Police warn of impersonator in Jackson County

Brownstown Police are warning about a police impersonator in the area.

According to the police department’s Facebook page, a man in a black SUV with flashing white lights in the front window was operating in the Cortland area yesterday. The driver is described as a white man about 6 feet tall wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

Brownstown police say that police use red and blue colored lights in Indiana. White flashing lights may be visible but always in combination with red and blue. In general, a police officer will be in a marked police vehicle, be wearing a distinctive police uniform displaying a badge, or both.

If you doubt you are being stopped by an actual police officer you should call 911.
