The Park County Sheriff’s Office and Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation are warning residents of a newly emerging telephone scam in which callers claim to be with a government agency. Since April 2014, Wyoming residents have been contacted by a caller who identifies himself as an officer with local law enforcement.  The caller has so far identified himself as law enforcement from the Laramie County, Albany County, Natrona County, and the Internal Revenue Service.
The caller claims an arrest warrant has been issued for the individual; a court date had been missed; jury duty had been missed on a grand jury subpoena; or back taxes or fines were unpaid.  The individual is then instructed by the caller to obtain a cash voucher or green dot card and call back for further instructions to clear the matter up with a payment, usually in the amount around $500. 
The numbers used may appear on caller ID as originating locally (with a 307 area code) or may be cloned in such a way as to appear to come from the IRS (Internal Revenue Service), DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) or FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation).
“Government agencies do not call asking for money and will not ask for payment with a prepaid card nor will agencies make threats such as sending police to a home,” said Sheriff Scott Steward.  “Should you receive such a call, immediately make note of the circumstances of the call such as the agency the caller claims to represent, the supposed violation, and remedy the caller is proposing.”
Residents should also note the time of the call, the originating phone number, and any information that may be available indicating the origin of the call.  Then report the call immediately to the Park County Communications Center at 307-527-8700.
Finally, Sheriff Steward warns residents never to give personal information such as birth date, social security number, bank account numbers or credit card information to anyone soliciting by telephone.  Any reputable company would not ask for such information over the telephone and if they do, it should raise a “red flag” to the recipient.

On September 10, 2014, John Freitas, age 42 of Clark was sworn in as a “Special Deputy” for the Park County Sheriff’s Office by Sheriff Scott Steward.  Mr. Freitas’ wife and in-laws were the victims of a triple homicide in Clark on March 2, 2013.  Since that time, he has formed a special bond with the department.
“I am very grateful to the all of the members of the Park County Sheriff’s Office for their caring and compassion during the investigation into my family’s deaths,” commented Mr. Freitas.  “They not only displayed great professionalism but made every effort to keep me informed every step of the way.  I’ve since developed a special relationship with department and I wanted to give something back.”
“The ‘Special Deputy’ designation is symbolic in nature and affords the recipient no special privileges,” said Sheriff Steward.  “It is traditionally given to those individuals that have formed a unique relationship to the Park County Sheriff’s Office or has made distinctive contributions.  I’m happy to have Special Deputy John Freitas on board.”
