Michigan authorities say a group of people have been posing as police officers for three years.
The Associated Press reports the group calls itself the Genesee County Fire and EMS Media-Genesee County Task Force Blight Agency, impersonating law enforcement at parks, house fires, vehicle crashes and crime scenes.
Members of the group would sometimes arrive first to crime scenes where real police would "ask them to perform tasks."
Three people have been charged, and officials say at least five others could face charges.
