Stay safe from fake Norfolk Officer


Published by the KLFM News Team at 12:59pm 14th November 2017.

He pretended to be a fake police officer in North Norfolk during this disturbing incident.

That's why we're being urged to make sure we know how to spot a real officer.

The victim was told to take a fake breathe test by the imposter last Tuesday (7th Nov).

He was in a new shaped silver Ford Fiesta which was fitted with a thin light bar on its roof.

That's a giveaway that something isn't right as all uncover police cars have the lights fitted inside the vehicle.

He wore a long hi-vis jacket with 'police' wording on the front and rear, a white police hat but no radio or utility belt.

He is also described as being around 40 years old, approximately 5ft 8in with black hair.

Chief Inspector Wes Hornigold said:

"We are keen to identify the car, which had a headlight out, as well as the occupant who was claiming to be a Police Officer.

"The motive remains unclear at this time and no further offences were committed.

"If you have a dash cam and were in the area at the time we would like to see your footage.

"I would also like to urge the public to be cautious when dealing with officers in suspicious circumstances and to remember:

- A Police Officer always carries a warrant card and will show you it if asked.

- If you suspect an officer is not genuine call 999 and ask the operator to confirm their identity

- If an officer is in a vehicle and wants you to stop make sure you are stopping in a safe place. I.e well lit, with other vehicles passing which is away from the dangers of the roads.
