BPD traffic stops: What you need to know

June 9, 2021

The Bartlesville Police Department and the Westside Community Center of Bartlesville are teaming up to present “Traffic Stops: What should you know.”

The event will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. on June 26 at WCC, 501 S. Bucy Ave.

BPD officers will present information concerning what to do if you are pulled over by a police officer — including stops with which you might not agree.

“We feel it is very important for the citizens of Bartlesville to know and understand what to expect from our officers on a traffic stop,” said Police Chief Tracy Roles. “It is also important for our citizens to understand what they should do on a traffic stop.

“This event will give an in-depth look into what a traffic stop looks like from a broken down perspective. The goal of the event is education and understanding so that everyone involved with the traffic stop can be safe and informed.”
