    Correct Answer
    A. Before you activate emergency lights and stop the vehicle
    It is important to establish radio contact with dispatch before activating emergency lights and stopping the vehicle during a traffic stop. This is because radio communication with dispatch allows the officer to inform them about the situation, location, and any other relevant details before taking action. By doing so, dispatch can provide necessary assistance or backup if needed, ensuring the safety of the officer and the smooth handling of the traffic stop.

    • E.

      30 feet

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. 10 feet
    C. 15 feet
    During an unknown risk traffic stop, the patrol vehicle should be located 10-15 feet back from the violator vehicle. This distance allows enough space for the officer to observe the occupants of the violator vehicle and react quickly if any threat arises. Being too close to the violator vehicle can put the officer at risk, while being too far away may hinder their ability to respond effectively. Therefore, maintaining a distance of 10-15 feet strikes a balance between safety and effectiveness during a traffic stop.

  • 8. 

    In which direction should the patrol vehicle usually be offset during an unknown risk traffic stop?

    • B.


    • C.


    • D.

      It depends

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Left
    D. It depends
    During an unknown risk traffic stop, the patrol vehicle should usually be offset to the left. However, it ultimately depends on the specific situation and the officer's assessment of the risk. Offset positioning helps create a barrier between the officer and oncoming traffic, reducing the risk of being struck by passing vehicles. By positioning the vehicle to the left, it allows the officer to have a better view of the traffic and potential threats approaching from the right side. However, depending on factors such as road conditions, visibility, and the location of the stop, the officer may choose a different offset position.
