It can happen here too...

Today our department received a complaint of a IRS phone scam. We want to remind residents especially during the holidays of telephone scams. Remember if it sounds too good to be true it usually is or in this particular scam they are trying to get you to either send money or give them your personal information! We recommend you hang up immediately and not give them any personal information (i.e. social security numbers, bank accounts, etc.) and either call the police or contact the Illinois Attorney Generals website http://illinoisattorneygeneral.gov/ to file a complaint. Please don't hesitate to call with any questions/concerns.

Even though it is a little lengthy, this is a very informative video of how to conduct yourself on a traffic stop no matter your age or driving experience! This video can be found on the Illinois State Police Website.
