SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS IN TRAFFIC POLICE WORK

The author stresses safety considerations such as maintenance of good siren and emergency lights, knowing the warning capabilities of the car, and making emergency runs only in areas known to the police. Comments on high speed chases considers areas and conditions in which they should be avoided. A discussion of traffic stops recommends using emergency lights to stop violators and parking the car to afford protection while standing beside the violator's car. Controlling onlookers and placing down warning flares are among the suggestions offered for accident investigations.
