    Denver, Colorado Ticket Quota Uncovered
    Police officials in Denver, Colorado confirmed that they have placed pressure on rank-and-file officers to issue a minimum number of traffic citations. Since September, those that have failed to produce have faced disciplinary action. "We're always looking at performance," Denver Police Captain Eric Rubin told KCNC-TV. "If an officer is under the average set we might discuss it with the officer." Motorcycle traffic officers must issue at least sixteen tickets in every eight-hour shift. With 26 traffic officers, that quickly adds up to 100,000 tickets per year and more than a million in revenue. All of the city's other officers have a reduced ticket quota to fill, in addition to their regular duties. Rubin insisted that these requirements are not a quota. Instead, they are a "measure of performance."

    mm good old denver.

    Is this JUST Denver pd or all metro police. I never had any problems w/ Denver but the asshole Jeffco sheriffs deputy's are horny to pull anyone over for any reason.

    If i had stayed in Denver, which i may move back I would definitely have moved out of Jefferson County. 1 because the sheriff's are dicks and 2 they had emissions testing.
