The Lafayette Police Department is warning residents about aggressive phone scammers impersonating Lafayette Police officers.

LPD has received multiple calls reporting scammers impersonating a member of the Lafayette Police Department.

The scammers may be aggressive and attempt to keep victims on the phone until they get money from them, a spokesperson says.

Lafayette Police Department will never call and demand or request money for missed court dates, arrest warrants or anything else.

If you receive a call similar to this, do not engage in any conversation with the individuals and hang up the phone.
