What to do if stopped by the police

Our friends at the Michigan State University Police publish a pamphlet called “What to do if stopped by the police.”  They developed it to inform their Auburn_Hills_Traffic_Detail_20130611163142_640_480community why they do what they do on traffic stops.

I thought it was a very good description of not just what MSU officers do but what all officers do on traffic stops.  Particularly in Michigan, we are all trained in very similar ways across the entire state so what they describe is what happens everywhere.

I thought you might find it interesting too since it seems that there are many misconceptions out there about traffic stops.
