Why were you stopped?

You may have been stopped because:

  • Your driving behavior has drawn attention and raised concern for your own safety or the safety of others.
  • We may have noticed faulty equipment on the vehicle that you may not be aware of.
  • You may have committed a traffic violation.
  • You may have witnessed a crime or may have just left the area of where a crime was committed and the officer may need your help in the investigation of a crime.
  • You may fit the description of a suspect.
  • They may have probable cause to make an arrest or reasonable suspicion of criminal activity based on personal observations, other officers, the police radio information given or a witness.

Whatever the case may be, we ask that you cooperate and be patient with us.
