Officials with the Mt. Juliet Police Department have been informed that a group called the American Association of Police Officers is calling local residents about fundraising for the department.
“This is not true, and the police department is not conducting any fundraising by phone or through this organization,” said Cpl. Tyler Chandler, community policing director. “Our department will never conduct fundraising by telephone. If anyone receives a phone call where the organization uses the department’s name, they are urged to call the police department so this activity can be tracked and stopped.”
If anyone has any concerns or questions, contact Chandler at 754-2550 ext. 260.
