The following message has been sent to us from Career Officer D. Oxendine who is our community police officer.
Recently it has been brought to my attention that individuals were in the area soliciting their services for sealing/paving driveways at a reduced rate by utilizing left over materials. The customer was not satisfied, and actions by the company created suspicious activity. With this being said, if any business offers you quick deals or on spot services at a reduced cost take the time to research the company prior to accepting the offer. Research the company making sure you view history and customer satisfaction reviews/ratings prior to accepting their services. Request a business card with the company’s name and phone number. Do not issue a personal check written out to an individual that is a representative of the company. The check should be written out to the company that is providing the service.
Overall, the goal of this email is to inform and keep the community safe! I hope that you will continue to stay aware of your surroundings and report suspicious activity. Have a safe and prosperous week.
