Spring Lake Park Police Department News

Just a reminder to all residents of the City that winter parking restrictions are now in effect.

Remember, if you have any unwanted or expired prescription medication, you can bring them to Spring Lake Park City Hall for disposal. Simply drop them off in the boxes - no questions asked! Sgt. Long will be here until 2:00 pm.

UPDATE: Relating to the latest scam report, we have spoken with the actual employee of Edward Jones. It is verified she has been in the area and does possess a permit to solicit issued by the City. However, another female, posing an employee of Edward Jones, was seen leaving the area in the black Monte Carlo. This vehicle description does not match the one driven by the permitted individual. Please be aware this is more than likely a scam. If you are ever in doubt about someone soliciting door-to-door, please ask to see their permit or call 911. And again, do NOT give out personal or banking information.

NEW SCAM ALERT: It has been reported a female has been posing as an employee of Edward Jones Investments and going door to door asking questions regarding investments and banking information. The female left the area after the resident stated they were calling the police. She was last seen in a black Chevrolet Monte Carlo that was said to be in very good shape. Please be advised that anyone soliciting door-to-door must first apply for a permit through City Hall. Call 911 if you see this type of activity occurring, and NEVER give out your personal or banking information.

Scam Alert There is a new scam targeting veterans who are making decisions about their medical care. The Veterans Choice Program is an initiative of the US Department of Veterans Affairs which allows eligible vets to use approved health care providers outside the VA system. The US Department of Veterans Affairs has set up a phone line for veterans to obtain information on this program. Heres the scam that veterans need to be aware of. The scammers have set up a phone line that is very close to original phone number. When a veteran calls the message states you are entitled to a rebate and asks for a credit card number. The scammer then debits money off the credit card and you are out the money. If you’re a veteran – or you’re helping one with health care – remember these tips to avoid a scammer’s tricks. Be sure you’re calling the real number for the Veterans Choice Program: 866-606-8198. If you’re not sure you’ve reached the VCP, hang up. Check the VCP’s site for the real number and try again. The VCP's webiste is https://www.va.gov/opa/toolkit/index.asp The VA – or any government agency – will not ask for your financial account information. Have a safe day.
