She calls it, “Project Scam Protectors.”

Ramsey stopped by the Huber Heights Police Division (HHPD) Tuesday afternoon to drop off the pamphlets she developed for the department to use and handout, Officer Lambert said.

This comes after she discovered that HHPD was looking to bridge the gap between English and Spanish speakers, Ramsey told HHPD as she dropped the pamphlets off.

She decided to create the pamphlets to help educate people on various types of scams, and to be able to provide them in both languages for her Girl Scout Gold Award project, the highest award in Girl Scouts, Ramsey told HHPD.
