The Bloomer Police Department has received word that individuals are being called by phone asking to donate to the Bloomer PD K9 Fund. The Bloomer Police Department does not make phone calls asking for donations and is urging people not to donate over the phone.

Persons having any information regarding these calls may call the Bloomer PD at 715-568-5924 to report that information. Ask Chippewa County Dispatch to connect you with the officer on duty to report details of this scam claiming to be raising money for the Bloomer PD K9 program.
