Put a sticker inside your window, "Converstions May Be Recorded"....... see what transpires.

as far as i know we all still go over the air, that way if we need help, other units know where we are....and even on the in car computer, our system is very hard, time consuming to go back and check the in-house system, 99% just use a mto online program, gives instant info of expired plates, suspend drivers and no insuranceSquishy wrote:I wonder if it's different since you're HSD and I assume you have a workstation in your vehicle to do simple checks. The guys here call all plates into the com centre - parked, rolling, traffic stop, etc., and the dispatcher runs it through CPIC and ISS. I'd say a comment along the lines of "your marker was run yesterday morning by Peel, nothing given in the comments section" happens about once or twice a day.

I believe the HTA leaves 'obstruction' up to the officer's judgement; if you do not want it on your record there should be some good ways of fighting it. The ways just take time.
