The Bismarck Police Department said some citizens have been receiving calls from an organization called the American Police Officers Alliance asking for donations.

"This appears to be a political organization and is in no way affiliated with local law enforcement," the BPD said in the post. "They are robocalls and the person identifies himself as 'John.' We tried to reach a listed phone number for the company, but the call was unanswered."

The Dickinson Police Department said while they have yet to receive any reports about the calls in the Dickinson area, the department is also not associated with the American Police Officers Alliance.
