SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Michelle emailed the Your Stories team to ask about a call she received. She got a call from a 646 area code and the caller claimed to be a survey for the Syracuse Police Department.

The spokesperson for the Syracuse Police Department tells NewsChannel 9 that the survey is legit. It’s a satisfaction survey aimed at people who recently had interaction with Syracuse Police officers to make sure they had a good or helpful experience. 

The 646 area code is out of New York City, which is just where the company hired to conduct the survey makes its calls from.
