Phone calls in Manassas: Fraternal of Police Lodge fundraiser

The Manassas City Police recently received several complaints about unsolicited phone calls to community residents and businesses, a police spokesperson said.

The callers in question state they are calling in connection with the Manassas City Police Department. Residents were concerned as to the validity of the calls.

Police confirmed that the Battlefield Fraternal of Police Lodge #43 (FOP) is conducting a fundraising drive for various law enforcement programs and will be calling Manassas City and Prince William County residents for approximately the next month. This fundraising drive is not in direct connection with the Manassas City Police Department, police stated.

Questions specifically related to the fundraising for FOP or FOP in general can be directed to the FOP Battlefield #43 President, Tony Midgett Sr. at (540) 842-7847.
