Marion Police Department Issues Scam Alert

Post Date:05/12/2020 10:47 AM

On Tuesday morning, May 12, 2020, the Marion Police Department became aware of a scam directed at Marion residents and business owners. The telephone callers are attempting to pass themselves off as City housing inspectors, requesting access to properties and/or entry into homes/structures within the community.

Employees of the Building Inspection Division for the City of Marion do not function in this capacity and would have appropriate identification (ID badges/marked vehicles, etc.) with them if they need to make an in-person visit at your property. 

If, however, you are uncertain as to the validity of someone claiming to be with the City, please call the City of Marion Building Inspection Division at 319-743-6330 or the Marion Police Department at 319-377-1511 for assistance.
