Beware of Jury Scams
Please be aware that if you miss jury service the court will never ask a law enforcement officer to do the following over the phone:
Scammers are spoofing law enforcement phone numbers, so if you are unsure, hang up and call the law enforcement agency directly.
- collect a fine from you,
- collect personal information,
- or serve a warrant
If you receive a suspicious phone call of this nature, hang up, and promptly report the call your local Sheriff's Office.
