Home Alone - Police Officer? I Don't Think So!
If you look closely when the Police Officer chasing Kevin, look at his badge, first off, this badge looks nothing like a badge that is issued to the Chicago Police, also the badge number doesn't even exist!!! I looked it up!! Trust me, my dad is a police officer and I've seen this movie 137 times exactly, including 4 times today!
Special Requirements:
VCR, data of police officers badge numbers in the state of Illinois

I have several friends who are also police officers and they all said the same thing about the badge. It would be against the law for the movie makers to use a real badge for the movie so obviously, a fake is used. Just the same way they're not allowed to use real telephone numbers either thus the infamous '555' area codes all the time.

Who cares??? The film is aimed at a young audience, yeah? How many of the youngsters out there watching this film (besides yourself) would go and check on the badge number of a policeman on a movie? If you think this is worth a 10 then you must be kidding yourself. I suppose you are gonna tell me now that the two bad guys don't have criminal records.

RedSox02, According to your other post about the Tic-Tacs, you saw the movie 294 times. Yes, I know it's you who signed anonymous at the initial post up top. Why did you change your name? Any way, just a question: Why would they put a real badge number on an actor? Do you try and call those 555 phone numbers to see if those are real too? I give your So called slip up a BIG OL' 1

Geez RedSox, you really need to get a life. I mean, actually admitting to watching the movie 137 times plus the 4 times when you submitted this mistake is really pathetic.

redsox02, WOW!!! First off, I can't believe you admitted that you have "seen the movie 137 times exactly." And, secondly, this is one of the dumbest slip-ups I have ever seen. And your comment as well. Should we say that every movie has a slip-up because the numbers begin with 555!!!? I don't think so.

Actually, the 555 prefix on telephone numbers does exist. However, all 555 numbers that are not fake TV numbers (and maybe by coincidence even some of those) are information numbers.

555 isn't the area code in movie phone numbers, it is the prefix. The order of numbers in a phone numbers is area code, prefix, number ex. 782(area code)-555(prefix)-0102(number)
