Requirements for police to identify themselves?

If the drift of Canada towards a police state has not yet affected you directly, you would do well to recall the words of Pastor Martin Niemoller, writing in Germany before his arrest in the 1930s: "The Nazis came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics and I was a Protestant, so I didn't speak up....by that time there was nobody left to speak up for anyone."

Requirements for police to identify themselves?

Are there any particular statutes or regulations regarding police having to identify themseves?

Is there a requirement about badge number and name being displayed?

Is there a requirement for them to carry their warrant card on them?

If, for example, it is dark or their badge number is covered by a jacket, are they required to give their name and badge number if asked?

Thanks

Police officers are required by law to identify themselves. It is a must do.
