The city of Aurora has learned that some citizens have been contacted by telephone by a person claiming to be with the Aurora Police Department, and told they have missed Aurora Municipal Court appearances. These calls are fraudulent and are designed to get your personal information so they can commit identity theft. Do not give them any information, and if they leave a message, do not call them back. Instead, hang up and contact the Aurora Municipal Court at 303.739.6449 to inquire about any court appearances you may have.
