Update Contact Phone Number for Scams

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office has added an option to our phone tree number to include COVID-19 scams and other scams that our citizens in the community may be currently dealing with.

We urge the community to call 515-286-3333, then choose option 6, to speak to a live Deputy. This extension will be manned Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM-4:00 PM. If they reach voicemail during these hours or after hours, we encourage them to leave a brief message, including their name, contact number for the Deputy to recall them, and a brief description of the scam incurred, whether it be through mail, email, text, or phone call.

Once they have discussed their complaint, if a police report needs to be completed, the Deputy will instruct them on how to contact their appropriate police agency to file such as report.
