ScottyMacEsq :

Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.

ScottyMacEsq :

I believe that I answered your question earlier. In short, no, she is not required by any law (federal, state, Constitutional, etc...) to notify you that she is a police officer or any other type of law enforcement officer.

ScottyMacEsq :

This "myth" that an officer has to notify you is one that has been around for a while, and the fact is that police are actually using it to further sting operations. That is, a police officer will tell a suspect "if I'm a police officer, I have to tell you if you ask if I am one" and will deny being one. This is entirely legal to do. The key is whether or not the alleged perpetrator will voluntarily commit a crime. The police officer does not have to reveal his or her cover.

ScottyMacEsq :

Again, there's absolutely NO law, statute or caselaw, Federal, state or Constitution, that requires that a police officer identify himself or herself.
