Why would a police car follow me home?

So, when a police officer is tailing you, they are just doing their job of keeping the streets safe. That said, they might have a reason for suspecting you of doing a crime. The police officer has the right to follow you to your house, and it’s legal for them to do so.

How long can a police car follow you?

There is no limit on how long a police officer may choose to follow you before pulling you over. In other words, it is up to the officer’s discretion. They can follow you for as long as it takes them to reasonably determine that you might pose a danger to public safety.

Why do police follow you before pulling you over?

First, they are notifying dispatchers to check for wants and warrants, stolen, etc. Sometimes dispatch is busy and the officer must wait. They also try to pull you over in a safe area both for you and for them, and they tell the dispatcher where that stop is taking place just in case.

What should I do if I see a cop following me?

No… what I meant was, when you see the cop following you (or think he’s following), why don’t you make a right turn into the first parking lot you come to, stop the car and see if he follows. If he does, talk to him. If he doesn’t, he wasn’t following you. NRS. (not rocket science)

Why did a cop pull me over for no reason?

In the course of a traffic stop, the police officer had seen marijuana on the defendant’s car floor.

Can a cop detain you for no reason?

An officer who’s unaware of the warrant detains you, but not because you were doing anything wrong. Maybe the officer is speculating that you’re up to no good. Whatever the reason, it’s not reason enough: The policeperson doesn’t have reasonable suspicion that you have committed or are committing a crime.

How often do you get followed by police?

Idk if it’s always the same cop, or different cops, but it’s happened like 3 times in 2 months. Is that normal behavior? What am I doing that makes a cop think I should be followed for 3 or 4 miles?
