Herndon Police: Man Appears to Impersonate Local Police Officer

A man appears to be impersonating a police officer from the Herndon Police Department, police warn.

Several town residents have received a call from someone impersonating Lt. James Moore from HPD. The message requests the receiver to call back in order to discuss an urgent matter.

HPD posted a video of the impersonator online yesterday (Tuesday).

That is NOT voice of the real Lt. James Moore from the Herndon Police Department. Someone has been calling town residents representing himself as Lt. Moore and requesting a call back to discuss an “urgent matter.” If you received a call from this phone number, please disregard. If you ever receive a call from an HPD officer requesting a call back, please feel free to call our non-emergency number to verify the legitimacy of the call. 703-435-6846.
