that makes sense rookie, but on the other hand one can't control everything and I have found that when you try to do this it usually just leads to frustration and extra time being focused on babysitting things. the bottom line is some civilians don't care what the LEO thinks, and he/she is not in the wrong when choosing not to notify if it isn't a law. I myself am pro notification for the most part, but I admit I haven't on every occaison. I do know ahead of time when travelling what states require it. I have noticed many officers state it is a law even when it isn't(not speaking my experiences only//I was only told this once personally).
