milwaukee man identified himself as a police officer and ordered a passing driver to pull over. police have yet to say what happened next. the suspect is now in police custody. a source with fox 6 tells us he was wearing a police like uniform and his car was similar to an unmarked squad car. criminal justice expert brian dorow says incidents like this are rare but there are ways to distinguish a police impersonator. "as a rule of thumb... there's a very slim chance that an unmarked squad will ever pull somebody over for a traffic stop." dorow says in the slim chance this does happen a driver should s badge. they should be able to show you an id that matches their badge number. he says a civilian has the right to request an id and the right to call authorities to report suspicion of a possible impersonator. "most departments have a protocol of some kind that when some type of police interaction is going to take place they will have a marked vehicle make initial contact... that's also for officers safety as well." meanwhile residents like cheeks hope this was an isolated incident.
