(S.T.O.P.S.) - Strategies and Tactics Of Patrol Stops
Strategies and Tactics Of Patrol Stops are designed to do just that. Using principles proven and instructed at many State Law Enforcement Academies, the (S.T.O.P.S) program will give your patrol officers the tactics and know-how needed to safely conduct vehicle traffic stops, reduce department liability and officer complaints, and teach necessary survival from both vehicular and felonious assaults.
The goal of the (S.T.O.P.S) training program is to instruct sworn law enforcement officers in the following: assessment of risks and threat cues by drivers and passengers; safe positioning of police and violator vehicles; safe methods for approaching vehicles and making contact with driver/passenger; how to stop and approach vehicles other than passenger cars; case law regarding vehicle stops; safe methods for conducting “felony,” or high-risk stops; procedures and law regarding vehicle searches and how to safely conduct them; how to avoid citizen complaints and conflict with violators; and risk factors that must be considered during a vehicle pursuit, which often begins with a traffic stop. It is our most popular and fastest growing course and is being taught by many State Police Academies nationally.
The experience of the S.T.O.P.S program goes beyond the citation to focus on a safe, successful outcome.
