Push to ban vehicles that resemble police cars
It is a scary notion when someone poses as an officer to take advantage of people. It is scarier to know that these perpetrators sometime use decommissioned police cars to do it. Police in Rowlett are investigating an incident where someone posed as an officer and attempted to lure a 14-year-old boy who was playing Pokemon Go. Police told WFAA-TV when the boy checked his phone for proof he was an officer, the man walked back to his car and sped off. The vehicle, described by the teenager, was a "marked police car" with police decals.
State Rep. Craig Goldman says he is ready to bring a bill in November that would make it a crime for someone who is not an officer to drive cars that are made to look like genuine police cars.
