  • Virginia State Troopers pull over 75 marked NYPD cars returning from N.O.

    An officer from my precinct, along with 149 other NYPD officers were returning from duty in New Orleans this week. After a grueling two weeks in Louisiana, there to help out cops who desperately needed help, and on their way back, in 75 MARKED NYPD patrol vehicles, they were pulled over and lectured by two Virginia State Troopers! They were told they can

    Sounds like something state police would do.

          all i will say, is that if, and thats a big IF, it all happened like it is said it was in the squad room,,,then nypd was in the wrong,

          it has been discussed here numerous times, if you dont show pc, dont expect it,

          on that note, hats off to the officers that went down there, i know they had to be worn out, but none the less, even when working in your own jurisdicition, you sometimes work dead on your ***, and you still have to be professional,,

          all the above is in the case that what i have read, IS 100% ACCURATE, but i wasnt there as was none one else in here, so we dont know, and as it has been said in here i dont know how many times, dont blanket all because of one, especially when your not there.

          this thread should die before it even began.

            That's an ignorant statement. Since the memo posted in the squad room said it was Agusta County Sheriffs Deputies who made the stop.

                Dude this thread is been beaten to death!!!!!!!! Be professional and move on and quit crying about it!! Is that all you have to do is whine??? Go back to work and arrest somebody, it will make you feel better!!! Next time, go around Virginia...oh wait, then you'd find some other poor agency to bash. Man we all must not be worthy enough to be like NYPD.

                    I don't think even the Ohio Highway Patrol would do that. In our area they would have received a heroes escort with lights and siren

                      This topic is posted in The Squad Room as well - 'Any VA Troopers?'.

                      As far as I can see, this was all precipitated by a lady who was disgruntled that the NYPD convoy didn't allow her to pass, so she called 911. She also alleged that the convoy was travelling at 90mph plus, and the rear vehicle of the convoy would block lanes to prevent those from passing. Allegedly, this lady called 911 NUMEROUS times to complain.

                      I am of two opinions:
                      1) Sucks to be that lady in such a hurry. She should've left earlier. I think she could've been more gracious about a convoy of 50+ NYPD vehicles travelling on the interstate. She should've sucked it up.

                      2) This could've been prevented if the NYPD convoy had VA Trooper escort.

                      I think it's great that NYPD travelled so far to help out their brothers and sisters. Kudos to them.

                        That doesn't make sense, who's passing a convoy of marked police vehicles going 90mph+?

                          Don't think you've read the entire thread. They were travelling under the speed limit and supposedly blocking traffic to maintain their convoy. It's awesome that they went down to New Orleans, but why do 50+ vehicles like that have to remain in a convoy without any gaps between them if they're just passing through? If they really were blocking people who were attempting to pass them, only to maintain an continuous convoy, I don't see how they can complain, especially if the comments about similar actions when the highway went to three lanes are true.

                            what "if it really happened that way" statement that bothers me, was that the va trooper went to overtake the lead car, and the va trpr had his emerg equip activated, and the lead car pulled over and blocked the trpr,,, IF this is true, then that is bull****, for many different reasons.

                            i'm not supposed to post in the squad, so i'll say it here, if all that was posted is true,,which i doubt everything has merit,
                            1- i know that here, if you are out of your jurisdiction and not in pursuit of a crime, you dont have the authority to run your lights or siren, with that in mind, if you are going to do that, okay fine, but you better mind your p's and q's,

                            2- trying to keep a convoy that size together for that freggin long of a trip,, aint gonna happen, and they were on a hwy, so what if they get a little seperated, its not like your going to get seperated even more at a stop light, and IF all happened as being reported, then that is rude to the motoring public.

                            3- as far as them cutting off cars and they should have been given PC, and someone posted something about officers acting with the attitude, "that i am the police, i can do what i want" pc doesnt go there, officers with this attitude are the same terds that give other officers bad images, they are the ones that end up arrested and plastered all over the news.

                            4- as far as some blaming the va hwy ptrl,, grow up, part of an officers job is to respond to complaints by the public, wether or not to complaint in question is about an officer or other complaints, should va have just offered an escort, well, IF, they didnt due to shorthanded shifts, they cant just drop the public to cater to someone else, that would be against the oath. is it unfortunate, yes. but, **** happens.
                            someone also posted that the ptrl should have just pulled up, took a look, then went back 10-8,,well, refer to #3, just because the complaint in question is an officer, doesnt mean that it doesnt warrant you doing your job, just because the complaint in question is about an officer, not all officers are golden, there are plenty out there that should not be officers.

                            if its true that they were on a 3lane hwy, traveling in the hammer lane, but blocking all three, what the hell, stay in the inside, fine, but other cars can pass you on the right, if you know who to properly drive a convoy, then you dont leave room for another vehicle to pull in the middle, and if they were only going 50mph, why the hell would another car want to pull in the middle of the convoy,,, thats just a stupid statement, and for blocking cars from passing, well, you are out of your juridiction, you dont have the authority to direct traffic, nor do cars have to yield to you, you are not an officer in that state,

                            i have done several funeral escorts on the 4ln divided hwy, i have no problem with cars passing us.

                              The version of the story I heard was involving VA state police. I just have a poor opinion of VA state police in particular and I needed to make my previous statement more precise.

                              I extend my fullest apologies to the other 49 state police agencies and their officers.
