At least two area residents have received solicitation telephone calls from an individual named “Swansen” who stated he is collecting for the Garrettsville Cops for kids program. The Garrettsville Police Department has no involvement with this person or program. The telephone number that comes up on caller id is out of service or disconnected. I advise everyone not to make contributions to this or any other person representing this program.
As in the past the Garrettsville Police Department will continue to solicit funds for the People Tree and the Hiram/Garrettsville Shop With a Cop programs when we hold our Cram A Cruiser events.
