InitiativesRespect for Everyone

In the MPD video Respect for Everyone, Chief Barber acknowledges that many people feel a little nervous when pulled over for a police stop. It's natural. But it doesn't have to be. MPD Respect for Everyone video uses three different situations to illustrate how encounters with MPD officers can be quick, easy and safe or can turn unpleasant or even dangerous. Three different situations are illustrated: a routine traffic stop, officers seeking entrance to a home after a report of a disturbance and possible injury and officers responding to a report of a suspicious person with a gun. The situation will help you understand how important it is to follow offices instructions to stay safe. Safe Guidelines for Citizens and Police Officers are reviewed.
