BUY THAT AUTHENTIC LAW ENFORCEMENT LOOK?

It was last week when we first reported how impersonators could buy authentic HPD equipment on websites like EBAY and Craigslist.

A second check has revealed the Houston Police Department is not alone.

We found authentic patches on sale for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, various Constable’s Offices, and even Metro Police.

The Houston Police Officers’ Union is tackling the problem by attempting to buy as many patches and badges as members can.

HPD is also looking into asking those online sites not to sell police equipment that could end up in the wrong hands.
