Police departments instructing their officers to have ticket quotas is illegal in Massachusetts. But lots higher ups do it anyway because they think the law doesn’t apply to them. We saw it with the MSP when FORMER Major Susan Anderson got caught trying to make troopers meet monthly benchmarks.
Cops don’t like quotas because it’s unprofessional and assumes that they won’t do the job on their own. Plus, they’ve got actual crimes to solve, prevent, and investigate. Civilians don’t like it because the single mom coming home from work all of a sudden has to pay for a ticket and subsequent insurance hike premiums when they get busted going 65 in a 55.
But yet it happens anyway. Here’s an email that was sent to the rank and file at the Lynn Police Department from Lt. Dave Brown:
Monthly citation standard? Sounds like a quota to me. We reached out to the Lynn PD to speak to ask them about this, but no one there seems to know anything about quotas. But the email is legit, and it comes from a verifiable source. Perhaps we will get an answer after this blog is published.
Lynn is a shithole. There’s gangs and murders and all sorts of ratchet madness going on. Cops there can’t even get a cup of coffee because SJW poopyheads won’t serve them in their establishments. The cops should be allowed to do their jobs and focus on the important things that need to be done instead of driving around looking to meet monthly quotas so the higher ups can put a nice looking chart together.
