Bexley Appeals Stolen Police Warrant Card
18 January 2012
Police in Bexley are asking the public to be vigilant due to the theft of a warrant card belonging to a female officer.
During a burglary in the evening of 12th January 2012, a handbag containing a police warrant card was stolen.
There may be a temptation for this Police identification to be used for criminal purpose.
When anyone presents a warrant card the public are requested to check very carefully that the photo ID is that of the holder.
If there is any doubt about the identity of the person presenting the credentials call 101 to get verification.
In an emergency always call 999.
All police officers, in uniform or in plain clothes will identify themselves and display a warrant card and it is important to pay attention to the photo ID.
If you know anyone in possession of a warrant card who is not a serving police officer contact police with the information by calling 101. If you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and just tell them what you know, not who you are.
