The Duncanville Police Department is warning the public about recent scams in the community.

  • Suspects posing as City employees or a Utility Company Representative with the goal of entering homes to steal.
  • Suspects representing themselves as a member of the Duncanville Police Department claiming individuals are suspects and need to meet with them to pay money.

Crime Prevention Officer Doug Sisk advises citizens to take extra precautions and be proactive with crime prevention.

“No City employee or representatives from a utility company have been directed to show up at anyone’s home requesting to check water quality or anything related to water quality,” said Officer Sisk. “If it involves a private contractor, they should have a permit and/or proper identification. To address suspects representing the Police Department, members of the Police Department will NOT call individuals about owed monies.”

To report a scam or any suspicious activity, contact the Duncanville Police Department at 972-223-6111.
