The majority of police officers are very friendly and you can have a good conversation with them inside the police station but they don't always approach the public in the same way.

Let's see, got stopped back in high school. We were walking from one friends house to another, but it was at night so they stopped and questioned us.

Once I got called into the police department for questioning because the safe at work got emptied. Of course I hadn't taken it and my story checked out so nothing happened aside from me being the scape goat and losing my job.

I got arrested in high school for having a party that got out of hand. I've gotten pulled over and given a speeding ticket twice. I got stopped another time but only got a warning for an out of date sticker.

I have nothing, but respect for men and women who serve as police officers.
Their job is tough.
Most are respectful.
But they are there to arrest those who break the law.

Never, except at Airports. And the tax office in Spain, where they have a full search on everyone entering :?

Winston Smith wrote:Yes, a few times in actual fact. Many years ago, I used to work an early shift at a factory from 6am until 2pm. This required me to catch a bus from the town centre at 5am and I would get stopped walking to the bus stop by police on patrol asking me where I was going at that time and they would also look in my bag (which contained nothing more than food, soft drinks and a book). It didn't bother me at all and they were always very polite during and apologetic afterwards.
