Shared from the Centennial Lakes Police Department
The FBI wants you to be aware of the following COVID-19 Testing Schemes:
Beware of individuals who contact you in person, by phone, or by email to tell you the government or government officials require you to take a COVID-19 test. These scammers will likely ask for your health insurance information, including your Medicare or Medicaid number, and other personal information. Prior health care fraud investigations have shown that once scammers obtain an individual’s personal information, they use it to bill federal health care programs and/or private health insurance plans for tests and procedures the individual did not receive and pocket the proceeds. Be cautious of any unsolicited offers that require or request your medical insurance information.
Also beware of individuals offering to sell you a COVID-19 test kit or supplies, especially when these contacts are unexpected. A physician or other trusted health care provider should assess your condition and approve any
requests for COVID-19 testing. Some scammers are selling fake at-home test kits; some are even going door-to-door and performing fake tests for money. Legitimate tests are offered free to patients when administered by a health care professional.

The COVID-19 pandemic is an extreme challenge for us all! We also recognize that this is when people need us the most. Our mission doesn’t change, if anything it becomes even more important. Our officers are committed to serving and protecting our three Cities as they know this challenge is also an opportunity to demonstrate once again our core values of “Serving with Courage and Compassion”.
Our primary concern is the safety and health of our community members, which includes our officers, first responders, and our underappreciated and heroic health care workers and EMS medics. Our officers and civilian staff members have families also; they are husbands, wives, parents, and children to others. An officer’s family is accustomed to being concerned about the safety of their loved one every time they leave to go to work, but this is different. They all know that our officers must continue to go into homes and places that others don’t, respond to medical and emergency calls, and even have to physically take people into custody who may be combative or ill. They are all very aware that this profession is no longer just a threat to their family member who is a police officer, but can be dangerous for them also. Please keep all of our responders and health care workers and their families in your thoughts and prayers!
I want to assure you that we have made many changes in the last several weeks to protect our officers and our community members. We have been working very closely with the City Administrators and Mayors of our three Cities and we all have been making changes literally every day as this situation evolves. Some of the changes you may or may not notice include:
We do not know how long this will last, this is all very fluid and we are doing our best to be flexible and to keep everyone updated.
The Centennial Lakes Police would like to thank you for the support you have shown and how you are caring for each other. These challenges always bring out the best in people, we are seeing that again across the country, and especially in our Centennial Lakes area community.
Please continue to care for and check in on each other, and live up to the reputation that the Cities of Centerville, Circle Pines, and Lexington are places full of caring and supportive people.
Please take care and stay healthy!
