Safety Tips when pulled over or approached by a police officer:

- If pulled over, turn on emergency flashers for your vehicle and turn on interior lights when stopped.

- If possible, pull into a well-lit area.

- Check to see if the vehicle is marked (Police decals/markings); if the vehicle is unmarked, the emergency lights should be built into the vehicle. 

- If the officer is in uniform, check for the police insignia/patch, badge, and name tag. 

- If the officer is in plain clothes, ask for identification if you do not feel comfortable. 

- When in doubt, dial 9-1-1.
