read the post pwease.
I read your post before.

But she never mentioned she has been to the police, and I also suspect your advice went "blank" (ie she did not follow it).

That's why I said: I guess you haven't bothered reporting that... (like you suggested...)

Re: Police at the door !!

Sounds very odd. Ok if he really was a cop undercover I guess that he would not take the risk to be seen just to go back and give you a better explanation.

I would put up some camera surveillance for the hopefully never occurring "next time".

Re: Police at the door !!

Genuin question: Am I wrong assuming that policemen would not come alone to people's door? I would expect them to be two policemen together. Maybe a wrong assumption, feel free to enlighten me.

Sounds a reasonable assumption to me. It's possible that if they were checking out all the neigbours that a partner might have been elsewhere in the building.

I suppose this is Switzerland and not downtown Baltimore.

depending on the role of a legitimate officer, they may be investigating alone. But generally, it's an officer safety issue to do anything alone.

If it was a legit cop, then his partner may have been waiting outside or at the front door of the house.

But I am curious... was OP's husband gone for 2 months also? Because it really does sound like they'd been casing the place, either deciding 2:00pm was a good time because nobody is ever home then, or both residents were out of town...

Nevertheless. as others said, go to the Police station and report a suspicious person presenting himself as a cop. They'll likely ask you for a name, which is another indication... when an officer shows you his creds, he is also supposed to present himself by giving his name. Further, if he wanted information, it would have been professional for an investigator to leave a business card.

So... definitely report it without delay, and be prepared to give a description. If your building has cameras then maybe his face is on tape, too.

Very true!

That's why he tried to enter her apartment... You know, to discuss detective stories in the middle of the night in front of a nice cup of tea with that lonely woman.

But yes in case of any doubts it's better to post on a public forum instead of contacting the police or ask the neighbors.


I tell you what: How about next time you see something suspicious like that, you invite the guy in and see what happens? You can always post a nice topic on how "strange undercover policeman" are nice or you can put a topic on the complain forum "Local police did a full search on me at night: allowed?"

Thanks by the way for letting those strange people roam free.

Re: Police at the door !!

It would be really good to have some further input from the OP on this matter ie did she contact the local police or not and what happened if so etc.

There's been nothing since her first and subsequent post about it on May 12, 2011 although she's been active on the forum after that time...

Maybe, she's a newbie and doesn't realize her thread has been updated since then?

Maybe she invited that "Policeman" inside her house finally...

You know he was not suspicious enough.

And he said he was a policeman so it's 100% true! 100% Genuine information certified.

I checked her profile beforehand for that reason and saw she was at 55 posts as of yesterday (joined Dec 2010).

Or, maybe she's just not had the time to follow up the incident with the local police as yet?... Whatever the reason, an update would be really helpful to everyone, especially those who took the time and trouble to respond offering support, their appreciation for her original post and advising on the next steps. That is all.
