Helena Montana -- a new policy for state troopers require that at least one vehicle per hour is stopped.
Col. Paul Grimstadsaid the rule in aims to reduce accidents and drunk driving.
although the driver need not be ticketed, the chief said that the rule steers clear of an anti-quota law.
State law bars law enforcement from imposing minimum numbers of arrests or citations for an officer. but the law says the term "quota" excludes "use of generally accepted management techniques that employee performance objective as part of an overall employee evaluation."
are the officers not doing their job? that is what this kinda sounds like.
I am not in favor in imposing any kind of "quotas" no matter what name that you give them. Law inforcement is just that, Law inforcement. a
The ideal situation is that an officer has nothing to do. Going under the assumption that if he has nothing to do there is no crime.
If the officers time is to constantly seek out "one" vehicle to meet a requirement, I do not feel that is efficient use of law enforcement and also imposes on the right's and conveniences of law-abiding citizens.
