That wasn't directed at you, by the way. It was to the "Chief" of the group talked about in this thread.

EDMONTON - Curtis John Ulmer’s black car was equipped with red-and-blue lights and a siren, a baton and holster were clipped to his utility belt and he introduced himself as a detective.

Ulmer watched for speeders outside his son’s school while dressed as a police officer. Once, he pulled over a man he thought drove too fast.

Ulmer was a fake. So was his badge, so was his authority.

On Friday, the 38-year-old pleaded guilty to impersonating a police officer and possession of a prohibited weapon. He admitted he pretended to be an officer at least three times, including pulling over another driver.

“He created a persona,” Crown prosecutor Laura Marr told court.

On the night of May 15, 2014, Ulmer parked his modified Ford Taurus at the Happy Mart gas station on Winterburn Road and introduced himself as an officer to the clerk inside.

“He made several statements about being assigned that area for him to patrol,” Marr said.

Though Ulmer wore a police ball cap, a neon green police vest and a holstered air pistol on his hip, the clerk didn’t believe he worked for the Edmonton Police Service. She wrote down his licence plate and called police after he left.

The next day, Ulmer used his fake police car to pull over a speeding driver outside his son’s west-Edmonton school. As a crossing guard watched, Ulmer pulled the vehicle over with the lights and sirens he had installed, spoke with the driver through his window and sent him on his way.

“He told the driver to slow down,” Marr said. “He then pulled into the staff parking lot and was wearing what witnesses said was a bulletproof vest, a police shirt and patches.”

He told teachers that he had given the speeding driver a ticket. Teachers told them he couldn’t park in staff parking.

“I have a police light,” Ulmer told them. He drove away with his son.

On May 24, Ulmer startled staff and students outside the school by blaring his siren and flashing his lights through a crosswalk as kids left for the day. He activated his siren again to let his son know he had arrived to pick him up.

Staff reported the man they knew as Detective Ulmer to the school resource officer, who reported him to the professional standards branch of the Edmonton Police Service. Investigators then turned their attention to an actual Detective Ulmer who did work for the Edmonton Police Service.

Once investigators realized the mistake, they tracked down the impostor through the licence plate the skeptical gas station attendant wrote down.

On May 28, Ulmer was co-operative with officers who searched his home. Inside, they found everything a fake police officer would need, including duty belts, badges, police hats, an EPS sweatshirt, a “detective kit,” holsters, handcuffs, pepper spray, knives, a breathalyzer, binoculars, flashlights, notebooks, a baton, an air pistol and a dashboard camera.

They also found a prohibited stun gun.

Ulmer will now undergo a psychiatric assessment before his sentencing hearing April 8.

by breathalyzer I'm sure they mean a roadside, and not the breathalyzer we have at the station.

I HAVE seen Breathalyzer 900 or 900A and Intoxilyzer 5000 (not C) on eBay.

I tried to "creatively acquire" a 900, or ...A, or 5000C, for my man-cave, but figured the Comm would slap me (again!), so did not pursue it. I figure the Force was just going to sledge-hammer them anyways. I would have had to get the entire Seinfeld / G.I.-Joe-set-up (equilibrator, ampoules, simulator, SAS) collection to be truly nerdy, though.

Who needs a siren, you can hear the "put put" coming a mile away.

That thing is filthy. They spent all the time and effort putting flashing lights on the silly thing and they could clean it up a bit? At least wipe it off before you film the video.

They could have done a better job on the wiring too.

And when are they going to post a video of the lightbars that I gave them installed on their vehicles? :dubious:
