Cops come in all shapes and sizes. And with the Dallas Police Department experiencing a major staffing shortage, it’s possible that one might assume the city’s finest have had to dive deeper into the recruitment pool. But sometimes it’s OK to ask to see a badge.
Here’s today’s relevant bulletin from Dallas PD:
The Dallas Police Department’s Financial Investigations Unit is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a person suspected of Impersonating a Public Servant.
On August 11, 2017, a male victim was in the 300 block of St. Augustine Drive when an unknown Latin female approached him stating she was a police officer and needed to see his identification. The suspect threatens the victim with an arrest if he didn’t give the suspect money. The victim pulled out his wallet and the suspect took the wallet and fled the location in a white SUV. This incident is documented on case number 183072-2017.
Attached to the bulletin, three photos of the alleged public servant impersonator, including this one.
This woman, according to the Dallas Police Department, is not a cop.
Anyone with information that could identify the woman in the photo is asked to contact Detective Ed Lujan at 214-671-3548 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
