New Jersey Attorney General Porrino announced the “Safe Stop NJ” program.  The goal of the program is to have every traffic stop to end safely for all involved by providing information for the general public about what to do, and what not to do, during a traffic stop, to ensure that all stops are safe and fair.  A link to the program can be found here http://www.safestopnj.com/

 

Attorney General’s Message

 

Our goal is for every traffic stop to end safely for all involved. To achieve this goal, we have taken various steps, all of which have been directed at law enforcement: All police officers in New Jersey must complete annual training on de-escalation techniques, cultural awareness and implicit bias through our CLEAR Institute; thousands of police officers now wear body-worn cameras; we have improved protocols for investigation of police-involved use of deadly force; and we have promoted innovative community policing through hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants and awards. Our new “Safe Stop” initiative takes the next step by providing information for the general public about what to do, and what not to do, during a traffic stop, to ensure that all stops are safe and fair. Please help us make every stop a Safe Stop.
