There is no Sergeant Hamilton attached to the TTPS’ Cyber and Social Media Unit.
The word of caution comes from the Police Service which says a number of persons have reported that an individual has been posing as a member of the Unit.
The person has been requesting individuals to divulge personal information to assist in investigations.
The TTPS says this is NOT in keeping with the Standard Operating Procedures of this Unit and assures that the matter is being thoroughly investigated.
Members of the public meanwhile are urged not to share information about their email accounts, social media accounts, and passwords.
It says anyone with information on the individual in question is asked to contact the nearest police station, or make a report via the TTPS App or the TTPS website.
