Pulled Over by a Rockford Cop: Watch The Do’s & Don’t’s
More than 50% of law enforcement officer deaths happen during traffic stops. You and the officer want to go home, here's how to make sure that happens for you both.
You've just been pulled over for a traffic stop. You might be a bit nervous and those nerves could cause you to do something you don't want to do in the presence of a law enforcement officer. Maybe you have a concealed carry license? That can add a completely new dynamic to the experience. There are just a few things that you should know when being pulled over to make sure everything goes well. That officer wants to go home to their family and you do too. You don't want a night in jail with no bond, and after all the training you went through for that concealed carry license, you surely don't want to lose it.
Aurelio DeLaRosa, a 26-year veteran of the Rockford Police Department, and an NRA instructor, took time out of his day to teach me, and us, the right way to conduct myself during a traffic stop.
