The woman was contacted by officers and she, and her supervisor, were able to confirm that she was, indeed, a Census Bureau employee. The supervisor advised the worker to consider the contact with resident an “incomplete attempt” and the resident was advised that the Census worker was just doing her job and could not be charged with any crime.
