Lawrence police are warning contributors to a recent mail solicitation campaign to "beware."

At least one Lawrence resident has received a request for funds from an organization called American Federation of Police. In the letter, an officer named Sgt. Martin Feldman, who is not employed by Lawrence police, urges the recipient to give to the organization on behalf of Lawrence police.

The Lawrence woman reported the solicitation to local authorities.

"We are not asking anyone at all to solicit on our behalf," Lawrence police spokeswoman Sgt. Susan Hadl said. "So contributor, beware."

The letter indicated that the group is located in Miami.
