WARNING: Terrorists Might Impersonate Police, Firefighters

NBC News has obtained a document from law enforcement warning about the possibility that terrorists might impersonate police officers, firefighters and EMTs to attack the U.S.

A memo distributed by the Pennsylvania State Police's Criminal Intelligence Center to law enforcement warns that imposters pretending to be first responders could use false identification to enter secure areas and wreak havoc before slipping away undetected.

"The impersonators' main goals are to further their attack plan and do harm to unsuspecting citizens as well as members of the emergency services community," said the bulletin, titled "First Responder Impersonators: The New Terrorist Threat."

The document does not explicitly mention this week's papal visit but was issued just days before the Pope was scheduled to visit the U.S. NBC reports the the warning "cited instances at home and abroad where suspects donned or were in possession of police uniforms in a bid to carry out an attack. It was based in part on Homeland Security and FBI reports."
