Portsmouth PD has a quota, they
don’t want to call it a quota, but when you create benchmarks that
include how many traffic stops and tickets their officers write,
and then evaluate their performance based on these benchmarks, it’s
a quota. This incentivizes officers who understandably want to get
promoted and compensated for doing a good job, to meet these
benchmarks, which creates more traffic stops and more tickets. This
is a problem and we’ll discuss it next on the Freecast.

tickets to drivers who break them.
police union is demanding to bargain with the Police Commission

performance evaluations in March.
