He seems well liked in the OPPD as well.
Dang it wrong thread
You were speeding. You were given a break on the citation. You complain that you didn't get enough of a break.
There might be a legal or regulatory reason he specifically wrote 6 over having to do with the requirements of speed enforcement by radar. Just sayin.
Some places have you take an online course to downgrade a speeding ticket.
Yep, that's what it looks like. Stopped people for speeding, cut them a break with a seatbelt ticket and then somebody decided they were going to fight the break they were given.
Every time I have been given a break I thank the Officer. If ticket I pay it. (Unless wrong). I got a seat belt ticket I contested. Told Officer I would fight that in court as I am (almost) unable to drive without safety belt on. (I tried once on field road)
Folks that contest when given a break are very stupid. False info on signed forms is also stupid.
I worked for government agency. I was TOLD to falsify info on forms because it was the bosses buddy. I refused. I suggested he had authority to " spot check" my work and "correct" it. Just had to sign it out, put his initials by every single crossed out, corrected info. (Both still readable).
I didn't bother mentioning the only times he did spot check my work (and found errors). I suggested that be used for next level spot check "so I could better understand my mistake."
EVERY time my original info found to be correct.
So his buddy was caught, fined....
Exactly. Guys do here all the time.
OR....., write them every citation you can, INCLUDING the reason for the stop. That way everyone's happy!
Conversely, I've seen people who were killing it with traffic not get promoted because the rest of the agency were slugs and if the ones doing the work got promoted, all of the stats would suffer.
Kansas has special state traffic enforcement programs that will pay overti ime for departments to write seat belt tickets and enforce dui. It's around major holidays. More DU I you get or seat belts the more money you get. I got 4 or 5 seat belt tickets per hour. I didn't think you could charge court costs on seat belt tickets in ks.
I'd rather get an UNSAT evaluation from my employer than earn a place on the County Attorney's "Brady list".
This for sure!
Yep...was not uncommon for some leo's I worked with to do exactly that...I did not allow those I supervised to do it...just issue a written warning rather than endanger your career
