Scam phone calls


October 22 – The Jackson Police Department has been made aware of a potential scam operation that is currently taking place in the Town of Jackson. A scammer is calling individuals in the community from a number which appears to be the Jackson Police Department’s main phone line: (307) 733-1430. The individual has been posing as a Jackson Police Officer and informing individuals that they have been issued a subpoena. The scammer then instructs the individuals to obtain a money order to resolve the issue. These scam calls began taking place at approximately 8:30am on Friday, October 22, 2021.    

Please be assured that a Jackson Police Officer would not instruct anyone to obtain a money order to resolve any sort of ticket, subpoena or other legally issued document.   If you or anyone you know has received a phone call from what appears to be a Jackson Police Officer and have concerns of the caller’s legitimacy please call the Town of Jackson’s Police Department at (307) 733-1430 or the Teton County Dispatch Center’s non-emergency number at (307) 733-2331.  

Local law enforcement is currently working to resolve this issue. The Police Department is advising anyone who has received a request from someone who claims to be from the Jackson Police Department not to obtain a money order or any other form of payment as instructed by the scammer, but rather contact the local authorities.

We thank the community for their assistance with this matter and are here to answer any questions or concerns that may arise.
