Do's and Don't's of Traffic Violations

Driving Directions

Sheriff Jim Neal joins EmpowerU with other law enforcement officials and attorneys who will discuss traffic safety and the do's and don'ts when you are stopped by law enforcement. What are the expectations of you? What should you expect from the Officer? How do we recommend you act or respond? What if you have a weapon in the vehicle? Do you have your CCW license? What are your legal rights? What happens in the Court process? 


Every day citizens might not come in contact with law enforcement on a regular basis 
(hopefully not).

Come hear from Sheriff Neil and professionals who work in the field every day what you need to know to be better educated and prepared.
