5. How to verify the truthfulness of Police identity / Police Warrant Card?

  1. Police Officers are required to produce Police Warrant Card under the following circumstances:

    • Police Officers in Plain-clothes: They shall identify themselves and produce their warrant card when they are exercising their police powers.
    • Police Officers in Uniform: Normally, police officers uniform are not required to produce their police warrant card. However, they should do so upon the request of a member of the public unless the circumstances do not allow or the request is unreasonable:

    When Police Officers produce their warrant cards there is no requirement for them to give their warrant cards to any member of public for checking. If a member of the public has any queries on doubt about the identity of a Police Officer, he / she should contact the nearest police station immediately for clarification.
