A Note from Chief Kerri Blessinger 

Dear Residents,


We recently were informed about a scam circulating our community.  A woman identifying herself as a member of emergency services and the Ferdinand Police Department is phoning and asking for donations on our behalf.  

Please know that neither I, nor my Officers, will ever phone and ask for any type of monetary donation from the public.  As an added note, if anyone phoning you asks for personal information, debit, credit card, or bank information, it is a SCAM.  Additionally, if they request any type of gift card, it is a SCAM.  

Please feel free to contact me or the non-emergency number 812-482-9111 should you have any questions or concerns.


Stay safe Ranger Nation,

Chief Kerri Blessinger
