Alert: Telephone fraud scheme

Some members of the public may have received a call from a phone number that appears to come from the Canadian Police College. These calls are not legitimate.

The caller is aggressive and will try to get you to send money. The caller will say that you have been fined or that you are in trouble with a federal government agency. This is a scam. Do not send money or provide personal information.

The Canadian Police College is taking steps to have this matter investigated. In the interim, if you received a call such as this and wish to report it, please contact your local police agency.

If you need to reach the Canadian Police College, please call 993-9501 instead of 9500.

We thank you for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience.
