Hi Mr. Bennett,
I would like to request a copy of the police department's policies. Specifically I would like to see in writing the department's policy on auto speeding minimums where mandatory tickets are issued.
I recently got a ticket for speeding and I accept that I was exceeding the posted limit. I believe I was 10 mph over, the officer said 15 over. I still accepted his determination at which point he stated he would like to give a warning, but department policy requires mandatory tickets for anything 15 or more over. I thought that was odd as most officers have discretion. I visited the department and spoke to an officer who refused to give a copy of the policy and also stated that the mandatory minimum over the limit to issue a ticket is 13.
I will be going to court to present these facts and would like to have a copy of the policy with me.
Thank you for your time and consideration of this matter. Please let me know the status and time frame of this request and if you need additional information from me.
