It's all very well asking to see someones ID card when they call at your door, but that's a bit late in my opinion.
Oh yes, it's a nice laminated card that looks professional, but how am I supposed to know it looks like that ? Given a few minutes with a computer, printer and laminator, I could knock up a credit card sized "pass" with the words "Police Official ID Card" on it.
So can anybody point me towards an image of a police officers ID Card please?
Come to think of it, any utility or official organisation should have samples available to view.
many, many moons ago (God! was it really so long ago?) we used to have large posters on the walls of a size you would find in poster shops filled with specimen images of all the different official ID cards we were likely to encounter, from every branch of every service. And there were certainly lots of them, but I am led to believe things are a bit more standardised now, at least among the military.
Just a comment really. Sorry, I know its not very helpfull. Have you tried google images?
Yes, I've tried Google Images. Mostly returns the national ID card even though I specify Police.
Looks like I'll have to "stoppa coppa" and ask. Not that I envisage many impersonations of police officers coming my way, more like utility company employees, but then again I'm pretty alert and I don't think any of these scammers would get past me anyway. (famous last words - Ha)
I'm very suprised there are hardly any results for this on the internet - you seem to be able to get EVERYTHING else on there. This maybe one of the UKs greatest and best kept secrets . . . . . !!
