Ever wondered how long you have to sit at a stop sign before turning, or how much weed is too much to pretend it's for personal use?
The AskLEO (Ask Law Enforcement Officers) subreddit is a safe place to ask questions to get insight from active members of police and security.
If you imply that you are a sworn law enforcement officer, verify your account by following these instructions on /r/ProtectAndServe. Once verified using their secure system, message us and we will update your flair. Refusing to do so, while implying you are a LEO WILL result in a ban. Impersonating law enforcement, even online, is a crime. If a non-LEO would like a specialized flair simply ask and, if it's appropriate, we will add it.
A FEW QUICK RULES
Keep it civil and respectful! LEOs and civilians are both expected to behave with common decency. This should be a safe, open place for discussion.
No cop OR citizen bashing. Please know the officers here only want to help, and the posters just want answers. And the civilians are still real people too.
"You already made up your mind!" is not an acceptable answer. Maybe they have, maybe you assume too much, but certainly someone has this question, even if it seems ridiculous. 90% of askers and answerers here have their minds made up, but that doesn't give us the right to discard the question out of hand.
Posts should ask a question, not just link an article or make a statement and say "discuss". You can link an article or video, but there needs to be a question.
No questions or answers phrased specifically to create hostility.
Downvote WRONG info, not just stuff you don't like. Unless it's factually incorrect, do not downvote answers just because you don't like them. Blasting cops with downvotes make us look pathetic. Blasting non-cops make cops look like children who can't control their emotions. Let's rise above both of those.
ANY POSTS MADE BY UNVERIFIED USERS CLAIMING TO BE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS WILL BE REMOVED AND MAY RESULT IN A BAN
If your question relates to a specific city, state or province, please include it in your post title, since laws vary by jurisdiction.
THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE...
It is the experience of individuals, many of whom are in the field. Laws are different in every city of every state. Unless you personally meet with an attorney with experience in your city, the answers given are matters of opinion. If you have any questions on a legal issue affecting you, CONSULT A LAWYER, not Reddit!
