Do Sheriffs write speeding tickets?

I got pulled over the other day, by a county sheriff. He pulled me over, came up to my window, and asked if I knew why he pulled me over. I was about to answer, when he said he thought I was going pretty fast - that he had trouble catching up to me and commented that his car (an Impala) was pretty powerful. Realistically, I'd just gotten on the highway, so I'm sure he wasn't following for long, and I'm pretty sure he didn't have a radar gun or anything because my radar detector was silent and I think he was just coming up behind me on the highway.

Anyway, he continued to estimate I must have been going about 80 (in a 55) as I was getting my registration and license out. He asked to see my license and I handed them over, and he immediately gave me back my registration, saying he wasn't going to write me a ticket. He just looked over my license to see if it was legit I guess, handed it back to me and explained that he didn't want other drivers to get the impression that speeding violations weren't enforced.

Anyway, the whole thing just sounded odd, with him not even going back to his car to run plates, lookup records, take 20 minutes to do whatever, etc... and his being so blatant that he only pulled me over to give the illusion of being hard on speeders. I knew that he wasn't driving a state trooper car since they're all Crown Vics in the area, so as he passed me afterward, I saw it was a Country Sheriff car. And it occurred to me afterward that I don't really know what a Sheriff does, except I'm pretty sure they don't do traffic duty.

Any thoughts?

Sheriffs supplement weak points in a county's force when they need it. They'll use their deputies to say... help a small station do a drug raid, or do the regular beat while said station performs a raid.

They do whatever they please, unless the State Police blocks them.

So I just had a nice guy then... cool deal. I really wasn't speeding as badly as he said since I had just gotten on the highway and was merging with traffic quickly. I hate when someone tries to enter 70MPH traffic at 50MPH and then speed up. It's a pet peeve of mine and realistically, by the time I realized he was behind me (I guess when he caught up), I was in a crowd doing what everyone else was... I guess he noticed.

Anyway, thanks for the info.

Or if you live in New Bedford, like Spoot, you can watch the Sheriffs fight it out with city police over who has jurisdiction while the gangs roam free.

A sherriff or a sherrifs deputy can write a traffic citation. YES THEY CAN. They are a law enforcement officer just like a city or state cop. NO difference in them being able to cite you, so long as your in thier county.

badevo is exactly right. i am friends with almost every cop in my county, beacause i went to high school wiht most of them and partied with all of tehm, haha.. but they do have the ability to write traffic violations. and they will for that matter. almost every ticket i have gotten came from a sheriff, but in another county. i dont get very many where i live.

I swear Sheriffs are the nicest ones. When I was 16, I got pulled over by one (they don't have Police in the area I live in) and he gave me a warning. Two of them found me past curfew when I was in high school, and they just say "time to go". But the highway patrol, that's another story. No nonsence, write you up kind of people. I wonder why?

ATF, just like FBI, Secret Service, Marshalls, etc. are a federal law enforcement entity, and can enforce the law across the country, but cannot give you a ticket. Worst case scenario, they could detain you for the proper authorities to come give you a citiation (state, county, city or sheriff), but they could only do this if you were already stopped, as they do not have marked cruisers which are necessary to pull you over. As a side note (before some of you argue about getting pulled over by an undercover cop car) you do not have to stop for a random car with a blue strobe light, even if he is a cop. In this case you can drive slowly to nearest police station, or populated area, then have the office call a marked cruiser... But the point is, traffic tickets are a state and local matter, no federal agency (with a few exceptions in DC) can give you a ticket for it. they dont even have ticket books on which to write them.

sheriffs on the other hand, most certainly can. sheriffs are a lot like the federal marshalls dealing with courthouse security, jails, convicts, landlord issues, and supplemental law enforcement where they see fit, including traffic citations. The usually are the most lenient over traffic issues, b/c its not really their prime concern, but if they see someone doign something wrong, they'll let you know. State troopers are the worst about traffic citations, b/c thats mostly all they do.

are you saying that if a undercover cop puts on his lights we don't have to stop???? we could drive to the nearest dispatch station???? Maybe I'm not clear on that

That is correct. This is a little known fact that has actually resulted in some carjackings, assaults, and even rapes. Criminals would hop into a hooptie, white, ex police car bought at an auction, acquire a blue revolving light, pull over a nice looking car in a desolate stretch of road, and jack the car, mug the owner, etc. You only legally have to stop if it is a marked cruiser with a uniformed officer inside.

This does not mean if you see an undercover car trying to pull you over you can ignore him and continue on your merry way to work or wherever. you need to acnowledge the car by slowing down, getting in the right lane, turn on your hazard lights, then proceed either to an area where you feel safe, or to a police station. you can also call the police station on your cell phone (try to use nonemergency number via operator) and have the dispacher verify that it is a real cop car, and if they cannot verify (could be diff jurisdiction) have them dispach a marked cruiser to meet you and the undercover car.

be warned that if you do this, you have basically eliminated any chance of getting a warning instead of the stiffest ticket possible since the cops wont be happy of going to all the trouble, but they cannot hit you with refusing to stop or evading capture charges. Only do this if you fear for your safety.
