Trooper Britton says law officers on duty are dressed in proper uniform. State police will wear their hats, the badge is on the left pocket flap, a name tag is on the right, and state police patches are on both shoulders.
Citizens can look for a blue bar light on top of the car, and state police decals on the sides, front and rear. Unmarked cars have blue strobe lights on the dash and rear windows.
Still, police recommend only rolling your window down just enough to communicate with the officer if you are pulled, especially if you are not sure the person is a real law officer.
