**** HRP Media Release
After the tragic events that unfolded in our province over the weekend, Halifax Regional Police want to provide some information to members of the community about officer identification.
We are reinforcing with our officers the importance of self-identification while approaching citizens. Citizens can also request proper identification.
In addition to the officer presenting their ID card & badge, Halifax Regional Police want citizens to know they can also call 902.490.5020 to confirm identification of a police officer. In any emergency situation, please call 911.
