On April 16th at 8:58 pm, a Lacombe police officer was on patrol when a civilian vehicle attempted to pull over the marked police car by displaying red and blue flashing lights in the front window, and yelling at the Police officer to pull over.

This resulted in the youth driver being charged with multiple offences under the Traffic Safety Act.

The Lacombe Police Service would like to remind the public that any attempt to impersonate a police officer could result in charges both under the Criminal Code of Canada and Provincial Legislation
