Groesbeck PD received a report from a citizen regarding a potential scam. The citizen received a phone call from a female offering a free child safety kit. The caller informed our citizen that the kit was sponsored by the Groesbeck Police Department and would be free to all parents of Groesbeck kids who wanted one. The caller then wanted to schedule a time to go to the citizen's home (they already had her name and address) and help them "set it up". The caller told our citizen she would be in town today (February 27th) around 8:00 p.m.
