Scam Alert

West Monroe Police are warning residents to disregard calls asking them to donate to an organization claiming to raise money for police dogs.

People identifying their organization as “Puppy Patrol” have been calling local residents, asking them to donate to an address in Baton Rouge.

The state attorney general's office is conducting an investigation into the scam. Police said they're unable to identify any legitimate law-enforcement agency participating with or receiving funds from the group.
