"I pulled you over," said Officer Peters, "because you were exceeding the city s posted speed limit."

Capitalize Officer and Peters because together, they make up a formal name. Do not capitalize because, as it does not begin a new sentence - it merely continues the sentence that begins with I pulled you over. Do not capitalize citys because it is not the formal name of a specific city.
