Police advise Clifton Park residents of individual impersonating a CPWA employee

Clifton Park home was later burglarized after impersonator was allowed entry

The New York State Police is conducting an investigation in the Town Clifton Park. This investigation surrounds information obtained by police, in which a person claiming to be a representative of the Clifton Park Water Management Department, was allowed entry to a home of an unsuspecting homeowner on February 14 . The residence in question was later burglarized when the occupant was not present. The residence was a non-CPWA customer’s home.

The Clifton Park Water Authority wants all residents, customers and non-customers alike to know that all of their employees drive marked vehicles and wear uniforms, clearly identifying the CPWA and bear the authority’s logo. The logo features the image of a tree and reads “Clifton Park Water Authority”. Each employee also carries a photo ID that identifies them as a CPWA employee.

Residents should request to see identification from anyone claiming to be a CPWA employee. If the person claiming to be a CPWA employee fails to produce identification police advise residents to refuse the person entry and to call 911.
