How to identify a police officer

The most visible external features of a police officer include a police uniform with its identifying marks, a police badge and a vehicle with police emblems. 

If necessary, a police officer shall declare to you that they are a police officer and, on request, present you their badge, if such a declaration or presentation is possible without jeopardising the completion of the action. Here, we will help you to identify a police officer.

In addition to a badge, the police officer may wear a metal ID around their neck. This looks like a sleeve badge. The metal ID does not replace the police badge; its goal is to make identification faster and easier.
