I thought you guys might want to see how the sheriff's department operates, so here is the first in the series!
About this creation
Yesterday evening, as part of a community outreach program, the Deerwater County Sheriff's Office held a demo about non-felony traffic stops. There was less turnout than expected, but hopefully in the future, this program will attract more.

The first bit of standard procedure is pulling up behind the vehicle. The deputy then runs the license plates through his computer and checks to see if the car is stolen. If it is, they will proceed directly to step #5B. If it is not, they will proceed to step #2. Step #1 is shown above.



This is step #2. Before exiting the vehicle, the deputy turns on the spotlight if it is needed. They then exit the vehicle and are trained to always go to the passenger's side of the vehicles for safety, even if it isn't on the highway.



Step #3 is to get the necessary identification which, in the state of Minnesota, is your driver's license, the vehicle's registration, and the proof of insurance for the car. They take that and head back to the squad.



Step #4 is to run the driver through the computer and double check the vehicle. If the driver isn't wanted, they skip step #5. If they are, the proceed to step #5 and call for a backup unit.





There are two parts to step #5. The A part and the B part. If the driver is wanted but not for violent crimes and/or is not known to be armed and dangerous, the do the A part, simply asking the driver to step out of the vehicle and arresting them. If they don't comply, the deputy will take necessary measures so that they are placed into custody. The B part is if the driver is wanted for a violent crime and/or is known to be armed and dangerous. They take cover, draw their weapon, and wait for backup to arrive before conducting a felony stop. Hopefully, the deputy was able to get to a heavier weapon, such as a shotgun or assault rifle.



Step #6 is quite simple, just heading back to the car and issuing either a citation or a warning. They then get back in their squad, fill out the necessary paperwork, and call in as clear.

This will be a series of little demos from the sheriff's office. Next will be a felony stop, and some to come after that are a raid, a helicopter insertion, a K9 attack demo, and more! Stay tuned to see these coming.

Quoting Andrew Awesome It's good but even on the highway officers always go to the driver's side because of the fact that reaching I to the car to grab paperwork is EXTREMELY dangerous
Ehh, not as dangerous as standing out in the middle of the highway in traffic. We all have our opinions.

Quoting T.J. Brammer Good demonstration Joe. It's the same in West Virginia with the procedure, but I'm not sure on step #5.
Thanks! Yeah, I just kind of made up that section from what I have seen in videos and heard.
