There is a guy saying he is cop acting like a complete tosspot on a public Facebook community website. It's upsetting people, including people currently grieving. Does anyone know, if I print out this conversation, where I can take a complaint to, or even if it's something police would be interested in?

This is Vic Police.

I'm pretty sure the police don't look too fondly on jerks pretending to be police officers. I would take screen shots and maybe give crimestoppers or your local station a call? they may say they have bigger fish to fry but it's worth a shot original.gif

Take it and show it to his superior at his station...this way it will do a few things. First it will confirm if he is a cop or just a pork chop on a power trip. Second if he is he can be dealt with appropriately according to their policy regarding facebook. Third if he isn't a cop and it classifies as harassment of people then something might be able to be done.

Crap they just deleted the original post, so it's gone. I still have it open on my iPad, fb app, anyone have ideas on how to print it out? I'm pretty disgusted by this guy. And I have a horrid feeling he is a cop.

On your iPad hold down the top off on button and press the round menu button at the bottom at the same time, it will take a pic and save to your gallery

Ah crap now it's gone. Forget it. I am going to email him and tell him his behaviour is disgusting and I will report him if he does it again in future (while identifying himself as a cop).

Thanks, I got some screenshots using that tip, but it was only the end of the conversation and it wouldn't let me load the earlier stuff which is the only way it would make sense. I did capture him insulting someone saying it was "people like him" he has to deal with. But not much.

I just checked the VICPOL website, they have a feedback system:

http://www.police.vic.gov.au/content.asp?Document_ID=34425

Fill this out and send it back to them. That way, you know your complaint is going directly to the correct section of the Police.

Just had another thought but when you get post notifications does it have anything of what they have written in it?

Has he anything that postively identifies himself as a police person or is he just saying he is?

Vic Police hate their men to be on FB announcing themselves as members and would not take kindly to one who is being a tool.
If you know his name I would definitely report him.....what an idiot.

ETA--Anyone else who sees this type of behaviour should do the same sort of thing.

This was my thought too - I wonder if he really is a cop or just stirring up trouble?

I would have my doubts he is a real police officer too.  Worth following up though.

Wouldn't surprise me.

I spent all day in court (working), after a particularly challenging, long day I was driving home and getting irritated by the tosser in a VN commodore, weaving in and out of traffic at speed. Said tosser had his arm hanging out the window acting like Joe Cool... I got my dirtiest look ready at the red light and to my disgust, saw it was the Police Prosecutor I had spent all day with in court. Ironically, he had been advocating for, amongst other penalties, licence disqualification for "hoon driving".

Hate hypocrites, in any profession. Have him hauled in.

I said men because this was a guy. I actually used the term 'police person' at the beginning of my post!

I was wondering the same but came to the conclusion that regardless of gender it's worth reporting OP.

Either the person is has bonafides in which case they may be investigated internally or no bonafides and likely also investigated. Nothing to lose really.

He is saying he is, others are backing it up.
