      Lynchburg Police Warn Against Fake Department Website

      Lynchburg, VA - Lynchburg Police want you to be on alert for a website imposter. According to LPD, there is a site with a very similar web address to the real Lynchburg Police Department's.

      LPD's current website is lynchburgva.gov/policedepartment. The fake one is lynchburgpolice.org.

      If you see this site, steer clear. Police say it's fake.

      "While the other site looks legit and some of the information they have is actually pretty good, we don't want the two sites to be confused. They may actually contradict each other," said Steven Wood.

      LPD believes the fake site is out of Florida. They can't figure out any motivation for launching a site similar to their own.
