  • My trooper comment..

    Originally posted by DeputyDuc View Post
    Oy, come now, troops and officers of various regions/agencies are rumored or storied to be intolerant hardasses. While a few do exist in every region and dept., it's my experience anyway that these rumors are widely exaggerated if not mostly untrue. I've been sent along by NJSP and SC locals alike, both rumored to 'write their own mothers.'
    I believe the NJSP are very strict, that is my opinion based off what I have seen first hand.

    I also believe that has been proven and don't think that's much of a rumor, not that's bad or anything. And if you believe it’s not true, what’s wrong with saying it is?

    I lived in NJ for 13 years and can't remember a time my where mom, dad, brother or anyone else I know that is NOT in LE get pulled over by a NJ state trooper and did NOT receive a ticket.

    I also believe that any state troopers, not just NJ, are stricter than local cops in regards to issuing tickets. Right, wrong of indifferent, what’s wrong with the statement?

    I have lived here in GA for the past 11 years now and I have been stopped 3 times. and it was all for speeding. One time it was a GSP and I got a ticket, the other two were by local cops and I got off some how.

    This is what happened.

    One time I was in the work truck doing 40 in a 25 mph zone. The officer did not give me a ticket because he was not sure if I would lose my job or not (on the job 2 weeks), that was a local cop.

    The second time I was on the way home and it was late, around 2:30 AM, I was on my way home going North on GA 400 when a GSP stopped me and gave me a ticket for doing 75 in a 55 mph.

    The third time was by the city police and was around the same time as the second one, the officer said because I was in my driveway by the time he caught up to me he did not want to give me a ticket, I was stopped for doing 52 in a 35 mph zone.

    All three times I deserved a ticket. All three times I was respectful and polite to the officer stopping me. I seem to get stopped about every 3.5 years.

    Before I moved to GA I lived in CT 10 years and in NY (Bronx) for 5 years. I got stopped twice by NYSP and got a ticket both times, I never got stopped by any NYC police officer.

    I got stopped by Danbury police about 3 times and got 2 tickets, and once by a CTSP and got a ticket, but I can't complain about that because it was over the top, anyone would have given me a ticket for this one, I was young and doing 90 mph in a 55.

    The others were for doing 15 over the speed limit.

    My experience is state police give tickets 100% of the time, local guys seem to give you more breaks.

    I am not being a smart ***, or dumbs *** to **** you guys off. Just how it worked out for me and why I made my statement.


    Question here is it ture that state police are more apt to give a ticket then local cops.

    What is your question then?......this is 'Ask a cop'.....not 'justify why you posted in an area that you should not have'.....simply accept that you are not allowed to answer posts here and move on.

    This is the comment posted by one of the Mods on another post:

    "This section is for legitimate questions to Ask of Cops. That is why the section is titled "Ask A Cop". You do not have a question, so there is no purpose for this thread to be in this section. Thread closed"
    The posts on this forum by this poster are of his personal opinion, and his personal opinion alone

      Ya...why listen to the guys that are cops and do this for a living?

        Don't know anything about law enforcement agencies in Georgia, New York and NJ

        But I do know, I am a local cop I would have probably cited you in all those cases you mentioned.

          Who cares? Move on, someone disagreed with you and you couldn't answer them because it was posted in ask a cop. People can have different experiences.

          As to your hastily edited in question, it really depends on the officer who pulled you over, and your attitude on the stop, not on the dept. he/she works for.

            I can tell you, I am not State Patrol and if I am taking the time to stop you for speeding, you will be doing 15 over or more and you will be getting a ticket unless a baby is crowning in the backseat. If you are going to lose your job speeding in a work truck don't do it, not my problem, I hear excuses all day everyday.

              If you run 15-20 MPH over the posted speed limit on CA surface streets, the chances are you will receive a ticket from the locals; and, most definitely from the staties. Freeway speeds are a bit different. I did not write everyone I stopped when I was on the road. I probably gave more warnings than I wrote tickets. My job was not to cause hardship but to educate the motoring public.

                  This is "Ask a Cop". So far, you've made numerous statements. Do that in "General Law Enforcement Topics", not here.

                      No it is the individual officer who determines to write a ticket or not. You can have 10 different Troopers and all of them may make a different decision; same with locals. The thing about Troopers is they generally don't pull people over unless they are going to write a ticket. I follow this same practice and I am a local cop.

                        1st off, questions end with a ? mark. 2nd all it boils down to is officer discretion. The only way to know for sure is to keep speeding so you can get pulled over more.

                          I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it

                            I have an "Ask-a-Not-a-Cop" question: You routinely speed but have not learned to slow down by warnings, or citations. What the heck is your problem? Will it take an accident to slow you down? (Ok, that's 2 questions.)

                              Here's an idea for you....quit violating traffic laws and you won't get stopped and ticketed
