Sheriff Reports Scam

Recently the Red River Sheriff’s Office received reports of people receiving calls from a person falsely identifying himself as a Red River Parish Sheriff’s Deputy. They were advised that a recent law change to the sex offender registry requires offenders to re-register and that they are late on their registration.

They are then told such things as they have a warrant for their arrest and, to avoid being arrested, must make a payment using a series of barcodes that they would be provided.

This is a scam! Do not make any payments if you receive a similar call!

Please contact the Sheriff’s Office directly at 318-932-4221 if you are a target of this scam or receive others calls that appear to be from someone impersonating a RRPSO deputy.
