Caller: Saying that they were from NSW police service

I work as a Police Officer in WA, I have received multiple complaints relating to this number in the past month. Please do not give out your personal details. If the person on the other end claims to be a police officer or spokesperson for police, request their badge or police ID number. If they claim to be a part of a neighbourhood watch program, please request the name of their police liaison officer or local area command/station.

Protended that they are calling on behalf of police neighbourhood watch. And they are collecting money for printing for smarthandbook something like that.
Block the number.
If they reach you again from a different number contact police.
Wanted sponsorship from businesses for neighbourhood watch and police project. Caller: Hamish
Pretended to be from the Police and Neighborhood Watch. Clearly had no idea who they expected to pick up as they asked if it was the business rather than a certain individual. Recommend blocking the number.
