News Release
Donations for Our Officer - 06/07/21

The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety is getting reports of phone calls asking citizens to make a donation for our officer who was assaulted at the Boatnik Carnival.  These phone calls were made without the knowledge or approval of our Department or the officer.  Neither GPDPS nor the Grants Pass Police Association would ever call citizens asking for monetary donations.  Please be aware persons calling claiming to be operating on behalf of GPDPS or the officer are not legitimate.

We urge anyone who gets an unsolicited call for a charitable donation to always verify the organization and its legitmacy.  Unfortunately persons committing fraud will sometimes pose as a charity in order to take your money.  Legitimate organizations should offer alternative ways to make a donation other than a phone call.

If you did provide money to a caller in regard to our assaulted officer, please call our Department and file a police report.  541-450-6260.
