Warning To Beware of Police Impersonators After AFP Badges Stolen

Police have been told to be on high alert for people posing as AFP officers after a break-in at a business that makes new badges for the force.

A warning was sent out to Victoria Police officers on Saturday morning after the burglary at AJ Parkes badge makers in Brisbane.

There are fears AFP badges which are made at the business, which is based in the city’s south west, might have ended up in the hands of criminals.

Police have been unable to verify whether or not any badges have been stolen as yet and an inventory of the company’s stock is expected to be completed tomorrow.

An alert sent to Victoria Police officers stated: “Members are advised to exercise extra vigilance when checking the badges of persons presenting an AFP identification badge.”

An AFP spokeswoman confirmed it was aware of the break-in but refused to comment further.
