Profiled by Police


Cops seem to pick me out of a crowd to pull over for no reason. What can I do?


**********************
Response:

If you feel like you get more tickets or are stopped by police more often than others, then you probably are. Why? What makes you a cop magnet? Or, it is profiling?


Everyone in every profession is taught to seek out and assess their clients and/or potential customers.

Teachers, car salesmen, hustlers, cab drivers, doctors, lawyers, - name any profession. You better know how to identify and “size up” your client base.
The same goes for law enforcement officers.

Law enforcement officers are taught to look for people breaking the law. Most of the time, if they pull you over, you are either breaking the law or you fit the profile they have learned most often matches lawbreakers.
In reality, all professions profile their client base or customers. You can also say that everyone profiles everyone else in life.

We continually assess others around us for levels or trust and expectations.
However, I am amazed how many people wave a red flag at police - particularly when they know they have something to hide. For instance, people will switch tags on their car. Instead of inconspicuously putting the license plate on so as not to attract attention, they will barely hang it on the car with one loose screw. It’s just screaming to the cop that pulls up behind you, “Hey, officer, something’s up with this license plate”.

The same goes for tinting windows, blaring music, not wearing a seatbelt, driving on a mini-spare, having a tail light out, or running out of gas. There are dozens of actions that attract attention - negative attention from cops. Take a look at yourself. If you’re screaming for attention from a cop, you’ll get it. If you don’t want attention, don’t fit the profile they’re looking for.

Having said that, sometimes there is nothing you can do about the attention you attract. “Wrong place, wrong time, bad luck, officer having a bad day, etc.” Often, it may just be the type of car you drive (but, you chose that car).

We see certain makes and models of cars on tickets much more often than others. Colors? The color red ends up on lots of tickets.
If you keep getting tickets, look at the big picture. Look at you. Do everything possible to fly under the radar and to NOT fit the profile of a lawbreaker. Stack the odds in your favor.
