Bogus Police.  Attention Requested to large silver BMW index RE08 EJG (cloned plate) heavily tinted windows, containing 2 white males, young, Irish accent, dark hair wearing baseball caps, travelling A47 Uppingham/Leicester Road, Wardley, Wigston, and Glen Parva.  They have blue lights which they put on inside the front windscreen and attempt to stop vehicles.

Three cases to date (last, evening 1.1.20).  In one case vehicle tried to outrun them and was hit from rear; in a second case a door was opened into side of victim’s car, three times.

Their ‘intent’ is not known but it is suggested unless you are 100% sure it is the police you should not stop.  Indicate to them you intend to pull over and drive steadily to a public place where there will be people about, such as a petrol station. If you have a ‘dashcam’ make sure it is on. If not, don’t be obvious, put your smartphone video on.

Keep your car doors locked and you or your passenger should keep your mobile phone in your hand.  Ask to see a ‘police warrant card’ through the closed window.  If the person is in plain clothes you have every right to ask to see identification.  If you are still unsure dial 999 and wait for uniform police to arrive, a genuine officer will be happy to wait.

Only wind down your window or get out of the car when you are sure that it is a genuine police officer.

Please report any sightings of this vehicle to Police HQ by 999 quoting Crime ref 2*002605, and incidents 644 and 659.
