"There is no Problem in Questioning the Officers, 'Who Are You?'"

Posted: Updated:

Law enforcement is meant to protect and serve but how can you be sure the person in uniform is not an impostor?

59 news is working for you to get the details on what you should ask for if there is a question over the identity of a person in uniform.

We turned to Fayette County Sheriff Steve Kessler for the answer.

"If law enforcement is going to come into the home, they have to have official documentation. they have to have a search warrant or something from the courts. It has to be official and there is no problem in questioning the officers who are you," Steve Kessler, Fayette County Sheriff said.

He said calling 911 is also an option to make sure the person is legitimate.

And once again you should never let anyone claiming to be law enforcement inside your home without proper ID or a search warrant.
