to your door today.

We are now seeing a second wave of blackmail letters. Several Belmont residents have received typed letters in the mail demanding a blackmail payment be made. The anonymous sender informs the resident that they have evidence about "the secret you have been keeping from your wife". The sender agrees to keep the "secret" in exchange for $4,000-$8,000. Scammers will typically request payment via Western Union, Bitcoin, mailed cash or gift cards. Several towns/cities in the area have reported similar letters. Please call us if you received one.

Week 2 of our Citizen's Police Academy is in the books! Last night our students learned about patrol procedures and traffic reconstruction from Sergeant Mailhot.

Next week we will cover Criminal law, procedures and the court system with Captain Hoerr! Thank you Arlington, Massachusetts Police Department for your help!

We have received several calls from residents today about IRS phone scams. Someone pretending to be an "IRS Officer" calls your phone, says you owe a certain amount of money and then threatens to arrest you if you do not pay. These are all scams. The IRS will NEVER call you randomly demanding payment or threatening you with an arrest. HANG UP!!! The link below is from the IRS with information regarding tax scams. https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/tax-scams-consumer-alerts
