Good article from the Australian police UFO reporting website Police UFO.com which makes some interesting points about the credibility and reliability of Police witnesses highly trained and experienced in reporting what they see. The Police Officer UFO Witness Why is the police officer considered a special witness to UFOs? Why are police officers important to the investigation of UFOs? Nowhere else in the UFO phenomenon is more attention given than to that of the UFO witness. The witness lies at the core of the phenomena, if indeed it isn’t the core itself.

"Deserves the acolade!"...Gary Hesletine is doing a sterling job! 1963 - he certainly is mate and there's been some pretty freaky eyewitness testimony (and object deions) submitted by police officers over the years - there are also quite a few cases at the PRUFOS site where multiple officers have witnessed the same thing. “It was approximately 50 feet in length.

Credible people reporting incredible flying machines.

Credible people reporting incredible flying machines. SkyEagle, some of the object deions do sounds incredibly strange - here's Gary Heseltine speaking from the IUFOC in Laughlin, Nevada and I think it's good that people are starting to recognize his work and see just how many police UFO reports there actualy are. Cheers.

Gary Heseltine being interviewed on BBC radio explaining how about 75 percent of PRUFOS reports are 'multiple officer' cases - he also mentions some other police UFO incidents involving E.M. effects and right angle turns: See 28:30 http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8401809275528107156

Mr Heseltine, from Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, has amassed a database including 330 cases and the witness statements of more than 750 police officers... Karlis, I think the figures have increased somewhat since the posted article - especialy when one considers the international police UFO incidents. Cheers.
