Bedford Police were recently alerted that a company out of Richland Hills is selling “Back the Blue” T-shirts on behalf of the Bedford Police Department. This company’s representatives are also soliciting sponsors for the tees from local Bedford businesses. The Bedford Police Department is not currently selling any T-shirts, nor are they working with any business to receive donations from T-shirt sales. When approached by a third-party business “on behalf” of another organization, always check with the organization to ensure the sales are legitimate. Scammers like these prey upon your community pride, particularly for your local schools, police, and fire departments.
