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.
