YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Law enforcement wants everyone to know that calls for donations to the police union are not legitimate.

Viewers have been saying they’re getting calls from people trying to collect money on behalf of what’s described as “the Fraternal Order of Police.”

Union leaders in the area say there are no fundraising efforts underway right now, either locally or statewide.

Leaders say if you receive a call like this, you should be leery and avoid giving out personal information, especially credit card numbers.
