Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today.
Yes. This is actually one of the most common questions we are asked.
Since the police officers are licensed by the state then they are allowed to issue tickets, citations, or make arrests anywhere in the state, not just where they are employed. That's why the various task forces don't require that the police officers get hired by the department through which the task force works.
Also, I may get a call and need to leave suddenly so please don't be upset or think I am ignoring you.
I am about to be traveling again for a while and if I am not online when you respond I will pick up and continue later this evening.
