Attention to detail, curiosity, and interdiction success
Perhaps two of the most important traits of officers who time and again turn simple traffic stops into potentially major interdiction busts are attention to detail and a persistent curiosity. They pick up on things like stories that don’t match between occupants. For example, the passenger says they’re on their way to visit a friend while the driver says they’re coming home from visiting that same friend.
Which is it, guys? Coming or going?
