Video: Dynamic of discretion during the traffic stop

Submitted by:
Sheriff Ray Nash


Just a simple traffic stop gives you multiple discretionary enforcement options. In this Police Dynamics training video, we discuss how to exercise executive discretion when making enforcement decisions on the streets. The basic rule is to let the nature of the offense determine the range of options and let the character of the offender determine which option you choose.
