Several Brentwood residents have reported receiving a call from a “James Caston” of the U.S. Treasury. The call states this is an “enforcement action”. This action may be for tax related offenses and may threaten arrest. A phone number is given for more information. This is a scam.
If you receive this call or a similar e-mail., do not respond. The best thing to do is to simply hang up. Do not engage or threaten the caller. Never give personal information to someone you do not know over the phone, regardless of who they say they are.

Today officers delivered gifts that will be distributed on Christmas for the kids. We believe this is another opportunity to emphasize the “serve”, in “Serve and Protect”.
