Without proper instruction, New Jersey Motor Vehicle Law can appear complicated and overwhelming. Officers are often shortchanged, and experience difficulty knowing what laws coincide with the applicable offense. Many police officers struggle with knowledge beyond the few suggested offenses on the front of a ticket book. Knowing motor vehicle law is crucial in order to be an effective and proactive police officer. Many of our greatest apprehensions begin on the foundational principles of motor vehicle law.
“Becoming the Title 39 Expert” is meant to enhance every New Jersey police officer’s knowledge of motor vehicle law, while also providing an extreme gain in confidence. Mistakes and embarrassments occur when police officers lack the education to know what they should be doing. This course is designed to provide clarification in relation to questions and myths on what officers can and cannot do.
