LAW ENFORCEMENT: Officer: Bosses target young drivers, want ticket quotas. “”Defendants continue to encourage officers to write as many summonses and effectuate motor vehicle stops regardless of whether probable cause exists, including a quota implemented in or about November 2013 whereby patrolmen assigned to a detail were required to write 15 tickets in a four-hour span. . . . Wysokowski also accused superiors of training younger officers to shine lights into moving vehicles to determine the age of drivers and passengers.” That sounds unsafe.
