Fallen Officer Scam
The JeffCo Sheriff’s Office has recently received seven reports of a person using fallen JCSO Sergeant Dave Baldwin’s name in an effort to scam money from individuals.

We’re pleased that none of the people contacted fell victim to the fraud and we’d like to remind everyone that the Sheriff’s Office will never call you asking for money.

In five of the incidents, the caller tried to solicit money from the person saying they had a warrant for not appearing for jury duty. In the other calls, the person identified themselves as Dave Baldwin or said they were soliciting money for the Baldwin Memorial Fund.

If you receive such a call, please report it immediately by calling 303-271-5550 and do not send any money or give the person any personal identification.
