    If I was a crook and wanted to learn about police tactics, I for sure would visit this site.

    We are lucky if any of our cars have a computer, or one that works rather.

    The main thing that will come up is if there are arrest warrants connected with the vehicle, and if the vehicle is a reported stolen, reported armed/dangerous etc......
    We do get the address of the owner too, but other than that, it's about the same.

    i usually run the plate before i even light the car up. this way i know the car isnt reported stolen and the registered owner(s) dont have a felony warrant before i go walking up there. also if i am

    i dont know about other agencies/states but running the plate gives a lot more info on the vehicle and the registered owners than just name, date of birth, and address.

    I run the tag, and then approach the driver. While talking to the driver, dispatch gives me the 28 back, and then I run the driver when I get back to my car.

    What I think I will start doing is running the tag and waitingfor the 28 to come back (like the USAF SF does) before approaching the driver.

Others won't get out of the vehicle before the plate is given back. Either way, give dispatch the plate and your location in case things get stupid.

Can't count how many 28's we've run on vehicles outside the residence that have revealed the possibility of bonus, wanted dirtbags we might encounter when we make entry. No brainer for officer safety.
    +1 to both!

    YES, I do. I'm in no rush to stop them. I will wait until I get there info back, and my location is good and them light them up.

    Now with that said, there are times when you don't have time and you just have to stop them and get your location and tag out quick. My zones partners and squad members are awsome about running the tags you call out also.

    started a topic Running a Plate

    Running a Plate

    How do most of you deal with running someones plate at a traffic stop? Do you run the plate before approaching the driver? Or, after getting license, registration?
