Quite often in my travels on foot I'm stopped by the RCMP. Quite often I'm dressed in jeans and a hoodie. It's comfy, warm and I seem to fit in with the crowd. They ask my name, where I'm going and coming from. Sometimes I have to correct their spelling of my name. Never doing anything against the law, but always questioned. I don't get offended when getting stopped.
I try to be polite and answer every question clearly. Some peace officers are not very friendly and the young go-getters are not happy with my boring honest answers. Apparently it's suspicious going to the gym at 3 AM, I dunno. But even in the middle of the day walking home from work in my uniform I "match" suspect descriptions. Even though the clothing colour is way off.
Any who, to get to the question at hand... Does this make me "known to police"? I always see in the news/paper suspects arrested and it says they're known to police. Is this only the case when you get arrested that you become known to police?
