Traffic Stop 101 (dwb)

The first meeting of the community education series was held May 24 at Fayetteville State University's Seabrook Auditorium and covered best practices for procedures and behaviors at traffic stops in an effort to address concerns from the community about "driving while black" (DWB).

"We firmly believe that community education is one of the most effective means of empowering the community and commend and support City Council's efforts in assuring that all of the members of our community are treated equally and respectfully by those hired to protect us," said James E. Buxton, Jr., President of the Fayetteville Branch N.A.A.C.P.

The meeting included remarks from Buxton, the presentation of a traffic stop procedure video, and PowerPoint presentations from representatives of the Fayetteville Police Department, who addressed recommendations from the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) study. Information was provided during the meeting about citizens' rights during traffic stops, interacting with police, and the importance of documenting any incident of a police officer acting in an unprofessional manner. PowerPoint presentations and the traffic stop procedure video that were shown during the May 24 meeting are available on this website.
