Advice - First Principle

First Principle
  • Police officers always carry identification and can always be asked for verification.
  • They are used to providing that reassurance.
  • It would be rare for an officer in plain clothes to be working alone. If they are, you can request they call for another officer to join them.
  • Officers should be carrying their radio and can allow you to seek verification from the force control room using this.
  • Officers should be tolerant of those who wish for reassurance and explain who they are, what they are doing and why.

Preventing crime is the first of nine principles set out by Sir Robert Peel in 1829 when he established the modern day police force. That first principle forms the basis for the crime prevention advice that has been provided below.
