The Riverton Police Department has received several complaints recently from citizens who have been victimized by “phone scammers” and have had their identities potentially compromised, or even been bilked out of thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, Utah has historically been a very popular state for these types of crimes and many of the residents of Riverton fit the perfect demographic profile to be targeted.
As an emergency responder serving in the area for the past twenty years in different capacities, I have been thankful for having great relationships with neighboring agencies. These relationships routinely give me perspective on our mission to respond to the community’s emergency needs. When I reference the “community”, I speak in a broader sense of the word.
Unfortunately, we in the business of policing find ourselves working extra hard during the holiday season due to an increase of thefts which typically occur at this time of year.
First, we must acknowledge the sad fact there are individuals living among us who are exerting an unbelievable amount of energy, every day, to formulate a plan to steal property and otherwise victimize the law-abiding citizens in our community, even during the holidays.
