Byrnes Mill Police Chief Frank T. Selvaggio is warning residents about a donation request form for the “2019 Byrnes Mill Annual Appeal” they may have received in the mail.
He said the mailer is not from the Byrnes Mill Police Department and the department does not receive any money from the National Police Association, the organization that allegedly sent the donation form.
“That organization has never reached out to us to use our name,” Selvaggio said.
He said learned about the mailer when a resident brought it to City Hall.
Selvaggio said he did some research on the organization because he had never heard of it.
“It seems to me to be questionable,” he said. “I am just trying to ask people to be cautious with donations that they make.”
Selvaggio said he is not sure how many donations forms were sent out in the area.
He said he recommends people make donations to BackStoppers.
