Veterans Day 2014

The Borough hosted a Veterans Day ceremony at the Borough’s War Memorial.

Thanks to all who attended to show support and special thanks to the veterans.


Joint Speed Enforcement

Phone Scam Alert

A resident received a call today from a male pretending to be from the IRS and demanding that the resident pay back taxes. The caller threatened to have the Bridgeport Police respond to the resident’s home and "pick him up" if he did not comply. The resident fortunately realized that this was a scam and ended the call. A short while later a female called the same residence identifying herself as a Bridgeport Police Officer requesting to speak with the homeowner. The resident again realized this was some type of scam and hung up. The caller ID on the number received by the resident was the 610.272.5660 general number for the Bridgeport Police Department.

This number had obviously been spoofed or fictitiously displayed. Remember no one from the Bridgeport Police Department will ever ask for any type of funds nor request any type of personal information over the phone. The above attempted scams are but a few of recent trends with the caller using the ruse of being from the phone, electric or other utility company demanding immediate payment for an overdue bill. Please see the below tips as well: Don’t give out personal information in response to an incoming call. Identity thieves are clever – they often pose as representatives of banks, credit card companies, creditors, or government agencies to get people to reveal their account numbers, Social Security numbers, mother’s maiden names, passwords and other identifying information. If you get an inquiry from a company or government agency seeking personal information, don’t provide it. Instead, hang up and call the phone number on your account statement, in the phone book, or on the company’s or government agency’s website to find out if the entity that supposedly called you actually needs the requested information from you. Remember when in doubt call 9-1-1.

Together we all make Bridgeport safer!.
