  • Carstops and presenting your credentials.

    When making a carstop, do any of you officers have a prefered way you would want a LEO to present/display his/her credentials. I notice that officers that get pulled over have different ways identifying themselves...but what's the officer's preference in the matter?

    If they are able to catch up to me, I prefer to maintain speed and move into the center or right lane. This allows me to display my shield, ID or Pct Paking Placard out the drivers window. I do it that way as a courtesy, so the officer can roll up on my side and get a close look and determine that I'm OTJ. I give them a wide berth and let them pass me, if they so desire. If not I just speed up more to get out of their way. It's an efficient and safe way of handling the situation. No need for the PO to waste precious time stopping or putting both of us in jeopardy of getting struck on the shoulder. I know I appreciate it when I'm doing speed enforcement, those shoulders are murder on an RMP's tires, let alone ones personal vehicle.

          I prefer you stop in the left lane of traffic, dangle your shield out the window or waive your plaque, then become infuriated with me and get out of the car in traffic and scream at me, bro do you know who the f**! I am because your tinted out car you over payed for at major world with your phantom plate cover window tints and general excessively aggressive driving style didn't alert me....and if you are corrections I prefer you make a ccrb against me after I don't write you.

              The OP is about how do you prefer someone you pull over to present their credentials.

                if they are going to do that, don't you think thats how they would like it to be done to them. respectful without drawing huge attention.

                  When I was making traffic stops it was a rare occasion to run across a cop. On the few occasions most would casually mention they were on the job. A few had their badge/id on their thigh. Only once or twice did I have a cop waive it out the window.

                  On the other hand- family members, buffs, PI's, security guards, honorary something's, donors, patrons and everything else you could imagine would usually have their badge/card up and at the ready by the time I close the gap.

                      Yeah exactly. That's the way I would prefer a LEO to show me creds. Too many eyes out to see just an ID card.

                      Majority of Feds have bi fold out ID cards cards and are usually flipped open on their lap, or verbally say they are LEO and then show you the id within the car. Same with some state investigators.

                      Same goes for PBA cards. Present PBA card behind your drivers license.

                      I might be the rare exception where I don't care if they waved a placard to me. It saved me time from going through the motions. Only cops do that anyway. If it's the color of the year, I wave them, they wave back.

                      I never wen through the motions for on duty placards either. Who knows if they were on an op or following a car. A quick wave is all that it took.

                      Oh well. Times changed.

                        Outside NYS, where dashcams are prevalent, especially down south, be very restrained in presenting your creds with your DL. Restraint and respect will go a long way in resolving a situation favorably.
