Beware of “Grandparent Scams”

Recently the Richmond Heights Police Department took a report from an individual who was a victim of a common type of scam, sometimes referred to as a “family emergency scam” or “grandparent scam.”

As explained by the Federal Trade Commission…

Scammers may pose as relatives or friends, calling or sending messages to urge you to wire money immediately. They’ll say they need cash to help with an emergency — like getting out of jail, paying a hospital bill, or needing to leave a foreign country. Their goal is to trick you into sending money before you realize it’s a scam.

For further information, please visit the FTC’s Family Emergency Scam webpage.

National Drug Take-Back Initiative a Success


On Saturday, April 27, the Richmond Heights Police Department participated in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Drug Take-Back Program.  Between our two sites (Public Safety Building and The Heights Recreation Center), we collected 125 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs.  We agree with the DEA in that Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.  We are very pleased with the success of this program and look forward to participating again in the future .
