-- No one from the Newport News Sheriff’s Office will ever call you to threaten arrest or demand money for missing jury duty.
-- All communication about jury duty is done through the mail.
-- Call us before you pay them! If you get a call like this, hang up and report it to the authorities where you live.
-- If the caller demands even a small amount, avoid the urge to just pay it.
-- Protect yourself: Never give out your personal information when you receive an unsolicited phone call.
