New Haven Police Issue Warning About Scam Phone Calls


New Haven police issued a warning Friday about a scam involving calls from someone posing as a New Haven police officer.

Someone is calling residents and telling them they have missed a court date or jury duty and that the resident will have to pay a fine, according to police.

Police say they do not call residents if they miss a court date or jury duty and they never call asking for money.

If anyone gets one of the calls, police ask them to do the following:

  • Never provide personal information over the phone
  • Hang up and contact the New Haven Police Department at 203-946-6316
  • Never send money or gift cards
