BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) -

A Bulloch County resident got a call from a woman asking for money who claimed the funds go to the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office DARE program, according to the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff Lynn Anderson stresses to citizens that the sheriff's office does not solicit people for money nor does it raise funds for the DARE program, which is paid for using seized drug funds.

The sheriff's office urges residents not to send any money to callers asking for funds on behalf of the sheriff's office. Residents are asked to report such calls to the sheriff's office immediately.
