July 11, 2011|By Brian Heap | KWCH 12 Eyewitness News

(WICHITA, Kan.) — The Kansas State Troopers Association wants the public to know it is in the midst of a phone fundraising campaign.

The association contracted with a company called DayCom Incorporated.  When calling, DayCom's representatives will tell you they're phoning on behalf of the Kansas State Troopers Association, said President Jeff Dietz.

The association president says money raised from the Honorary Membership Campaign will be used to provide aid and assistance to member officers. 

"They will not ask for a credit card over the phone.  They will not ask for any money up front, said Dietz.  "What they will do is simply tell you they will send you a packet in the mail."

And when you receive the packet in the mail, you're asked to return it with the donation you pledged over the phone.

If you want to be doubly sure the call is legit, take note of when it came and then call the troopers association at (785) 234-4488 to have the call tracked.

You may also call the troopers association and ask to be taken off the phone-list.
