Cop's Corner with Captain Cupp

Captain David G. Cupp

Captain Cupp is the daytime shift commander for the Bartlett Police Department. Each week Captain Cupp will provide citizens of Bartlett with information useful to Bartlett residents concerning traffic and public safety and little known facts about the Bartlett Police Department.

This week's topic:
What to do when stopped by the Police

In the unlikely event that you are stopped by the Police we ask that you do the following. For your safety and the safety of the Officers we ask that you pull your vehicle over as far right as you safely can and remain in your vehicle. Please keep both of your hands on the steering wheel and avoid any sudden moves. When the Officer comes to you make eye contact with him and acknowledge his presence. This will make your encounter go as quick and safe as possible. 

We are not here to intimidate or to delay your journey; our only concern is to see that your drive is done safely for you and the others you share the roadway with.

Any Traffic Questions or Concerns feel free to contact me at my email address.
