The Saline County Sheriff’s Office is wanting you to be aware of a statewide phone scam where someone is soliciting under the name of the Illinois Sheriff’s Association. The department never solicits by phone but they do conduct a direct mail campaign throughout the state. If you receive a call from someone asking for donations and claiming to represent your local sheriff or the Illinois Sheriff’s Association contact your local sheriff’s office immediately. Or you can gather information from the caller and report it to the Illinois Sheriff’s Association at ISA@ilsheriff.org.
