    Default Help from boys in blue

    3 times now in the last 2 weeks i've been followed by the same police car on my way to work , I know i work nights but surely this is harrassment ? Could understand it if i was speeding but they follow me for about 2 miles over speed humps, about 15mph at most . If i make a complaint/query at station would i need a officers number or just the reg ? Don't mind them checking but feel like i'm going to make a mistake/crash cause they're right behind me !

    mate you need to see if its the same car/officers... try to pull over let them pass clock the reg... maybe even see if you can speak to the officers... may be different officers each time... we all work shifts... could be just coincidence?

    Could it be coincidence.....ie end of their shift using the same route? It certainly wont be the same officers due to shift patterns.

    Make an enquiry at the local nick to reassure yourself, quoting the index number of the car.

    Doubt you have grounds for harrassment, as you have not been stopped.

    Regards

    I leave for work at 11.15pm so can understand them following me, but it was last night and night before ! They know i work nights cause i've been pulled before and i think its on my data. But can't concentrate on the road properly cause i'm always checking how close they are and waiting for lights to come on and pull me.

    Its because your car is so smooth and the night shift guys like the look of it. Look at it this way - with your own escort - no one will mess with you. They don't set out to see how many people they can nick - they set out with the intent to protect us - I have loads of friends that are police - and the last thing they want is to upset people. They like law abiders - we pay their wages. You could always pull over and stop as you are going slow anyway, and if they pull up you could ask them if all is ok - you never known your car may have a dodgey light!! (But they would let you know !)
    Don't worry - they are human.

    Try and chuck an anti surveillance move, and change your route if you can, then you might get a better idea if its actually you...they are following

    Would love to but would be late for work, might leave a bit early and just pull over and let them do a check. Don't mind being pulled. Don't really feel harrassed anyway just irritated , if they do a check does it stay on my record that i work nights and leave at 11.15

    no, thats not the sort of info that would be held, its probably just coincidence, and getting down to basics,.....if there was anything up you would be tugged, like i said you could make an enquiry just to set your mind at ease
