CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The Charleston Police Department is asking for help to track down people who are accused of impersonating police officers on the East End.
The department's Special Enforcement Unit has recently received complaints about several men who are identifying themselves as officers, Sgt. Aaron James, assistant chief of detectives, said in a press release.
The suspects use "convincing language" in trying to pass themselves off as police, but they don't show any identification or firearms, the press release said.
