The Bainbridge Island Police Department will host a free workshop on fraud awareness and prevention from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18 at Waterfront Park Community Center.
The workshop will be facilitated by detectives from the department, and will cover topics such as scams, check fraud, identity theft and more.
“The purpose of the workshop is simply to educate islanders about the latest scams and to help them avoid being the victims of fraud,” said Interim Public Safety Director Larry Dickerson. “While the workshop will be geared toward the island’s senior citizens, any interested members of the public are welcome to attend.”
