How often does it happen?

I've seen a few posts where tickets have been thrown out because of this?

And how good a tactic is relying on this?

I assume if you opt for trial and he shows up you can't plea bargain down as you could have with a prosecutor meet (option 2)
in other words has the plea down boat sailed if you go for trial and the cop shows up

cheers

Not as often as it sounds. Officers can't simply not show up on a whim. If an officer doesn't show up, there's usually good reasoning behind it (eg. they've transferred somewhere else).

The option for a reduced charge doesn't change whether the officer shows up. You'll still be offered a reduced charge if there is some room to work with.
