Depending on what you mean by law? If a state statute was violated by a law enforcement officer and you want to report it the first thing I would do is contact the law enforcement officer's agency where he or she is employed by. Contact there Internal Affairs department and report the actions to them so it can be investigated. Sometimes police officers live by a code of brotherhood so your next step would be to contact your state's law enforcement agency. Here in Florida it would be the Florida Department of Law enforcement.

yes because if a police officer is off their shift and are speeding they can get a ticket anyway. The average citizen does not have the legal authority to issue a ticket to anyone, police officer or regular citizen. A police officer can issue a ticket to another police officer who is violating the law while not in the performance of their duties.

"A police officer was magistrate for violating his rights in entering a persons home".

The officer always has the right to void a ticket after the fact as well as if he cannot he can forgo going to court on said date and the charges will be dismissed.

A Federal Police Officer also know as 083 Police Officer as a position identifier is a uniformed Police Officer that patrols DOD property. A Police Officer on DOD property issues summons and arrests for crimes that have taken place. Since there is no Federal traffic laws, the Police Officers enforce state motor vehicle laws. When there is an infraction that has taken place on Federal property, and there is no Federal statue to charge the person with, the Police Officer charges the person with the state law.

Police can still press charges against you at a later date even if they decline to right on the spot. Sometimes they might not have enough information to charge you at the time.

If you are a police officer you would not need to ask. A police officer doing his duty will treat another police officer as any member of the public (if they are out of uniform and off duty).

The officer can only make decisions on whether to arrest, cite, or not to arrest, referred to as officer discretion. The officer cannot (honestly) promise leniency of a charge because they do not have that authority. Charges are filed and issued by a prosecutor, not a police officer. Any statements given to a police officer based on a "promise of leniency" without the prosecutor's cooperation will be considered coerced and inadmissible.

Once an arrest has been made, the charges can be dropped only by the prosecutor's office. The police cannot withdraw the charge.

First, try not to break the law. They won't bother you if you're not violating any laws. This includes not speeding, jaywalking, taking drugs, etc. If you are questioned by a police officer, your valid responses should be: 1. Yes, officer. 2. No, officer. 3. I require an attorney, officer. That's it.

For the word Officer the abbreviation is "OFC." For Police Officer, the abbreviation is "P.O."
