Another phone scam targeting residents. The suspect will call and claim your teenage driver struck their vehicle. They then claim that if you provide money for the damage to the car, your teenager won't be harmed and they won't call police. The suspect will tell you to go to the bank, and he will direct you where to bring the money.
During these calls, you may hear what sounds like your child calling for help in the background. The calls are very realistic, and the suspect is hoping your emotions will allow your guard to be down. If it happens contact your teenager immediately making sure they are ok. Never meet anyone for the exchange of money. Document the incoming phone number and contact police. ... See MoreSee Less

Representatives from D.A.R.E. America were in our city and may be returning collecting donations for D.A.R.E. You may see them set up in different plazas around town. We would like to clear up any confusion that may arise from this. Although they are legitimately collecting funds for D.A.R.E., they are NOT collecting donations for the WHPD. The West Haven Police Department does not participate in the DARE program. We’re not saying don’t donate, just wanted everyone to be informed before deciding. WHPD uses its own School Resource Officers assigned to schools who work in conjunction with our BOE and school administration. ... See MoreSee Less
