ISP Trooper Talks About Unmarked Police Vehicles
Date posted - May 10, 2013
Iowa State Patrol Trooper Vince Kurtz tells us that, while the Iowa State Patrol does utilize unmarked patrol vehicles, they are moving toward having more of their vehicles marked.
Kurtz acknowledges that sometimes people are hesitant to pull over for unmarked cars, for fear that it’s someone impersonating a law enforcement officer. He says that, while the vast majority of these cars are legitimate, there are measures you can take to protect yourself if you’re not sure.
And in case you were wondering, Kurtz says that all law enforcement officers in Iowa are State-Certified Officers, and therefore have legal powers of arrest anywhere in the state.
