The police shamelessly claimed that citizens can identify police when the police car arrives

When questioned about why plainclothes officers did not show warrant cards and how can citizens differentiate police officers from fake police officer, off-duty police officer or plainclothes officer, Police Public Relations Branch (Media Liaison and Communications) Senior Superintendent of Police Kong Wing-cheung explained that when in doubt, citizens can wait at the scene until genuine plainclothes officers call for back up after arresting suspects. If police cars appear shortly after that, they must be genuine police officers.

Besides, as the police repeatedly carried suspects with private cars, Kong recommended citizens to call police stations whenever in doubt, the on-duty officers would confirm such law enforcing operations.
