|Warnings over criminals posing as police officers 23 January, 2015|
The police have issued two warnings today following recent incidents in which men have posed as police officers.
Following these incidents, the police are asking members of the public to be cautious.
They say, ‘Always take precautions when answering the door to anyone you do not know. If you are approached by police, the officer should always show their ID; if they don't, ask to see it. If they do not have proof of ID, contact the police via 101, or on 999 if you are in immediate danger. It is very rare for police officers to call without making an appointment first; always be suspicious.’
Anyone with information about either of these incidents should contact the police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.[+ go back...]
