They went into the type of surveillance in there cars and what type of speed measuring equipment they have. One of the devices was a LIDAR speed gun to which I was unfamiliar with but I guess technology has a way of creeping up on you. Both of them brought in "chase" videos which are HD videos that get recorded straight to a hard drive in their vehicle. The video system appends the first 3 minutes of the patrol car to the point where the officer triggers the light bars on his vehicles. They also mentioned that of the 6 officers assigned to traffic they hand out 80% of the speeding tickets for our town.
They officers answered questions on speed limit "forgiveness", valid excuses for speeding, trunk checks and the issue with concealed weapons. Believe it or not I was not the one who asked about notifying the officer about a concealed weapon. But the general consensus it was appreciated if you inform the officer when you are stopped. They even acknowledged that it was not mandatory for Idaho but politeness counts when dealing with the police.
We were also shown the differences about the two types of stops that traffic deals with; felony and misdemeanor. Misdemeanor is the less dynamic of the two and it usually consists of one officer walking up to the vehicle and checking the back and front seats for threats. The Felony stop is where multiple officers are used to "funnel" the person back to the police cars. This was later demonstrated by the police officers in the parking lot. Ideally this is done by 4 officers in this scenario. Three to cover the suspects and one who is doing the handcuffing. (A few students were asked to participate as the officers were short handed).
