Safety Tip of The Week

 

 

Investing in A Safe Community…

In partnership with the CPF and the Ohio Crime Prevention Association, we present the
“Tips of The Week.”

 ” DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN STOPPED BY THE POLICE?”

WHAT TO DO IF STOPPED BY THE POLICE WHILE DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE:

A police officer can ask you to pull over when there is a reasonable suspicion an infraction was committed. The best thing to do is:

* Pull over and try to remain calm.
* If it is dark, turn on your vehicle’s inside lights.
* Place your hands on the steering wheel.
* Do not reach into your glove compartment, back seat, etc., until the officer instructs you to do so.
* Retrieve your driver’s license and vehicle registration when asked.

Your complete cooperation will indicate to the officer that you are not looking for trouble.
