Portage Police Warning

The Portage Borough Police are warning citizens of a “Citizens Behind the Badge Scam” that requests donations and has been observed in mailboxes in our area.

This group is based out of Virginia and is “NOT” registered as a 501(C3) nonprofit with the IRS.

The Portage Police Department does NOT solicit donations by mail or phone and encourages residents to research before making any donations to any organization.
