If you see blue and red lights flashing in your rear-view mirror, but you suspect that it is not a real police officer pulling you over, we have some advice for you that could save your life.

It seems like every couple of months we hear a news story of someone impersonating a police officer and pulling women over in the middle of the night.  It happened this weekend in Bowie County.

I called and spoke with Bowie County Chief Deputy Larry Parker about it, and he said,

If you are being pulled over by an unmarked vehicle, and you suspect it may not be a real police officer.  You do not have to pull over immediately. Slow your rate of speed, and call 911 immediately to verify.  Tell the 911 operator where you are, and where you will be stopping, which should be a safe, well lit, and populated area.

He went on to say,

If your instincts are telling you something is wrong, there is a good chance it is.

Now, if you are being pulled over by a marked police vehicle, and you know it is a police officer, here is a list of “What to do if Stopped by the Police”.
