The Greenburgh Police Department’s Community Affairs Unit will offer an interesting take on traffic stops during a driver’s education class at Maria Regina High School in Hartsdale this Saturday morning.
After a brief classroom session, students and officers will “role play” outside, where the officers will become civilian drivers and students will act as patrol officers. Students will see, literally and figuratively, what an officer sees during a traffic stop, and learn how to conduct and conclude a traffic stop safely and effectively.
“When asked, most new drivers are most afraid of being pulled over,” Greenburgh police Sgt. Robert Gramaglia said. “This class will show the student drivers how to safely interact with the police and, more importantly, how to stay safe on police-initiated traffic stops.”
