Do police officers have a ticket quota?
Ticket quotas are commonly defined as any establishment of a predetermined or specified number of traffic citations an officer must issue in a specified time.
Some police departments may set “productivity goals” but deny specific quotas.
Can a cop give another cop a ticket?
Yes. Cops may be more likely to let fellow officers off without a ticket, but being a police officer does not mean that the law no longer applies to you. I’ve been given a ticket by another cop before, and the charge for which I was ticketed was improperly charged.
Can a cop walk into your backyard?
If you have a fence and gate around your backyard, it is considered to be private. The cops can enter the backyard area without specific permission from you. Also, if you are having a party that people are walking into and out of freely, you have basically opened the party to the public.
Can cops get speeding tickets?
If you do get pulled over, says one former police officer, never acknowledge that you were, in fact, speeding. You don’t want to give the police any ammunition to use against you, should you contest your ticket in traffic court. This is why cops touch your car’s tail light during traffic stops.
