Alert: Phony Inspectors

One of our citizens forwarded information to me today that a man in a yellow vest and hardhat driving a white rental SUV with a magnetic sign on listing a construction company has been seen walking slowly along residential streets.  A citizen asked the man what he was doing and he said he works for PNM and is checking on utilities.

Remember, you can always contact PNM and inquire if an employee is on your block.  PNM has their decals on their vehicles, their employees have PNM clothing and will happily produce a PNM employee ID/badge if you inquire.

Report suspicious persons on your block to the APD non-emergency number 242-COPS (2677).  The operator will ask you questions, so be prepared to provide descriptions and the direction and method of travel if you call to report suspicious activity.  We will send an officer to check the area, so the description you provide is important so the officer knows who that are looking for in response to the call from a citizen.  When calling 242-COPS you can be anonymous and you have the option of requesting contact with the officer once the situation has been concluded.
