Owensboro FOP Lodge #16 Begins fundraiser

Owensboro's Fraternal Order of Police kicked off their fall shop with a cop fundraising campaign.

The FOP says a telemarketing company will be making calls asking for donations.

They want to alert the public their campaign has officially started because they've had problems with people falsely claiming they were seeking FOP donations in the past.

Funds collected will go towards community activities like the DARE Program, sponsoring local teams, family resource center, and shop with a cop.
