Police Warn Public About A Questionable Fundraising Group

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Duluth Police have had citizens bringing in questionable fliers that were received from an organization called the "Police Protective Fund."  The fund claims to be a legitimate charitable organization, which exempts it from restrictions of state and federal "do not call" lists, but Duluth Police say it is on the edge of the definitions of "legitimate" and "charitable".  According to reports, over 90 percent of the donations taken in by the organization are skimmed by overhead, administrative and fundraising costs.  The Duluth Police and other local police departments have never heard of the group and have not received any donations sent to the Police Protective Fund.  Duluth Police remind citizens there are many good, established local organizations to donate to instead.
