Remember it and write it down as soon as possible.
If badge and name are not in full view, make note of the physical

Look for the Precinct Number or the Division (Transit, Housing, etc.) This can be found on the brass insignia on the officer's shirt collar.
Make note of the number of officers present.
Make note of any witnesses.
Take note of where you are.
