FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions

I saw an officer “bust” an intersection with his lights and siren only to turn them off when he/she got down the road. What was he doing?

Sometimes an officer responding to an emergency call is cancelled and this is why he/she may appear to be using his/her lights to get through an intersection. Officers sometimes are also required to turn off lights and sirens when approaching an address where a “stealth” approach is necessary.
