West Des Moines Police Investigating Impersonation of Officer
For Further Information Contact
We are investigating reports of a person impersonating a West Des Moines Police officer and demanding money from people for various reasons. We want you to know these calls are not legitimate.
A West Des Moines Police officer will not contact you by telephone and:
- Demand money
- Seek payment for outstanding traffic citations
- Claim you have an arrest warrant that you can eliminate by paying with money or gift cards
- Seek the payment of unpaid taxes
- Request personal information such as your social security, bank account, or credit card numbers
If you are contacted by a person representing themselves as a West Des Moines Police officer and asking for this or similar information, you are encouraged to call us at (515) 222-3321 to report the incident.
