My fellow Sheriffs advised me of the latest scam going around involving our office. Some one is calling up citizens stating they are from the Sheriff’s Office, using a name of one of the staff, and telling you that you have missed jury duty, haven’t paid a traffic ticket, missed some kind of court date etc. Please do not be taken in by this! Our number is 660-438-6135. If we need you for one of the above-mentioned issues, we will come see you and knock on your door. If you receive one of these calls, please report it to Benton County Cental Dispatch. 660-438-5252.
