I would like to see your badge, please, officer

Depending on your jurisdiction, which could be city, college, county, or state, officers may have no obligation to wear identification at all, let alone disclose it on request. Moreover, departmental policies that do require identification often allow broad discretion for an officer, or commanders, to suspend the rule if they experience a threat, be it a present danger or existential, such as someone later using that information to harass…¬†But even when policy or legislation mandates that they disclose, officers rarely receive punishment if they fail to do so.
